The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in an entire house. It is where you cook, bake, entertain, and socialize. It’s important to keep this area as organized as possible to keep it running as efficiently as possible. Find four easy tips when it comes to organizing your kitchen from your Boston experts at Closet & Storage Concepts.
Sort Out What You Don’t Use
You may have all sorts of crazy things within your kitchen. This could include cupboards full of expired spices. Or maybe drawers full of gadgets you never use. It may even include cabinets full of dishes you never eat on.
First, remove what you don’t use. Then make the decision as to whether you are going to use it or not. If you decide to keep it, be sure you are really going to use it. As for what you don’t want, you can either donate it or sell it.
Once you get rid of everything you’re not going to use any longer, you may find that you have all sorts of storage room. Increasing your storage space can make it easier to organize your kitchen.
Hang Your Pots & Pans
Pots and pans are almost always thrown into lower cabinets. Then, each time you cook, you have to bend down and hunt around for your favorite frying pan. You may also struggle to find the matching lid. Hanging them can make your kitchen more organized, since they will be easily visible and accessible.
There are a few ways to do this. The first is to get a rack that you can hang from your ceiling. These are commonly hung above a kitchen island. The second is to get a system that allows you to hang the pots and pans inside of your lower cabinets. Both methods allow you to easily access what you need when you need it.
Create More Storage in Your Pantry
There may be a lot of unused space within your pantry. When you can make better use of the space, you may have room for more cereals, pastas, and more. Closet & Storage Concepts of Boston can provide assistance on how to create more storage with a custom solution. Shelves, drawers, and other clever solutions can be added to create more storage, while also keeping items organized.
Remove Seasonal Items
You may have a lot of seasonal items that you only bring out during the holidays or for other special occasions. While you want to hold onto these items, there may not be any reason to have them taking up valuable space within your kitchen. Remove them and place them into a hall closet or in the garage with the other holiday items. This way, you can help clear out what’s not used often in your kitchen.
