Hello and welcome to my post about how to make your kitchen look luxe! I don’t think I have a super luxe kitchen by any stretch, but there are certain things I do which I think make my kitchen feel a little bit more luxurious. Essentially the key to making your kitchen look luxe is decanting (for want of a better word)… not leaving stuff in their ordinary packaging, but taking it out and putting it in something nicer… Often this preserves the life of your products too, but come back next week to find out about how to make your food last longer…

I take almost everything out of its packaging! Here are some ways I have made my things look a bit more luxe by decanting… These are all very inexpensive items to add to your kitchen!
Taking the eggs out of their box and putting them in a clear container, similar here*
Putting squash in glass bottles, these are the Kilner Beehive Water & Cordial Clip Top Bottles*
Storing dried goods in glass jars, similar here*
Undoubtably some kitchen stuff is plastic and it can be great, but I think for accents avoiding plastic makes things look a lot better. Things such as a pyrex measuring jug or the glass jars and bottles above instead of plastic. In the snap above I have a wooden cutlery holder rather than a plastic one as a draw divider in my cutlery draw. Just makes things feel a bit more luxe! This divider my granny actually bought for me from TKMAXX which is a great place to find inexpensive luxe items, similar wooden draw divider here*.
I love a tray, I have a huge one on my sitting room coffee table and somehow putting all the rubbish on there rather than the table looks somehow more put together? In the kitchen I have a few, one for the squash bottles (shown earlier), one for my soap and moisturiser (above) and I have one near the hob which has my ‘everyday stuff’ like oil, loose salt etc… on it. Products- tray above is Sophie Allport terriers, tray for bottles is Wrendale Designs*, tray near hob is Sophie Allport bees.
Now this one is a bit contravertial for me as I’m not actually that good at keeping house plants alive… Touch wood this orchid has been around for 2 years now! Orchids are great actually- they’re tropical so they like to have some sunlight but they don’t actually need much watering! You can pick up orchids in most places, similar here*.
