It’s kind of hard to decorate the kitchen, but there are ways that you can make your kitchen look and feel more beautiful and make it reflect your style, and I’m, going to show you a couple of tips that are Pretty quick and inexpensive and a quick thank you to LG for sponsoring today’s, video before we get started.
If you guys have not thumbs up this video, please do so and if you haven’t joined our subscribed fans be sure to hit subscribe because we love new subs. Okay, question of the video is: what was the last meal you ate, or it could just be like a snack for me.
I just had gushers not proud of it, but it happened. Let’s, get started, [ Music ] step number one is clean. Your kitchen, if you guys watch any of my videos, you know I usually start off with this point, because it is amazing what cleaning up your space can actually do.
So, a couple of tips on how to do that. Well, obviously, spray down your counters. I think counters they cover a lot of surface area in your space, so wipe those bad boys down. Do your dishes. Whenever you’re done with a dish, it’s, ideal to never leave a dish in the sink and always put it in the dishwasher.
That’s. Gon na, be your easiest bet. If you don & # 39, t have a dishwasher wash it by hand. This leads me to talking about dishwashers. Did you see how I did that in these unique times it is kind of more important now than ever to keep things really well sanitized, which is one of the things I love the best about my new LG dishwasher, because it has true steam technology.
Can we talk about the buttons really quickly, because I used to have a dishwasher that all the buttons are on the outside? No more accidentally? Turning out my dishwasher, it’s, an exact this household.
You know you’re, an adult when this kind of stuff gets. You excited. Can I just say okay, so true steam? Is this awesome feature it’s really tough on food, but very gentle on your dishware and all of your delicate things in your dishwasher and it actually is steam that’s released and it sanitizes your dishes.
It releases one blast of steam that gets the food off and, in the second blast of steam, sanitizes your dishes and helps them become virtually spotless LG. True steam dishwashers are certified by NSF and achieve a minimum of 99.
999 reduction of bacteria when operated on the steam cycle. So one of my favorite things about this dishwasher is the EZ rack plus. I love it because if I have long stem wine glasses, I can push this rack lower to make it a little bit more spacious for the wine glasses.
I can also make it a little bit higher if I have bigger pots and pans, so I can actually fit everything in this dishwasher, no matter what I need, instead of having to play Tetris and fitting everything in and turning it on its side, it actually will Fit easily nicely and no dishes get left behind.
It also is a really smooth, glide rail, so when you push it in it almost like catches and pulls it in for you, I really really really love when you open the dishwasher, it has its own light system that turns on it’s, like A showroom you open up the dishwasher and it’s like oh and last but not least, it has print proof finish, which honest is really great.
Stainless steel is beautiful, but sometimes you can get your paw prints all over it. Your kids, your babies, your dogs, but this stainless steel finish really resists smudges and you can clean it just with a simple dry cloth.
If you guys want to find out more about LG dishwashers with the true steam feature, I will link everything below you. Guys can check it out and get one for yourself. Okay, back to our video [ Music ] number, two, my beautiful countertops.
That is now I talk about this a lot and there’s, a reason for us. We had blue dip and dot countertops. They were awful, we’re. Renting we didn’t want to do anything permanent. So I found this great marble contact paper and I was a little bit skeptical if it was going to work in a kitchen, because if you cut on the counter and there’s, water and all that I can say it’s.
Been about it a little bit over a year, this stuff is on as good as it was when I first put it on when we go to take it off it’s, not gonna leave any sticky residue. It’s. Gon na come off perfectly so it’s, a great temporary option and it just makes the whole space just like completely transformed like it’s.
The number one thing that will make your kitchen look absolutely 100 % different and I highly highly highly recommend it. I got it on Amazon. I will link it below for you, one of the things that I also would recommend.
If you guys saw the kitchen reveal video, I did in my friend’s house a couple of years ago we covered up her backsplash and actually made it look like subway tile with these awesome, adhesive subway tile pieces of almost like a jigsaw puzzle And it looks amazing for us, we had white square tiles with these beautiful bouquets, which are a little tacky, but I look the other way, but for the most part it’s white, so it’s, nice and clean.
So we didn’t, do it on ours, but you can 100 % cover up your backsplash. If it also is not very cute, you’re gonna need a lot, but if you have a couple hundred bucks, it will make a huge difference in your kitchen, and I just can’t say enough.
Good things about the contact paper in the kitchen for a temporary solution. It’s, just gonna make it look so good, so try it [ Music, ], [ Applause, ] number, three display beautiful accessories that are also functional.
Okay. The first thing is most obvious: is your sponges this one we actually have to like bleach the kitchen sink and clean it out, so I do use the traditional ones for that, but for my everyday dishes, this one is neutral.
It’s organic. I think it’s good for the environment. Also things like this: this is a vegetable brush and this is a brush for your dishes, but look how cute and it hang. I’m gonna link. Some of these things below I get most of stuff on Amazon and it’s, not that much more expensive than the stuff that you would find at a grocer.
Also things like salt and pepper and keep these out. They are visible, but they’re very clean and they just look really nice and I use them every single day and look at this one of our viewers who’s now become a great friend.
Her name is Carrie and we actually got to visit her in North Carolina a couple of months ago. It was kind of in between North Carolina and South Carolina wasn’t it. She was in the Carolinas and we actually got to visit her.
Her father makes these amazing wood carved really anything. I think – and they sent us this as a gift, but it’s. A salt and pepper thing. Would you guys ever want to buy a can with, and so on, pepper holder? I wish another really easy thing to make beautiful in your kitchen.
I found this beautiful bottle at HomeGoods and I just refill it with soap, because I love the outside of the bottle and then obviously you can decorate with things like cheese boards. I have a beautiful white bottle of olive oil and I also display a cookbook that I’m, loving and some recipes that I like, and it just makes the kitchen feel complete, feel succinct and organized.
I also use these really great pencil holders there’s, one that goes on one side. One goes on the other and I just split them up and put them on these shelves, and I actually don’t use them for anything.
I totally could, but I just like the way they look. They add some color and then I just decorate with my onions and my shallots and my garlic, because I actually use those all the time and they’re easy to grab.
And I actually like the color palette that they give me. The other thing that you guys can decorate with is obviously wall art. I really love that the art piece that we selected for that wall was a great like transition into the next room, because I used colors that are in the next room, brought them into this room.
That way, when you’re walking through you kind of like get prepared for what you’re gonna see, I feel like every kitchen should have some form of a calendar. I found this adorable calendar. I’ll link.
It below, but it’s, just really clean and simple. Let’s. Move on to the, therefore, by 3.45 we got a lot of stuff to do. We better get going. Number four. Add a runner rug. I just got this rug. A few months ago it matches my shallots and onions hey.
If you’re gonna be in the frame you can’t, be itching your bet. We will number one of doing YouTube videos he didn’t know she’s, just not cut out for this. You could do gone, but pink world. I guess it goes with my shallots and my onions, which I love and it kind of sets a color palette.
It pulls in my floors that are kind of like a rusty maple color brings life to the kitchen, and here is something I recommend. If you’re doing a runner instead of a light kitchen mat, you’re standing here.
All the time you’re cooking that you’re chopping. You’re, washing dishes get yourself a non-slip mat pad underneath, and it gives you some really great cushion, and it really does provide a lot of comfort for your feet.
If you’re barefoot and cut it down, you can put two of them under there. Whatever you need, I’m gonna make it comfy. Last but not least, number five always bring some plants into your kitchen, so I actually have one that is a faux plant and one that is a real plant.
The good news is about the second plant, the one that’s alive. It doesn’t need a lot of water because it’s kind of like succulent. I have this guy in one corner and this guy in another corner. You can tell if you look at my rug and you look at the plants.
I brought the color palette in sometimes you can also do like basil plant or something that’s actually edible, and I found this at Trader Joe’s, so you know it kind of fits with my kitchen and food grocery theme.
