A light and airy kitchen fills the occupants of the home with joy, ensuring that the kitchen is a place in which people want to linger. The longer we spend in the kitchen the more likely we are to take care and attention over the meals that we prepare and cook. If your kitchen is in a small room or is narrow and dark you can easily lighten the space by adding lights, mirrors or by painting the walls or cupboards in a light colour. Excellent colours for the walls in a kitchen are white, cream or pale green, the white and cream will automatically lighten the space whilst green brings in the wood element, an important element that helps bring balance to the kitchen.
The kitchen is the workshop of the homemaker. In the average household, she spends the equivalent of 3 full months a year – 24 hours a day around the clock – in preparing, cooking and serving food, baking cakes and pies, and washing pots and pans. Modernizing a kitchen to make it more enjoyable to work in, to add extra conveniences and time–savers is the ideal of every homemaker. The kitchen is a room that calls for a large outlay of money, but once it is wisely built, you‘ll be happy you made the investment.
When it comes to the kitchen, a homeowner chooses comfort over happiness. If you are comfortable with the layout of the kitchen, you may not want to change it. But, remember that you must pay attention to the kitchen because it is the heart of your home. If the kitchen is old and dingy, it can attract the growth of mold and mildew. Also, an old kitchen with a broken countertop or damaged cabinets can cause injury to your family members. As a homeowner, if you are unable to make a decision about remodeling the kitchen, do not worry. Here are a couple of signs that will indicate it is time to take care of the kitchen:
Electricity brought many timesaving devices into the kitchen, as well as many inventions that pulled us away from the kitchen. Due to the innovations in the kitchen, fewer people were needed to prepare meals, so the kitchen lost a lot of its social importance and became a smaller, super–efficient working room. Built–in cabinetry, previously delegating only to Butler‘s pantries in larger homes, now became the best way to shrink the kitchen into an efficient workspace. With more leisure time, socializing was delegated to the living areas of the house, because the kitchen was too small.
