When it comes to renovating your home, most people tend to leave their kitchen to last and put up with having a date, barely functional kitchen whilst they get the bedrooms and living areas up to date and looking dapper, which is fair enough. However, the kitchen is deserving of much more respect than we afford it. It’s the place where we start off our days, sharing breakfast with our family, its where we cook up nutritious meals to enjoy and sustain ourselves and its that secret place where we all sneak off to in the middle of the night for a cheeky snack. In fact, the kitchen tends to see the most traffic throughout the day. People dropping in and out, preparing snacks, grabbing a healthy bite, preparing hot drinks and smoothies and so on. So, why is it then that we tend to leave it till last?
Sure, it’s important to have a comfortable place where we can return to after a hard day at work, curl up on the sofa and binge watch our favourite series. And of course, you want to feel comfortable in your bedroom so that you can get a comfortable night’s sleep. But a quality, functioning kitchen with all the trimmings? What could be more important than that?
Having a dated kitchen which has fallen into disrepair is a great way to encourage unhealthy eating. People with kitchens that they’re not satisfied tend to order take out more frequently and skip cooking in favour of a microwave meal. These are habits which we should knock on the head, particularly if you have children.
Cook More, Eat Well, Feel Better
The main benefit of having a beautifully renovated kitchen is feeling inspired to cook. It’s nice to have a kitchen that you can be proud of so that you will enjoy cooking more. A place where you can invite your children to bake cakes and learn to cook various, simple dishes. It’s a place where you can teach them to respect food and value a healthy diet. It’s also a great place to sit up till the early hours of the morning, gossiping with your favourite people over a bottle of wine after everyone else from the party have returned home.
Something You Can be Proud of
