  1. De-clutter your kitchen space

If you’re looking to brighten and freshen up your kitchen space, you’ll benefit from doing a good tidy up. Over time, condiments and pots and pans find themselves on worktops as your cupboard space begins to overflow. Taking time out to clear your cupboards and sort out your storage will do you the world of good.

  1. Add a lick of paint to your kitchen

If you’ve got the time, it’s also worth refreshing your kitchen walls with a lick of paint. Opt for summer colours like duck egg blue, lemon, or bright white. Bright, clean colours like this also help to open up a space, making your kitchen feel spacious and taller.

  1. Style your kitchen with seasonal accessories

You can transform your kitchen in no time with a selection of bright, summer accessories. Add a pop of colour with bright oven gloves, new table placemats and colourful tea towels. Flowers make a great addition to the kitchen space too. If it’s time for an appliance update, you could also invest in a coloured kettle and toaster and perhaps some bright pots and pans to match.

  1. Invest in some summer-ready appliances

When we think of summer we tend to think al fresco dining, gatherings with friends and fresh fare. Luckily, there are a number of great kitchen appliances that make summer catering that little bit easier.

Neff’s product line features a great range of summer-ready products like its wine cooler. Neff dishwashers are also ideal for that post-party clean-up. And for those summer canapés, why not make the most of Neff’s warming drawers to keep all your finger food at its optimum temperature.

  1. Keep things fresh and tasty with homegrown herbs

Homegrown herbs in pretty pots are great for adding a touch of summer style to your kitchen. Choose pots to complement the style and theme of your kitchen – for example, copper pots for an industrial style space and shabby-chic iron pots for your cottage-style kitchen.

What’s more, you’ll be able to use all your homegrown herbs in your cooking too. Throw some basil into your summer pasta, mint into your seasonal salads, and pop some thyme on your homemade pizzas.
