Kitchen / July 2, 2018 /
Between prep work, cooking and dishes, you spend the bulk of your kitchen time on your feet. No matter you are young , standing for prolonged periods of time does not do your feet, knees or back any favors.Try keeping a pair of well cushioned, supportive sneakers on hand to wear while working. If you have the space, stash them under the sink. With a few bucks and a few minutes, you can even rig a spot for them on the back of the cabinet door using removable hooks and a section of an over the door shoe organizer.
While kitchen islands are a feature you will find in many kitchens, the idea of utilizing them as a central gathering point is what homeowners are remodeling for. We have known for a while now that dining rooms were on the out. But, now I am seeing a lot of people forgoing traditional seating and incorporating most or all of their seating at an island or a peninsula. People entertain, and families are more on the go, so they want flexible seating near the kitchen. If you have a kitchen island, getting on board with this trend will be easy for you. Create some seating arrangements and a centerpiece to make it a gathering point for all.
