How to Organise Your Kitchen This Christmas
The kitchen really is the heart of every home especially at Christmas, so it’s important to keep it looking sleek and ready for hosting. We can’t deny that everyone is prone to a little overindulgence at Christmas but when you have limited space to store your festive food and decorations it can become stressful, so you need to think smart.
Whether you’re using your kitchen for cooking a festive family dinner or throwing a Christmas party for friends, clever storage solutions, seating and table arrangements will make your life a lot easier! Our kitchen designer has shared some simple tips on how to keep your kitchen organised this Christmas.
Re-order your fridge
First things first, be sure to re-order and clear enough space in your fridge – it may be an obvious one but it’s a common problem when we’re prone to over purchasing during the festive season. You’re going to need to plenty of room to accommodate the big Christmas shop and for all those extra dishes that family and friends bring. There’s nothing worse than hiding festive foods around the house which create unnecessary clutter!
For most families, the kitchen is the hub of the home – clutter-free worktops and practical storage ideas will keep the room functional and looking great. You will need ample table space, so you can’t afford to have clutter. Resourceful rotating or floating corner storage can bring the contents of your cupboard to you whilst keeping your kitchen organised and easy to access. Bathroom & Kitchen Planet makes every unique kitchen to order and offer the best German Schüller storage solutions.
Storing your festive tipples
Integrating a drinks storage into your kitchen, regardless of the rooms style or size, will not only add an element of sophistication to your kitchen but will also make it easier for you to reach for the Bucks Fizz on Christmas morning or the prosecco at a Christmas party. Bathroom & Kitchen Planet have a range of design options so it’s easy to find a wine cooler that suits your kitchen.
Have a mess free party
Take away the hassle of cleaning up after a Christmas party and sort out the recycling by integrating aesthetically-pleasing bins into your kitchen decor. Hidden away behind a cupboard door and designed to house your separated paper, glass and plastic for recycling, compartmented bins are ideal for busy fun-loving hosts that still want to be eco-friendly. AEG self-cleaning ovens are popular, and we can see why as they make the dreaded clean-up the next morning much more lighter work. The pyrolytic technology means they burn away any grease and dirt, leaving a fine ash to simply wipe away.
It’s all about ease when entertaining – you need to make sure you and your guests are relaxed. Getting creative with your seating arrangements can be a real help when entertaining, as letting tired feet rest will mean no complaints and more drinks! A great way to incorporate seating into your kitchen is around your island or an extended breakfast bar. For a real party showstopper opt for Schüller's Targa kitchen island which provides great space for a bar and a central area to perch; perfect for hosting friends and family.
