The Heart Of The Home.
For many of us the kitchen is not just used for mealtime; often it is also the command center of the home. Of course it’s a living space designated for cooking, but it often serves a variety of other needs as well. Because of its multiple uses, mail, messages, and paperwork can pile up on the table. Electronics, medications, tools and art supplies may overwhelm the counter tops, or else we stuff them into drawers to be lost forever. Some of us also need to squeeze in the pet’s food and paraphernalia. Whatever your kitchen needs to hold, it should also be a place where you can enjoy preparing and sharing in a meal.
A FUNctional kitchen is inviting and pleasant to be in. It doesn’t have to be spotless, but it does have to store your cooking equipment so you can find what you need. If your kitchen is the heart of your home, it may also need an organizational system for the paper that streams in from the mailbox and the children’s backpacks.
Are your cabinets full of stuff you never use? How many “junk” drawers are in your kitchen? Do you have a junk cabinet too? If your kitchen were more organized and less cluttered, how would this impact your daily routine?
- Get yourself or the family ready and out the door easier in the morning.
- Reclaim your counter space from piles of clutter.
- Create better storage for the items you use most.
- Make fewer trips to the store and stop buying duplicate items.
- Easily access the essential items you need when cooking.
- Enjoy cooking in your kitchen – make it work for you.
- Control the flow of paper and everything else that turns up in the kitchen.
The kitchen is a complicated space and requires some initial effort and ongoing maintenance to be organized. Still, any efforts to simplify and streamline a kitchen can have a tremendous impact on your daily routines. If you haven’t organized your kitchen in a while, give Heather a call.
