How To Get Your Kitchen Ready For Christmas – 2013

It’s coming one of the busiest times in the year for a kitchen – yes you’ve guessed it, Christmas is fast approaching, which is why you need to make sure that yours is up to scratch. Not only do you need to check that everything is working correctly, you also need to make sure that it looks nice and presentable, especially if it’s your turn to host a family meal this year. These top tips will help you to get your kitchen Christmas ready in no time:

Check Your Oven

Although this may seem obvious, there have been many people that have had their Christmases ruined by faulty ovens. Just turn on your oven and check that it actually works and heats up, especially if you haven’t used it in a while.

You may want to have a big cleanout and clean your oven so your guests won’t be disgusted by the state of it when they come over, and so it doesn’t affect your cooking. You also need to check the size of your oven when buying the turkey, as you don’t want to find out later on that it won’t fit.

Update Your Décor

The last thing you want is for people to be talking about the state of your home – whether it is the broken cupboard that you were supposed to sort a few months ago, the chipped door paint or the grimy looking walls. Now don’t worry, you don’t have to have a whole makeover; the simple DIY jobs can be easily sorted and the walls can be redone with wall panels. They are much easier to install than tiles as they don’t require any grouting, and they are easy to clean with their wipe-able surfaces.

Test Out Your Tables and Chairs

You probably want to avoid any unnecessary accidents so you may want to test out all of the chairs to your dining table. Give all of the screws a bit of a tighten in case they are a bit wobbly. This is the same of the table, as the last thing you want when trying to eat is a rickety table.

Do An Inventory Of Your Dishes

You need to check you have enough cutlery and dishes for everyone coming and, unless you want to be using your mismatched and chipped plates, you might want to start digging for your good china. You also need to think about how and what you will be cooking on the day, as you may find you have run out of pans.

Try to plan out a cooking schedule so you know how long things will be cooking for and if there is an overlap, this should help you determine whether or not you need to run out and buy a new saucepan.

Get Into The Christmas Festivities

It may be a bit early to start decorating yet, however you can begin to visualise where things will go and start collecting items such as crackers, candles and tinsel. When it gets a bit closer to Christmas and it is slightly more acceptable to start decorating, you kitchen will be one that people will love.

Now that you know what you need to do to get your kitchen ready for Christmas, you need to get a move on. It will come around much faster than you think, what with all of the Christmas shopping and wrapping to get through too!
