A well organized kitchen is a pleasure to work in. You know exactly where things are, nothing irrelevant is eating up your counter space and you don’t have to turn the place up-side down to look for a serving spoon. A poorly organized kitchen, on the other hand, can be a bad (with a capital ‘B’) place to be in – both physically and mentally. Not only do you take longer to get even the simplest tasks done, you also end up disliking your kitchen space and work in it rather reluctantly. Hopefully, with these 7 efficient ideas to organize your kitchen well, we can reignite the spark and make you fall in love with working in your kitchen all over again!
1. Kitchen Counters
The counter space in the kitchen is the most likely place of all for your clutter to land up in. Small appliances, knives, cookery books, oil, spices, decorative items...virtually everything finds its way up there. To organize your kitchen well, here’s what you do. Keep only the most essential appliances on the countertop and find another place for everything else that you don’t use every day. Keep decorative items to a bare minimum and let the functionality of the kitchen do all the talking.
2. Kitchen Cabinets
Clutter-free, well organized kitchen cabinets translate into a hassle-free cooking experience. So, the first thing you’d do is classify everything in the cabinets into two groups - stuff you use frequently and those that you don’t.The latter goes into all the hard-to-reach cabinets. The former must be classified according to their use, like pots and pans in one drawer, dinnerware in another, the mixing bowls in the third, all your plastic wraps, food storage bags, dish towels, and foils in one place and so on and so forth.
