More often than not, redoing your kitchen means changing its color to prevent it from getting drab and bringing more vibrancy to the room itself. It is an accepted fact that color affects our moods and state of mind because it brings back memories of a time past that has an effect in our present actions.
For example, the right color can improve efficiency, hasten the recovery of patients in hospitals or affect the passage of time. A room colored red may give the impression that time is moving at a snail’s pace while a blue or green room has an altogether different effect. Bold, vibrant colors like red, appear nearer, are easier to see and attract our fancy faster then cool colors like blue.

Platters and other shallow items such as cutting boards can be stored upright in narrow spaces next to the kitchen range or the kitchen sink. For easy organization, install dividers to separate items.

2. Don’t just put stuff anywhere. Have a place for storage. Kitchen can be one of the places at home that can accumulate so much dirt and trash. So make sure you have proper cabinets installed.

How To Clean Your Kitchen

 

Your kitchen should be kept clean at all times. This part of your house should be given a lot of attention because this is where you store and prepare food and to state the obvious, anything that you put in your mouth should be clean to avoid getting any disease or bacteria.

Aside from the everyday task of washing the dishes, wiping the table and sweeping what you need to do is anything that has nothing to do with the kitchen should be thrown away. The trash bin should be emptied all the time, especially if you put left over food inside. If kept for a long time, it will start to smell and attract insects which you don’t want in your home.

Clean appliances at least 2 times a week. It is likely that your stove and microwave would have food stains so wipe it. Use a kitchen spray that disinfects and make sure no food is out when you’re doing it. And when cleaning the sink, Baking soda with ordinary white vinegar is an excellent cleaner for stainless steel.

Induction Cooktops

If you’re thinking of replacing your old stove, and have money to burn, why don’t you consider an induction cooktop? It’s more expensive than conventional gas cooktops or smoothtop electric cooktops, but in general it performs better and is said to be the safest and most energy-efficient way to cook. Induction cooktops use electromagnetic energy to heat the pan. It won’t start unless you place an iron-based pan on top, and will automatically switch off when the pan is removed. It powers up fast, and you can adjust the heat setting instantly and with greater precision than an electric stove. Unlike a traditional gas stove, it has a smooth, flat, easy to clean surface, that heats evenly, so you don’t get “hot spots”. Also, the surrounding area always stays cool, so it makes for a cooler kitchen, and a safety plus for families with young kids who like to poke their fingers everywhere. Induction cookers also make your kitchen look more modern and stylish.
