Granite and Quartz Installations Manchester, How to prepare your kitchen for Christmas

Prepare your kitchen for stress-free cooking while entertaining this Christmas. Christmas cake, mince pies, roast turkey, pigs in blankets, gingerbread men, Brussels sprouts, and cranberry sauce. There’s no doubt that cooking and eating good food is a key part of gatherings and celebrations during the festive period.Whether you’re cooking for one or hosting a huge feast for friends and family, a little advance preparation can go a long way to reduce stress and make time you spend in the kitchen this Christmas more enjoyable.

Here are five ways to get your kitchen ready:

Declutter and deep cleanse

Taking the time to reorganise, clear out and clean your kitchen before Christmas will make it a pleasure to spend time in. Empty and reorganise your cupboards, throwing away out of date or unused items to make room for festive treats. Declutter worktops and shelves to create an aesthetically-pleasing and relaxing space to cook in. Deep cleanse those areas that you don’t do often, including the kitchen floor, cupboard doors, oven, microwave and bins.

Refresh or makeover your kitchen

If your kitchen needs repairs or is feeling a little tired and drab, you may want to take the plunge and update it. Reface kitchen cupboards, invest in a beautiful, sparkling new granite or quartz worktop, or give the walls or cabinets a lick of paint to instantly give your kitchen an affordable makeover.Here at Granite and Quartz Installations, we have more than 25 years’ experience in supplying and fitting affordable, high-quality kitchen worktops.

Review your cookery inventory

Over the festive season you might find that you use more pots, pans, baking trays, dishes and bowls than at any other time of the year. Make a list of every festive dish and bake that you plan on making and check that you have all the utensils and cookware that you need well in advance of Christmas to avoid any last-minute panic!

Clear out and defrost your fridge and freezer

Before you do the big Christmas shop, make sure that you’ve cleared out, cleaned and defrosted your fridge and freezer so that there’s plenty of room for all your festive goodies.


The kitchen is often the hub of the home, where families and friends gather and socialise while cooking, eating and drinking. Once your kitchen is clean and organised it’s time for the fun bit; adding the decorations! Candles, wreaths, lights and garlands can all add some festive cheer and create a warm and welcoming space to spend time in this Christmas.For help or advice choosing a new kitchen worktop, get in touch with our team of experts here at Granite and Quartz Installations by giving us a call on 0161 287 0715.
