So, you’ve chosen your new kitchen…now it’s time to get ready to say goodbye to your old one! Taking photos is a great way to get started. Nothing jogs memories quite like a photograph can – so get snapping! Make sure to take plenty of photos when the kitchen is in use, such as when the kids are helping with dinner, or just helping themselves to cookies when they think you’re not looking. Don’t worry about waiting for the perfect staged pic; take photos of your kitchen as you remember it.
Is a ‘kitchenwarming party’ a thing? If not, it should be! To celebrate your new kitchen, why not host a dinner party with some of your nearest and dearest? Make sure to showcase some of the photos you took of your last kitchen, so you can appreciate your new one even more. Plus, don’t forget to take photos of your new kitchen during the night – after all, it’s time to start making those new kitchen memories!
