With the fast paced and hectic lives we lead today, having a well-organized kitchen is essential to avoid clutter. In order to run your life and home smoothly, it will be well your worth focusing on organizing your storage well. Here are a few tips that will help you to get your kitchen organized.
Organize Your Pantry
You will require at least one fair-sized pantry in order to organize foodstuff. Don't just keep piling in the cans, the pantry should be organized in such a way so that finding things is easy when you require them and also to become immediately aware when you run low on any food item.
One of the best ways to organize your pantry is dividing the space according to each type of food such as snacks, condiments, legumes, dried foods, canned meats, jams; sweeteners - artificial sweeteners, molasses, honey, sugar, grains, pasta, canned fruits, canned vegetables, etc.
In fact, check out how grocery stores organize their storage space by categorizing each type of food and replicate the same idea in your pantry. Place the newest items at the back thus pushing the older food items forward. Arrange rectangular steps so that the items can be stored at different heights so that even the stuff that is at the back is visible.
You could place them right beside your stove in attractive storage bins or fix a wire mesh wall in your kitchen and hang them on it so that they are on display.
For example, all the glasses should be kept in one cupboard, while all your cups should be kept on a different shelf. You should use a wide drawer to store your silverware, which you should be able to reach easily from your stove or counter.
Organize Your Appliances
Keep the kitchen appliances that you use only occasionally in those hard-to-reach places, which helps you to get them out of the way, thus reducing the clutter in your kitchen, plus making good use of those spaces. A good tip about appliances is not to go overboard about buying too many of them in the first place.
There really are no rules, just organize your kitchen according to your sense of style and convenience.
