A well-organized kitchen space would make you an efficient cook no matter how much space you can afford to devote for the purpose. Easier said than done, right? Sure, this is tedious work, but with a few easy steps, you can make your kitchen space-efficient and organized. Here’s more.
Categorize the clutter
The essential step of organizing any room—be it your bedroom or kitchen—is de-cluttering. Your kitchen will have all those unnecessary items from ice cream makers to useless gadgets that you hardly use on a daily basis. You will have to weed out all the unwanted kitchen tools, expired edibles, and reboot the pantry filled with processed junk foods.
Coordinate the jars
Did you know that having hordes of mismatched kitchen containers can lead to nothing but clutter and chaos? Choose rectangular or square shaped containers that can be stacked up well so that you can space efficiently. Also, make sure that you buy containers and utensils that are safe for your fridge, microwave, and your dinner table as well. Doing so will maximize the usability of containers and utensils.
Get rid of waste space in your kitchen
Many people have unused corners (racks, cabinets or awkward trays). Think of how you can use these corners. Also, every month, do a check on the expired food items to create free space.
Keep the fridge organized
Even though this may sound superfluous, many may not be aware of the fact that there are ideal spots for various sorts of foods. You should keep dairy products for the upper shelf where the temperature remains stable while meat should be shifted to the lower end of the fridge since this space remains cold in most cases.
The key to an organized kitchen is to store the frequently-used items in accessible spots. Also, you don’t want an empty kitchen. So, store the items that you occasionally need in a way that there isn’t any mess.
