Kitchen Accessories

decor8plates.jpgEveryone loves kitchen accessories, right? I go through spurts.  I'll take apart all my decorative "stuff" in the kitchen and redo it again. It takes me forever, but sometimes, I just need a new, fresh, look in the kitchen. And, with kitchen accessories, we can get a new look anytime we want. Here are a few accessories that will freshen everything up quick and easy.

First, I'm wild about these little disc plate hangers I spotted on decor8, when my jaw dropped at the perfection of the concept! It makes me want to go out and start hunting for lots of plates. I love how these plates are hung in such a modern way, too.

Here's your source for them, DISChangers.com. How, absolutely, awesome, are these??

These decorative wall art ideas are usually seen in other rooms of the home, but who cares? Be innovative and incorporate these ideas into the kitchen. Very easy to do.  



OK, maybe not what you wished for, but, hear me out...found these "trash chic" trash bags on Apartment Therapy -  Kitchen. The price isn't bad either, I was surprised...$14.95 for 80 liners. Makes trash removal something to look forward to now! Ok, it's a stretch...

I found these plate hangers at AllPlateHangers.com for much less, since I needed a few of them.

Julie, thanks very much!! That's a great find, appreciate it!

Jenn, a little late responding, sorry! I've come across so many plate "walls" recently, it's definitely a trend.

I don't think I've seen this described in such an informative way before. You actually have clarified this for me. Thank you!

Thank you for posting this! I love that collection of plates hanging on the wall... that's a great example of how to do a traditional design in a more modern way. I think it would look great in any kitchen. I'll consider merging traditional and contemporary elements for a similar effect. Thanks again!
