The kitchen is the heart of your home. Having a disorganised kitchen can make cooking appear to be a chore instead of a fun and useful activity. The good news is that you don’t have to spend too much money and time to reorganise your kitchen.
If there are plenty of items sitting on the counter, get yourself some kitchen storage units. Jayfurn Industries and other experts suggest going for a wall-to-wall shelving or install some under-the-cabinet sliding shelves, which could be ideal for storing kitchen items that you use occasionally. The secret to an organised kitchen is putting everything off the counter.
Let these tips help you have that organised kitchen you’ve always wanted:
Zone Your Kitchen
Have an area specifically for baking. Do the same for cooking, food prepping, and juicing. A quality stainless steel Lazy Susan or counter raiser can be helpful for storing away spices and condiments that you use frequently. Remember that the idea is to buy quality accessories that also function as décor if you want your kitchen to resemble one of those you see in movies.
If you’re like most people, then you probably have more utensils than you need. Go through your kitchen and get rid of all the extra plastic containers as well as kitchen convenience tools that you bought, but you will never use.
Put items like the coconut scraper or an onion dicer in your garage until you have your next sale if you rarely use them. Replace your as-seen-on-TV kitchen tools with quality double-duty kitchen appliances that you can proudly display on your counters as kitchen art.
Turn on Your OCD
Be particular with your kitchen organisation by bundling similar things together, using drawer dividers to organise your cutlery and colour coding your kitchen utensils based on functionality. Use wire and breathable rattan baskets to store produce, and categorise food storage in a library catalogue style system and label everything. You should also customise your pantry if you have one and start hanging stuff to put them away.
There are many things you can do to transform your kitchen. However, not all of them are affordable or suitable for your kitchen. Be careful to choose not only what looks good in your kitchen, but is also within your budget.
