Home Update: Rental Kitchen

So, we have finally moved into our new house (yay!) and we’ve started decorating. The first room we tackled was the kitchen. It was originally painted green and looked a bit rough and ready, so we started by painting everything white.

Firstly, I picked up these amber glass jars from B&M, (as well as most of the plants!) and just added a label. It just means that we can avoid plastic!

The rug is from Very.co.uk and is actually in the sale at the moment, so if you’re in the market for a new rug – now’s not a bad time to pick one up.

We also bought a radiator cover from Facebook Marketplace and covered up the original radiator and gave ourselves a bit more shelving space.


  1. Keep plants, flowers, and produce displayed where their colors shine through. Unless you’re blessed with a large kitchen window, rental kitchens can feel sterile and lifeless, with their expanses of cabinetry and countertops. Even a small bud vase, like the one seen in Courtney and Michael’s home here, will add some vim and vigor. By making sure that there’s always something living on display, your kitchen will never feel too dead.
