When decorating your kitchen, it’s not just about furnishings like your kitchen table or what color you want the backsplash. It’s also the color of the appliances you use on a daily basis—the cutlery set and pots and pants you choose. There are so many options when it comes to accessorizing your cooking space. It doesn’t just have to be the standard silver and black. You can choose unconventional colors for your toaster or kettle or buy kitchy oven mitts and matching towels. Your kitchen should represent your style, not what’s the norm amongst kitchens.

Stay true to your decor aesthetic. If you know you prefer a lot of color elsewhere in your home, don’t let your kitchen be the exception out of practicality. If you want your dish set not to match, purchase your dishware separately instead of in a set. If your favorite color is blue, look for a blue coffee maker or toaster. Or even if you can’t use it for cooking prep and it’s just for decoration, have fun with it. Don’t be scared to add a pop of color or a quirky print. All of the things that you purchase to stock your kitchen don’t have to be boring. And if you are looking for a few cute items to spice up your kitchen, here are 12 kitchen items that are cute and conventional.
