How Can Your Kitchen Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution?

How Can Your Kitchen Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution?

A central principle of ours here at Kitchen Design Centre is that your kitchen should always be a reflection of you. By shaping it to match your personality, you can be sure of a space that’s always equipped to meet your needs. And there’s a positive flipside, too – by making adjustments to your kitchen (or even redesigning it completely), you can then influence your own way of living to develop and encourage good habits, which can make it amazingly helpful for meeting your New Year’s resolution. Not sure what we mean? Well…

A Kitchen For You To Spend More Time Together

Social spaces are something of a speciality for us here at Kitchen Design Centre. Kitchens like this family-focused, traditional kitchen amongst our case studies are perfect examples of how you can design your kitchen to encourage more quality time with your family. Kitchen islands are brilliant for this kind of thing, as they act as an ‘anchor’ around which you can gather to bond with each other over delicious food. An open-plan kitchen with an inbuilt dining space is also brilliant for blurring the boundaries between cooking and living areas, as you can see in the example above.

You can also design your kitchen to give yourself plenty of workspace, and consider small steps or stools for your child to reach counter height, so you can include them as you cook some mouth-watering meals. Baking is a popular choice for many children, for obvious reasons. If that sounds like it appeals, we’ve previously written a blog about how to design the best kitchen for baking – it might be one to consider!

A Kitchen That Encourages Healthy Eating

Dieting is a dirty word for lots of people. It’s no wonder; most of us associate it with restrictions and limits, rather than positive changes. But changing what you eat doesn’t have to be such a difficult process – after all, if you don’t have chocolate in the house, it’s far easier not to be tempted by it. This is where your kitchen can come into its own. When out shopping, skip out on the chocs and biscuits and replace them with fruits and berries. That way, when you get the urge to snack, you’re automatically more likely to go for the healthier option, without having to go to the effort of resisting temptation in the first place.

That extends to our meals, too. If you’ve only got decent, wholesome ingredients to hand, you’re more likely to make yourself decent, wholesome meals. Equip your kitchen with a grill for cooking meat, and a steamer for cooking vegetables. If they’re there, you’ll use them!

A Kitchen That Helps You Get Organised

Getting organised is another major New Year’s resolution for many of us, and once again our kitchen can come to the rescue. By streamlining your storage space, you can help cut out the ingredients and gadgets you don’t use or need when you’re cooking. It not only helps make your kitchen more efficient, but it can act as a good motivator to getting other rooms in the house sorted, as well!

If you’re thinking about a new kitchen for the new year, it might well be worth taking your New Year’s resolution into account as you’re designing it. Who knows – it might end up making all the difference! Here at Kitchen Design Centre, our talented kitchen designers are passionate about realising your vision of your dream kitchen right down to the very last detail. Feel free to visit any of our designer kitchen showrooms in Manchester, Blackburn or our brand new location in Barrowford, and we’ll be only too happy to discuss your plans!

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
