One of the most viewed entries on my blog is the one where I tackle where to buy purple kitchen accessories. So, it was only a matter of time before someone asked me to track down something similar – this time, Louise wants to know where she can get a green bread bin.
Easy, I thought. But actually, despite it being one of 2012’s ‘in’ colours, there aren’t that many good-looking bits of green kitchen kit available.
There are a couple of green gems though. I really like the old skool style of the decently-priced Simplicity Bread Bin, £22, from www.woolworths.co.uk, above (it’s also available in purple, red, black, silver and turquoise if you’re interested).
I also like the retro-look 1950s-inspired lime green metal bread bin by Zeal, below, which costs £30 from www.morcohome.com or £32.99 from www.4yourkitchen.co.uk (it also comes in aqua, black, fuchsia pink and red).
And for practicality, the acrylic Omada green bread bin, £35 from www.tesco.com, below, is dishwasher-safe and the beech wood lid doubles up as a bread chopping board; as does the lid of Dunelm Mill’s Modern Country Leaf Collection bread bin, currently on sale for £18.39 (www.dunelm-mill.co.uk)
Finally, if you’re on a tight budget, Argos (www.argos.co.uk) are selling their Colour Match Pittsburgh 5-piece storage set in apple green – which includes a bread bin, biscuit tin and sugar/tea/coffee caddies for just £16.49 at the moment (usual price £24.99). Bargain!
