Organize Your Kitchen With These Tips

The kitchen for almost everyone is the heart of the home. It is where meals are made and eaten, family and friends gather and sometimes additional time is spent for various reasons at the counter or table. With so much time spent here some good organization is paramount for it to be the well oiled machine that you need it to be. Here are some really great tips on how to make yours fully functional for your needs. 

Flatware Organizer

If possible, having a flatware drawer organizer that is built in is always best. The reason being is they will be sure to fit properly. Second to that would be one you find at a store that fits in so that all utensils are easy to find and neatly put away.

Kitchen Utensil Drawer

Much like your regular flatware, keep those miscellaneous kitchen tools organized as well. Spatulas, ladles, spoons, whisks and the like should have their home neatly in the drawer for quick access and to keep things from getting tangled. 

Pot Lids

Pot lids are always awkward to store. Aside from fitting well on the pots, they don’t stack all that well. Consider one dedicated drawer for all of them so pots can be stacked for saving on storage space. All you need is a shallow drawer for the lids.

Vertical Storage Cabinet

These are exceptional solutions for bakeware. Narrow cupboards that have a couple dividers can be great for your cookie sheets, muffin tins, cooling racks and cutting boards. 

Docking Drawer

These days we all have numerous devices that require a home when not in use. You may consider a docking drawer for cell phones, laptops and tablets. Complete the storage space with a plug for charging.

Tall Cleaning Tool Cabinet

Do you have an end cabinet that is taller? You may want one. This can be a great space for easy access to brooms, mops and dusters. Have a shelf above for associated cleaning products or trash bags as well. 

Spice Drawer

Somewhat similar to a narrow cabinet idea, consider a spice drawer that is also narrow but pulls out with access to spices from either side. Being able to read labels easily for all is key with this system. 

Under Sink Pullout Storage

Most of us keep cleaning items under the sink that can get lost in an abyss of products. Stop having to bend down and awkwardly fish for what you need, get a rollout drawer so you can have the organized products come to you.

Food Storage

Similarly to the under sink storage, having a large cabinet that has rollout drawers is very helpful for us that don’t have walk in pantries. This helps keep all food organized and easily accessible. Things tend to get lost in the back less frequently where you can avoid having food go bad.
