Finishing Touches to Your Dream Kitchen


A neutral kitchen is an excellent investment. At Hollins Homes we have a wonderful range and choice of kitchens. If you wish to create your own style and want a kitchen bursting with personality, use colour or decorative accessories. This is by far the most cost effective way and therefore means you may chop and change your look much more frequently if you so desire.

A brand new home and a new start is an excellent time to refresh smaller kitchen items such as; kettles, toasters, microwaves, storage jars, bread bins, tea towels, oven gloves, place mats and coasters. Many high street stores and outlets online, have often done the thinking and styling for you, supplying full ranges of matching accessories and appliances. 

Alternatively, you can make and discover a more individual look, by curating complimentary pieces together, that you have hand picked. Styles that may appeal are:

Scandi Chic -  Beautiful natural materials, mostly in shades of white or pastel tones. Striking clean designs of superb quality.

Country Cottage - A cosy look, a rustic style but with a homely traditional feel. Wallpaper in floral patterns, gingham tablecloths and blinds. Plants and herbs in zinc or stone planters.

Industrial - Dark colours, blue, grey and black. Steel, copper and metallic touches, geometric and mathematical patterns. 

Botanical - Patterns and colours taken from nature. Greenery, animal inspired accessories. Large dramatic leafy prints, flora and fauna inspired wallpapers and fabrics.

Mid century Modern - Think bold graphic prints displayed against plain white and sleek lines. Keep large accessories stainless steel and then add colour, geometric pattern and warmth with real wood, art, and the smaller accessories.

The important thing to remember is to have fun and take pleasure in selecting items for your new home.
