With months of long nights ahead of us, we’re all spending more time inside our homes, and the kitchen is truly at the heart.
The kitchen is where all the magic happens, from the kettle boiling for a cuppa, to a hearty meal in the oven, to the Christmas leftovers in the fridge. A kitchen invites friends and family to gather around and spend quality time together in the colder months.
Now is the time to bring cosiness and warmth into the kitchen. Wintery scents can go a long way to create a cosy atmosphere; pine, cinnamon, ginger and citrus all work well. Introducing darker colours into the space can be an effective way to turn up the warmth at minimal cost. Consider switching out lighter coloured tea towels and storage jars for a deep blue or forest green. Although it may seem unconventional, adding a rug to the kitchen can keep cold feet warm through the winter. Our tip is to choose an easily washable rug to manage any possible spills.
Here are some of the unique and cosy kitchens from houses that we had recently on the market:
