New Years Kitchen Resolutions

The New Year is an excellent time to start planning and ringing the changes to things that will enhance you and your family’s life and what better place to start than the family kitchen?

Long considered the most important room in the home, today’s kitchen space has to work on many levels. Not only should it be a place for functional and effective food preparation, but today’s kitchens ideally need an area in which to entertain and relax.

So why not ask yourself the following questions this January?

A kitchen with plenty of workspace will enrich your enjoyment of cooking.

Does your kitchen provide you with all the food preparation capacity you require?

Not having enough work-surface area, particularly when you are preparing several dishes or catering for larger numbers at important social occasions can be frustrating and can impact not on the quality of your food but also your enjoyment in producing it.

Add to this other issues such as not a big enough oven or refrigerator and you can soon find yourself juggling space and struggling to keep with various elements of each food course warm or produced at the desired time.

Does your kitchen provide you with enough storage?

A lack of storage is one of the biggest issues with so many kitchens. Inadequate cupboard and drawer space only serves to clutter your worktop, which in turn limits the amount of workspace you ultimately have!

Does your kitchen provide you with enough seating and socialising space?

Why should you be left out, alone in the kitchen preparing food, when family and friends visit? How great would it be to have an open plan space, where you can join in with the ‘banter’ whilst you prepare, cook and serve?

Such a space requires a dedicated seating area. A breakfast bar that has a clear divide between the cooking and socialising zones, or perhaps a more formal table style dining arrangement is ideal. It could even be a combination of both, and if space permits, perhaps an easy sofa area to retire after entertaining?

Does your kitchen look how you would like it to?

Perhaps your kitchen is very dated, with worn finishes that have seen better days? Perhaps it’s a kitchen that you inherited when you purchased your home – a style and finish that you don’t like and that doesn’t fit in with the rest of your interior décor?
