The kitchen is the heart of every home. It is a place to make memories, where recipes can be passed between generations, and where you can make heart-warming food that can fill your entire home with warmth and delicious scents.
During the winter, your home's kitchen and dining area should be one of the warmest rooms in the house. This feeling of warmth will make is extra cozy for you when you are planning your dinner parties or enjoying time with your loved ones.
If you are looking for ways to make your kitchen more open and inviting this holiday season, read our favorite tips below! We want you and your loved ones to enjoy a space that is relaxing, cozy and above all hygge.
The Center of Entertainment
As the heart of every home, the kitchen also becomes the heart of every party or festive occasion. Even if you try to encourage family and friends to spend time in your living or dining room, everyone eventually migrates to the kitchen. Make your kitchen a center of entertainment with overflowing drinks, snacks and fruits, allowing you to easily serve and visit with your guests.
We recommend a multi-purpose table that allows you to store your must-have kitchen ingredients and cooking utensils, but that also includes a display space to serve your favorite treats and snacks around which guests can gather.
This is a design that works just about anywhere. Console table or open-fronted shelving, it is ideal for a hallway, dining room, living area, bathroom or kitchen. Here and there is a mark of distressing, done purposefully to grant it a pre-loved air and antique quality. The solid teak boxes make storage that little bit more fun. On top, below, or both; any configuration works. In a kitchen we like to stash fresh vegetables and free-flowing herbs inside, or elsewhere in the home, children’s toys or craft essentials.
You Can Never Have Enough Holiday Decorations
One of the easiest way to make your kitchen ready this season, is by decorating your kitchen area with winter or holiday accessories. Go with dried plants, flowers, a small Christmas tree or your hand made decor.
Above all, do not forget the most essential decoration this season: Candles. Candles can bring coziness and warmth into your space, especially those with comforting scents. Adding candles in fall and winter scents like apple, pumpkin, sandalwood, vanilla and cinnamon will make your home instantly winter ready!
Add a Winter's Touch to Your Counters and Cupboards
As December has quickly approached, you might want to check if the utensils and foods on your counters and cupboards are winter ready. Remove anything you won't likely use in the winter months, making space for more mugs and drink ware that you will use this holiday season. Champagne flutes anyone?
Storage versatility and rustic farmhouse appeal are charmingly presented in our kitchen buffet.
