Whether you are doing a total kitchen remodel, or just sprucing it up a bit for the holidays, you’ll want to pay special attention to the kitchen canisters that you choose for your spiffy new kitchen theme. You can easily choose a canister theme or design that will blend with your kitchen decor, as there are many styles and colors to choose from. But the wrong accessories can destroy your perfectly designed kitchen. So let’s take a look a few of the more popular canister designs to determine which one will work best for your own kitchen.

Ceramic Canisters. Ceramic kitchen canisters are a decorating dream as they offer so much more design flexibility. These days, you are no longer stuck with white as the one color available in ceramic pottery. A better choice would be solid colored canisters that come in any color you choose, such as blue, green or yellow. Solid colored canisters are a great choice if your kitchen sports a very busy theme, with lots of patterns in the wallpaper and dishtowels.

But if you kitchen is monochromatic and a bit boring, don’t be afraid to add a fun themed canister set as a focal point. A set of rooster canisters can be fun choice? Or a village of ceramic house canisters? But if a theme is repeated too many times, it can create a claustrophobic effect in the space. So if you chosen design pattern has already been repeated in the wallpaper and other accessories, you will want to stick with a solid color canister that coordinates with the theme without taking it too far.

Glass Canisters. Glass canisters can be a great choice for a very traditional kitchen style. When shopping for kitchen canisters, you’ll find many options that mimick the traditional apothecary jars. The newer versions of apothecary jars now come with airtight lids to help maintain food quality.

Glass canisters are a great choice for a Victorian kitchen, as they can be very ornate in their design, which was typical of the Victorian period. Of coure, they are also available with clean sharp design lines that work well with an ultra-modern kitchen design. The most important thing is to coordinate your canister design with the overall style and theme of your kitchen decor.

Stainless Steel Canisters. Stainless steel canisters are always the best choice for an ultra-modern kitchen. While a glass canister is convenient for viewing its contents, you don’t want to break the sight lines in your modern kitchen by cluttering it up with the sight of dry noodles and navy beans. If you must know what is inside that stainless steel canister, choose a style that comes with a glass lid.

By taking a few minutes to consider the style of your kitchen décor, you can choose a set of kitchen canisters that will enhance, rather than fight, your decorating theme. If you get home and find that your new canisters look hideous with your kichen decor, well, just put them away in the pantry and make use of the extra counter space!
