3 Things Every Functional Kitchen Needs
Make preparing meals more efficient with these must-haves!
A kitchen may have the most complex design—complete with solid wood cabinets and smart appliances—but if it doesn't have the right food prepping basics, the rest doesn't matter.
When it comes to this part of the home, it's all about having equipment that is reliable and we can make the most of on a daily basis. After all, the kitchen is where we whip up treats that keep our families happy and healthy.
If you are thinking about giving your kitchen bits and bobs an upgrade, here are three things you should start with.

Clear Storage Containers
Once you find a system that works for your kitchen or pantry, consider giving your plastic boxes a new look with clear storage. It's easier to see what you have, especially if you stock up on certain ingredients.
RL Tip: If you are thinking twice about purchasing new containers, you can use mason jars that you already have at home. These are incredibly versatile—they are great for dry good like cereal or even as drinking glasses, too!

Pots and pans are two of the most used essentials in the kitchen. We use these when cooking food and making homemade herbal treatments so it's vital that you have one or two pieces that won't fail you.
When shopping, keep in mind that there are different kinds of cookware available in the market. Consider buying individual pieces that will cater to your needs instead of buying a full set in a single material that you will not be able to utilize well.

While there is a variety of more affordable chopping boards in the market, investing in a high-quality piece will get you more bang for your buck. Whether you decide on a butcher blockboard or a classic wooden piece, there are countless benefits to it: tidying is a breeze as you only have one thing to clean, it isn't prone to discoloration, and since it's made from substantial material, it's less likely that bacteria would thrive in it.
