All the inspiration you need for kitchen styling accessories
Glass storage jars and labels
Glass storage jars not only keep your kitchen organised and orderly, but they can look great on your shelves too. You can store anything you like in your glass jars, but popular items include cereals, rice and pasta, and dried grains and pulses. You can choose to leave the contents on display or get creative with pretty or colourful labels to add to your cards too.
If you want to add some immediate sophistication and class to your kitchen space, a wine rack will do the job for you instantly. Wine racks not only look great but will help store your wine correctly too. So if you are partial to the odd glass, a wine rack can be an excellent investment.
A mug tree is a fun and stylish way to store your mugs, free up cupboard space, and keep your mugs handy whenever you need a bit of a caffeine hit. Of course, it helps if the cups on display look great too, so why not invest in some new mugs to make this look work for you?
If the rest of your kitchen is looking spick and span, a messy sink can really take away from the overall ambiance. A sink-tidy is a cheap and easy way to store washing-up liquid, brushes, and sponges, and it will keep your surfaces clean and decluttered.
If you love leafing through recipes and musing over what your next culinary masterpiece will be, you’ll no doubt have a stack of recipe books piled high in your kitchen. Why not show them off and keep them well looked after with a stylish cookbook stand? This means your favourite recipes are to hand whenever you want to create a new delicious dish!
We all know how important it is to get your five-a-day, so hopefully, your kitchen is always brimming with fruit and vegetables. Displaying your fruit properly can be a great way to add some natural colour to the kitchen. Wire fruit baskets look cool and contemporary, whilst wooden bowls can create a more rustic, authentic look. Pick different varieties of fruits such as bananas, oranges, apples, grapes, and strawberries to inject colour and freshness into the room.
A bunch of freshly cut flowers goes a long way if you want to add style and class to your kitchen space. The great thing about fresh flowers is you can change them depending on your mood. Bright, bold sunflowers inject fun and colour, roses as romance and sophistication, and tulips are bright and fresh. Switch them up depending on your mood or the occasion, and always make sure you have an attractive vase to display them in.
Floating shelves can look great in the kitchen and add a modern touch. Floating shelves can be used to display cookbooks, keep storage jars, or add nature by investing in trailing houseplants to hang down.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and so bringing some family photos into the space will make it seem warm and welcoming. You can choose more traditional frames to display on shelves, work surfaces, or window sills. Or perhaps you might go for something more sleek and modern, such as a box photo frame for that contemporary 3D look? Either way, why not gather together some of your favourite family photos and fond memories and get these framed and on display to add some life and warmth to the space?
