Chef decor can range from very formal to very whimsical, so choosing appropriate items is often a matter of determining the atmosphere of the room you are decorating. There are fat chefs, French chefs and somber-looking chefs to choose from, so you can pick one style of chef decor or a combination of several. A chef holding a menu board is often a focal piece and a must-have when decorating with chef decor, and the menu board is often a functioning chalkboard for a home chef to list the day's menu.
Available chef decor items include an abundance of serving dishes, such as chefs holding up the ends of an olive dish, chefs serving as the base for a salt and pepper set, and a chef sitting atop a round dish used to cover cheese. Canister sets are available with pictures of chefs on them and also are offered in various chef shapes. Chef oil burners, cheese cutting boards and egg holders are also available. Coasters, salad serving forks and cruet sets are also available in chef motifs.
Dinnerware, including chef plates, cereal bowls and salad bowls, are available for use and display. Utensils, such as chef cake servers, bread knives and pizza slicers, are also functional chef decor items. Useful, chef-themed items are also available in the form of paper towels holders, toothpick holders and kitchen scrubber holders. Napkin rings, stove covers and place mats also are available in chef themes.
Wall clocks featuring chefs, along with wall hooks and refrigerator magnets can add to your chef decor. Chef-inspired salt and pepper mills, utensil holders and napkin holders are also available. Trivets, coffee mugs and cheese spreaders are also offered in chef themes. Other decorative utensils include basting brushes, peelers and cheese and herb shakers.
Textile chef decor items are numerous and include chair cushions, oven mitts and curtains. Embroidered, appliqued and printed chef-themed hand towels are also offered. Cloth mixer, blender and toaster covers are also available in chef themes. A single chef hat or an assortment of hats can also be used as chef decor.
The majority of chef decor is likely used in a kitchen or dining room, but you may want to add some chef touches to other rooms. Decorating options include a chef-themed magazine rack, throw rug or statue. There also are a wide variety of chef figurines available and many types of framed chef prints as well.
