3. Hang your trivets on wall. Another great way to decorate while saving space and keeping useful kitchen essentials right on hand, is to hang your trivets on wall. A collection of antique trivets makes an especially nice kitchen wall arrangement, but modern ones work really well too. Use solid colors or patterns to match rest of your kitchen decor, or choose trivets that have pictures on them so your kitchen wall will have pictures on it when trivets aren't in use.
Other things I like to hang in kitchen for both space saving purposes, decorative accents, and to have on easy hand at all times include: a manual can opener, measuring cups and spoons, serving utensils, and coffee mugs. These items usualy hang under my cabinets because they don't work well on walls.
So there you have it. Use what you already have hidden away in kitchen to create a cozy, warm, inviting and decorative kitchen atmosphere!
