20+ Superb Kitchen Remodel Ideas With Runner Carpet


Home may be where the heart is, but as the “Heart of Your Home” the kitchen provides more than a functional space for cooking. It’s a gathering place for family and friends. A 24 hour snack stop. A trading post of ideas, recipes, gossip, even a cup of sugar now and then.

Every once in awhile, an extended office space or school study hall (Homework or School Projects). Wishes or Worries, Delights or Dilemmas, chances are all were discussed at one time or another in the Kitchen. For all these reasons, Kitchens have become the center of our homes.


So let’s get started. A clean heart is a healthy heart. Same with your Kitchen. Clear out the clutter. Decide on what is essential and used on a regular basis, everything else get rid of. This is a very hard step for some. Emotions, memories and ideas of what might be needed often get in the way. (Do you really need 5 pancake flippers? You only have 2 hands) For the things that just can’t be parted with, pack them up out of the kitchen until they find a reason to return. De-cluttering and keeping everything in it’s place is time and energy consuming at first, but will become a form of therapy.

Next, nothing feels better than a breath of fresh air. OK, during the winter in cold areas, not always a good idea for open windows.(especially at -15 or -20) Indoor plants bring the outdoors in. A small container garden with aromatic herbs brings the scents of outdoors in. Hanging plants from the ceiling or on shelves by windows will soften the look of your kitchen. Don’t forget, plants naturally clean the air for us.
