“My bathroom and kitchen, my pride – tips on pimping them up”

To pimp up ones  kitchen one may choose to focus on small changes, or make big changes or on the other hand go with incorporating a theme.

 Small changes include removing the clutter and bringing back order into ones kitchen, incorporating color into ones kitchen, adding fresh flowers into ones kitchen’s décor, using attractive fridge magnets, changing the curtains, table clothes, kitchen linen.
Big changes call for more time and resources and include increasing shelves’ space, repainting the kitchen, pulling down walls or incorporating different types of lighting into the kitchen.
Also consider having a themed kitchen for example African theme that incorporates African artefacts like pots, uteos, modern cutlery and crockery or a colored theme.
To pimp up the bathroom  one can choose to have elegant fixturesin the, select durable and  water proof flooring, incorporate a stylish mirror into the decor, ensure that the bathroom has sufficient storage.
Never compromise on the quality of ones toilet and always sit in the bathtub before purchasing it.
The color in the bathroom should be subtle, cool and relaxing.
Where space is an option consider having the bath tub and toilet in one room.
And lastly, where one has the resources; luxury and opulence  can be incorporated into any bathroom which includes adding a vanity, chair, or gymn or exercise equipment.
The bathroom and kitchen are very important rooms in the home  and are critical in hygiene. To avert any source of infection or disease high standards of cleanliness should be maintained. The rooms should  have sufficient ventilation.
These few tips on how to pimp up the quality of the bathrooms and kitchens in our homes brings us to the end  of the month where we focused on pimping up our homes.
It has been my pleasure navigating the same.
This holiday month of December, it will not be business as usual in ‘Wacha nIKwambie Uzima’, as we take a digital journey around the globe  and learn about different parts  of the world. Pardon the journey being biased to Kenya as this is the writer’s beloved country and there are several gems therein. Kenya is one o of the few countries whose capital city has a natural national park and it is not uncommon for one to have breakfast in their home and then proceed for  a game drive and indulge in sights of buffalo or giraffes or  even lions shortly thereafter.
‘Safari tunayo!’ – (Trans. We have  a holiday!)
So happy holidays it is from this end!
