Our top tips for getting your kitchen Christmas ready

It is no secret that this year has not been what people hoped for at the start of a new decade. Nevertheless, this Christmas period should be celebrated, like no other! Kitchens are widely renowned for being the heart of the home, and over Christmas is a crucial room in every home that allows everyone to come together and share food and drink, even if it's just your immediate household. In this blog, we discuss our top tips for helping ensure your kitchen is ready for this year's extra special festivities.


Our first top tip for getting your kitchen Christmas ready is preparation – make sure you are fully prepared for the organised chaos that Christmas brings. Here are our five key preparation notes: 

  • Make sure to test all kitchen appliances and ensure they are working well, replacing or repairing any appliances that many underperform or cause issues on the big day!
  • Check all cutlery and plates – ensures you have enough and are all in perfect condition for the special event! 
  • Make a list and consider ALL the Christmas essentials, for example, batteries, foil, even scissors for that pesky packaging.
  • Spring clean – make sure the whole kitchen is clean including, the dishwasher and oven are ready for their most intense day of the year! 
  • Don’t leave things till the last minute – make sure all basics for Christmas Day are purchased days in advance to avoid completely missing out or a Christmas Eve dash!

Festive Kitchens 

Kitchens are undoubtedly put through their paces at Christmas, so why should they miss out on the festive treatment? Our second top tip is to pull the festive spirit into the kitchen. In larger kitchens, a Christmas tree can flawlessly set the scene and you can even add edible treats for a kitchen twist! In all kitchens, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere is crucial for keeping the festive spirit alive, from winter scented candles and setting the scene with timeless Christmas song classics.

Kitchen layout 

Is your kitchen layout as practical and efficient as it should be? During the festive period, your kitchen will be exposed to lots of use so, making sure there is plenty of space and seating is crucial. Clever storage solutions can save lots of time and space in kitchens as well as making the area neater, more practical, and extra organised, for example, kitchen island shelving and pantries. In many cases, kitchen islands are the gift that keeps on giving and are often a predominant feature in modern kitchen design. From providing extra workspace to prepare Christmas dinner to offering up appetisers, kitchen islands can help your kitchen form the social hub of the home as well as providing extra seating.
