A happy you is just a meal and some home hacks away. Keep it lite at home with these tips and recipes.
Everything you need to know while setting up your kitchen
It’s the kitchen where most of your life happens. It’s here you might steal a moment or two over that boiling pot of tea, and wonder about life. It’s here that you will giggle with a friend while stocking up on your cookies for your all-nighter. This is the place that has been witness to your random squeals of joy or all those jumps when that special someone replied to your text. It is ironical that a room that’s witness to so many shades of varied emotions, is blank in appearance. This is also the space where you resolve to eat healthy food. But, we will not get into how many times you end up fulfilling your resolutions.
It is so important that your kitchen’s aesthetics are on-point. Here are some tips to help you beautify this important space:
For the ones who think less is more
Now there are some women who love tiny kitchens. But to avoid cluttering it and to also not let that ‘smallness’ get to you, it is best to opt for handle-less cabinets and a minimal white colour palette for the entire kitchen. We’re sure you are going to cook some fabulous delicacies in this peaceful space.
For the ones who love the airy feel
You can choose open shelving as that removes the visual weight. This ensures that you don’t experience that sense of being cramped and is a lot breezier. If you still want shelves, you can choose glass over materials like wood.
For the ones who want their kitchen to be more
You can add a small folding table in your kitchen. Tall step stools are a great seating idea for all those times when you have an extra guest at lunch. You need not have a huge dining space. Even this has enough character.
For the ones who want their kitchen to have a personality
You can always add some unique artwork to your kitchen decor. Posters, art prints etc. Make sure that none of this is above the stove. It is always nice to have your cooking area bereft of any accessories.
We are certain that you are already buzzing with ideas for your kitchen. And we would love to see your creativity. Do tell us how ‘Project Kitchen’ turned out in the comments below and the number of times you cooked healthy meals in your jazzy space.
