Kitchen Crochet Home Décor Ideas

Dishcloths and Scrubbies

Replace store-bought options with durable, reusable crochet dishcloths and scrubbies. Not only can you save on disposable towels, but you can also contribute to a more sustainable environment.

These are quick-to-make, relatively inexpensive projects that can be customized to suit your kitchen's color palette. Choose festive colors and themed shapes like pumpkins, snowflakes, Easter eggs, or large hearts for the holidays.

Potholders and Oven Mitts

Add safety and style with thick, textured potholders and oven mitts. Patterns featuring intricate stitches or fun shapes can turn these practical items into standout pieces.

Create seasonal sets for Valentine's Day with hearts, leaves, and pumpkins for fall or Christmas trees, snowflakes, or snowmen for a festive look. You can either work with double strands of yarn for an extra protection or crochet two and sew them together.

Placemat and Coaster Sets

Unleash your creativity by creating a matching set of placemats and coasters to protect your table surfaces while adding a cohesive look. Choose patterns that integrate well with your kitchen's theme.

For the holidays and seasonal themes, crochet placemats with snowmen, bunnies, or patriotic themes for the Fourth of July. Fruit-shaped coasters make a great addition to your summer entertainment.

Choose fall colors, browns, golds, yellows, and reds, and replace them with winter colors, such as dark blue, green, red, silver, and white, to keep your decor fresh and in tune with the changing seasons.

Crochet Home Décor Ideas for the Bath


Give your bathroom a cozy feel with plush, absorbent crochet bathmats made with bulky or chunky yarn.

Choose a pattern with texture to increase absorbency and comfort underfoot. Use seasonal colors like pastels in spring or deep, rich hues for fall to keep your decor in tune with the time of year.

Washcloths and Face Scrubbies

Handmade washcloths and scrubbies offer a gentle touch to your skin and can be made in various colors to keep your bathroom looking coordinated. Consider whimsical shapes like Halloween ghosts or Christmas stars to add a festive touch. These items also make a great last-minute gift.

Shower Curtains and Accessory Holders

Craft a unique shower curtain with durable cotton yarn or create small appliques for an existing curtain. Consider an applique, such as starfish, seashells, whimsical fish shapes, or something else that can add to your current theme, and then sew them onto a cotton shower curtain.

Small baskets and holders are always a great addition to organizing toiletries and supplies, keeping everything tidy and within reach. Again, seasonal, themed curtains can change the entire look of your bathroom, like a beach theme in summer or cozy cabin motifs in winter.

Bedroom Décor Ideas

Blankets and Throws

Hanging Decorations

Create wall hangings, dream catchers, or canopy covers from crochet. If you love crochet intarsia, you can make a colorful tapestry perfect for adding to your walls.

These artistic pieces add a whimsical feel ideal for a restful bedroom environment. Make seasonal wall art with themes like spring flowers, summer suns, or winter snowflakes.

Table Runners

Elevate your dining experience with an elegant crochet table runner. A delicate lace pattern can add sophistication, while bolder designs can provide a more casual yet stylish touch. Seasonal table runners can switch up the look: think harvest time in the fall or poinsettias for Christmas.

Living Room

Afghans and Throws

Like in the bedroom, crochet Afghans and throws provide both functionality and beauty in the living room. Drape them over your sofa or favorite chair for a pop of color and warmth.

For seasonal flair, create Afghans in holiday palettes, such as oranges and browns for autumn or reds and greens for the winter holidays.

Basket Storage

Keep your living room organized with crochet baskets. They’re perfect for storing magazines, remote controls, or anything else cluttering a living space. Seasonal baskets can feature holiday colors or shapes, like candy cane stripes for Christmas.

Wall Art and Accent Pieces

Frame intricate crochet pieces as wall art or create accent pieces like garlands, coasters, and doilies. These can provide visual interest and reflect your style.

Even if you are a beginner, you can create an interesting piece of art simply by embroidering over a flat piece of single crochet fabric. Add your initials or a short inspirational phrase to put in your happy place.

Crochet is the perfect solution for accent pieces; whether they are whimsical amigurumi creatures or a crocheted flower arrangement, these pieces will always serve as a conversation starter and put a smile on your face.

Holiday-themed crochet garlands, such as stringing together crochet shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day or hearts for Valentine’s, can add a festive touch to any room.

Add that splash of color with a crocheted floor pillow pouf. These poufs are not only useful as footrests or extra seating but also add extra texture and color, especially to monochromatic color schemes.

Hints and Tips for Success

  • Start with what you already have and look for places in your home where the handmade touch would enhance the environment.
  • If you are a beginner, read the pattern thoroughly before beginning. Nothing is more frustrating than starting a project and then discovering that it is beyond your current skill level.
  • Experiment with different colors. There is no reason to use the designer’s colors if they are not you.
  • Feel free to change the design to meet your own needs. This website or elsewhere offers many different crochet stitch patterns.
  • Look for inspiration in fashion magazines and home decorating journals. If you see something you like, consider how you could recreate it with crochet.
