Wellness Trends: The Wellness Kitchen

Published

on

Are you currently building a lifestyle that is all about health and wellness? If so, some of the changes you make will go far behind your external and internal self. You will need to assess your current home environment and make a few changes to the interior of your home. Why not begin with your kitchen?

The definition of what constitutes a Wellness Kitchen may vary depending on who it is you ask. According to an article published by House Beautiful Magazine, “the ultimate goal is to remove as many harmful chemicals as possible from everyday life, providing a positive environment at the heart of the home and enabling the user to live a chemical-free and eco-friendly existence.”

Others follow a similar philosophy, describing it as a place underscores the use of reusable, sustainable, energy-efficient materials and appliances so that it aligns with a healthy, green lifestyle.

Others will advise that it takes everything we know about the standard kitchen and flips it into a space that is conducive leveraging design, technology, and healthy lifestyle practices. From the arrangement of your cupboards to the layout of your pantry to the foods you put in the refrigerator, your new kitchen should be arranged in a manner to support your overall lifestyle.

Design Centers

A design center could be the key to inspiration. Design centers can help you not only stay true to the concept, but they can also help individualize it to fit yours or your family’s style.

What are some of the basic thoughts that go into the design of this kind of kitchen? Several experts recommend that one of the things you want to consider about your kitchen to fit your healthy lifestyle are the countertops and flooring.

According to Bath and Kitchen Design, you want to select countertops and flooring that is easy to clean and maintain.

Your storage should be at heights that are easily accessible in the safest way possible, and lighting that makes preparation smooth is best, although dimmer lights may be the best option.

Finally, you want to select appliances that are safe and easy to use yet still technologically savvy enough to help you get the job done.

Hand-free faucets and workstation style sinks will be your best option for reducing the risk of the spread of germs and reducing the mess that can accompany healthy cooking.

Imagine a kitchen that comes readily equipped with the essential accessories to support cooking from scratch such as a cutting board, colander, and drying rack or a water purifier.

Another consideration you may want to think about as you design your kitchen is whether to include an indoor garden. Rather than buy all your herbs from the grocery store, a kitchen designed for wellness may afford you the option to have fresh herbs right at your fingertips.

You can place them on the sill of your kitchen window or in an area that receives a minimum of four to six hours of sunlight. Common herbs include rosemary, sage, basil, oregano, mint, and thyme.

Ready to Start?

These are just a few things for you to think about as you take the next steps towards designing your Wellness Kitchen. Whatever direction you decide to go, choose a design and layout that entices you to want to cook foods that promote health and wellness.
