Kitchens are the heart of the home and it is important to have a beautiful and comfortable place to meet and greet as well as cook and serve meals. Including so many functions in one room can be difficult to design, but it is definitely doable. All you have to do is consider how to design your French style kitchen so that it complements your china dinnerware and your casual dinnerware. Once you have the basic style down and the color scheme then you will be much better off and more prepared to continue with your design plans. A good example for a French style kitchen is to have a plaque hand painted on tile with the word "kitchen" painted in French. This will add a unique flair to the kitchen and will look nice hanging on a wall. In addition, you can buy French antiques to decorate the kitchen with and really pull off the design scheme. Of course, if you can't afford real antiques you can buy replicas or other French inspired items that do fir in your budget.

An interesting idea is to paint the walls of your kitchen a bright, cheery color that reflects the colors in your dinnerware. Then, find some old French dishes, prints, or antiques or some of all of the above that you can hang on the wall. This will reflect the French style and will certainly be a unique alternative compared to many other design options you have. Of course, if you don't like that particular idea then you can go with different designs that will give you the kitchen of your dreams.

You could look up kitchen designs on French websites to see what is in style today and what the French are using to decorate their homes and kitchens. You can find special painting techniques and the like that will influence you to come up with a unique French design all your own to use in your kitchen. Just make sure that while you are designing your kitchen you make it elegant enough to complement your Waterford crystals. But, if you don't have any Waterford crystals you can decide to buy some since they are a great investment or else you may design your kitchen in a more laid back fashion.
