Update Your Kitchen Decor with Functional Accents

For many, the kitchen is the heart and soul of the home. Many of us grew up on home cooked 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, that way you can save space while still remaining stylish. Our Home Magnet Board and Magnets Set adds a vintage look to the walls of a kitchen, while adding a space to hold notes, reminders and grocery lists. The Antiqued Wall Phone Clock may not send calls your way, but it will tell you the time and it offers a hideway cubby that includes metal hooks for hanging keys. A chalkboard can prove to be useful for posting family appointments, meal plans for the week and other messages, and our Empire Wall Mount Dryer adds a vintage look to your kitchen and each arm can hold and dry hand towels, dish towels or even fresh herbs.
