A family of five means lots of dirty dishes. Somedays it seems as if I spend all day standing at the kitchen sink. Since I spend so much time there I thought it was high time I prettied it up.
The kitchen sink is also one of places everyone sees when they visit our home. I want it to reflect my personality with pattern and color.
Let me share how you can Dress Up the Kitchen Sink with five quick tips.
Normally my sink area looks like this.
Yes, I just shared my dish filled kitchen sink. You can close your mouth now.
After a few DIY home decor projects, heartfelt touches, and wonderful lemon scented Softsoap Liquid Foaming Hand Wash the sink looks much better!
Start with No-Sew Kitchen Curtains
Last summer when we added a Super Cheap Bay Window Curtains and the Easiest Curtains Ever, the makeover train never made it’s way over to the kitchen sink.
So the first DIY project I tackled was no-sew kitchen curtains. I followed the same steps as the home office window treatments and kitchen curtain panels. Except this time I used hot glue instead of fusible tape.
I love the punch of pattern and color the fabric adds! Plus this kitchen valance cost nothing because I had everything on hand. Yay for FREE!
Add Plants to the Kitchen
Are these not the cutest little succulents?
I love their fresh, bright green color!
And I really love that they will require no water. Because the succulents are fakey-fake!
Houseplants don’t have a long life near my brown thumb so these faux succulents are perfect. To balance out the double windows above the kitchen sink there is one small planter on each side.
Soften Up with Colorful Kitchen Towels
New kitchen towels are an inexpensive way to add more color. We all know how yucky kitchen towels can get so I like to refresh our towels every once in a while.
The boys bought me this one while Christmas shopping with Honey. It makes them so happy that I have it proudly displayed above the sink.
Because I do spend so much time standing at the kitchen sink I want to add a bit of personality to the space. Little Boy gave me this small turtle several years ago. He bought it at a country fair with my parents. It is a sweet piece that makes my heart happy.
Our family handprint artwork is another piece I love dearly. I remember chasing all three children down that day to trace their little chubby hands. Wish my babies were still that little!
Indulge in a Great Smelling Soap
Just think about how many times you wash your hands throughout the day. Don’t you deserve a great smelling hand soap like Softsoap Liquid Foaming Hand Wash?
Kitchen Citrus Bliss is the finishing touch to dress up the kitchen sink! I love the foaming soap and refreshing smell.
Softsoap liquid foaming soaps are easy to find at your local Walmart on the Health and Beauty aisle. These are premium foaming hand soaps at a great everyday price at Walmart.
Isn’t the change amazing? With a few DIY projects, great accessories, and Softsoap Liquid Foaming Hand Wash dressing up the kitchen sink can be fabulous!
Our family also enjoys Whipped Cocoa Butter and Jasmine & White Cotton foaming hand soap in our bathroom.
All the scents are my favorite but I really love the Kitchen Citrus Bliss. It makes my hands smell so good as I make dinner for our family.

First of all, I LOVE the curtains. The house I live in now doesn’t have a window over the sink and I really miss that. I always loved looking outdoors while washing dishes. I love your ideas for your sink area. I use that hand soap and love it. Love the smells.
Your before picture looks a lot like my sink every day! I love how you spruced it up. The turtle is my favorite- so sweet!
I love the sweet little turtle too! It was a gift from one of my sons.
Love it! I really need to do this because right now my kitchen….yeah, we won’t go into that. I especially love the succulents! they are so CUTE!
We hosted Easter dinner this year and my kitchen looks like a bomb went off! But I’ve got pretty curtains! 😉
I love the personal touch of the framed hands. Always great to glimpse at while doing dishes.

I do love softsoap! It is all we use at my house. Your window treatments look great!
Your no sew curtains are just gorgeous! Your sink area looks so beautiful – color me inspired!
What a great dress up! I hate my kitchen now because I don’t have a window near the sink. I loved that in our old places…it makes washing the dishes less of a drag…LOL
A pretty sink does make doing dishes less of a drag! Thanks so much for the sweet comment!
Sam @ PancakeWarriors says

Thanks so much, Heather! The lemon hand soap smells so yummy!
I would pick the citrus as well! And I love your dressed-up kitchen sink! The handprints artwork is adorable and those faux succulents are amazing. You totally fooled me! And I’m going to copy some of your decor. Beautiful!

ooooo – love the succulents! I am a total believer in the power of green. Add life where you can!
I love my fakey fake succulents too! They do add such a great pop of color to the kitchen sink. Thanks so much for the great comment!
Laura Masse says
Ashley as always everything you do looks fabulous!! Now…my real question is how do you keep it looking like that, because even if I tried to dress up my kitchen sink area your wouldn’t notice over the mas massive amount of dishes 🙂
Girl ~ you know my kitchen doesn’t stay looking this fabulous! But it does look better with all the pretties around it! 😉
Kimberly Edgerton says
Omg Ashley! I so want to come to your house! Miss seeing you, girl. Everything looks amazing!
Aww! Thank you so much, Kim! It’s so much fun to play house and make everything pretty. Hope you are having a wonderful year teaching this year!
Carrie This Home says
My kitchen looks a lot like your before picture! Glad to see I’m not the only one! I got the chance to try out these soaps too and I love them! My favorite scent is the Jasmine and White Cotton because it’s so light and fresh. Thanks for these great tips–you’ve now inspired me to make a couple changes to my kitchen sink.
What a difference! I love your no-sew curtains!
Thank you so much, Christine! My newest no-sew curtains really do add a lot of color to my kitchen sink area.
Angela, blue i style says
It all looks great, but that handprint art is my fave! Thanks for linking up at The Creative Circle!
I love that handprint art by the kitchen sink too! It’s one of my favorite DIY pieces. And I even made it before I began the blog! 😉
Samantha K says
Great tips! I love how the Softsoap bottles look and fit right into the room! Also, those curtains are awesome! #client
Thanks so much, Samantha! I love my new kitchen sink area and yummy smelling soap!
Mary Jo says
Your sink is so CUTE! It looks like a petty picture frame now. I am so doing the curtains like you. And I’m heading to Walmart now. That soap is perfect. Thanks for all the great ideas.
YAY! So excited you have been inspired by my cleaned up kitchen sink!
Cat @ therusticwillow says
I love that you’re using fake succulents.. you can’t even tell. They’re gorgeous! I’m the worst with plants, so I think I might copy you!
Fake succulents are my newest friend! Plus they came from the Dollar Tree! Isn’t that crazy?
