Bringing Spring into the Kitchen3 min read

With most recent times of us staying in, staying in is the new going out. Days filled with lots of sunshine are on the horizon, so transition your home in time for the fresh new season known as Spring. There are many different elements that you can add to your hub of the home… introduce Spring colours into the kitchen, make a tablescape full of spring foliage and blossom and create tasty recipes with the family all on top of that granite or quartz worktop.

It will soon be the Easter holidays and there’s still plenty of activities to do with the children, even if we are unable to get out and about with most things closed. Spring is where the days become longer and the weather gets warmer due to the Earth tilting relative to its orbital plane around the sun. Plants grow, flowers bloom and many animals breed making it one of the most wonderful times of the year.

Below we look at how to create a Spring style in your kitchen design to brighten up your life.

Inject Spring colours and styling

When injecting Spring colours into the kitchen it wakes up the interiors and gives us that little bit of colour we love and deserve. A classic blue is a normal colour to go, working well within a white kitchen and patterned elements. Blue is such a versatile colour it almost goes with any hues, making it the ideal option this Spring. Use blue to keep it coastal, or create a Scandi style with darker tones and raw wood.

A pink hue is still a popular option for the kitchen as it brings warmth and sophistication to any interior. A subtle shade of pink also combines perfectly with beige/taupe tones and timeless whites.

Add to the table a vase of delightful Spring flowers and a bit of green to add pops of colour to the space and a refreshing interior. Bringing outdoor elements into the kitchen not only brightens up the room but they purify the air making it a lot healthier for you and your family. Even find an empty corner to add hanging plants or a large pot. Flowers and plants in the home can make a huge difference to your mood leaving you calm and collected.

Create a Spring tablescape

Decorate the table and surrounding areas with a beautiful tablescape of Spring loveliness. To create a simple and elegant table, add an arrangement of glass vases down the centre of the table with cuttings of favourite foliage and blossom. Mix and match your tableware with bowls and plates in different colours, styles and sizes. Get the children to paint an egg and add bottles of infused water with lemons and limes with bowls of seasonal rainbow salads.
