Keeping your kitchen organized can be difficult. Despite your best efforts, there are times when the whole space looks more cluttered than it needs to be. Here are three of the most common kitchen organizing mistakes you could be making and the fixes for each.
1. Too Many Appliances on the Counter
One reason for a kitchen’s cluttered look is the number of appliances taking up valuable real estate on the counter. To tidy up this area, see if you can find storage spots in your kitchen island or cabinet for items you haven’t used for the longest time. You can also choose to sell or donate seldom-used appliances to free up more counter space.
2. Not Using Wall Space
You always want to make sure you have enough cabinets and drawers to boost your storage space. The problem is, they’re expected to reach full capacity after a few years. Don’t let them do all the work: utilize your existing wall space. Use it to add a magnetic knife rack or a row of hooks to hang your cooking utensils.
3. Not Considering Your Routine Meal Preparations
Organizing the kitchen based on appearance instead of functionality is a mistake many homeowners make. It might be time to reorganize if you roam around your kitchen just to get hold of the supplies you need to prepare and cook your lunch or dinner. Consider keeping your cooking utensils, pots and pans stored in cabinets or drawers that are close to the stove. Food storage containers must be stored near the fridge in case you need to store leftovers. These will help cut down your meal preparations in half.
