warm up your kitchen floors with wide plank wooden floors or preferably solid, rustic terracotta tiles or even better still, traditional Saltillo tiles. These pinkish-orange tiles are slightly irregular, have great texture and come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Moreover, you can seal or glaze them with a high quality sealer which gives the patina greater depth and so that they wear well over time and have minimal maintenance.
Keep all of your cleaning supplies in an easily accessable space with Thomasville Cabinetry's Utility Cabinet. I think this idea could be easily modified on a standard kitchen cabinet with a little ingenuity.
