Often times, we do a lot of activities in the kitchen starting from washing eating and drinking utensils, cleaning vegetables, cooking, to putting various other kitchen furniture. The number of storage containers placed, but sometimes not in accordance with the storage space. Therefore, many scattered utensils and containers are accompanied by the cooking waste. Why not try this?
Quote from Fabfit research, which invo lving 98 of female participants who were left to sit alone in a messy kitchen with newspapers and bill papers on the table, dirty dishes in the sink, and a ringing phone had amazing results. Written and published in Environment & Behavior Journal, Lenny Vartanian as the author says that within ten minutes the participants ate twice as much cake as the other participants who sat in the kitchen with the opposite condition. That is, the condition of a messy kitchen can send signals to the brain and say that everything in your life has an irregular condition. As a result, eating patterns get worse because the brain will think that eating irregular snacks is a natural thing.
Don’t worry. To get a better and cleaner kitchen, we can start trying to do the following steps:
- Create an Additional Storage Room
To outsmart more storage containers than the available space, another additional storage space must be made by utilizing the remaining free space in the kitchen decoration by doing Do It Yourself (DIY) tricks. For example, empty space under the sink, door or drawer of the kitchen cabinet, kitchen wall, or even some special baskets. Not only makes it more practical, arrangements like this are also very effective for maximizing existing decorations without having to build a new kitchen.
- Set the Kitchen Equipment in Accordance with its Function
In addition to preparing some additional storage space, arranging kitchen equipment according to its function is another important thing. Arrange the kitchen utensils starting from the most used ones, to those that are only used occasionally. You can also arrange some patterns to stack or line according to your taste. Don’t forget, also make sure the size of each tool does not stack together so that it will make you difficult to find when it is in really needed. Put each equipment neatly so it comes more comfortable to look at and neater.
- Always Clean Sink After Use
When using the sink, there is usually a lot of left water in the end area or around the kitchen table adjacent to the sink itself. If we are not diligent in cleaning, the kitchen will look muddy and unhygienic for cooking activities. Spilled water can also be dangerous when stepping so it makes us easy to slip. So, always make sure the sink area is in dry and there are no unwashed food containers to avoid unpleasant odors. Also use a kanebo or dry cloth and an antiseptic cleaning liquid that is friendly to decoration materials so that germs are not left on the kitchen table or sink surface.
- Routinely Cleaning Kitchen Decorations
Not only the sink, the knick-knacks and other kitchen decorations must also be diligently cleaned. In order to cook more comfortably, try to always clean all the kitchen utensils and accessories every time you finish using the kitchen regularly or at least once a week. Do not leave dust, cobwebs or stains due to the less clean washing process left behind to damage its beauty. Clean every corner and space in the decoration to avoid the dirt left behind longer. Make sure the entire kitchen cabinet door is closed so that no animals enter and carry the seeds of the disease.
- Always Provide Plastic Trash Can
Trash can is one of the important elements that must always be in the kitchen. Use rubbish that has been covered with different plastics to remove wet or organic waste, and dry garbage or food wrappers. In addition to making it easier for the decomposition process, grouping like this is important to do to minimize the accumulation of garbage at home and invite lots of flies or other insects. Always remove the trash when it’s full and immediately replace it with new plastic trash.
- Apply Bright Color Wall Paint
Talking about home decor and kitchen caring certainly will not be separated from the choice of wall colors that match the mood of the owner of the house or the color of other decorations in the house. Choosing the right color of the wall will certainly add a sweet and aesthetic impression that can explain the size of a smaller room to be wider, or vice versa. Bright colors like white, broken white, sky blue and others can make the room look more clean and unsightly. In addition, color also has a role in determining one’s mood. So, not only the decoration side and the use of space that must be considered, but also the choice of the color of the walls of the room to make it more optimal and beautiful.
