Here’s a little secret: if I follow my heart it always leads me to the fridge! Because quite frankly, the kitchen is the true heart of our home! And any healthy breakfast, yummy snack or amazing Holiday feast, they always start right here: in the kitchen. Just like my daughter’s first cooking lessons: the art of scramble eggs, and the romantic dishes-cleaning with my hubby ( because once you’re a parent here’s where you catch up on your relationship). Oh and also the girls night in – well, no who am I kidding? It’s actually the middle-of-the-day play date. Everything happens in the kitchen.
And even if the said heart of the home is as small as mine, life still revolves around the kitchen.
And it seems like during the Holiday season the kitchen is even more important then ever! Here’s where we bake cookies and decorate the gingerbread house, here’s where we pour the punch and serve our guests the vine, and here’s where we make our DIY from-the pantry gifts!

Our old dishwasher was white while the range and the fridge where in stainless steel. Every appliance was a different mark and on top of it, we were missing the over the range fan! And the classical kitchen cupboards just made the space look even smaller then it was.
When I was looking for the new kitchen appliances I knew I needed a good quality first, with the technology that helps families in their every day! And I must say, I we are more then happy now with all KitchenAid matching appliances!
And so here’s how we made our small kitchen feel bigger, and more practical :
So now our kitchen is ready to take on the load of the Christmas cooking, baking and washing! You can see it all and read all about the best appliances for small spaces here, in the new Hello Holiday guide.
