Dressing your kitchen for Healthy Living


Have I shown you my yellow migraine-inducing kitchen recently? You know the one, 50's Hygena cupboards, painted in yellow gloss, permanently sticky lino on the floor, with next to no worktop space. Yep, that's the one. 

Since participating in the Live Lagom project with Ikea last year, I decided that it was time to do something about my kitchen. What that was, I wasn't sure, but something needed to be done. And so, over the past couple of months, I've sanded and painted the cupboards, painted the walls and we stripped the lino back to reveal a tiled floor. Some of our Lagom purchases, including a sturdy runner for the (freezing) floor, and a lovely blind have perked the space up. I've cleared all but essentials away from the worktops, and have curtained off the microwave and recycling bins. Unlike the kitchen I had my eye on from Ikea, nothing has cost a fortune, and despite not functioning any differently, despite not being completely finished, the kitchen looks so much better. There's still work to do, the doors need new handles, I need some storage boxes for on top of the cupboards where I keep all my baking equipment and tupperware and I want to do something about the tiles. which are still ghastly.


I was asked to have a look at the following video which is about how your kitchen can help you to make better choices in your diet. Sadly, we just don't have space in the kitchen for a fruit bowl, much less a table, but we do have both on view and used heavily in our lounge. Since having Harry, sitting up to the table for meals has become much more important to both M and I.



I love the idea of your fridge sending you a selfie, but that technology hasn't reached the wilds of North London yet. Instead I have a very low-tech magnetic notepad on our fridge which you write on, every time you finish anything in the fridge, be that milk, bacon or wine!
