In school, Sabrina Artadi made pies and delivered them to friends on her bicycle. She shares that she once cooked to raise funds for the faculty. Through the years, her love for food has stayed with her. 

After a few difficult years, Sabrina found herself back in the kitchen. Cooking has now become a therapeutic activity and a great way to bond with her two kids. Now, she hosts her own cooking show called “Sabrina’s Kitchen” aired on the Asian Food Channel.

Keep the trash bins in sight

Sabrina shares that she tore down walls so that the kitchen would become airy and spacious. However, she admits that she often makes a mess while cooking. To remedy this, she kept a chic and simple stainless-steel trash next to the stove.

Keep essentials in sight

Sabrina shares that she likes seeing all of her kitchen essentials, like her favorite condiments and charming salt and pepper shakers. She says that this encourages her to cook for her family and friends. 

Opt for wall-mounted storage and deep sinks

Sabrina hangs her pots and pans on one of her kitchen walls. After use (and before washing), the pieces can be hidden away from view in the large and deep sinks. Keeping the items out of plain sight makes the space neat and organized.

Pick an cabinet with a clear door

If you have beautiful dinnerware and cutlery, opt for a storage option that will keep your pieces on display.

Find quirky items

Don't just stick to plain and boring items! Personalize your space with unique pieces, like a frying pan clock.
