A baker’s rack that will give you a whole new reason to bake! This piece has four open shelves, a wire basket, and six hooks for easy accessibility.
A kitchen runner rug to hide all the crumbs that fall onto the floor under the sink. A low pile rug is a great way to add some color and comfort to any area. Especially if you aren’t in a place to update your floors, this is an easy and affordable fix.
A marble paper towel stand that will modernize a basic kitchen accessory. Made of 100% marble, this stand won’t tip, sending your paper towels into a wet sink.
An expandable spice rack, because even your spices should have some room to breathe. Upgrading your spice cabinet may not improve the overall look of your kitchen, but it will definitely improve the efficiency and will make you feel better about the space. But this natural wood one is so pretty that you could even display it on the counter!
A freestanding island that’ll give you some extra food-prep, storage, and seating space with the drop leaf table top. While this piece looks very traditional, it’s a great way to update the kitchen without the price tag of a custom, permanent island.
A set of counter height bar stools, because this is an easy, chic way to spruce up your kitchen seating. Between the armless design and “barely there” legs to stand on, these bar stools are sure to add a trendy touch to your bar. They come in five colors to match any kitchen color way or add some color to a neutral room.
A set of four glass cylindrical canisters that’ll display your go-to grains and spices on your kitchen counter. With air-tight twist lids, your contents will stay and look fresh as they act as edible decor in everyone’s favorite room in the house.
A soda organizer to keep the inside of the refrigerator stacked to perfection. Put your favorite flavor of La Croix inside of the storage bin and use the lid as a shelf for everything else. Upgrading your food organization within cabinets and whatnot can be just as impactful as upgrading the outside of your kitchen!
A pot rack that doubles as a bookshelf, because not every home has enough cabinet space (I know mine doesn’t). So you may as well show off your pots and pans in a stylish way. Display your cookbooks on top to create an intentional space, just by mounting this to your wall!
A not-so-traditional-looking set of four wooden spoons that are a modern twist to an every-day item. Made with 100% pakka wood, the coloring won’t fade or bleed during use or in the dishwasher.
A sleek cheese slicer – it’ll add a new element to your charcuterie collection. This dishwasher-safe slicer is pretty enough to display on your cheese board while hosting, and is extremely functional with its nonslip handle and nonstick blade. Bring this from kitchen to table for uninterrupted snacking!
A wooden salad bowl that will become a staple in your kitchen. When it’s not being used to serve veggies, you could use it as a center piece filled with florals or fruits. This bowl with a matching spoon and fork is a beautiful way to update your serving dishes!
A salt shaker and pepper grinder, because the Morton salt girl needs a break. Put her back in the cabinet and let these pretty shakers hang out on your table for a bit. Made from acacia wood, these matching shakers have a twist mechanism for easy seasoning.
A programable coffee maker that will have coffee ready for you by the time you get out of bed! It even has an auto pause feature, putting the brew on hold once you pick up the first cup so you can always have fresh, warm refills. Control the strength of the brew with the touch of a button and you have got yourself an endless supply of perfect coffee. This is a big upgrade from your 8-cup-only coffee maker.
A glass candy jar with a metal lid to stylishly stash your favorites treats in. A wide opening means easy snacking, and they’re perfect for storage inside or outside of the pantry.
A 10-piece set of condiment jars, because obviously your condiments just have to be displayed in a luxurious way. Throw out the unappealing plastic bottles and elevate your table scape; these microwave- and dishwasher-safe jars are great for hosting! They could also be used for sugar to keep out on your kitchen counter.
A handheld food vacuum sealer that’ll keep food fresh much longer than any resealable bag every could! Toss those out and give your leftovers a longer life span with this rechargeable, air-sucking device.
An expandable kitchen table that can be adjusted to any kitchen size! Available in three different colors, this table is rustic, yet current to keep your space fresh. Transform the shape from a circle to an oval just by adding the center leaf in when and if needed.
A set of two retro velvet dining chairs (or more) to really step up your seating game. I keep thinking how amazing these would look with the table mentioned above; the juxtaposition of the classic wood against a modern chair would be such a cool combination. And now I think I need to redecorate to make this set up happen for myself.
A marble and wood cake stand to update your baking dishes. This could even be a great addition to your new baker’s rack! Show off your baked goods on this modern stand or keep it out every day to place your decorative pieces on.
A gold flatware set, because you can never have enough forks and spoons. Mine sit in the dishwasher until I run out of clean utensils and finally decide to run it, so this would definitely save me some efforts. And it helps that they’re pretttyyyy.
A marble serving stand that can do more than just serve desserts…while it’ll sit pretty on your kitchen counter, it can also be used as a desk or TV tray. Ask the below reviewer, she used it as a laptop stand!
A cake slice server for all your pie/dessert/quiche serving needs. It’s bound to be an upgrade to your standard old cake slicer — it has a blade that slides forward for easy release, is serrated on both sides for the ambidextrous (and everyone else who is just right or left handed), and is detachable for easy cleaning.
An abstract floral painting that’ll make your kitchen look like the beach side of Provence (I’ve never been so I’m dreaming, okay). At first, I thought this painting was of oranges…turns out their just orange tulips. It all works either way. It comes framed and easily hangs with a D ring or can rest against a wall.
A set of 12 assorted glassware, because it’s high time to throw out the plastic cups from fast food restaurants, and law firms or dentists that used them as shameless promotion. These glasses look high-end and will effortlessly match any of your other glassware.
A stainless-steel ice bucket, because even your ice should have a nice home. This is a beautiful addition to your bar cart or counter top to keep ice as, well, ice for hours on end.
A step stool that you don’t have to hide in the pantry because it doesn’t go with your kitchen aesthetic. Although it folds up for easy storage, this three-step stool has beautiful hardwood construction that’s pretty enough to keep out for easy access.
A stone pitcher/vase, because you can never have too many vases. This one just happens to work to pour drinks with, too!
A dual compartment trash can that will keep you on the recycling path. Not only will this trashcan update your kitchen, it’ll improve the state of the environment! The stainless steal is covered in a nano-silver clear coat to protect the can from germs and fingerprints. Every parent’s dream. And mine. Visible finger prints are enough to drive me wild. A wide foot petal opens the lid with patented Lid Shox technology for a soft close every time.
A pendant chandelier so you can finally ditch the florescent ceiling lighting. This five-bulb chandelier is very farmhouse-meets-penthouse, creating an interesting and elegant atmosphere for your kitchen. This linear lantern should probably be installed by a professional, but it’d probably be worth every penny!
A four-sheet set of peel-and-stick backsplash tiles that will easily upgrade the wall above your sink. These heat-resistant tiles are an easy DIY that are guaranteed to stick after 48 hours until the end of time. Or until you redecorate again. Each pack of four covers 2.42 square ft to spruce up your kitchen in a nonpermanent way. Sick of these after a few months? Pick a new set and start fresh.
