Capable Kitchens

From holidays to birthday parties to regular old family dinners, it all starts in the kitchen. Give some love back to the hardest working room in the home with these simple tips.

COOL, CLEAN, AND DECLUTTERED COUNTERS

A cluttered eyesore of a countertop not only looks bad, it feels bad. And it will get in the way of anything and everything you try and get done in the kitchen.

1. Make use of baskets, bins, and anything else to store often-used culinary tools, like cutting boards and measuring cups.
2. Store effectively. More often than not a cluttered kitchen starts with inefficient organization in your cabinets, drawers, and pantries.
3. And to make the most of your easy-access storage, go bold and turn it into a visual statement piece with bright colors and interesting materials.
 

KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE AND YOUR CLEANING SUPPLIES CLOSER

A dirty kitchen will drive you up the wall, and make cooking meals that much more difficult.

1. Lessen the dread of the once-a-month deep clean by regularly cleaning on a smaller scale.
2. Create a designated space to store the essentials, and you’ll never have an excuse to put it off.
3. Five or ten minutes of extra work will extend the lives of appliances, utensils, pots, and pans, and keep your kitchen looking superb.

ACHIEVE HARMONY THROUGH DECORATION

A little decorative planning will allow you to experience the benefits of an open-concept home in full.

1. Keep it thematically consistent. If the kitchen floor is a light hardwood, don’t go with dark, heavy, carpeting in the great room.
2. Match throw pillows on the great room couch to the cloth napkins on the kitchen snack bar, or wooden bar stools to the stain of the coffee table.
3. Create a harmonious environment by matching color palettes in your kitchen, great room, and any other room included in the open-concept area.

So make sure your favorite memories start in a kitchen you can be proud of. A kitchen that’s well-organized, clean, and coordinates with the rest of your home. Need more inspiration?

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.

  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.

  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.

  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
