Table linen is a sure-fire way to create an effortlessly chic kitchen. Look beyond the standard hues and go for something with style and panache, such as the example above.

2. Magnetic spice holders

Everybody needs a little spice in his or her life! And now you can organise your spice with ease thanks to magnetic spice holders. Whether you stick them to a fridge or the wall, they are sure to look fabulously stylish and neat.

3. Perfect tableware

Almost everybody these days has a kitchen area for dining. Be it a breakfast bar, or simply a nearby table, kitchen dining is extremely popular. Jazz up your eating zone with some neat tableware that will ensure your space is stylish and sophisticated.

4. A tablet holder

With the huge range of apps available these days, a tablet can easily act as your cooking book and guide. For a high-tech kitchen make sure your iPad or tablet is protected and out of the way of any potential spills.

5. Extra storage shelf

Storage is a huge issue in most kitchens, and an extra storage shelf can go a long way in ensuring your cooking zone is clean and orderly. Invest in a timber unit such as this for all of your organisational needs.

6. Herb holders

Who doesn’t love fresh herbs in their food? The problem is usually that we tend to relegate our fresh herbs to the fridge where they often perish faster than normal. Instead buy fresh herb plants and keep them alive in stylish planters such as these!

7. A set of knives

No chef should be without a decent set of knives! Whether you cook regularly, or simply on occasion, ensuring you have top quality equipment is essential.

8. High-tech sinkware

As well as good equipment, you will want to make sure you have good quality fittings and fixtures as well. High-tech sinkware is a good place to start, as the basin is an oft-used fixture in the kitchen.
