I have to confess that I am crazy about the farmhouse style on my homestead. I love adding little details that make our kitchen that much more hygge. Now none of these ideas involve a full kitchen makeover. We are currently renting our home, and creating a full farmhouse kitchen is just not in the cards for us.

This means that I have gone looking for the perfect small homestead kitchen decor ideas that will just bring that cozy vibe of hygge even more into our lives, in a budget friendly way.

5 cozy homestead kitchen ideas

Adding hygge to your homestead kitchen doesn’t have to be hard. Here are 10 hygge ideas that are bound to bring joy to any homestead kitchen.

1. Add curtains

2. Find Kitchen canisters – homestead style

Living on a homestead we are lucky enough that we get to grow and preserve a lot of our own food. While I love the taste of the home grown food, I sometimes feel like the presentation of the homemade things could be better if I saved it in some of those cute canisters and not just in the regular old jars. One of the way that I try to make my kitchen look a little cooler is by adding canisters that are fun and pretty to look at.

3. Add homestead wall d├ęcor

If you have space on your walls, a small sign, like this one, or a shelf like this one, might just be the thing that adds a little extra to your kitchen. Now the important think about this is that you feel that the things you add is making you smile more. If you think its only for decoration and all you can imagine yourself doing is to dust it off, then don’t add it. Only bring in the things that makes you happy. Otherwise where is the hygge in that?
