Guest post- Does Your Kitchen Know It Is Spring?

The sun is shining, we have hidden our coats and gloves at the back of our wardrobes and bright blue skies have replaced the somber grey days. We are fully aware that spring has made its long-awaited arrival, but can the same be said of your home?

As a room that is used multiple times on a daily basis, where better place to start with a spring makeover than your kitchen?

Innovative ways to spring clean your kitchen

Ensure your kitchen emulates this light and bright season by cleaning everything until it sparkles. Start with the big things that are used on an everyday basis such as washing machines to enjoy the impact almost immediately. From big appliances to wall tiles; from the ceilings to the floors, give everything a thorough scrub down.

If you are on a bit of a budget there are some creative ways to get your kitchen sparkling using the very basics, for example:
To de-scale a kettle, cut a lemon into large chunks and place inside, then fill the kettle with water, leave to boil, and leave the resulting mixture to stand overnight. Discard the next day and rinse thoroughly – then treat yourself to a nice cup of tea.

For a gleaming glass oven door, create a thick paste using bicarbonate of soda and a few drops of water. Dig out some rubber gloves, use a cloth to rub the paste on the inside of the door, leave for 15 minutes then clean off grime with ease!

Bright and beautiful kitchen appliances

Spring cleaning your kitchen is a great start when revamping it in time for the warmer months. Sparkling white surfaces and twinkling chrome appliances not only make for a smart, hygienic kitchen but also have a welcoming aesthetic effect. Clean surfaces will do a far better job at bouncing all that extra daylight around the room, giving it a lift and making it feel more airy and spacious.

Sometimes even the most thorough of cleaning jobs would not restore an item to its former glory, and it is times like these when looking for appliances online is the only option. Take your laptop into the garden, settle down in the sun and immerse yourself in the lively world of kitchen décor. From colorful kettles to bright blenders, there are plenty of ways to add a summery splash of color to your kitchen.
