Kitchen decorative trash cans may be made of plastic, a solid metal or a painted metal surface with metal bands.

Great article, AJ! I refurbished my apartment recently and one of the things that I did was replacing my boring trash bin with a new one bought from IKEA. Amazing how an item that costs very little adds loads of style to my workspace!

Thanks Brian! It really is incredible how small changes can make a big difference, and trash bins are no exception.

Great article. Decorative cans in the kitchen especially makes a snazzy addition instead of a cringing embarrassment like the old white plastic ones with the swinging lid.
Mine , a shiny red cylinder trimmed in stainless steel, is so pretty that I am not embarrased to have it tucked neatly in a corner. Very pricey, but definitely worth it!So lovely that I bought another matching one in a smaller size for being handy while I am cooking. I just put my foot on it's shiny pedal and its open/shut. Decorative is the way to go!
