Happy summertime and the season for hosting and making all the yummy backyard cookout staples! I’m a firm believer that one of the ways to create an enjoyable cooking and entertaining experience starts with elevated tools and accessories in the kitchen. From pretty serve ware to pans that look like they’re a part of the decor, these elevated essentials can transform your space into an extension of the whole kitchen’s aesthetics. Here are just a few of my favorite kitchen items (you may even want to leave some of these out on the island for good!).
When it comes to serving, presentation is key. Pretty serve ware, such as solid wood cutting boards, charming bowls, and quality wooden spoons, can elevate any meal. Whether you're hosting a dinner party or enjoying a cozy family meal, these stylish pieces add a touch of sophistication to your kitchen’s setting.
Aesthetically Pleasing Cleaning Supplies
The kitchen sink sponge: It’s something we use everyday, but can often be such an eyesore. I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way! There are many options for cute and thoughtfully designed kitchen cleaning tools that don’t scream neon yellow or lime green (although there is a time and place for those). Switching out your cleaning tools for something that matches the style of your kitchen is such an easy way to elevate the space.
Jars and Canisters
Organization and storage are vital in a well-functioning kitchen. Beautiful containers allow for easily accessible ingredients and serve as a decor piece for the countertops or open shelving. Opt for canisters crafted from materials like glass, ceramic, or stainless steel with chic or whimsical designs that complement your kitchen decor.
Quality, yet Stylish Pots and Pans
Investing in high-quality pots and pans is a game-changer no matter your cooking skill level. Hey, it may help you feel like you are an even better cook! Choose a stylish set that matches your kitchen's aesthetic that can double as statement pieces on the stove when not in use.
While we love a good kitchen remodel, sometimes simply elevating the basics of a kitchen can really transform and modernize the space. Happy decorating (and cooking), friends!
