Get the Most Out of Your KitchenLee Johnson
It’s the ultimate heart of your home. The one place where your family come together for an hour or so to indulge of delicious, mouth watering foods and thirst quenching drinks. Whether your kitchen is located in the very centre of your home or to the rear, there are a couple of tricks to help you make the most of your kitchen this new year.
When it comes to getting the most out of your kitchen, the first thing to take a look at is your storage. Organising your cupboards and neatly stacking plates, cups, trays and pans may seem like a simple cleaning chore, but it’s a great way for you to get the most out of your storage units (not to mention you don’t need to dig around your kitchen for that one, particular, piece of crockery).
Alternatively, if your cupboards are organised to the extreme, you can always invest in wall and ceiling fixtures. Creative solutions to storing your kitchen utensils and equipment not only makes the most out of those tricky corners and empty spaces, but they also look amazing!
Let in the Light
Light in a kitchen is vital for that refreshing, homely feel. There are a number of ways in which you can help brighten up your kitchen and let those rays of sunshine reach the darkest of corners.
First and foremost, take a look at your windows, if your windows are particularly small you may wish to cover them with window tape instead of investing in a set of blinds. This way natural light will constantly be able to enter your kitchen without your neighbours seeing into your home.
Another way is to invest in decent light bulbs for the main lights in your kitchen or why not look into installing small LED lights into the skirting board under your cupboards? Not only can these add to the overall feel of your kitchen, but adding in extra lighting can help brighten those difficult worktop areas.
Using Tiles in Your Kitchen
Tiles in your kitchen is a must-have if you want to protect your walls from damp. That doesn’t mean you need to stick to the same old colour and designs you’ve been using for the past couple of years.
Colour and texture in your kitchen is a great way to keep your kitchen looking fresh and in helping brighten up small spaces. As with any room, light colours can help in the dispersal of sun light though for smaller kitchens, choosing a tile with a smooth, shiny coating can further help to reflect light around your room.
For larger kitchens, however, a matt tile can work wonders in grounding your kitchen, soaking up excess light and creating a warming environment for the whole family.
Our Porcelanosa tiles offer a range of matt and shiny tiles which innovative, modern designs you can enjoy no matter what style or size of your kitchen.
