Thanksgiving is only three days away, and if you’re the host, it’s time to start prepping your kitchen. The key to a perfect meal is managing the space you have. Whether the space is small or large, using it effectively will ensure a successful holiday.
Decorations are the key to creating a festive environment, but you’ll need to strategize their placement so they don’t interfere with the flow of your workspace. If counter space is limited, I would stay away from anything too large. You’ll need that space for prepping food and drinks. The best way to decorate in a small kitchen is to keep it simple. Using fall colors in items like napkins and tablecloths are a great way to incorporate decorations without cluttering the room. If you have a more ample space for decorations, a vase of warm colored flowers or a basket of fruit placed in a central location will create some holiday cheer. Just be sure to keep them in an area that doesn’t receive a lot of foot traffic. You’ll still create your desired environment, but you’ll do so in a way that makes for an effective workspace.
The space in this week’s mood board does a fantastic job of decorating for the holiday while optimizing the functionality of the room. The flowers and fruit bowl are placed in the middle of the counter, rather than to the side. The counters have also been cleared from the clutter of everyday life, allowing for even more usable work space.
