What are the best countertops for a healthy kitchen? I get asked this question all the time. And I had to ask myself this question when I started planning my own kitchen renovation. I did a TON of research to get this question answered. And what I found is that there is no such thing as a perfect countertop.
If you have been sucked in by beautiful Pinterest kitchens with sleek, curated open shelving, then you and I are in the same boat. Open shelving can turn a dark, cramped kitchen into a space full of life and personality. It can also help make your kitchen healthier which is why open shelving is a perfect fit for wellness kitchens.
I know that healthy eating can sometimes be a challenge, especially as a busy parent. It can be so frustrating to come home after a long day and feel the dread of hiding away in the kitchen to prepare a healthy meal for your family. I have certainly been there. And I know that this dread and frustration is often alleviated by eating quick, unhealthy meals instead.
Home building, renovations and wellness. What could they possibly have in common? It turns out, A LOT. Your house has a HUGE impact on your health and well-being. Everything from the materials you choose to build your house with, to the way you lay out your rooms, to the placement of your windows, and even the lighting you install plays a factor in your family's health, happiness and longevity. Crazy right?
Did you know that you can design a kitchen that will help you eat healthier? This may sound too good to be true, but it's not!
The way a kitchen is designed plays a huge role in how we eat. We know that eating organic fresh fruits and veggies is best for our bodies. We are paying more attention to the fact that we shouldn't be eating processed and packaged foods. And we might even try to prep our meals or at least our veggies ahead of time to make our weeknights easier.
