Art is definitely one of my go-to s for styling kitchen counters. You can casually lean a canvas against a wall like designer Caitlin Murray did here. You could also display a series of prints or paintings in the same frame if you like a more uniform look.
Cookbooks or stacked hardcover books are a great option to keep out on your countertops. In this bright white kitchen by designer Kerrie Kelly she uses a combination of the two. You could even use bookends if you want to amp up the look.
When choosing your kitchen gadgets pick more stylish items that you won t be embarrassed to keep out on the counter. Opt for a bright KitchenAid mixer to display or choose a retro-inspired toaster like in this loft kitchen by Caitlin McCarthy Designs.
Most kitchens have dish soap and hand soap at the sink so you might as well keep them in pretty bottles. In this black-and-white kitchen by designer Christopher Grubb the soap is showcased in two pretty glass bottles and on a metal tray. If you don t have glass pump bottles you can also simply choose a soap that comes in pretty bottles.
Microwave. I don t have a fancy one don t need a fancy one. Forget the word “oven“ — this is a substitute for the top of the range. I cook vegetables in it melt butter and chocolate and yes I ve saved a zillion dollars reheating coffee rather than making a whole new pot. Just the time saved not washing dishes more than pays for this handy albeit mundane convenience.
Plants are a great accent to use when styling your kitchen counters. You can either use one plant like in this kitchen by House of Jade Interiors or use several plants throughout your space. You could even grow fresh herbs and keep those out on the counter.
