The New Year is here, the holidays are over, and it is time for a fresh start — not just for yourself, but for your home as well! I like to use this time of year to really clean out my home, de-clutter and make it function at its best. We are all running crazy and are too busy, so we need things in our home to be as efficient as possible. The kitchen is a perfect place to jump start your organizing. Today I am adding functionality and organization to the pantry. Even if you do not have a full pantry, these tips will still help you make the most of whatever kitchen storage space you have and bring organization to a whole new level. If you are like me, this is what your pantry looks like.
As we mentioned previously, details are important. So add a retro clock to the wall, an antique food scale on the counter top and a charming timer situated on the stove and oven. Even if you want to nix color but still create a retro kitchen black and white can get the job done for you, so don't worry. Use these classic neutrals as the foundation of your space. Breakfast tile countertop bars are a must as they evoke that diner style we all love but also give you the opportunity to create a place to decorate and add your own unique touches as well. Mint green is another go-to color when exploring retro kitchen style. From backsplash to the cabinets, this color works both as accent and as foundation so don’t be afraid to play around with it a bit. Add some throwback signage to the space too! Over the stove, breakfast bar or even creating a gallery wall behind the kitchen table. This too is a way to bring in your own personality.
After mixing the cleaner according to directions, allow it to sit on the stone for the recommended amount of time, wash with a sponge or soft bristle brush, mop up the water and then dry the surface. Lastly, polish or buff the surface. If you get a stain on your granite countertop, baking soda may be all you need. The Maid Brigade suggests that you make a paste of baking soda and water for oil-based stains or baking soda and hydrogen peroxide for water-based stains. Apply the paste on the stain and allow it to sit for several hours, covered. Then, wipe up the paste, and clean the area with a warm cloth and a dish soap.
