Create an Ever-Evolving Accent Wall. This is the first idea we ever had after discovering the joys of chalkboard paint. Simply create your chalkboard between a pair of windows, on a small wall, or even make a border near the ceiling. The options are limitless - the placement does not even have to be convenient, as long as you do not plan to make constant changes. Use chalk markers instead of regular pieces of chalk to create a stunning graphic mural right on your kitchen wall. Did we mention that we love chalkboard paint? It is a simple, effective way to give your kitchen some quirky character. Just make sure to invest in dust-free chalk (teachers swear by it) to keep the dust off your food and dishes - after all, the kitchen chalkboard is all about functionality and convenience.
Even if you happen to be short of space, try to keep surfaces clean and free of clutter. Not having enough space to move when you are doing a range of tasks or preparing food, can be a recipe for disaster. Keep areas neat and tidy, keeping everything you need close at hand. It is easy for the workspace to become greasy and dirty and this can lead to issues with bacteria so keeping on top of cleanliness across all areas, i.e. worktops, hob and oven surfaces, floor and wall coverings is all part of good housekeeping, whilst protecting the health of your friends and family.
Expeditiously cleaning the kitchen by proceeding in steps. This guide is here as help for steps that may be used frequently. Try these simple steps and bring your kitchen's cleanness from ordinary to extraordinary. Also here on this page I will let you know what I use as good kitchen cleaning products. For the first step is to dust the room down from the ceiling down using a lamb's wool duster as was told on our BATHROOM page. Make sure to get all light fixtures, top of doors, door hardware and windows this includes curtains. There are several things you can do to assist you in making the cleaning process easier. As the absolute second step, is to use a couple of drops of Simple Green in a 2 gallon bucket of warm water and use a microfiber cloth to do the kitchen hood cleaning. Please keep in mind if your doing commercial kitchen cleaning that there might be more then just one hood to clean.
To Distress Or Not To Distress? When it comes to installing stone kitchen counter tops, Granite tends to be the material of choice because it is so durable. Marble is much more likely to chip and break and it is more at risk form the day to day kitchen accidents like broken glasses and spilled food or wine. Granite is much more able to withstand this type of ongoing punishment and is far less likely to fall victim to staining like Marble is. Some people actually see this as positive thing in relation to marble. They like the aesthetic effect of a little bit of wear and tear on their counter tops to give a slightly vintage look to them, in such the same way as people often do with intentionally distressed clothing. Marble is quite often likened to a fine wine which gets better as it matures. One of the main benefits of Marble is that it is completely waterproof and will not suffer damage from steam or splashes from washing dishes. However, to really prolong its life the stone does need to be sealed by a professional. This needs to been repeated every so often to maintain the seal. The manufacturer should be able to offer advice about how often this needs to be carried out.
