Cleaning mistakes that can make your kitchen boring

  • Lack of cleanliness: the first aspect that we’re going to consider is the frequency with which you clean your kitchen. You need to establish a regular (preferably daily) cleaning routine and another (twice monthly) deep clean routine.
  • Bad smells: very important! A kitchen that smells bad is unpleasant and leads to having a boring and unkempt atmosphere. Certain food preparations (such as stews and fish) can leave lingering bad odors, as well as residue and debris trapped in the siphon. Solve this by mixing water, vinegar, and two slices of lemon or orange, then heating it gently in a pan and letting the fragrant steam escape into the room.
  • Dirty kitchen cloths: useful and important, but it’s necessary to keep these clean. Use a separate cloth for cleaning each item, area, and appliance and store them in a discreet and specific space.
  • Rugs: using these accessories in your kitchen is a great idea, however, you must keep them impeccably clean. Sweep or vacuum them regularly and ensure they don’t collect dust and trap any dirt.

Kitchen decor: aspects you can improve

  • Plates in different styles: regardless of whether you display your tableware in a cabinet or not, avoid accumulating odd and unmatching pieces of china. This breaks the balance and encourages your kitchen to look disjointed, dull, and untidy.
  • Cutlery: avoid the temptation of leaving cutlery laying around, especially if you don’t have enough drawers or storage space. This common mistake evokes clutter and will make your kitchen look chaotic and rather boring. Why not take a cylindrical container and store your cutlery there? Doing this gives you a well-thought-out centerpiece that’s also practical.
  • Overfilled display cases: these items of furniture help us to maintain order and allow us to show off our special pieces with pride. However, when disorder takes over, the opposite effect occurs.
  • Countertop clutter: we’re all guilty of accumulating and storing clutter on the countertop, especially if we lack storage space. This includes appliances such as the toaster, the air fryer, the sandwich maker, and items such as glasses or cookware. This is a big mistake and makes your kitchen look dull, boring, and unattractive. Avoid this by carefully considering your storage and improving it where you can.
  • Refrigerators covered in magnets: avoid turning this appliance into an abstract painting that nobody understands! Create a specific and special space to keep your takeout menus, receipts, photos, and shopping lists, and don’t resort to covering your refrigerator in them. The cleaner it is, the better.
  • Avoid mismatched appliances: mixing white with steel and modern with old makes your kitchen look boring and unloved. It doesn’t create an established decorative line or style either.
