7 Amazing Tips for a Kitchen That Ages Well


One of the most important rooms in a home is the kitchen. It’s where we cook our meals, store our food, and gather with friends and family. A well-functioning kitchen is a must, but what happens when your kitchen starts to show its age?


Luckily, there are some things you can do to help keep your kitchen looking and functioning at its best for years to come. Here are 7 amazing tips:


Keep it clean


Keep your counters clean and clutter-free. This will make it easier to work in the kitchen and will also make it look neater. Also, clean your kitchen appliances on a regular basis. This is especially important for ovens, microwaves, and dishwashers. Not only will this help them to last longer, but it will also help to keep your kitchen looking clean and tidy.



Install cabinet organizers to help you organize your pots, pans, and other cooking supplies. This will make it easier to find what you need and will also help to prevent clutter. Use drawer dividers to organize your silverware. This will make it easier to find what you need and will also help to prevent clutter. Use a pantry or cabinet to store your dishes and glasses. This will keep them out of the way and will also make it easier to find what you need. A spice rack will help you to organize your spices. This will make it easier to find what you need and will also help to prevent clutter. Keep your refrigerator and freezer organized. This will make it easier to find what you need and will also help to prevent clutter.


Keep it dry


Store your pots and pans in a dry place. If you store them in a humid environment, they are likely to rust. This can be a real pain to clean up, so try to keep them in a dry place when not in use.

Go easy on the plastic storage ware, or go without entirely.


Just like with cleaning supplies, using fewer disposable products when you store food will cut down on messes that need to be cleaned up later. Consider investing in a nice set of glass containers with airtight lids to store your leftovers in. Not only does this cut down on waste, but it looks a lot nicer when you have a look in your cupboard! 


Keep a stash of cleaning supplies under the sink.


Your kitchen is a busy place, with lots of things coming in and out of the room on a regular basis. From dirty dishes to sticky spills, your countertops are going to take quite a bit of abuse over time. Keeping everything up off the floor will reduce wear and tear on base cabinets, while also keeping them cleaner longer. Investing in some basic cleaning supplies so you can clean up after yourself without having to leave your kitchen will help keep it looking good for years to come! 


Use rugs and runners to protect floors from furniture scratches.


Putting down some rugs in the high-traffic areas will help protect your flooring from damage. If you’ve got room, try out a small runner at the bottom of the stairs for an added cushion when people walk up and down them. This is also a great idea when entertaining so friends aren’t tracking dirt through your house!


Choose white or lighter-colored cabinetry to show off your decor. 


If the kitchen cabinet is the focal point of your room, it’s a great idea to choose a color that will really pop! White and light colors are great because they make whatever you put inside the cabinets stand out even more so you can showcase your cooking skills without being too busy or distracted with lots of colors.

Just like with clothing, and basically, everything else in life, choosing pieces that will last you a long time and look good while doing so is key. Kitchens provide a central gathering spot for family and friends, who can share both food and memories – it makes sense that this space is one that you will want to enjoy for years to come.


Our philosophy at Nelson Cabinetry is to make sure the kitchen has an ageless feel – cabinets  should illustrate function over form, be neutral in tone and color, and be made for ease of cleaning…in short – anything that could date the space now will do so over time.
