You have just moved in your new house, rented or not, and you are unpacking stuff and rearranging everything. And then you go into the kitchen, which is perfectly furnished, clean and organized, but seem empty and boring. You have unpacked the plates and the utensils. You have put the pans and the pots into the cupboards. You have done everything you could, you believe, but this place lacks spirit and seems incomplete and repulsive. But what now? If you have bought this house, you have made an incredibly big investment and you don’t want to further spend much. And if you have rented it, you don’t really believe that investing in a house you will leave after some time is worthy. And this vicious circle brings you back to the start. You don’t know what to do and where to start from, but you surely know that your house and especially your kitchen needs an improvement and some care. And it deserves it. You deserve it. cause tomorrow morning when you wake up and make your cup of coffee, you need to feel cozy and comfy in this place. You need to feel at home.
They are super cheap and affordable and moreover they are super easy to find. Go to one of the many interior design shops and you will instantly fall in love with at least half of the mugs there. Buy the absolute favorites and make sure that you won’t be one of those boring people who have six absolutely identical cups or mugs. Be creative. Have one for every mood and every person in the house. Then when you go back home, choose the very best and arrange them nicely somewhere in the kitchen. They will be lovely as decoration and will be very useful to grab whenever you want a cup of coffee or tea.
What I am talking about are all those incredibly beautiful and unique plates, glasses, cups, bowls or just props that you see in the food photography. They are not just things to eat from. They are little pieces of art and make bring the spirit needed for your kitchen. Don’t follow the norm. Don’t buy these which everybody choses, but get those that you fall
in love with. And never end up having white or black ones only. They are boring and they won’t make you feel nice later.
The Creative Bit
Every kitchen needs something it can stand out with and even if you are living in a rented house, please, don’t deprive your kitchen of it. And what should it be? Whatever you like and you feel it fits. It can be an antique – the old clock of your grand-grand-parents’ house that stopped working ages ago, but you just got fixed; that cookie book that you find at a flea market in Germany that brings the sensation of something old and something valuable. Keep it.
