Most of us spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s where we make meals, entertain our friends and chat with our family during our morning and evening routines. Some even refer to it as the heart of the home. If it doesn’t have enough space or storage, though, you might feel more frustration than enjoyment.
Harbour View Kitchen & Bath tells you how to make the most out of your kitchen cabinets.
Declutter Your Cabinets
Decluttering your cabinets is the first step to organizing your kitchen. Make sure to do this before you buy any storage solution or even begin to rearrange items. Set aside one container for trash and another for items to donate or sell. Sort out items from each cabinet into the trash or the ”sell box” as appropriate.
Arrange Items Back into Your Cabinets
Once you’re done decluttering, organize the contents of your kitchen cabinets. At its basic level, this means arranging everything in a way that is convenient to you and your family. You should have specific places for your food, appliances and kitchen tools. Make regularly used items as accessible as possible. Use kitchen cabinet organizers that separate by type of item. Remember that your kitchen and bathroom cabinets impact the whole look and feel of your home.
Place Items Where You Use Them and Separate Food from the Rest
Place everything you use for cooking close to the stove. Put your spices in a cabinet that’s close to the stove. If you want your kids to get their snacks or dishes, place them in cabinets that they can reach. Keep food items in cabinets separate from anything else. For instance, store food to the left, tableware to the right, or food in the upper cabinets and everything else in the lower ones.
