How to Decorate Your Nerdy Kitchen

How to Decorate Your Nerdy Kitchen

You did it. You almost thought it wasn’t possible, but you made it all the way to adulthood, moved out of your parents' place and now you have a kitchen of your own. You cook your own dinners these days, you drink out of your own coffee mugs, and gosh darn it, you make your own toast in the morning! Since you can do whatever you want with your kitchen, why not decorate it in true nerd fashion with some awesome geek swag? Perhaps you could adorn your countertop with a Star Wars toaster, or maybe a nice Marvel pint glass to sip your beer from. We’ve picked out some of the best drinkware, kitchen gadgets, and other food prep helpers that are 100% nerdy and 100% a necessity for any nerd with a kitchen to decorate.

First thing’s first, right? Adults with kitchens drink tea. Tea is the sophisticated potable that gives a small boost of energy in the morning, but that doesn’t mean you should do it in the normal, old boring ways. You can do it in glorious nerd style by choosing a fun tea infuser. If you really want to take it to the next level, then you should inject a little Star Wars into your tea experience with one of our R2-D2 teapots. Is there anything that little astromech can’t do?

Gamer Coffee Mugs

Okay, okay. So maybe tea isn’t for everyone. Not everyone enjoys the subtle taste of tea. Some need the intense experience of coffee! That’s right, coffee, the liquid gold often referred to as the elixir of life, is the other option for caffeine-seeking adults. If you plan on drinking coffee, then you’re going to need a mug. The world is full of so many mugs, it can be a pretty daunting decision for an intrepid coffee drinker. Do you go with the "#1 Dad" mug or the "I Heart New York" mug? The answer is neither! Get a gamer mug. These gamer mugs combine your love of video games with your need for daily caffeine intake. You won’t regret starting your day pouring a high dosage of brew into your Sonic the Hedgehog mug.

Next up is beer. Yes, you read right! We’re talking about another potable liquid. After all, most of adult life is about imbibing liquids that make us feel ways about things. In the morning you drink coffee or tea to help you feel energized for the long day ahead of you. Once work is over, there’s nothing like a cold beer to take the edge off. These magnificent glasses are covered with all your favorite characters from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Simpsons, and Marvel superheroes, so you can cling to your distant childhood as you embrace your continuing adulthood! Few pieces of drinkware can claim such a benevolent task, so you’d better have a set hanging around in your kitchen cupboard.

Imbibing so many liquids can be hazardous to your nice, adult furniture. As such, you’re going to need some method of protecting that coffee table or that nice dining room table. Nothing does that better than a coaster. You could settle for those plain pieces of cork that your grandpa used back when people had to walk uphill 15 miles in the snow for pretty much everything. But why? These coasters have Star Wars characters. They have Game of Thrones’ crests on them. They have the freakin’ Starship Enterprise on them. There’s no going back to boring cork coasters once you’ve seen them.

You can have one or two, then place the rest inside a cookie jar for consumption at a later date. There’s truly one for everyone, whether you’re a hardcore anime fan and need to infuse your treats with the Super Saiyan action of Dragon Ball Z, or you want to pretend that your cookies are capable of time travel with a Doctor Who jar. Here’s a selection of some of our nerdiest cookie jars to adorn your kitchen with. (That’s right, that sentence just ended with a preposition because we’re rebels like that.)
