Here are some kitchen decorating ideas – take a look:

  1. Install Moroccan tiles on the floor and/or walls – these are handmade by skilled artisans and are a great reflection of Moroccan culture. Tiles are available in different colors, tones, and designs. Use glazed backsplash on the countertops for improved sheen and long-lasting polish.

  2. A kitchen should be brightly illuminated and Moroccan lighting is the perfect way to achieve that! Position a Moroccan chandelier at the centre and cover the rest of the ceiling with intricately carved lamps and lanterns. You can have a lantern as centerpiece for the kitchen table too.

  3. How can a kitchen be complete without utensils? Buy Moroccan cookware like tagine, the traditional clay or ceramic pot used for whipping up delicious stew (also called tagine), or a stainless steel couscoussier, where you can prepare couscous or steam rice in Moroccan style.

  4. Stools and tables are a smart and practical choice for the kitchen. There is a clear reflection of earthy tones and rustic elements in their design. Moroccan Furniture is made using numerous materials, with wood and wrought iron being the common choice as they are sturdy yet comfortable.

  8. This type of Mediterranean décor needs an authentic copper sink with matching fixtures – Moroccan design can be personalized, so choose the size and shape accordingly. It is handmade and uses an exclusive, hammered type of copper as base metal.
