The lockdown has caused plenty of us to clean up our kitchens, toss out all that stuff we don’t need any more and reassess one of the most important rooms in the house. And now that the island’s businesses are-opening, it’s time to make your kitchen your very own!

The kitchen is one of the most versatile rooms in your home, ands can fulfill various functions. If you like cooking its a study, a laboratory, a play room and a space full of things that delight you, from that perfect knife you’ve waited for all your life to a beautiful string of dried peppers. Your kitchen is technical, tempting, a place where design and function are vital.

If you’re not such a kitchen God or Goddess, it’s a practical place, where you can grab snacks, heat things up and, above all, relax the kitchen is one of the most consistently social areas in many cultures. Your kitchen is simple, easy, practical, bright and inviting.

If you have family, your kitchen will probably combine chaos and disaster with the tenderest, funniest moments of family life. Think about it, and it’s no surprise that this is where some of the most important events in your life have happened. Your kitchen is emotional, cosy, comforting and full of joy.

If you haven’t given your kitchen the once-over during the lockdown, now’s the time. Summer’s here and there’s no better time to clear the decks. Get rid of everything you don’t use, from a Breville sandwich toaster to a jar of Himalayan rose salt, and think about how you can use the stuff you want to keep.

Then get outdoors. Lanzarote is full of fantastic shops selling kitchen equipment, cookery implements, appliances, ornaments and everything else. Some of them even sell brand new kitchens!
