We put a lot of stock in astrology. It can help us find love, a new job, a new friendship or even a new travel destination. What we hadn’t done before was use our zodiac signs to understand what we want our kitchens to look like.

But it sounds genius, right? We spend a lot of time in our kitchens, and just like the rest of our house, we want it to feel "like us.” We spoke with Brigitte Ballard, a design trend expert at N-Hance Wood Refinishing, to get her take on the perfect kitchen for each of the zodiac’s personality traits.

Whether you believe your horoscope is 100 percent accurate or just think it’s a bit of fun, we think these kitchens will inspire you to put more of your personality into your kitchen. Here’s what your zodiac sign says about your kitchen decor style.

1 /12: Aries: March 21 – April 19

1/12 :Aries: March 21 – April 19

Passionate, fiery and courageous, the Aries sign is a known trailblazer. Always the boldest in the group, Ballard says the perfect kitchen for an Aries would have a “daring pop of color, like red.” Want to make an even bigger splash? Add “an island that doubles as a statement piece.”

2 /12: Taurus: April 20 – May 20

2/12 :Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Elegant and practical, the Taurus wants something reliable in their kitchen. Ballard recommends “cognac, browns and neutral tones.” To keep the space from getting heavy, “add a Persian rug under your kitchen table” and consider adding artwork to the room — maybe even behind glass cabinet doors.

3 /12: Gemini: May 21 – June 21

3/12 :Gemini: May 21 – June 21

The most important aspect of any space in the house for a Gemini is whether it can host a social gathering, and that’s no different for the kitchen. Ballard recommends an open-concept kitchen and finding a way to add seating to the room, like putting a lot of chairs around the island. For an extra pop, “add furniture and chairs with bold prints to complement your exotic side.”

4 /12: Cancer: June 22 – July 22

4/12 :Cancer: June 22 – July 22

The Cancer is all about family and home, and they often show their love through food. Ballard says to find a way to include a large, rustic farm table in your kitchen so you can play host for a fun night at home in your most sacred space.

5 /12: Leo: July 23 – Aug. 22

5/12 :Leo: July 23 – Aug. 22

As the most royal sign of the zodiac, Leo loves luxury and has expensive tastes. Ballard says the perfect kitchen for a Leo is “classy and clean with white cabinets and counters.” To up the glam factor, add gold accents and even a chandelier to give the room a regal focal point.

6 /12: Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

6/12 :Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

The patron saint of the type A, perfectionist Virgo wants a kitchen where everything has its place and is clean and tidy. White walls and cabinets do well here. To show off their attention to detail, Ballard recommends floating shelves “to add clean lines and extra storage.” Because part of being a perfectionist is being practical.

7 /12: Libra: Sept. 23 – Oct. 22

7/12 :Libra: Sept. 23 – Oct. 22

Libras are a stubborn sign and are the most likely to follow a minimalist aesthetic. But they also value style and elegance and soft, sweet colors, as they’re a particularly romantic sign. Ballard recommends pastels and florals. If you can afford it, consider a marble-top island and accent with other pops of color, like “soft pink peonies in a large vase and flirty pillows on the island chairs” to bring the kitchen together, Ballard says.

8 /12: Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

8/12 :Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

Scorpios are calm under pressure and can be seen as a little cold — but that’s because they would rather be curled up with a book. A Scorpio kitchen should have light, simple colors, and the best thing a Scorpio can do is make their own breakfast nook. Want to make it even more amazing? “An aquarium can make a fun statement piece that adds a sense of serenity,” perfect for this water sign.

9 /12: Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

9/12 :Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

A Sagittarius appreciates all things antique and faded and is an avid traveler and outdoorsy type, so their perfect kitchen should have a rustic, worn feeling to it. Ballard recommends adding a rustic-chic element by hanging a barn door in front of the pantry. To bring the space from muted to fabulous, add your favorite travel trinkets to the room and “add an herb garden to your windowsill to bring a sense of the outdoors in.”

10 /12: Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

10/12 :Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

Disciplined and practical, the Capricorn is an earth sign and brings that element to their decor too. Natural earth tones like hardwood floors and dark cherry cabinets are going to make them feel most at home. To make the space even warmer, Ballard says to “pull in accent colors of evergreen and navy.”

11 /12: Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

11/12 :Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

The Aquarius is all about modern-chic and futuristic designs. Copper is a strong element for them, and it should be incorporated strongly — even in the ceiling tiles, Ballard says. Pair that with salmon, violet or indigo to make the space feel fresh. The piece that will bring it all together? “A modern gallery wall is a showstopping piece,” Ballard says.

12 /12: Pisces: Feb. 19 – March 20

12/12 :Pisces: Feb. 19 – March 20

Pisces are all about finding their Zen, so their kitchens should help them find peace and have a meditative quality. Ballard recommends “serene sea colors like lilac, green and soft blue” and to definitely add sea-faring elements like a shiplap wall and glass doors. Want a surprising focal point? Add a fountain or ivy plant, Ballard says.
