As we celebrate this year's Earth Day we are reminded of how important it is to think green when designing your new kitchen. There are many aspects to Kitchen design that can be considered when trying to "do better" and in this post we are going to focus on three main areas: reuse, recycle and reduce! Click "read more" to learn more about what each of these mean.
Handleless kitchen cabinets are one of the biggest trends for 2021 for more pared-back, streamlined look. It's all about simplicity and a focus on cabinetry details.
This idea has been around for a very long time but it is starting to take on more interest by the North American design community and homeowners alike as people try to incorporate less clutter in the look of their home. Thinking of Kitchen design in terms of Wellness is extremely important and reducing visual clutter is a big aspect to consider. In this post we will talk about the top 3 ways that you can incorporate this look into your new kitchen. We will also go over some of the advantages and disadvantages to consider before choosing this design aesthetic for your home.
Welcome back (or welcome for the first time). Last week, we talked about 5 Wellness tips that you can incorporate into your Kitchen design. If you didn't check that out yet, you can find it here. At the beginning of that post, I posed a challenge to you. If you tried it we would love to hear if you saw any changes in your overall wellness, mood or anxiety level?
Today we are going to expand on the topic of "Wellness In Your Kitchen" and share with you five more tips! A lot of us are spending more time inside our homes these days especially inside our kitchens. As we are trying to focus on creating healthy lifestyles with our food choices, it makes sense that your kitchen design should also be supporting these lifestyle changes. Our focus on meal-prepping and cleaning/eating more veggies, as well as finding ways of preventing the spread of germs within our homes, is becoming more prevalent. So, whether you’re looking to renovate your entire kitchen this Fall or just upgrade parts of your space, consider these five tips to help support your healthy lifestyle.
How do you feel when you are in your Kitchen? Do you feel calm, relaxed and motivated? Or do you feel anxious, frustrated and maybe even depressed? The way our environment is designed (and maintained) directly effects our well-being, whether we realize it or not.
Before we get into this article I have a challenge for you. Try this experiment, if you feel anxious when you wake up or go-to bed, look around your bedroom and see if there is any clutter. If there is, take the time to clean it all up. Put the clothes away, dust off the dressers, make your bed (yes, even if you’re just about to lay in it for the night) and see how you feel. More importantly, see how you feel when you wake up to that uncluttered space. There is a ton of research that shows that our outer environment directly effects our inner wellness. Over stimulation is a huge factor in the growing numbers of people with anxiety and stress. Although a clean bedroom or a clean Kitchen won’t cure everything it will certainly help improve your personal wellness!
