The other day eating with Parmelia, my colleague from the Easy Cooking blog, she was wondering what she was working on at the time. “I am writing a post in relation to house moves and everything that can lead to a family,” I replied. “Well, do you know what could be a good topic and what is related to what you are writing? How to dress a kitchen ”.
He was absolutely right. When we move home one of the main things we have to do is take care of the new kitchen. The usual thing is that she is without clothes, without equipping, prepared only with the essential … Totally naked, or almost 😉
Along with the living-dining room, the kitchen is the most important and essential place in a home; These two rooms are surely the ones that a family uses the most. Think about it, we prepare food in it, we store all our utensils and cooking utensils, most of the important household appliances in the house are in it, even many families prefer to live together for most of the hours in the kitchen: in it we eat and dine, our children can do their homework and study, we enjoy a coffee or a soft drink while we watch television … The kitchen is an essential part of our home and our lives, that is why we must fill it with life.
And how do I dress my kitchen?
Very easy. It is a matter of imagination and really knowing what it is that you want and need; planning. When you have it clear, do not be scared with everything you have to buy, there are many pages on the internet that can help you get them, in my case, I always visit and rely on Lions Home , is a website where you can find hundreds of products for the home and their decoration.
Let’s start to conceive and project our new kitchen. The first thing is to divide it into the spaces that we believe are essential and basic: the cooking area, the appliance area and the living and family area.
The cooking area. This space has to be very versatile and functional, the important thing is to have everything organized and at hand. When we cook our best recipes we cannot waste time looking for the utensils and utensils we need at all times, so it is very important that everything is well ordered and arranged in the kitchen furniture : dishes all together, cutlery all together, knives all together, batteries all together … And everything always at hand and knowing where everything is. If you do it this way you will avoid going crazy. If your kitchen is spacious, do not hesitate to locate an island, it is a great idea that will help you a lot when cooking.
The area of household appliances. We usually make the mistake of not giving importance to this part of our kitchen or of believing that it is not necessary to emphasize so much in it. “A washing machine is always a washing machine. And the same goes for the fridge. All these machines are identical ”. My mother used to say, what she couldn’t understand is how wrong she was. Kitchen appliances They are so important that we must take all the time in the world to find out which ones we really need and what their characteristics should be. When I had to equip my kitchen, I followed these tips and they were of great help to me: find out conveniently before buying, search and do research on internet forums; Before purchasing an appliance, be very clear about the use that you are going to give it, if you are only going to use it a couple of times, do not buy it; you can have equipment of different brands, there will be no problem or incompatibility between them; Gas or electricity? Undoubtedly, the energy that is cheaper; Always buy quality appliances, in the long run you will realize that they have been a great investment. Finally, measure very well all the gaps where you are going to place the appliances.
The living and family area. It has to be the most intimate place in the kitchen, the area that is farthest from the appliances, where you can calmly talk with other people, allow you to relax while enjoying your favorite drink or offer your children the possibility of being concentrating while doing school exercises or studying for their exams. As it is a living area, use a comfortable table and chairs where everyone can feel at ease.
And you will get a kitchen dressed to your style and personality. It will be then when you prepare a good coffee, you sit in one of those comfortable chairs that you have chosen, rest your arms on the table and observe the entire kitchen. “Well, I have not been bad. It’s great! It has been a fantastic kitchen ”. You will think while you continue to enjoy your coffee and feel proud of your cooking and the great work you have done.
