There is something about spring and warmer weather that makes me want to do a total refresh in every room of my house! I have shared my dining and living room with you guys, and today I’m sharing 7 easy swaps to add spring charm to your kitchen!
Earlier this year I shared different ways to add to charm to your kitchen, but a lot of the ideas included in that post were DIY Projects like adding faux beams or incorporating a feature wall.
Today I want to focus on everyday items – things you use daily that you can easily swap out in order to add more charm to your kitchen space.
It’s not always possible to make major changes in your home, especially if you’re renting or financially unable. But these simple swaps are for everyone!
I truly believe that mundane tasks can be made beautiful! If we have to look at these things every single day, they might as well bring us joy.
The first item swap you can make to add more charm to your kitchen is to switch up your linens. Think about your kitchen towels, oven mitts, and aprons.
I love shopping at Marshall’s and Home Goods for beautiful, vintage inspired linens. You can usually find a pack of 3 for five or six dollars! If you don’t have either of those stores near you, I’ve linked some similar to mine, here!
If you have to wash dishes, it might as well be a beautiful experience, right?! Haha! There are so many ways you can add vintage charm to your dishwashing station.
Rather than leaving a bottle of dish soap next to your sink, consider purchasing a pretty soap pump like this one to add more character!
My pretty wooden scrubber is from Marshall’s, but I’ve linked a similar one here!
You could also consider a pretty soap dish to set your sponge or scrubber on. The white one I have was my Grandfather’s, and it’s the prettiest little ironstone dish.
Salt and Pepper
If you cook often like I do, you probably use a lot of seasoning! I keep two small, marble jars out on my counter for both my salt and my pepper. It makes it so much easier to season veggies, soups and sauces, and I love how handy these are!
My salt bowl was thrifted, and the pepper dish was a gift from a friend. Again, I’ve linked some similar for you if you love the look of mine! 🙂
In most cases I’m using my Kitchen Aid mixer for things like cakes and breads, but once in a while my beautiful stoneware bowls come in handy and I love leaving them out on my counter.
They have so much charm and character, and they are perfect for storing fruits and veggies or for allowing your bread to rise.
Cutting Boards, Wooden Spoons and Rolling Pins
Last year I had a post all about my thrifted kitchen items, and I’m pretty sure I included all of these things in that post. Cutting boards, wooden spoons and rolling pins are all everyday items that can be swapped out for something more charming.
I love to look out for these items at thrift stores and garage sales, but if you would rather purchase them brand new you can find some lovely options at…you guessed it! Marshall’s or Home Goods!
It’s temping to go for plastic when it comes to storing things like flours and oats, but consider leaving some glass canisters out on your counter, instead.
There is something about glass that adds so much more character, and whenever I go to get ingredients out of them they put a smile on my face. I actually purchased mine at Walmart if you want to grab the same ones!
And while we’re talking about glassware, think about glass cake stands as well! Whenever I bake homemade breads or cakes, I love to be able to leave the fruit of my labor out on display. There is nothing more homey and lovely than fresh baked goods sitting out on the counter!
My cake stand was a thrift store find, but I have you covered if you’re looking for one similar!
The last swap I have for you today goes along with the glass canisters, but consider adding some scoops to your jars. There are so many amazing options that have that wonderful vintage feel.
My stainless scoop came from Amazon! I love it and I really want to purchase a few more. But keep an eye out at thrift stores for vintage scoops, as well! This charming copper cup measure was a gift from my mom, and I love how it looks in my kitchen.
Here are the 7 swaps listed for a quick reference for when you are wanting to refresh your kitchen space like me:
- Dishwashing Tools
- Salt and Pepper
- Mixing Bowls
- Cutting Boards, Wooden Spoons and Rolling Pins
- Glass Canisters
