It’s a common scenario: you’ve finally designed your dream kitchen, everything is in place, you’ve got your ideal worktops, cabinetry and appliances, but your next problem lies in where exactly you’re going to put everything. It can be very difficult to know how to organise a kitchen to make the most of your available space without cluttering the room or making it difficult to use, so this article will look at 5 ways you can improve the organisation of your kitchen.
Bag your Bags
It can be common for people to place used plastic bags under the sink or in a cupboard, ready for your next shopping trip. However by simply placing these bags inside a bigger bag, you can save a lot of space and untidiness. Put your new bag of bags out of sight but in a place you can easily get to them.
Organise your CutleryWhile it may seem like a good thing to have a draw full of silverware, without proper organisation they can become mixed up, making it difficult to find certain utensils. Invest in a cutlery compartment for your drawer, so you can easily separate your silverware into their own sections.
Regular Fridge Cleaning
No matter how organised your fridge is, even if you have separate shelves for different kinds of foods, without regular clean outs it can soon become an unpleasant place. Pay close attention to fresh food such as fruit and veg, as it can soon rot and become malodourous. Storing jars in secure places can stop them falling over and spilling onto other food.
Maximise Cabinet Space
By getting creative with the way you store your dishes and glassware you can utilise your cabinet space efficiently without over-filling it. Try stacking dishes outside of your cabinet to see which way works the best, and then implement that to your cabinets. By stacking your dishes, trays and glasses carefully you will be surprised at the efficiency and neatness of your cupboard.
Store Items in Order of Use
There’s no point in filling your cupboards or worktops with random items if you’re not going to use them regularly. By putting your most-used items in cupboards that are easy to reach, you minimise the time you spend searching up and down for a utensil and instead help speed up the food preparation or cleaning process.
