1. Funky furniture

Improving the look of your kitchen doesn’t need to cost the earth. It is very easy to get brightly coloured bar stools, clever folding tables and vintage looking chairs for very little money. Somewhere like IKEA has a huge selection of cheap, funky and colourful furniture.

However, if you are looking for something more local, vintage or perhaps upscaled then Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire has plenty choice. Nina’s Apartment in Aberdeenshire has a wide choice of British and Scandinavian furniture that is either vintage, upscaled or both!


2. Show Off what You Got

A kitchen in a property to rent in Aberdeen is usually very small and there is not very much space for storage. This provides the perfect opportunity to show off some of your more stylish kitchen wares. If you are looking for vintage or unique kitchen wares then Peapod in Aberdeen have a wide selection of sourced vintage furniture, kitchen wares/utensils, clothes and more.

Using a vase or pint glass could be the perfect storage solution for your cutlery, cooking utensils or other kitchen items. If there is little cupboard space, stacking plates, bowls and mugs in a specific way could look great on a kitchen work top.

3. Create a Fridge Canvas

The fridge door is something that has been a magnetic canvas for decades and as long as there is no danger of causing permanent marks or damage then decorating it is an easy way to brighten up the kitchen in your property to rent in Aberdeen.

Using a magnetic chalk board is a great way to decorate your fridge. It is a perfect way to either write your shopping list or leave a nice drawing or message for whomever you may live with.


4. Vertical Limit

In a property to rent in Aberdeen it may be a struggle to find a kitchen with a large amount of counter top space, however many of these properties have high ceilings.

Looking up to the ceilings and the wall space may provide a solution to a cramped kitchen space. It is best to speak to your landlord but you may be able to hang pots and pans from the ceiling on a rail or you may be able to use hooks on the wall to achieve the same goal.

5. Plant Power

Bringing the outdoors indoors is a goal many have with their property to rent in Aberdeen and this doesn’t change with the kitchen. Having plants produce oxygen and produce a calming atmosphere.

If you are green fingered and a keen cook, then growing your own herbs in your kitchen in your property to rent in Aberdeen is a great way to bring some nature into your kitchen and on top of that your food will taste so much better with fresh, home grown herbs!
