Kitchen in need of a little refresh? These accessories under €50 are just the trick

Kitchen in need of a little refresh? These accessories under €50 are just the trick

Zara Home

Whether you’d love a bright bowl to liven up salads or a jar to keep all your most-used utensils to hand, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite fresh finds.

We’ve been having all our meals at home for pretty much a year now, so it’s no wonder that some of our most-used kitchen items are not looking their best. As well as this, you start to realise where the gaps in your kitchen supplies are pretty fast (I need another mixing bowl, and a little chopping board for when you just need to cut one thing). 

Updating your kitchen accessories is also a great way to change things up in your home, as they’re items that we use all the time. We’ve found some great ones, all under €50.

Drink up

Whether it’s something to make your tea break feel a little bit fancy, or just a bargain with yourself that you really will drink more water during the day, a vessel that will look gorgeous at the centre of your table is a great place to start.

Storage

You may disagree, but I think pretty pots, tins and jars are a key part of any good kitchen. These are the essential items that help everything else to function seamlessly in a kitchen, so I want them to look just as good as everything else in it. 

Plates and bowls

Some of the most-used items in our kitchens, I don’t think you can ever have enough different kinds of plates and bowls. A deep bowl is a totally different beast than a wide, shallow one, and I want both side plates and lunch plates. If your collection is missing something, here are some options to inspire you.
