How to Renovate a Kitchen

So the time has come when the kitchen in its usual state no longer satisfies you. Everything is subject to change and repair: the furniture has darkened and you can’t clean it, the stove has worn out, the sink has cracked, there is no place to put the equipment. Each of us thinks so now and then, when we are tired of the same boring routine and want to leave everything behind and move to some magical place like Bali. But before that, we still decide to try and renovate the kitchen.

How to Renovate a Kitchen


The kitchen space should be organized in such a way that three things could be instantly accessible: sink, stove, refrigerator. Usually these are areas of increased activity, with a counter between them, where you knead and cut the ingredients. It will be a mistake to place a sink in the corner, where dishes and rags would accumulate much quicker.

Useful Place

Most kitchen devices should be within the cook’s reach, it is unacceptable to spend lots of time searching for them. So plan ahead where and what will be stored. Stand in the middle of the kitchen, stretch out your arms and imagine it. You shouldn’t also forget about small shelves that save space and turn out an excellent storage for any little thing, especially if the kitchen is small.

Kitchen Island

This thing is always in the center of the kitchen. Usually it’s a countertop made of artificial stone, often with a built-in sink. A super convenient thing on which you can do everything: place the equipment, cut the food, and even dance, if you really want to. Still, you have to think about an alternative surface. Whether it’s collapsible or a pull-out type, it does not hurt to have a spare working space.

It is important not only to see everything well in the kitchen, but also to try to create a soft, cozy light that will make your time spent cooking more enjoyable. Don’t leave one lonely bulb hanging from the ceiling. Strong light above the active zones and soft illumination in other parts of the kitchen are a must have.

Of course, it’s easier to clean the surface than to make renovations. So don’t decorate the kitchen with the material that is impossible to clean, eventually darkens and absorbs all the smells.

This is not such a novelty, but you can often find a kitchen without it. Nevertheless, remember that there should always be fresh air in your kitchen.

Trash Can

There is no point in reminding once again that you need to take out the trash more often, and therefore use a smaller container. You must think about where and in what amount you store it. This is especially important for recycling. Remember that there should be a place in the kitchen which is intended only for storing trash cans.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I’m really loving the theme/design of your website.
