c) Grow Your Lemon Tree

Indoor plants are attractive and relaxing. So, if you want to apply lemon kitchen decor ideas, one of the ways to do so is by planting an indoor lemon tree.

Before planting your lemon tree, ensure the kitchen receives a lot of direct sunlight as the lemon tree needs a lot of the sun. It can be a great way to spruce up a window-filled space.

d) Line Your Shelves with Bowls Containing Lemon

If you have lots of lemons, you can't store them in one bowl. This means that you will need two or more bowls, depending on the number of lemons you have.

Fill your bowls with lemons and stack them up on your shelves. Decorating with bowls of lemon is easy and suitable for any room, not just the kitchen. You can also maximize the impact by lining one set of shelves with citrus.

The bar can never be complete without a few lemons. Not just lemons but also limes and oranges. These citrus fruits are go-to garnishes in cocktails.

You can use the wallpaper to cover the whole wall or just a section; whatever works for you. Wallpapers are great for those who rent, especially if they are removable. This is because you can have your walls as you wish without damaging or changing the original paint.

If you get a wallpaper that is suitable for different surfaces, you can use it on those other areas. A good one can be used on the walls or even the countertop. You can even use it on the kitchen backsplash.

j) Lemon Printed Window Curtain

If your kitchen has access to natural light, you can enhance the decor by using a kitchen drapery with lemon prints. In addition, you can get elegant and beautiful drapes to compliment the lemon decor within the kitchen.

n) Lemon Island

Another great way to enhance your lemon kitchen decor is by painting parts of your kitchen lemon. For example, you can paint the counters in lemon, the kitchen table, or whatever you feel like painting. All you need is the best paint for wood crafts and you can design your kitchen.

p) Tuck Lemons inside a Cloche

If you do not have enough storage bowls and need to store your lemons, you can tuck them in a glass cloche. But first, what is a cloche?

A cloche is an upside-down jar. So you can use it to keep your lemons neat, like any other ordinary bowl. A cloche is also elegant and unique.

q) Spruce Up a Tray

Having serving trays on hand is a terrific idea. You can also use them to tidy up the stray decor in your home when they're not helping you move objects around.

So get to work with your serving tray: Serve it with a bowl of lemons and other kitchen essentials. You can beautify your serving tray—and keep your kitchen counters clean—with just one simple step.

r) Adorn Candles with Lemon-Lined Wreaths

Wreaths can be used for more than just decorating your walls, windows, and doors. They look just as nice lying down as standing up, especially when you tuck ornamentation inside.

So surround your favorite pillar candles with lemon-lined wreaths to glam them up. Ensure that the candles stay inside the vases to avoid potential fires.

s) Cluster Different Fruit Bowls

If you like to have more fruits than just lemons, you can add a different bowl of other fruits. You can use any fruits, your favorites, or those in season.

Your place will look decorated and attractive with more than one type of fruit on your table or the countertop. Of course, there will also be fruits available to snack on.
