Kitchen Remodel Tip: Panel-Ready Dishwasher

Kitchen Remodel Tip: Panel-Ready Dishwasher

One of the design choices we made during our kitchen remodel was to have a cabinet front dishwasher, which is technically called a panel-ready dishwasher. A panel-ready dishwasher is specifically designed to hold a cabinet front.

I really wanted this option for our kitchen because I knew it would help to streamline the look of our cabinets. I love how it offers symmetry on either side of the farmhouse sink.

Many cabinet manufacturers will offer a matching dishwasher panel as an option, so be sure to ask about these options when you are selecting appliances and cabinetry if this is a feature you’re interested in!

Ours is KitchenAid, you can read my post about how we chose all of our appliances here.

The long bar on our dishwasher is a regular . It was purchased to match our other hardware and added to the panel for us by our contractor. It works great to open the dishwasher and doubles as a towel bar!

My Best Secret for Making Cleaning Spark Joy

My Best Secret for Making Cleaning Spark Joy

Click here for the natural all-purpose cleaner I recommend!

Does cleaning your house spark joy? It does for me! Well, mostly it does :). One of my best secrets for keeping my house clean has always been making the experience of cleaning as enjoyable as possible. If you dread the whole process, you’re likely going to want to avoid it. Am I right?

I always recommend incorporating more of your senses into everything you want to enjoy and savor. It makes such a big difference!

To set the right mood for housecleaning, I put on my “cleaning clothes” and always wear sturdy house shoes (I never have been able to clean as efficiently in dress clothes, and definitely am not as productive when I wear socks or slippers. I learned the “wear shoes” secret from Flylady! It really works for me. Do what works for you!).

My Best Secret for Making Cleaning Spark Joy

When it’s dark outside, I turn on my little lamps to make the house feel warm, cozy and inviting (which makes dirty dishes and laundry feel even more unwelcome in my home!).

If it’s morning, I start my pot of coffee as I’m getting ready to clean (love love love the fresh aroma filling the air!). Then I pour the coffee, add my foamed Oatmilk and sprinkle cinnamon on top (if you watch my Instagram stories you know I like to sprinkle cinnamon in the shape of a heart on top of the foam because WHY NOT show yourself some love, especially as you clean….LOL!).

Whenever possible I play cheerful music or listen to an interesting podcast. My go-to cleaning music lately has been Vance Joy, and one podcast I’ve been enjoying is called The Road Back to You (about the Enneagram!).

As you know I’m all about the cozy scents in fall and winter, and the citrus or floral scents in spring and fall. So of course I LOVE to incorporate seasonal scents into my cleaning rituals, too.

My Best Secret for Making Cleaning Spark Joy

Even though I no longer buy the scented cleaning products I used get every season (I stay away from toxic products for health reasons, even the ones I thought were natural aren’t) I recently I discovered the best thing in the history of cleaning. I can easily customize the scent of my favorite non-toxic products according to my whims or for the seasons by simply adding drops of essential oils!

Oh my goodness, you guys, I LOVE doing this now!!! I know it’s such a little thing but dreaming up my very own seasonal scents and enjoying them makes cleaning SPARK SO MUCH MORE JOY than ever before!

Here is my current favorite seasonal scent combination:

Lemon Myrtle + Geranium

I just add several drops of each oil to my Thieves household cleaner in a 16 oz glass spray bottle. Easy peasy! (please note that I only use this brand of oils to ensure the purity of what I’m breathing in!).

Sometimes I catch myself thinking about cleaning just so I can get out my pretty bottle and smell the wonderful scent I mixed up, ha! What may have seemed like a dreaded chore before, is actually an experience I can look forward to.

Young Living oils are the only brand I recommend because they are the highest quality, safe and so amazing for sleep, emotions, immune support, digestion, focus, non-toxic cleaning and so much more. You can learn more about why I love them and grab yours here!

Happy Cleaning!
