Given that you’re likely spending a little extra time cooking these days, it’s possible that you’ve noticed a few dingy, neglected areas of your kitchen that could use some love and attention. I am not suggesting you spend all of your socially isolated hours scrubbing your oven, but picking a small kitchen betterment project each week will make the room a more pleasant place to be.

Completing one kitchen project a week has helped me feel a little less anxious and stir crazy, and has also visibly brightened my kitchen, a room I was already spending a lot of time in, but am now spending even more. So far I have cleaned the tops of my built-ins, wiped down the top of my fridge, and reorganized my pantry (which I had to do anyway to fit all of the beans and pasta). It’s important to pick a project that seems at least a little bit enjoyable—like reorganizing your bar cart so it’s aesthetically pleasing, or throwing away a bunch of expired salad dressings—and avoid those that fill you with dread. Potential projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Cleaning out the junk drawer
  • Washing your garbage can (surprisingly rewarding)
  • Shining your sink
  • Cleaning that gross spot behind the kitchen faucet
  • Culling your mug collection
  • Reorganizing your mass of pots and pans
  • Tossing old pint glasses
  • Cleaning your oven

The point is to gradually make your kitchen a better place without stressing about it. If you’re going to be cooking as much as you think you are, you might as well make where you cook a pleasant place to be.
