Wood Pedestals, Trays, & Footed Stands in My Kitchen

Wooden boxes, trays and supports in my kitchen

SDetails embedded in a space can add function as well as warmth and character. One of my favorite ways to do this in my white kitchen is to bring more contrast with cozy textures with wooden pedestals, trays, and freestanding stands. It’s such a simple thing to do, but it makes a difference!

A free-standing or pedestal is what I call an elevator, it elevates the impact of the pieces on it! Handy but pretty soap dispensers or scrub brushes feel more special when they’re on a tray or pedestal. A free-standing tray can hold a few items to make them feel more connected. Trays, pedestals or racks can also be used to visually elevate items, giving them more height or a sense of importance.

I have also used “elevators” like this on the tables (see my books Simple Gatherings, Simple Decorating, and Simple Organization for ideas!). They are a versatile item for decorating as well as serving! Many decorative pieces in my house have a dual role, they are pretty to look at but also have a purpose.

Hope this inspires you to look for ways to add warm textures and functional yet decorative items to your home!
