Imagine planning a big dinner or trying out a new recipe, only your kitchen is not as well-organized as you might like for it to be, which can seriously put a damper on your excitement. Rather than opting for take-out, learn how to better stock your kitchen with cabinet storage organizers and these few simple tips.
There’s no need for you to have to use a flashlight and dig through your kitchen cabinets. Simply replace your fixed cabinet shelves with some that slide out instead. Sliding shelves and sliding cabinet storage organizers make it easy to find everything in your cabinets, but make sure that the sliding shelves have shallow lips around them so that your items don’t fall out. You should also make sure that your sliding shelves are only at chest-level so that you can easily see everything that’s inside of them.
Divide It Up
Another good organizational tip is to use organizer trays inside of your kitchen drawers so that you have an easier and faster time of finding exactly what you need. When placing items in organizer trays, you’ll want to group items together so that you’ll have a specific place to start when searching for items.
Rather than placing pans, muffin trays, and cake pans horizontally, place them vertically instead. Doing so takes up less space and makes it easier for you to keep things organized and also allows you to position these items close to the oven if you wish.
If you have a lot of wall space in your kitchen, consider using cabinet shelf organizers for extra storage and so that you can easily see what’s on each shelf rather than using a traditional cabinets with doors. Not only does this option make things easy to see, it also makes it easier when you’re putting dishes up and pulling them down. You’ll certainly appreciate this tip if you have family members who often leave cabinet doors wide open.
Under the Sink
Cabinet storage organizers and stacking bins can also be placed underneath your sink for better organization and easy access to washcloths, cleaning supplies, dish detergent, dustpans, and anything else you might have tucked away underneath your sink.
Stack It Up, Spice it Up
Rather than positioning cans and spices in front of each other, use expanding kitchen pantry organizers and stack your cans and spices up and down so that you’ll have an easier time of seeing the labels. Now you don’t need to spend more time than necessary guessing which can and spice is which. This is also a great idea for tea lovers.
If you don’t have very much counter space in your kitchen, you’ll want to group items according to use. Items that you use often should be within easy reach on your counters, cabinets, and drawers. That roasting pan, fine china, and crockpot can go up high or in the back of your cabinets so that they’re not taking up more space than absolutely necessary.
A well-organized kitchen is a joy to cook in. Take out a few minutes to see how you can get your cooking space looking like a fine gourmet kitchen.
