Pretty things just work better! 5 items everyone should have in their kitchen

We all want pretty things in our homes.

It’s true that when our home is filled with lovely details, we are happier in the space. In the kitchen, a beautiful goblet or a colorful bowl can bring us joy just at the sight of it. But did you know, pretty things work better?

Amanda Herring shares that there are studies of how aesthetics have an impact on our emotional state. She said, “When we are happy, we are more creative and can consider more approaches to a problem. Having beautiful things help us to function better, and therefore make our kitchens more effective.”

Amanda shared five items that can bring “bliss” to your kitchen.

  • Colorful mixing bowls
  • Collectibles
  • Cookbooks
  • Cutting boards
  • Wooden tools

Keep pieces with beauty and meaning in plain sight to make your space spark joy and motivation.
