Accessories In The Kitchen: How To Do It Right

The kitchen is the heart of any home, which is why it’s the pride and joy for many. Making a kitchen unique isn’t always in the expensive finishes chosen when it was first installed. Often, it’s choosing the right accessories and making sure they’re placed well. At House of Mangar, we do more than just custom furniture and interior design, we have a range of curated decorative pieces that have been carefully sourced from across the globe. It’s why we know a thing or two about adding a little something extra to any space in your house, especially the kitchen. 

Here’s how to accessorise one of the most important places of all… 

Play with colour 

Many of us have chosen to play it safe with regards to our cabinetry, splashbacks and even countertops. For those who have kept things fairly neutral, accessories are a wonderful way to add interest and elevate your kitchen’s aesthetic. Display some copper saucepans or utensils if you have hanging space or perhaps some brighter cookbooks. If you’re looking to invest in a new kettle or toaster, why not consider one with a pop of colour? Greenery is also a huge trend that’s perfect for a kitchen, so make sure you add a plant or two.

For those looking to do a bit of remodelling, an interesting tile makes for a stunning splashback. If you’re on more of a budget, why not find a gorgeous ceramic bowl and fill it with lemons or limes? This is perfect for a kitchen island and brings in a fresh appeal. We also love striking pendant lights above an island or the middle of the room. Rugs can also make a kitchen more stylish so don’t underestimate the impact of one in front of your oven.

If you’re one for playful finishing touches, things like dish towels, ceramics or even art are ideal for completing your kitchen. Sometimes, all you need is an eye-catching herb planter, a great vase, some trendy mugs or a unique utensil holder to pull it all together.

A balance of new and old really does do the trick. Why not go through your storage items to see what you have to display? From vintage clocks to cake stands and serving spoons, you’d be amazed at how well these accessorise your space.
