There’s no denying that the room that receives the most interior design and decor attention is the Living Room. With all the trends that come through each year, it’s very easy to get into a routine of updating this room in particular almost every season. Consequently it is very rare for the Kitchen to be at the top of the interior design list. Keeping a healthy lifestyle however, begins in the kitchen which makes it an essential part of your home and deserves a lot of attention.

Let’s take a look at the four key areas for improvement in the kitchen that can help you stick to a healthier lifestyle…

Adding plants to your home has not only been proven to improve the quality of air, but also brings some much needed greenery to your decor. Green is commonly associated by the countryside and large open spaces so instantly improves mood.

In your kitchen, plants can double up as a key part to your cooking ritual. Adding fresh herbs to your meals taste a lot better than some dried-supermarket bought ones. They also give off the most incredible smell which adds some key freshness to your kitchen.

It is difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when your home environment is unorganised or messy. Upgrading your kitchen to having more smart storage solutions helps enormously with this. One of the most common annoyance most homeowners have is the lack of storage in their kitchens. This leads to ingredients, utensils and even food left around on the work surface.

Choosing and ultimately investing in effective storage cabinets that are also elegant and in keeping with your home can be really tricky. I always recommend to clients and friends to shop around for the best service and go with the company / shop whom will help you find the right solution for you and the space you have available. If you decide to look for a more tailored and customised solution, Mccormack Joinery are specialist made-to-measure cabinetry makers whom can help you organise your kitchen better.

Larder or pantry cupboards are the ultimate space savers!

Less is Always More


I don’t know about you, but over the years I seem to accumulate a whole cupboard full of Tupperware. Even a drawer full of unused cutlery or cupboards with discarded pots and pans… The list goes on! It is fair to say (as with anything) less is always more and regular spring cleans of belongings is paramount to ensuring you don’t end up accumulating too many unused items.

You can actually make do with very little – do you really need all 10 cooking / preparation knives? Probably not. You are more likely to stick with your healthy lifestyle choices if you only have the right cooking utensils that you regularly use.

For most rooms throughout the home, floral arrangements become the main finishing touch to add some colour. In the kitchen however, one of the ways we can do this is introducing stylish fruit bowls. Not only is a bowl of fruit aesthetically pleasing to the eye, it encourages you to stay focused and on track with your health goals. Ceramic bowls generally keep fruit fresher for longer. And remember – less is more – so don’t over fill the bowl!

It is very easy for new homeowners to keep and maintain their Magnolia walls and colour schemes, but adding colours to any room create a lively and exciting space. I will cover the key modern colour schemes of the year in my next post – so stay tuned! For healthy and fresh colour schemes in the kitchen, I would always recommend a mixture of earthy greens and white, or grey and plum.

Some of my favourite fruit bowls to add that stylish touch to any kitchen are …

LSA International, Pleat Footed Bowl dia:28.5cm. £60
LSA International, Utility Bowl and Ash Lid, Dia:34cm. Was £70, NOW £49
