Today we are looking at one of the most used areas of a home, the kitchen. We would all love to have our dream kitchen but many people cannot afford it. However many of us don’t realise the accessories are often the key to creating a welcoming kitchen in your home. By simply making small changes to your accessories you can create a completely different look.
If you want to get in the Jubilee spirit there are a host of patriotic kitchen accessories now available. These items will add colour and interest to your kitchen and given the low price you can easily replace them later in the year. These colourful tea towels from Victoria Eggs will add some colour into your kitchen and are reasonably priced at £12.50.
Every kitchen needs good mugs and there are so many great choices available. My current favourites are the new London Mugs collection from Mini Moderns. There are 6 mugs in the range featuring iconic sights such a Big Ben, Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral. Packaged in individual boxes, they would also make a great house warming gift.
Updating your glassware is another easy task that will bring new life into your kitchen. Quirky glasses add a fun touch to any kitchen and these Rose & Grey glasses from mydeco would look great on any dining table. Sold as a set of three there is also a matching water bottle available.
No kitchen is complete without a good apron for those days when you want to create your own culinary masterpieces. To inject some colour for the summer Herdy have a wonderfully colourful range of aprons available through mydeco. Featuring the signature sheep logo of Herdy these aprons are available in yellow, pink, orange, purple, turquoise and grey.
As you can see it is very easy, and also fairly cheap, to update a few of your kitchen accessories to give the room a completely new look. Whether you go quirky, modern, colourful or classic there is now a huge selection of accessories available for your kitchen. What would you like to change in yours?
