How to Organize Your Kitchen

How to Organize Your Kitchen

Kitchen organization is perhaps one of the scariest home projects to start. The kitchen is the center of a home, and a lot takes place in the kitchen, so it is common for kitchens to become disheveled and unorganized. There is no greater feeling than an organized kitchen, but many homeowners give up on that idea because they do not want to go through all the work to organize their kitchens if they are not going to stay that way. The truth is, if you organize your kitchen, it will be a lot easier to clean up messes, and the chances are that your kitchen will stay organized. Here are a few ways you can organize your kitchen and keep it organized over time.

Creating activity stations

Your kitchen should have a system, especially if there are several things going on at once in your kitchen throughout the day. If you and your family members know which events take place in which areas of the kitchen, it will be easier to clean up once the chaos is over. Use decorative trays to hold your smaller appliances like your toaster or coffee maker in order to designate specific areas for things to take place. Keep your cooking utensils, recipe books, pots and pans, and spices close to the stove so you do not have to move all around the kitchen when cooking. Creating stations should make your life easier and help you keep your kitchen organized.

Keeping cabinets and drawers organized

Cabinets and drawers seem to be the source of messes that cannot be tamed, but it is time to tame them with organization tools. Use drawer organizers to give all your small items a home. While it might seem like organization tools will take up valuable space, you will be amazed how much space these tools actually open up. Not to mention, when everything has a place to reside, it is much easier to clean up. Everyone has a junk drawer, and even junk drawers can be organized. Junk drawers are acceptable, but there is a reason you keep all of that junk, so make it easy to find by using organization tools. If your budget permits, install pull out drawers in your cabinets so your kitchen supplies are easy to access, and even easier to keep organized.

Creative storage ideas

If you are working with a limited amount of space, sometimes you just have to get creative with how you store your kitchen items. Home Talk suggests using tension rods to separate lids, cutting boards and cookie sheets and open up space in your cabinets or pantry by not having to stack these items horizontally. You can use tension rods to hang your cleaning supplies on, and open up cabinet space. The options are endless, it just takes a little creativity.
