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.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
