pretty everything : modern play kitchens and accessories

03.05.21

after a very exhausting ikea hack to customize arlo’s play kitchen, i probably wouldn’t ever do that again! it’s held up great and he still plays with it after all this time, but man it took me a while. i feel like there has been a blowup of cute modern play kitchens in the past couple years so i wanted to round up my favorites in case you’re not interested in DIYing!

i love this minimal kitchen — so clean and simple! ($305)

i love this one a lot, it’s pretty and has a nice small footprint, definitely not cheap but cheaper than some others on here ($399) 

this wood grain reminds me of my real kitchen! also love that this has a fridge in case you have the space for it ($213)

milton & goose definitely makes some of the prettiest play kitchens ever– but they’re expensive! ($649)

this one actually comes with pots and pans and utensils ($158)

love this one! it’s pricey but they’re so beautiful and come in different colors! ($578)

you may not expect it but this is probably the one i would buy– in terms of design and price and if you weren’t a fan of the blue you could just paint it! ($159)

not my favorite on the list, but it’s so inexpensive (and well reviewed) and i think it has a lot of potential! the countertop is really nice as is, but i would probably paint the cabinets before assembling so you could cover up that giant logo ($71)


sadly almost all the accessories i got for arlos kitchen are sold out but i’m aaaalways looking at getting new stuff since he plays with it all — i must have a weakness for cute play food and cute play kitchen accessories because i couldn’t really stop with this roundup. i want so many things lol.
