The kitchen is often hailed as the heart of any home. However, it’s also one of the most overlooked rooms in the house when it comes to décor: often, once worktops are installed and white-goods purchased, we reserve our creative flair for the living- and bed-rooms instead.
If you want to ensure your kitchen is both functional and beautiful, look no further than The Hut for all your decorative needs. From minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired serve-ware and kitchen accessories to on-trend copper accents, or rustic, country-kitchen utensils, we’ve got all you could need to transform your kitchen from practical to perfect.
The Scandinavian way of life – known as hygge – has taken off recently, becoming one of them most popular trends of the year for homeware. It can be tricky to keep your kitchen minimal, as it’s arguably one of the busiest areas of the home; however, with some stunningly-designed pieces from Broste Copenhagen and Menu, you’ll be channeling your inner Scandi in no time.
Whether you love to throw lavish dinner parties or simply enjoy the finer things, create an opulent space to cook and eat with some copper and slate kitchenware. Choose dark, rich colour palettes for a real sense of luxury, and play with different textures of wood, metal and ceramics to create a tapestry of sophistication: take a look at Just Slate for inspiration.
Warm and inviting, give your kitchen a rustic, rural feel – regardless of whether you’re based in the city or the countryside. Choose heavy, ceramic kitchenware, with solid handles and weighty lids – we like Le Creuset for this – and contrast this with wooden boards and classic white crockery.
