The kitchen is, by its very nature, the true hub of the home. It is the place where residents go to make meals everyday, perhaps to carry out other household tasks, and also to take stock of the day's duties. This is the case for all kinds of households, so it stands to reason, that it should be as comfortable and as welcoming as possible.
Bringing out a homely warmth in the kitchen is a good aim to have when thinking about possible renovations to home interiors. Here at Homecolours we know that as well as being good looking, a kitchen has to also be practical and workable. The following are some tips on how best to make stylish and pragmatic choices in your kitchen updates.
Keeping things safe and secure in the kitchen is an essential in any busy kitchen. Having storage items that also act for necessary culinary tasks are a good method of keeping things in order.
A package such as the Mepal - Cirqula Serving Bowl Set of 4 Deep is an ideal addition to the kitchen. Ideal for keeping food stored and under-wraps until it needs to be used, the bowls are leak-proof making them ideal for soup, fruit and meals containing liquid elements. The bowls can go into the freezer and are also suitable for the microwave.
A nice hot drink is part of the many things that a kitchen can offer. The addition of a stylish new teapot or cafetiere is a great way to bring a new- and useful - look to the room.
The above Le Teapot 2 Cup Teapot by La Cafetière is a beautiful statement to make on any kitchen surface. With a superb French styling and design the teapot is a modern take on the best way to make the perfect cup of tea. Produced with a heat-resistant glass bowl and an enamel look frame, the tea pot is available in a striking black finish. It can also be use for making cold drinks, and is capable of producing enough for 2 cups.
A kettle is another vital part of the kitchen, especially in the process of creating a hot drink. Bold and stylish looks in the kettle are able to bring a eye-catching look to the interior.
The above minimalist style Emma Electric Kettle from Stelton makes a lovely new addition to the room. Cordless, and produced in lacquered stainless steel with a Beechwood carved handle, the kettle features a dry boil safety switch and is easy to clean with a removable limescale filter.
