How did your kitchen cope with Christmas?

POSTED ON 2nd January 2023

Christmas is often the greatest test for a kitchen that’s no longer fit for purpose

You did it; Christmas is pretty much done. All the hosting, cooking, and general feasting are now complete and you did yourself proud. However, how did your kitchen measure up?

This time of year is peak time for demand on your kitchen with the big dinners to try and find oven space for, having the room to get everyone around the table, or even finding yourself alone cooking because there’s no social space in the kitchen for people to keep you company.

While this does not represent typical usage, the festive period can certainly highlight the areas where your kitchen is lacking. Maybe the oven isn’t big enough, perhaps you’re sick of bending down to it to take food out, maybe the insufficient counter space saw you struggling with food preparation, or maybe the fridge just couldn’t cope with the volume of food and you had to leave the booze on the back step?

Could now be the right time to think about a new kitchen?

You are probably unlikely to face the same challenges for much of the rest of the year, but it could have got you thinking about how lovely it would be to have a kitchen that just works? Imagine having all the space that you need, a kitchen that is designed well so the cooking process is efficient and easy, ovens at height to save your back, room for people to gather around and help out or chat to you while you cook, and then dining space for you to all eat together.

It all depends on the space you have, of course, but clever design means that many items in this wish list are completely achievable and could offer you a kitchen that is a dream to cook, gather, and eat in all year round – including Christmas. How wonderful would that be?
