When things are messy in your kitchen, you are less likely to cook at home in favor of eating out. While more convenient than cooking in a dysfunctional space, eating out is expensive, and doesn’t solve the issue at hand. No matter the state of your kitchen, you can fix it up to satisfy your inner Iron Chef without resorting to extensive remodeling.
The first step to creating your dream kitchen is to determine what kitchen supplies you have, and what kinds of storage space you have to work with. Get rid of any dishes and cooking utensils you don’t use - if you haven’t used the stainless steal wok you planned on stir-frying all your vegetables in yet, you shouldn’t waste your space storing it. With your new space, rearrange your remaining dishes and utensils in an organic way based on how you use them.
Displaying beautiful dishes is a great way to create new space in your kitchen. Placing your fine china in a hutch in the dining room frees up the drawer under the stove, makes it easier to get to it on special occasions, and decorates your home with things you already own. Hanging wine and pot racks literally create space that you couldn’t use before, and show off your pretty glasses.
You’ve gathered your utensils, optimized your space, and used your dishes to decorate, now it’s time to add the finishing touches to the dream kitchen you didn’t know you had. You don’t want to go overboard with decorative objects in your kitchen, but can still make your space unique. Between your display dishes and the paint and wall paper choices you make, you can create your dream kitchen perfect for cooking and entertaining!
