The kitchen is one of the most important areas in a house. You spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so investing in a good one is highly recommended. After a while, however, your kitchen will start to feel less warm and a bit outdated. Being a high-traffic area, you will also start seeing signs of wear.
Making your kitchen appear fresher and more comfortable doesn’t always have to mean embarking on a big kitchen remodeling project. With a few simple tweaks, the right ideas, and some new kitchenware, you can freshen up your kitchen in several simple steps.
When you have a lot of cookware and appliances stored in the kitchen, the space itself can feel less comfortable or even cluttered. This makes the way you store your cookware and the kind of utensils you use around the kitchen matter.
Much of the kitchenware available today is designed to be compact and easy to store. Rather than having several mixing bowls that take up a lot of space when stored, for example, you can now use the 9-piece compact mixing bowl set from Joseph Joseph. Each piece fits into a bigger one perfectly, making storing this set easy.
Another item you can add to the kitchen in order to declutter the space is a magnet for your cookware. Instead of using a wooden (and often bulky) knife block, you can now add a magnetic strip to one of the walls and store knives and other metal appliances magnetically.
Magnabode has a gorgeous stainless-steel magnetic strip that is long enough for a large set of knives. It can be used to store anything from a large butcher’s knife to your steak knife. Besides, the magnetic stripe also makes picking up the right knife when cooking easier.
New Cutting Board
You can also add beautiful cutting boards, particularly cutting boards that are so beautiful that you can leave them permanently on the kitchen countertop, to liven up the space. There are a lot of wooden cutting boards to choose from, but the one to get is the cutting board from Virginia Boys.
The cutting board from Virginia Boys isn’t just beautiful, but also very functional. It is made from sustainable materials and finished using food-safe wax. There is a groove around the cutting area to prevent juice or other liquid from dripping. It even has a nice texture that will complete your kitchen.
Magnets are perfect for decluttering the kitchen because they allow you to store things in an unusual way. Another way you can use magnets to improve your kitchen is by picking up the Gneiss Spice magnetic spice jars.
The lid of the jars is magnetic, and they work well with your refrigerator doors. There is also a stainless-steel wall plate from the same brand if you want to create your own DIY magnetic spice rack. Since the lids are already magnetic, you don’t need a special magnetic strip for the jars.
Knives with Style
You cannot have a functional kitchen without a functional set of knives. If you are not fond of the idea of using magnets to store your knives openly, then the knife block set to get is the Mercer Culinary Genesis 6-Piece Forged Knife Block Set.
The set comes with a tempered glass block that is transparent, compact, and absolutely gorgeous. The set of six knives is also very functional and beautifully made. This set is very easy to clean too.
These simple ideas and the small tweaks you can do allows you to freshen up your kitchen without doing a complete remodel. As you can see, there are so many things you can do to turn your old kitchen into a beautiful space the whole family will love.
