1.A KitchenAid stand mixer that'll make you feel like a star baker every time you use it. Cabinets may come and go, but this baby is forever.
2.A pair of wall-mounted utensil racks for an easy (and aesthetically pleasing) way to keep your favorite pots, pans, and cooking supplies within reach.
3.A set of storage containers because practically anything looks better when it's decanted into a clear receptacle (just ask Khloe Kardashian). But these are not just for looks — they have airtight lids to keep your snacks fresh for longer.
4.A peel-and-stick mosaic tile backsplash so you can get a ~luxe~ gold and marble finish without having to splurge on actual marble tiles.
5.Or, peel-and-stick stone veneer tiles that really should be called, "I can't believe it's not real rock!"
6.A cute and practical kitchen island with drawers, shelves, and a waterproof countertop made of solid wood for anyone who struggles with storage and prep space. Plus, the wheels allow you to push it out of the way when you need to.
7.A sleek Simplehuman paper towel holder because there's absolutely no reason why paper towel holders should take up precious counter space. This wall-mounted version is ~extra fancy~ thanks to a tension spring that provides just the right amount of resistance to allow you to tear off one sheet at a time.
8.A chic glass globe ceiling light to replace that eyesore of a boob lamp that seems to be built in every older kitchen. (Someone please explain why those are so popular to me.)
9.Or, a simple pendant light that'll hang perfectly over a kitchen sink, kitchen island, or breakfast nook. Chef's kiss.
10.A motion sensor trash can for anyone who wants to feel like they're living in the year 3000. Forget holograms, lids that open on their own are where it's at.
11.An attractive knife block set from Martha Stewart's line so you can feel like the queen of home and hospitality herself while you slice and dice.
12.A wine bottle and glass rack to maximize your under-cabinet storage and save you from buying a whole darn bar cart.
13.A DeLonghi coffee and espresso machine that'll be the crown jewel of your little cafe corner. No need to get a separate milk frother or drip maker — this one can do it all. We👏 love👏 options👏!
14.A set of rustic wooden shelves, if you're considering open storage as an alternative to traditional cabinetry.
15.Brushed gold bar pulls so you can instantly elevate your cabinets without having to replace them entirely.
16.A Cuisinart stainless-steel cookware set to finally say goodbye to the miscellaneous collection you've had since college. Nothing says ~adult~ like matching pots and pans.
17.A set of glass food containers that'll make leftovers look so much more appetizing. They're also great for meal prepping and can go from the fridge/freezer to the microwave to the dishwasher.
18.A GE 7-in-1 toaster oven and air fryer, if you're tired of having a bunch of different small appliances cluttering your kitchen counter. This multi-tasking machine has a large capacity and heats up quicker than a traditional oven, which makes whipping up a quick dinner less of a chore.
19.A pantry cabinet for anyone who's seriously rethinking how their nonperishables and dinnerware are stored after bingeing the latest home organization show on Netflix.
20.A magnetic spice rack to keep your ever-growing collection out of the way but still easily accessible. There's simply no ~thyme~ to dig through the drawers for what you need.
21.A surprisingly versatile wicker rattan counter stool — they're not just for beach houses anymore. These will look perfectly at home, whether you have a country kitchen or a compact kitchenette.
22.A fizzy drink maker for anyone who wants seltzer on demand but hates the idea of accumulating endless cans and bottles. You can make tons of carbonated combos by adding flavors and fruit slices, or you can inject some ~bubbles~ into your beverage of choice, like juices, cocktails, or wine.
23.And a splurge-worthy nugget ice maker so you can take any regular ol' drink to the next level. If you've been chasing the high of Sonic's chewable ice since childhood, then this may be what you're looking for.
24.A John Boos maple wood cutting board with stainless-steel handles you'll probably use every day. According to reviewers, this can double as a stove cover, serving board, and countertop for a small kitchen island.
25.A stunning marble pastry cutting board that'll make any baker say, "I ~knead~ this!" It's naturally non-stick so you don't have to add a ton of flour before rolling, and it can double as piece of decor when it's not in use.
26.A wall-mounted shelf made of reclaimed wood for a clever way to hold your coffee, teas, spices, and food-themed knick-knacks.
27.A five-piece dining set so you can create an eat-in kitchen with all the cozy, casual vibes. The table doubles as a counter for food prep and a homework table for the kiddos. Plus, there's some shelves for extra storage (so go ahead, buy another seasonal mug if your heart desires).
28.A metal wire basket to hold random bags of snacks, potatoes/avocados/onions, plus the two kiwis you bought on a whim — and make them worthy of display. It's really the key to reaching your Pinterest pantry goals.
29.A Le Creuset enameled kettle that'll make tea time feel extra special and will look adorable on the stove when it's not in use.
30.An industrial-style baker's rack you can count on to pull its weight in a small kitchen. It's designed to hold a standard microwave and there's plenty of room for other small appliances, dry ingredients, coffee cups, and maybe even some decorative plants.
