The start of a new season is the perfect time for people to redecorate and many will take to giving their home a refresh as Spring begins to flourish. Whether it’s completely stripping their home back and repainting or it’s just mixing up their colour scheme and adding in some new accessories, starting the new year in a home they love is essential.
As a shop owner, you will find that lots of people will be searching around for new bits and bobs to add to their home at the beginning of the year and it’s a good idea to have some homeware accessories readily in store for them. If you’re looking for some go-to items that people are guaranteed to love, then we would definitely recommend taking a look at our selection of wooden plaques. Here at VKF of Worcester, we’ve put together our top 5 wooden plaques that we believe just about every home needs.
For Someone Who Loves Food
This is probably the most popular, yet simplistic type of wooden wall art and it’ll work perfectly in any kitchen. There’s such a wide variety of wooden plaques on the market with numerous sayings related to our favourite foods and what you can expect to find in the kitchen it is hung in. They are a great way to brighten up a room, bring a smile to your guests faces and act as a brilliant interior accessory.
One of our personal favourite food-related plaques is the “Obsessive Cheese Disorder” sign and it is guaranteed to go down well with your cheese obsessed customers.
For Someone Who Enjoys a Tipple
A wooden plaque that relates to someones favourite alcohol is always a winner! They make brilliant gifts and work anywhere in the home. Whether you prefer gin, wine, prosecco or beer you will find a huge range on the market. There are also some brilliant large wooden wall art pieces with quotes about coffee too.
When it comes to plaques relating to alcohol, our favourite is the "No Gin, Not Coming In" plaque, which will work perfectly in a kitchen, hallway or just about any room. Gin is the drink of the year, so you won’t have to worry about not being able to sell these.
For Someone Who is Obsessed with Animals
There’s no denying that as a nation, Brits love animals and many people have a weakness when it comes to purchasing home
accessories related to their pets or another cute animal that they love. For this reason, if you’re going to stock your shop with any type of wall art and plaques, it is essential to have something relating to animals on your shelves.
Our favourite animal-related plaque has to be the "Dogs Welcome, Humans Tolerated"sign. You can trust that this will be a hit with any dog lover that visits your store and is sure to garner a chuckle or two.
For Someone Who Laughs at Bad Jokes
Everyone knows someone that loves a bad joke and thankfully, there are lots of plaques that have either puns or funny sayings on them. Again, these work well in numerous rooms of the house and are the sort of thin
g that may remind you of someone in particular, so you can’t resist purchasing them, particularly as a special gift.
One of the funny plaques we know goes down well in stores is the "Caution: Free Range Children" sign. Any comical wall art relating to kids is guaranteed to be a good seller, especially for those parents amongst us.
For Someone Who is Always Positive
If you’re ever in doubt of what people will want to purchase, a wooden plaque with a positive, loving saying is always a safe option. The majority of people will have some form of love or family related decor in their home and it is one of the easiest genres of wooden plaques to sell. Thankfully, there are many different designs you can choose from too.
When it comes to sweet plaques, our favourite has to be the "All You Need Is Love" heart-shaped wooden plaque. This versatile sign is the perfect impulse buy and the shape of the sign is certain to draw attention on any wall.

There are so many different types of plaques that you can invest in, all of which will be a great addition to your store.
