17 May Guide to Kitchen Organisation
Making it easier to find what you need in the kitchen will help you to enjoy preparing meals and entertaining guests. Follow these tips to organise your kitchen, help your daily household routines run smoothly and enjoy the time you spend in the hub of your home.
- Create a Cooking Zone
Designate a cooking area around the stove and store the things you will need close to the stove such as pots, pans and spices.
- Install Shelf Organisers
Shelf organizers with tiers give you easy access to your most used items and put everything on display. They will also help keep all of your containers and bigger items from falling out of your highest shelves when reaching for items.
- Store Items By Use
Arrange your kitchen items in areas according to how often you use them. Place frequently used everyday items in easy-to-reach shelves and your special dinnerware in higher cabinets.
- Group Similar Items
Arranging similar cooking utensils together will make it easier to find everything you need. For example, centralize bakeware in the same cabinet and plastic bags and food wrap in the same drawer.
- Categorise Food
Categorise your food as have with your kitchen items, grouping by category, sauces, spreads, spices and canned foods.
- Use Drawer Dividers
Use drawer dividers and inserts to keep your cutlery organized and keep items from sliding around.
- Utilise Baskets
Baskets are great as they are easy to grab if you store them in higher places and leave your open shelving uncluttered.
- Hang a Whiteboard near the Fridge
For an easy shopping list, use a whiteboard near the fridge or pantry to document your meal planning so you’ll never run out of ingredients again.
- Label Glass Storage Jars
See-through storage such as glass jars help you stay organized in the kitchen with customized labelling.
- Use a Lazy Susan
Great for inside corner cabinets, a multi-layered lazy susan will let you reach every item in your cabinets and make the most of your corner space.
