How To Create A Happy Kitchen
In our previous challenge, we dove into the kitchen and tidied and organized our kitchen utensils. I was completely surprised by how easy it was to find 12 items in this category to donate or toss. I have never used an egg separator, but had three! I am sure there is some beginner cook out there somewhere that will be blessed with at least one of my handy kitchen tools.
Did you find anything to donate or toss yesterday? Remember we are learning to be Captains of our Kitchens! It is up to us to reduce clutter so that we can easily tidy our kitchen throughout the day.
We need some eye-candy motivation! Because busy moms need the motivation to create a happy kitchen! And that is our plan today! We are going to learn how to create a happy kitchen alone with our clutter challenge.
What makes you smile when you prepare a meal for your family?
“The transition from cloth to paper napkins began in 1887, when John Dickinson used paper napkins at a company party in the United States. This change remained unformalized until 1931 when Scott Paper added them to the American market” ~Evolution of the Napkin
How To Create A Happy Kitchen
- Clear the clutter from countertops and the kitchen table. Clear spaces promote peace and also help get meals on the table in a more efficient manner.
- Natural Light- Take advantage of natural light or add lights where you can. Open the curtains, raise the blinds, turn on the lights! This will instantly make the room feel happier. Light is a natural mood booster.
- Add Plants – Adding a live plant or keeping fresh flowers adds instant cheer to the kitchen. The vibrant colors paired with the fragrance are the perfect addition to your happy kitchen. Think fresh cut in seasonal flowers or bright green potted basil plants!
- Make It Inviting – Create a happy kitchen environment that welcomes your family. Add a bowl of crisp apples or juicy oranges. Keep fresh vegetables cut up and ready to serve for snacks in the fridge. Create a small coffee and tea bar, and keep ice cold water flavored with fruit as a treat for the kids!
- Add Things You Love – Add accessories in colors you love to your happy kitchen. Think about adding a few framed photos of your children’s artwork and framed photos of your family. Use these to create a collage of fun wall art. This wall will be a great conversation starter with friends and family.
