Kitchen is a place which feeds your family and hence it assumes the status of great importance as far as keeping it neat is concerned. It is essential you keep your kitchen neat to maintain a happy and relaxed state of mind while cooking. Unwashed dishes, spilled food, unclean kitchen slab mars the atmosphere of your kitchen. A clean and neat kitchen gives you the cheerful mindset to cook good food for your family and make them feel good. You should not think that kitchen is just a place for cooking and does not need any special attention.
Kitchen sink is the main jarring aspect in many houses with unwashed dishes overflowing. You should make it a habit to wash the dishes as soon as breakfast, lunch and dinner are over. If you do that you will find your kitchen looking good always. It will also be free from bad smell that emanates from unwashed dishes. As soon as you finish cooking clean the range with a wet soapy cloth, followed by cleaning with a dry cloth. When you do that daily you will find your stove-top looking as good as new always.The kitchen slab also should be cleaned with soap suds daily, so that no oily scab forms. The tiles over your cooking range should be given attention as it easily becomes sticky with oil and sports a dirty look which will mar the cleanliness of your kitchen.

Always have a covered dustbin which should be cleaned daily. As soon as you cut the vegetables, the peeled skin and other residue should be thrown into the dustbin. The remaining and unwanted food should be covered in a polythene cover and then put in the dustbin. This will prevent the dustbin from the stink of spoiled food.
The cooked food should be neatly covered and kept in the shelf. Do not over crowd your kitchen top with utensil as is the wont in many houses. My practice is to keep the cooked food in a covered shelf. The things in my kitchen slab was my cooking range and a brass vase containing plastic flowers and nothing else. My friends used to overwhelm me with appreciation of how neat and organized my kitchen looked.
Another thing you can do to make your kitchen beautiful is to divide your kitchen into two parts. The main area is your kitchen with a sink and a good kitchen slab. There are a lot of budget modular kitchen shelves available and you can choose the color according to the color of your kitchen tiles. My choice is always the wood finish which will give a rich look to your kitchen. Choose your kitchen tiles very carefully. Don’t go in for jarring colors as it will give a gaudy look.
The second part of your kitchen can be your utility room where you can keep your dishwasher, your blender and wet grinder. You can have an ordinary sink to wash the dishes. You can use the kitchen sink just for washing the vegetables and the non oily dishes. This is how I planned my kitchen and was well satisfied as my kitchen always looked neat.
Wipe the containers containing your groceries at least once a week and throw out the unwanted things. Wipe the door of your shelf with soft soapy suds and wipe them again with a dry soft cloth. Clean the door knobs. You should completely clean your kitchen at least once a month and be ruthless in discarding unwanted things in your kitchen.
Now an apt flower vase with matching flowers and matching curtains will complete the picture of beauty of your kitchen. I can hear murmurs that with such hectic work schedule it will be difficult to find time to do such finicky things. When you have the interest you will find it very easy and enjoyable to keep your place of reign neat and beautiful.
