For many, the kitchen is the heart and soul of the home. Many of us grew up on homecooked meals and baking delicious goodies with parents and grandparents. Even with busy schedules, the kitchen is a hub for family members looking for a snack, leaving notes, or wanting to sit and rest for a few short minutes.

With functional kitchen accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, any time you spend in this space can be efficient and enjoyable, especially since many of these pieces are also decorative. If you're thinking about incorporating some new decor to breathe life back into this vital space, read on for our tips and ideas.

A Fresh Start on the Walls

Not sure where to start? Consider new wall options that will make a statement on any blank space in your kitchen. Select pieces that are both decorative and functional. This way, you can save space while adding a nice touch to your decor. Our Home Magnet Board and Magnets Set adds a vintage look to your kitchen walls, while providing a space to hold notes, reminders and grocery lists. The Rooster Farm Life Wall Rack adds plenty of kitchen charm and is a convenient place to keep commonly used spices, or even a place to grow fresh herbs. A chalkboard can be useful for posting family appointments, meal plans for the week and other messages, and our Brass Message Board & Replacement Roll offers a convenient way to write shopping lists or notes to household members while adding a vintage look to your kitchen.
