A beautiful kitchen will improve your family life

According to a recent study, when it comes to family gatherings, people prefer to spend some quality time in the kitchen rather than in the living room. So, home decor experts suggest that a beautiful kitchen will improve your family life as well. 

So, it’s important to make a good impression when your family or other guests visit you and if you opt for an elegant and fashionable kitchen, you will be more likely to make them feel special. 

According to an American survey, people consider their kitchen to be the heart of their home and it makes sense, because this is the place where you fuel your body, mind and soul with food and positive energy.  

However, the idea is that kitchens are not just for cooking your meals, but for living as well, and you have to take this into consideration when starting a new renovation project. For instance, when renovating, you have to consider a lot of things, such as your family memories, the room’s energy, aroma and texture. In other words, choose your pieces of furniture more carefully. 

The truth is that we live in an era where kitchens are considered the new living rooms, so take advantage of this when choosing the new design or style of this room. In this regard, some people choose to transform their kitchen into living spaces so that they can create larger rooms for family gatherings. Being the most important room in your house, you can maximize the space if possible. But if you can’t do this, then choose a minimalist design that can create the illusion of a bigger space, a cozy atmosphere and don’t forget that every family member should have a chair. It’s important to remember that there are a lot of possibilities to remodel your small kitchen.

You have to be organized in your kitchen

Another aspect that you have to keep in mind when it comes to renovating your kitchen is the organization and it usually involves easy access to your kitchen utensils and spices. According to Carly Waters, an interior designer and expert organizer, you have to start by the stove when setting up your kitchen, because this is the place where you spend a lot of time. “If you’re right handed, your cooking utensils — like your spatula, slotted spoons, and tongs — should go in the drawer to the right of the stove. That way, you don’t have to walk across the kitchen to grab something you need right away when you’re cooking. I always put my spices right by the stove because you use them so much when you’re prepping and cooking. You don’t want to have to walk over to the pantry in the middle of cooking.”

In addition, you have to apply the same rule when it comes to your cookware and appliances. It’s important to have easy access to them. Moreover, try to keep what you use every day on the counter to keep the clutter at bay. So, store your blender, toaster and other appliances in your cabinets. You should know that if you keep your kitchen decluttered and organized, you will create the illusion of a bigger space.
