A Practical And Attractive Kitchen

A Practical And Attractive Kitchen


Randall Povinelli

Your kitchen can be both attractive as well as practical simultaneously. For tips in achieving this, see the tips below.

– Light your kitchen correctly. Do you have under cabinet lighting? Lighting on your countertop is essential considering that upper cabinets create shadows on your work area. Above cabinet lighting is a nice impressive effect. You can add decorative lights like a ceiling fan or chandelier.

– Arrange your items pragmatically. Are your pots and potholder by the cooktop? Are your cookie sheets by the oven? When you use the very last of the cereal, do you have a handy spot within your kitchen area to write that item on your shopping list?


– Ban the non-kitchen untidiness. The kitchen countertop is not really a spot for mail, keys, backpacks, loose change, newspaper or other clutter (especially if you have beautiful stone kitchen countertops). Make sure these items have a home. Keep only needed things in the kitchen.

– Purge duplicates and unneeded things wasting valuable space in your kitchen. Do you have a number of ice cream scoops, pizza cutters, can openers, or other utensil? What about small kitchen appliances that you practically never use collecting dust in your cupboards – a fondue set, salad spinner, ice cream maker, or vacuum sealer?

– Be thoughtful with the art work on the walls of your kitchen. Consider a sizeable chalkboard to write your shopping list or the supper menu. Because lighting is so essential, a big mirror to reflect light around the area would also be nice. Artwork with lots of color will certainly produce a pleasing space. Do not affix anything to the front of your refrigerator. If you must, put a handful of vital items only on the least noticeable side of your refrigerator.

– Have only practical add-ons in your kitchen. Put away the faux plants, containers of cooking utencils, ornamental platters you will do not use, dish washing accessories that are not used every day, hanging pots that almost hit your head, the tea kettle sitting on your range that you never use, the cookbook holder that gets utilized two times a year, any smaller appliance that is not utilized every day, along with any other cluttery items. Replace them with clear glass decanters for your flour, sugar, pasta, dry cereal, rice, beans, and other items that you will really use. The only items on your counter ought to be items that are used a minimum of once a week. If you do use a kitchen appliance daily, make sure it is a top quality attractive appliance.

– Add cabinet hardware to the cabinets in your kitchen. Cabinet openers as well as pulls are not only jewelry for the space, they also protects the cabinets from abrasion. If you have stainless steel appliances or a stainless steel sink, think about adding stainless steel doorknobs and pulls (not shiny chrome).

– Think about getting rid of the items from atop the upper cabinets in your kitchen. These objects collect dust. Typically cabinets with nothing at all on them appear much better than those with artificial plants.
