The kitchen truly is the heart of most homes, and when it comes to choosing the best appliances to have in your kitchen, you must consider every item within the broader context of your eating lifestyle. But all things being equal, the following is a list of must-have kitchen appliances that every kitchen should have.

  • High-Speed Blender. Blenders are particularly good investments if you are a family tilted to soups or smoothies. There’s nothing as needful as the ability to turn vegetables into delicious broth or crushing fruits into healthy smoothies for the kids. Blenders are also great for whipping up homemade mayonnaise in your style.
  • Slow Cookers. Slow cookers are perfect for days when you want to come home after a long day at work and meet a well-cooked, piping hot meal waiting for you on your arrival. Simply throw in all the ingredients and condiments for your soup before you leave in the morning, set the programmer and walk away. You will return a well-cooked meal on your return at night. It’s almost like having your personal chef.
  • Espresso Machine. This coffee device is definitely on the list of appliances that every kitchen should have. An espresso machine will save you some money spent on coffee shops by delivering high-quality coffee to you at home. More so, if you are very particular about your coffee beans and flavors, then having your own espresso machine is a good investment.
  • Toaster Oven. If you have some extra space available on your countertop, then having a taster over is something that you should consider. Some baked edibles may be too large for your regular toaster, which is where your toaster oven comes in handy. It can even bake cakes and pizzas in a short time without giving off as much heat as a regular oven.
  • Food Processor. A food processor is a vital appliance for running all sorts of kitchen tasks. From blending to chopping and slicing, the food processor is almost a one-stop solution to cooking. The best thing is that you get to save time by not manually chopping those carrots and slicing the garlic, which can be converted to other things to make your cooking go a lot faster.

Always remember—at the end of the day, a must-have appliance for you is one that really fits in with the rest of your cooking habits and be sure to check out internet reviews before you finally pick a model for whatever appliance you want to purchase.

When we decorate and organize our homes, few of us give more than a passing thought to the way our choices will affect our mood and behavior in our home. Most of us simply organize and decorate based on what we like on a whim.

There are, however, entire fields of study devoted to the way our environment affects us (environmental psychology), and ways we can engineer and design our environments to change our moods and behaviors.

If you’ve ever visited a big city like New York you will likely have noticed an example of this firsthand in city parks.

When you sit down on a park bench, you’ll likely find that it isn’t the most comfortable place to sit. There’s more than just a tight budget at play here. Many engineers who plan parks use the idea of “unpleasant design.” They create benches with the intention of dissuading people from lying down  the benches by making them curved or putting arm rests in the middle of them.

In the same way that a city park can be designed to affect your behavior, your home can as well. In this article, we’ll give you some tips on how you can better arrange and decorate your home to have a positive impact on both your mood and behavior.

Organize to your advantage

Many of us think of our homes as the opposite of work--it’s a place we relax after a long day. However, there are a number of chores and tasks you’ll complete at home that can be optimally engineered to save you time.

One simple example is to think about the placement of the items you use in the kitchen. Is your trash can far from the countertop, requiring you to constantly walk away to toss out scraps?

A good way to find out the needless extra work you’re doing around the house is to take note of how you go about your daily routine. This will give you insight into areas where you might better use your time.

Declutter for productivity

Whether you work from home frequently or you just need a quiet place to do taxes or pay bills, a home office can be a good way to avoid distraction. That is, until you fill your home office with distractions.

When organizing your office, think about the content of it. For most people, a decluttered minimalist environment is most conducive to work. Leave out the television, keep your cell phone at bay, and don’t cover your desk in papers that you’ll constantly be rearranging.

Similarly, your computer needs to be tailored to productivity as well. We all know how tempting it is to head over to Facebook or Reddit when we should be focusing on work. A good way to help break this habit is to utilize a time tracking app that lets you know when it’s time for a break. Alternatively, you can use an extension or add-on for your browser that blocks sites like Facebook during the time you specify.

Colors matter more than you think

Each room in your home serves a different purpose. The kitchen is a place of activity and conversation, the bedroom is one of relaxation, and the home office one of focus.

Studies have shown that there is a correlation between the colors and brightness of the room we are in and our moods.

So, when you’re decorating a room in your home, think about the type of colors that fit how you would like to feel in that room.
