6 finishing touches that make a kitchen magazine-worthy

6 finishing touches that make a kitchen magazine-worthy

Finishing touches bring personality to a space; they are the small styling features that add colour, texture, and warmth, and turn a house into a home. Finishing touches are especially important in functional spaces like the kitchen where we often value practicality over style.

And where better to see finishing touches at work than on a House Beautiful magazine shoot, where our stylists put their expertise to work on a fabulous kitchen extension in Hampshire. The House Beautiful Islington Kitchen from Homebase in a deep gunmetal grey with white Corian worktops and Quick-Step Mountain Oak Wood Flooring at Carpetright, provided a sleek and practical base from which to build.

By introducing plenty of fresh flowers, herbs and plants, displaying cookbooks, and arranging colourful kitchenware and table linen, this stylish kitchen was transformed into a bright and welcoming space fit for cooking, entertaining, and relaxing.

To see the full kitchen makeover, pick up the November issue of House Beautiful, on sale now.
