Amish accessories can add a classic feel to any kitchen

by Tom Grimes

Many kitchens today have become completely modernized, with sleek, granite countertops and innovative, energy-saving appliances. However, some homeowners may also choose to offset these elements with classic kitchen accessories that can make a space feel homey and welcoming.

Pieces of Amish handcrafted furniture such as a breadbox can be the ideal centerpiece for a counter that needs a touch of tradition. These sturdy items are available in a number of different styles that are sure to suit any decorating tastes.

The slant front bread box has a conventional design with a distinctive flap that is built to last. For households where bread, bagels and pastries are always in demand, this piece is sure to stand up against constant handling.

For an elegant, standalone item, homeowners may instead consider the oak bread bin with wheat carving, an item with a beautiful wood finish and delicate carving by Amish woodworkers. This piece is equipped with two spacious drawers and a flap, guaranteeing that it can store a variety of kitchen necessities.

Homeowners who are inspired by the hardworking and family-centered values of the Amish may also be interested in the Amish cookbook, which offers dozens of delicious recipes handed down from generation to generation.
