Many hours are spent in the kitchen, either preparing meals, cooking, making pack lunches, laundry or entertaining. All the emotions can be dealt with too, from being stressed from the school rush, to feeling a sense of accomplishment over cooking a great, well-balanced meal.

Kitchens are important for our everyday lives which we can sometimes take for granted. So why are kitchens so important? We’re going to explore some of the reasons...

Preparing food

We’ll start with the obvious reason why kitchens are an important part of your home and that is to prepare your food, because it’s not like you can do that in your bathroom, right!? Everybody has to eat to survive on this planet and the kitchen is a place to store, prepare and cook your food. According to research, we spend 4 years and 6 months eating! Whilst this may not always be food that you’ve prepared yourself, we would hope that a lot of the time it is!

Entertaining

Entertaining normally happens in the kitchen and kitchen/living area if you’ve opened your living spaces up. It’s where you pour your friends a glass of wine whilst they tell you about their week, and watch you slave over their dinner asking whether you’d like any help but not really meaning it… When you’re the host, you’re normally in the kitchen so why not bring the party into the kitchen!?

Storage

Because where else would you put your groceries!? Nowadays you can purchase so many different styles of kitchen fittings to best suit your needs, from taps that turn on boiling water so you no longer need a kettle, to satisfying storage for your many tins of food.

Learning

According to research, more than half of Australians are unhappy with their weight with many wanting to cook at home more. With that, the kitchen aids in experimenting with cooking, and not just for yourself but with the whole family too. When your children see you cooking, they’re more likely to want to learn too and therefore lead healthier lives. What’s more, learning and experimenting gives you a sense of accomplishment and lifts your mood. The kitchen can be your mood booster!

 

It goes without saying that the kitchen is a very important part of the home, and having explored that a bit more there’s so many more reasons as to why that is. The kitchen is the hub of the home and therefore should be designed to the standard you would expect.
