A kitchen is one of the places that people tend to spend a lot of time. If you are the cook in the house, you might occasionally find yourself getting the urge to change things, throw things out, or make changes that will make things easier or more functional. This article lists a few of these changes that you can consider. Some might require more work and might be more expensive and others can be done in a day. Have a look and see if they strike your fancy.
- Herb garden – There are so many ways that you can go with a herb garden. You can hang pots, build a wall for them, etc. Having your own herb garden makes cooking so much more enjoyable. No need to run to the shops every time you want to cook. Planting and caring for your herbs can also be therapeutic and it will create a great atmosphere in your kitchen.
- Cupboard pantry – If you don’t have space for a walk-in pantry, don’t worry. Use your cabinets as a pantry. You can store bottles, jars, cereals, appliances, and much more in a cupboard pantry without giving up too much space in your kitchen.
- Kitchen island – A kitchen island is great for many reasons. Some already built kitchens may not allow for this, but new kitchens can incorporate it in the plans. An island can separate the stove from the rest of the kitchen. It can add an extra sink to the kitchen. It adds more surface space and if you can make it have extra storage, you have a winner. You can use the island for extra drawer space for pots and pans or a spice drawer.
- Chalkboard wall – This is an ideal way to get rid of the fridge magnets and tons of sticky notes of to-do lists, shopping lists, recipes, etc. You get a specific type of paint that makes your walls like a chalkboard. This is an easy change to make and will help you declutter the kitchen.
Hopefully, some of these ideas have set the wheels turning in your mind. Adding any of these will make your kitchen space more practical.
