Your kitchen is the busiest room in your house, and can also be the most
cluttered. With a lot to store and minimal space, it can easily become
disorganized, making it much harder for you to find what you need. Stop by your
Bay Area home improvement store and check out the following tips to get the most use out of your kitchen
Empty Your Cabinets
Remove each item from your kitchen cabinets and regard it with a critical
eye. Put aside any gadgets, dishes, and pots and pans that are broken
or rarely used. Throw away broken items, and donate ones that may be usable
for someone else. Your goal is to keep only the items that are well loved
and often used. Sort the remaining items into groups, keeping like items together.
Make a Plan for Your Cabinet Space
Take note of the
cabinet space you have to make a storage plan. Choose each item’s place based
on how often it’s used. Put items that you reach for multiple times
a day—like glasses, mugs, and plates—in cabinets that are
at eye-level. Pots, pans, and appliances that may not be used on a daily
basis can go in the lower cabinets. The highest cabinets in your kitchen
can be used to store items that you only use in special circumstances,
like holiday tableware and specialized kitchen appliances.
Streamline Your Food Storage
If you don’t have a pantry and use kitchen cabinets for food storage,
you can make a few changes that will save you space and keep food fresher.
Purchase some clear plastic shoebox containers to store food that comes
in small packets or boxes, like oatmeal, nuts, raisins, and pudding. This
will keep them from getting scattered throughout the cabinets and spilling
open. Cereal that comes in large boxes or bags can be poured into plastic
containers that are smaller and will keep the cereal fresh for longer.
