Although you’re definitely allowed to be a minimalist when it comes to your kitchen, adding special touches to the cooking space can go a long way.
Making the kitchen homey and welcoming is essential, both for you as the cook, especially since you spend so much time there, as well as for your family and guests who are surely spending time at your table and in your kitchen while at your home.
Surely, the dishes that come from your stove and oven and their accompanying aromas are inviting enough to leave your guests drooling, but it’s nice to make the space personable and reflective of you and your family.
Adding seasonality to the kitchen space is important too, especially if you host guests often.
By adding a few seasonal touches, it will be easier for you as an entertainer to create an atmosphere that’s fitting for the occasion and the time of year.
Above all, if a kitchen isn’t comfortable, you’re not going to want to spend time in it, and who wants to cook a stunning and delicious meal in a kitchen they can’t stand? Not us, that’s for sure.
