Kitchen Updates to Boost Your Mood

How is everyone doing during the Coronavirus lockdown? I go back and fourth between being positive and productive to having so much feeling of overwhelm. I’m trying to make the best out of this situation, but this is hard.

I do know I want to try to help as many people as I can, so I plan to put together a series of mood boards with some small upgrades you can do that will help you feel more comfortable until the virus subsides. 

Starting in the kitchen, we’ve put together three different looks that have a few things we know can go a long way in living your best life while hunkering down at home.

COLOR & CHEER

Colorful accents are the quickest way to bring cheer to any environment. We included a few items that lend impactful bursts of color to brighten and energize your mood. These items are priced to grab quickly, but we did include two rug options to choose from in one of the mood boards, one of which is a little more budget-friendly than the other. We also designed the boards around white plates since that’s what most people already have.

ORGANIZATION

Overflowing pantries require organization and we selected a few products to help get you there. Use the pantry jars as a countertop display and fill with things like rice, beans and pastas. Jars are one of my all time favorite photo styling tricks, and it works perfect for daily life as well. You might not use the clear plastic snack bins as a display, but it will organize quick-grab snacks in your pantry and can be thrown in the dishwasher to sanitize. Grab spice rack that we selected as well to keep spices neatly arranged in cabinets as we all prepare more meals at home during this time.

QUICK UPGRADES

Minor upgrades go so far in how you feel about and utilize your home. Indulge in getting a new kitchen soap dispenser that has motion sense and a cookbook holder that’ll hold a book or your iPad. Benefits: you are touching one less surface – the kitchen is one of the germiest places in the house, after all.

We hope that a few of things make it into your kitchen because a little bit could go a long way to uplift your spirits. Links are below if you’d like to shop for anything.

*We are not getting commission from any of these items. Our only goal at this time is for you to feel more comfortable in your home.
