The kitchen is the heart of many homes, and offers a central meeting point for families and friends to bond over great food and shared stories. It goes without saying that we want to keep this space as vibrant and functional as possible and one of the best ways to do this is by updating your appliances.
With this in mind here is a look at some of the best ways you can transform your kitchen into a truly unique and exciting room.
Go back in time
Today kitchen design is putting more and more of an emphasis on modern, sleek and cutting edge looks. So why not create a space with individual flair and opt for a retro look? The 1950s were a golden age for domestic living and fun 50s inspired colours and appliances have come back into fashion with a vengeance.
You can introduce stunning retro design with modern functionality, with appliances like this unique fridge freezer. If you’re looking for a unique cooker, the Kitchener 90 is another piece of history with a modern touch. Other retro tweaks include pastel colour schemes and wallpaper, tiled feature walls and 1950’s inspired cabinet and drawer handles.
Appliances with a smile
These days there’s an appliance for pretty much everything you could imagine, as well as some creations that are geared less towards functionality and more towards fun. Some of the best examples are the new Pop Art Toasters, which leave a pattern of your choice on your toast in the morning.
Some of the other amazing creations that are sure to create a talking point in any kitchen are the Keyboard style Waffle Maker, the transparent toasted and the shark-shaped egg poachers.
ON-OFF Mugs are another great accessory, that feature the message OFF when empty and then transform into the message ON to indicate when hot water in inside.
If you want to create a kitchen with a distinctive edge, going eco-friendly is a worthwhile option. This unique washer dryer is one of the many new appliances that can help to reduce your carbon footprint and improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Make recycling as simple as possible with clearly labelled cartons for each type of waste and update your sponges and dishcloths to be eco-friendly with no dyes and synthetic disinfectants. Instead of throwing away waste like coffee grounds, tea bags and egg shells, teach your family about the benefits of composting – also a great way to get the garden looking beautiful.
