The Heart of Your Home –
Prepare Your Kitchen for the Festive Season
As we look forward to the most magical time of the year, why not ensure that your kitchen reflects the same magical feeling? At Prestons Kitchens, we believe that the kitchen is the heart of family gatherings, especially during the cherished Christmas dinner. Consider enhancing the experience by designing your kitchen to alleviate the holiday hustle. And, of course, don’t overlook the opportunity to ‘deck the halls’ with festive decorations for that extra touch of seasonal charm.
Invest in high-quality cooking appliances
Ensure your Christmas feast is nothing short of perfection by investing in high-quality cooking appliances. Take your eyes off the hob? Our Elica venting hob will automatically turn off if it overflows. Say goodbye to the hassle of boiling the kettle every few minutes with the Quooker hot tap (currently on offer), providing instant boiling water for your gravy’s, veggies, and beverages. And when all is done and dusted and boxing day rolls around, you could take the edge off the dreaded kitchen clean up and invest in a self cleaning oven. After all, who wants to spend the day scrubbing down the oven and wrestling with dirty dishes?
Keep the heat for your festive treats
Struggling to coordinate the timing of your Christmas delicacies? Incorporate a warming drawer into your kitchen design to keep everything at the ideal temperature. From the succulent turkey to the crispy pigs in blankets, your festive feast will be served piping hot and ready for enjoyment.
Create an ambient atmosphere
Transform your kitchen into a festive retreat by focusing on ambience. Swap the harsh overhead lighting for warm-tinted LED lights beneath cabinets, creating a cosy and calming atmosphere. Say farewell to the stark ‘big light’ and welcome a space that invites relaxation. To add an extra touch of warmth, scatter lamps and candles strategically around your kitchen, casting a soft glow that enhances the holiday spirit.
Decorate with merry touches
While practicality is essential, think about giving your kitchen a festive touch for Christmas. Enhance it with holiday decorations like wreaths, centrepieces, and garlands. Allow the scents of apple, cinnamon, and winter spice to create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Hang twinkling fairy lights around the kitchen to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that complements the season. The key is to create a multi-sensory space that not only looks festive but also feels and smells like the holiday season.
