It’s difficult to decorate your kitchen as tastefully as the rest of your home, mostly because function has to take priority over fashion, or else you end up with a lot of useless kitchen gadgets.
But what if we told you there’s a way to let your personality show in every appliance, utensil and cookware? They may take a little time to find, but there are products out there that are both stylish and sensible for your cooking space.
Here’s a little inspiration to get started:

While you may not be as into purchasing artfully decorated knives or oil and vinegar containers, this one is a no-brainer: stylish canisters for flour, sugar, or other bulk dry goods. There are so many different styles on sites like Etsy, West Elm and even Target. Since you know that there’s definitely a use for these guys, why not make them look as fabulous as possible?
This would be the perfect example of an instance where you can turn a functional item in your kitchen into a stylish piece with quick swap-out. Plus, the Nessie Ladle is finally in stock and available on Amazon!

The bottles that oil and vinegar come in can be pretty ugly (especially if you buy them in bulk). But, lucky for us, there are hundreds of artfully designed oil and vinegar pourers that are available at a reasonable price. We like these pourers from Etsy.

Take your cooking knives set up a notch with custom design on the blades, like this knife set from Etsy. These are especially appealing if you have an accompanying knife rack hanging on the wall, because they can double as decoration when not in use.
