Oxford Dictionary Definition…

  • A thing which can be added to something else in order to make it more useful/ versatile/attractive
  • A small article/item of clothing, carried or worn to complement a garment or outfit e.g. hat, bag, shoes

Ah my favourite things, accessories. Not one single shopping trip ends without purchasing some form of accessory, and much pleasure is gained each time I manage to find the perfect bag, bracelet or earrings to complement an outfit. I am pretty renowned for my accessory purchases and my partner just cannot understand why I need yet another bag or pair of shoes (wardrobe full of them!) as far as I am concerned, the word need and shoes or bags have no business being together in a sentence in the first place!

Andrea's Accessories

Just a small selection of my accessories!

Now with this in mind, I pretty much have the perfect job because not a day goes by without me talking about accessories. In this instance I am talking Kitchen accessories, but it holds the same pleasure for me, having an outfit with perfect accessories is the best way to dress. A well dressed kitchen will have the perfect accessories. Accessorising the home is big business these days, and there are some beautifully designed accessories available. We are adding more art and crafts to our rooms for aesthetic pleasure.

Looking at the first definition again “a thing that can be added to something else in order to make it more useful/versatile/attractive”

Now lets look at kitchen accessories…

The kitchen is pretty much heart of the home these days and as such, we are spending more time there, usually doing something useful cooking, cleaning, homework, entertaining friends. We want the kitchen to look attractive, hence ranges of coloured appliances such as kettles, toasters and even colour coordinated waste bins. What we do not always consider, is accessories that we use for their function and practicality.
