11 Adorable West Elm Finds That'll Make Your Kitchen Totally Pinterest-Worthy

Perfecting your guacamole recipe. Creating that elusive, perfect cronut. Discovering the beautiful contradiction that is salad pizza. There are a million good reasons to roll up your sleeves and spend some serious time in the kichen — and just one thing that might be stopping you. We're talking about the dreaded BKS: that's Boring Kitchen Syndrome.
You know what we mean: mismatched melamine plates from your college days. Old, scratched-up cookware. Never being able to find a fork when you need one.
If that sounds familiar, meet West Elm. The master of affordable home decor has bright, sunny, thoroughly modern pick-me-ups for even the most hopeless of kitchens. Just add a cherry-red sautée pan here, a chic, reclaimed-wood bar there, and behold! Suddenly, your kitchen looks like it's straight outta Apartment Therapy — not Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. Whew — another tragic case of BKS averted.
Shop West Elm's best, straight ahead!
