Moving house is super exciting! The start of a new chapter in a new home, looking forward to making new memories and traditions is one of the best feelings in the world.

Although, remembering what you need to buy for your new home, particularly for the kitchen can be very challenging, and often you won’t realize you don’t have something you need until you’re halfway through a recipe and you notice you don’t own a can opener… not speaking from experience of course…

So I have put together a list of essentials for every kitchen whether you’re moving into your first home, or you have been moved out for some time but you just want to top up on a few new bits.
