How to Get the Great British Bake Off Style in Your Kitchen!

The Great British Bake Off may be over for another year, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop daydreaming about Victoria sponge cakes and Paul Hollywood’s dazzling blue eyes, right? To tide you over until the next season is back on the telly, you could recreate the wonderfully vintage GBBO vibe in your own cooking space. To help you turn your kitchen into something even Mary Berry would be proud of, keep reading!

Go for Solid Wood Worktops
While you may love watching the Bake Off hopefuls sweat in sheer panic as they try their best to muster up a beautiful baked creation, it’s what they’re standing behind that you need to take note of. Solid wood worktops are a key element of the GBBO aesthetic, so to really nail this trend in your own home, you could swap your surfaces for something similar. If you plan to bake up a storm in your newly styled kitchen, it pays to go for high-quality, strong materials from a reliable supplier. For example, the solid oak kitchen worktops from Worktop Express have the same warm tones as the GBBO surfaces and the natural integrity of the wood gives them impressive durability.

Opt for Retro-Inspired Appliances
To really capture the essence of the Bake Off in your cooking space, ditching sleek, modern gizmos and gadgets in favour of super cute, retro-inspired appliances is an absolute must. The famous kitchen is renowned for its vintage-looking electricals, giving the area an extra dusting of sweetness and charm.

If you’re a diehard fan, why settle for anything less than the exact appliances they use on the show? For all your whisking, creaming and whipping needs, you could follow in the contestants’ footsteps and treat yourself to a state-of-the-art KitchenAid mixer. If you’re keen to go all out in true GBBO style, you could even swap your fridge for an adorable 1950s-inspired Smeg model.

Stick with a Pastel Colour Palette
When you tune in to watch the Great British Bake Off, it’s clear to see that it’s all about the pretty pastels. From dusky pinks, to mint greens, to baby blues, the GBBO tent is filled with light, fresh shades. There are a number of easy ways you can incorporate a similar colour palette into your own cooking space. For example, you could give your kitchen walls a lick of paint in a soft hue, or you could dress your countertops with perfectly placed, pastel-coloured accessories.

Don’t Forget the Finishing Touches
The Bake Off tent wouldn’t be complete if it wasn’t for the finishing touches. From strings of cute bunting to strategically positioned cake stands, GBBO has the fine details down to a tee. To complete your kitchen, why not place a vase of beautiful flowers on your window ledge or organise a display of cute Mason style jars on an open shelf?

Quintessentially British and oh-so charming, there’s no reason why you can’t get the Great British Bake Off style in your own kitchen.
