It is never too soon to be thinking about what you can do to make more kitchen space in time for Christmas. From creating space to accommodate the entire family, to add more space for cooking function, it’s important to be prepped ahead of time.
So, let’s get your kitchen streamlined in time for the festive season! This week, we have a list of handy tips and tricks to ensure your kitchen will run efficiently at Christmas. With these tips, you will be able to cook everything perfectly while keeping all your guests entertained!
Making use of vertical space with the implementation of wall-mounted or standalone storage is great for freeing up floor space. It also helps to declutter areas in the kitchen. From corner cabinets to extra shelving, finding the right storage solution for your space can give its function a huge boost! Not to mention, it can certainly make an attractive space.
When it’s time to for your Christmas supermarket shopping, it’s ideal that you have optimised kitchen storage. You will need the space to accommodate the nibbles, treats and sweets reserved for your guests. This means you will be prepared for anyone who intends to drop by. It also means you needn’t venture to and from the supermarket for more supplies. Instead, you can spend more time relaxing with your friends and family.
Better yet, by adding more storage facilities into your kitchen, you will have more surface space. This will keep the area as decluttered as possible. Your kitchen space will become a stress-free environment, giving more prep space for Christmas dinner. The more space you have to work with, the smoother your day will go!
If you have been handed the role of hosting all the extended family, then a kitchen island may be the answer. This will give you some necessary extra prep and social space while keeping your kitchen sleek and stylish. Give it an accent colour that stands out against your storage units. Doing so will create a functional centrepiece that will wow everyone who visits your home. Adding barstools to one side will enable the kitchen island to double as a space for dining and entertainment. Whether it be your morning coffee or evening drinks, an island does wonders for your kitchen space.
If you are feeling really wild, open plans are certainly a popular choice for many homes. A new, open space will give you more flexibility in terms of how many people you can accommodate. What’s more, it is the perfect way to ensure you can stay involved in the festivities while you cook!
Opt for a large dining table to ensure you can host all of your guests. If possible, make sure you keep it away from the central source of natural light. Doing so will help the area to stay uncluttered and will utilise natural light to boost the illusion of space.
Furthermore, having a large open area is ideal if you plan to host parties. This doesn’t just apply to Christmas either, your home can provide the perfect function space for all upcoming events in your life. This could be birthdays, New Year’s, a Halloween bash or anything else!
The festive season can be a stressful time for many people. However, if you follow these tips, you can make more kitchen space in time for Christmas. This will ensure that the season ahead will run smoothly, efficiently, and as stress-free as possible!
