When it comes to fire safety in the kitchen, you should pay attention to what you are doing. Kitchens burn down because people sometimes forget about shutting off the stove, the microwave, or oven. Once the oil gets hotter, it starts to smoke, then bursts into a fiery blaze which can be impossible to extinguish alone. For small fires, you can certainly do something about it by getting fire extinguishers. They are truly valuable when combustion unexpectedly occurs.Also, watch carefully your electrical wires. Cord snags can pose problems and may get someone electrocuted. Never plug or unplug kitchen equipment and appliances especially if your hands are damp. You do not want to become a kitchen casualty just because you have forgotten that cardinal rule.
Decorating the kitchen can be an expensive proposition, but if you are on a budget, look around you to see what you may have in your home, that you can use to brighten up your kitchen. Do you have some nice dishes tucked away in cabinets that you could display on a counter top? Plate racks are inexpensive and plates look good standing in strategic places on the counter. You can even look in second hand stores for some cheap plates with a design that may go with your kitchen colors or decor, and all it will cost you is a couple of dollars. How about decorating the kitchen with some woven baskets you may have around your home. These look great if you are trying to create a rustic type of atmosphere in your kitchen. Having them placed along the top of your cabinets and perhaps a couple on your counter tops holding some fruit can add that rustic charm. I have even seen baskets used as a window valance and they looked really effective.
