There’s a reason why the kitchen is often called the heart of the home. It is where all the members of the household meet in the morning for breakfast and coffee before each of them disperses to their duties. It is also to this room that most of the parties held at home are traditionally moved. That’s why it’s a good idea to make sure that the kitchen is decorated not only in a beautiful way, but also in a functional way that makes daily meal preparation and more easy. Here are some simple ways to make sure your kitchen is decorated properly.
Level 0, or what’s on the floor
Contrary to what you might think, the kitchen floor is very important when it comes to keeping it clean. Crumbs that fall off, peelings from vegetables while you’re preparing food or spilt coffee. If you don’t want cleaning the floor to take up most of your time in the kitchen, opt for tiles that are not a solid color. This way, small dirt will be almost invisible and stubborn smudges and dirty joints won’t be a problem for you. It is enough to wipe these types of tiles once a day to make them look spectacular. So, if you have been dreaming of a high-gloss finish on your kitchen floor, consider whether you will have the time to devote to polishing these surfaces.
Moving on a little higher, let’s focus on countertops, what material is worth making them out of has been discussed here, but today let’s focus on their length. It is advisable to make sure at all costs that the length of your kitchen countertops is continuous for as long as possible. This way, when preparing food, you won’t have to move products from place to place, which will make the whole process much easier. Long countertops are also easier to clean. The lack of crevices where food scraps, dust and other debris can accumulate makes it much easier to tidy up your kitchen space.
Choose cabinets to suit your needs
There are many aspects to kitchen decorating that need to be taken into account. One of them is choosing the size and type of cabinets according to the amount of kitchen accessories, products and utensils. That’s why it’s a good idea to consider a few shelves that are taller than the others when you’re ordering and choosing kitchen furniture. This is because they will allow you to easily store tall containers with pasta, groats or other products. If you do not plan for this when arranging the kitchen, you should still make sure that the cabinets allow you to change the location of the shelves thanks to specially drilled holes that, with a few movements, will allow you to move the pegs that support the shelves to a different height.

Coherent and stylish – built-in household appliances
Staying on the topic of easy kitchen cleaning and its stylish look, there is probably no more functional solution than built-in home appliances. Thanks to it, the problem of choosing the right color for the fridge or dishwasher becomes a thing of the past, and everything is carefully hidden under a wooden or other material of your choice. Thanks to this, the kitchen can be cleaned with one preparation and the whole thing looks coherent and stylish. Admittedly, built-in appliances are often smaller in size and capacity, but it’s worth sacrificing those few centimetres.
A friendly, homely atmosphere thanks to window sill arrangements
If your kitchen has a window, it’s worth making sure it has a windowsill too. There is no better place to put aromatic herbs, which on one hand can successfully serve for preparation of meals, and on the other hand will introduce a warm and homely, green accent to the kitchen. Mini herb garden on the windowsill goes well with both wooden kitchen finishes, and those made of stone, metal or plastic, so everyone can afford it.
Arranging a kitchen is not an easy task, but keeping in mind that it is to be, above all, functional and following the above rules, you can get an interesting and stylish effect, which will not only look good, but also make the use of this room more pleasant.
