A cleanup for your kitchen
Apart from your bathroom, your kitchen can be a place for mold and mildew growth so it is very important that you take steps to clean and tidy your kitchen often even if you don’t use it a lot. Pay attention to the counters, sink area, kitchen tiles, cupboards, and shelves and also get rid of the clutter you have in the kitchen. Empty wrappers, tines, jars and also food that are expired and things that you no longer use should be thrown away. Do the same for your refrigerator as well. Check for the things and items you can’t use. This is also a good time to check your supply and if you are running low on any food items write them down so you can easily shop for them without wasting time.
Things within reach
Another amazing way for youto stop wasting time in the kitchen is by keeping the necessary stuff organized and within your reach. A well organized kitchen is always a relaxing place to be and it makes work easy for you. So, check for apt containers for all the ingredients and fix shelves so you can store them neatly to banish the cramped looks of the kitchen. You can even have a separate area where you store cutting boards, measuring spoons and cook books for your ease.
It’s so nice to have a separate tea bar in your kitchen. This is great if you have extra space and want to make the most out of it. If you are not a fan of tea then opt for coffee bar. This is where you place all the necessary ingredients to make tea/coffee, your coffee maker and also different types, flavors and brands of tea/coffee packets.
The feeling of a healthy environment
For a healthy kitchen you can’t stay without some plants and not just plants but some indoor veggies and flowers ideal for the place. check for indoor veggies and herbs like basil, mint, bell peppers, carrots, green onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, sorrel, ginger, pineapple, strawberries, thyme, lettuce, lemongrass, leek, arugula, and fennel which you can grow from your kitchen and make it look healthier and a place where nature is welcomed with wide open hands. You don’t need a huge space for these but apt containers will do the job.
