How to spice up your kitchen?

Creative cooking in a boring kitchen? No way! A few simple tricks can spice up your kitchen, taking it from bland to beautiful. Discover how to accessorize your cooking space:

Bright colours

The easiest way to uplift your kitchen area, is to infuse the space with bright pops of colour. They will make you happy in an instant, even before that first coffee of the day. A pastel pink kitchen, rainbow-coloured storage items or vibrant yellow chairs: be bold and be happy!

Looks & function

You can have the best of both worlds: invest in appliances that work well but look good too. An eye-catching toaster, high-quality oven mitts, chopping boards that could almost be a piece of art: something that is easy on the eye will spark more joy, and you can leave it on the counter instead of hiding things out of sight.

Add a bit of personality to your kitchen. An easy way to make a room totally you, is by adding pictures, art or drawings. But you can go a bit further too: what about custom cabinet fronts, an eye-catching backsplash or a made-to-measure kitchen island?

Most importantly: don’t forget to have fun! The kitchen can easily become a cluttered, hectic room with things you can’t control - groceries waiting to be unpacked, empty lunch boxes, endless dishes in the sink - so make sure that what you DO have under control, is worth your while. Pick items that make you feel good and that you enjoy using and looking at. Life’s too short to be boring!
