The Importance of a Good Kitchen

 No home is complete without a kitchen. It is the place where meals are prepared, food is stored, drinks are poured, where bakery is done, and where memories are made. In fact, there’s good arguments to be had that a kitchen is the most important part of a house, for many reasons. 

It’s this importance that makes it vital that you have a good, functional kitchen that works well for you and your needs, as it can influence and dictate so much of your life. Not convinced? Here are a few reasons why the kitchen is the most important room in your house and why you should strive to have a good one. 

A Kitchen Dictates Your Lifestyle 

The manner in which you use your kitchen makes a huge statement about how you live your life. For starters, the stuff in your fridge and pantry dictates the type of diet you have, but a clean or dirty kitchen also demonstrates some of your values as a person and may be suggestive of whether you’re a proactive or lazy person. Think about it: taking the care to clean and look after your kitchen will translate into the rest of your life. 

As well as this, the utilities found in your kitchen can influence your lifestyle and how you live. For example, kitchens with toasters or coffee machines mean you’re going to be consuming that product more often. Therefore, it’s important to design your kitchen to suit your needs and desires. You can use to help you create your ideal kitchen.

Family Space

A living room is more commonly associated with family time and being a family orientated space, but a kitchen has those same capabilities, too. It has increasingly become an area where family congregate to discuss their day and share aspects of their lives. Therefore, it’s a good idea to accommodate this and install come comfy chairs or a kitchen island where members can gather around. Another good idea, if most members of the family are of age, is to create an in-home bar where people can share drinks and enjoy each other’s company. This makes it even more inviting for people to sit, do work and chat. 

Kitchens are Evolving 

Kitchens are dynamic spaces where the biggest examples of life can be found. Kitchens change over time and grow depending on the needs and desires of the homeowner. What was once just a place to prepare meals has now become the main storage area of a house, filled with vital utilities such as fridges, ovens, sinks — all things to prepare food with — but a lot of kitchens also house washing machines and even televisions, turning it into a multifunctional space for many different needs. 

Kitchens are also evolving to become one of the most eco-friendly parts of the home as well. This is because there’s been a high influx of smart devices such as energy trackers, low energy appliances, and alternative fuel techniques that have affected the kitchen more so than other areas, making it the driving force of a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
