A kitchen mini makeover

Wednesday, 12th December, 2018 4:52pm

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home and it couldn’t be truer when it comes to Christmas.

So much happens in the kitchen at Christmas from entertaining to cooking and from mulled wine making to tea brewing.

With this in mind, now is the time to give the kitchen a mini makeover.

Cleaning is the first step. Start from the top and work your way down.

Dust the top of the presses and clean the doors of the presses too – don’t forget the handles!

Take everything off the table worktop like the fruit bowl, kettle and toaster and give them a clean. Then give the table and counter a good cleaning with a suitable disinfectant.

Next is the job we all hate – tackling the kitchen bin. Arm yourself with hot water and disinfectant and use these weapons to battle through it.

Our friend the fridge also needs to be cleaned out. Throw out anything that smells bad or that’s gone passed its use by date.

Then all that’s left to do is sweep and clean the floor.

Now comes the fun part, adding an extra sparkle to it this festive season. How about some new wine glasses or festive mugs? A new cake stand for all those little treats is always in fashion at this time of year.

There might even be room for a festive smelling candle, cinnamon is a lovely fragrance at Christmas.

After that, add some Christmas decorations and it’ll feel like a new kitchen.

If you’re looking to add some big ticket items to the kitchen, a new table or an armchair is the way to go!
