Tips For Kitchen Organization

There are a few rooms in the home that will always have a really high amount of people traffic. The bathroom, the living room and the kitchen tend to top the list. They are hotbeds of noise, toys, mess, conversation and ‘doing’ things. That is part of while they are so lovely, and equally why they are the ones that need the most attention when it comes to decluttering and tidying. 

Let’s take a look at a few ways that you can organize your kitchen a bit better. 

One of the quickest tips is about pocket organizers. Most people use pocket organizers on the inside of wardrobes, or on the back of doors, typically for jewelery and accessories. 

You can use one of these on the back of the cupboard door and store cleaning paraphernalia in it. The pockets are the perfect size for holding sponges, scrubbing brushes, gloves and things like disinfectants and so on.

Quite often, the wall spices are very rarely used well. Although there is a rise in some certain Swedish house stores, it has given people a lot of inspiration and options when it comes to maximizing the vertical space they have within the kitchen. It still isn’t something that everybody does. Fix some racks or magnetic strips to the wall around your kitchen.

This space that wouldn’t usually be used can be incredibly useful for the storage of spices and herbs. You can also add bars, and some S hooks, this will allow you to hang up pots and pans and all the utensils. 

If you are sure that you do not want to add them to the wall, then outside of cabinets (not the door), works incredibly well too.

Of course, by this time you are probably looking for a lot of inspiration, NVS Kitchen and Bath is a great place to look - and you might find your want a total remodel. 

Downsizing your appliances, or upgrading to ones with a more plentiful internal storage, and energy rating often comes high up on the list. This might come as a surprise to many, but the chances are even as a large family you are not really using the space you have as well if you could be. Humans, much like magpies like to collect things, but we aren’t always the best are placing them. Parkinson’s law states that we fill up the time that we allocate to a job, even if the job may only take five minutes, will fill the time with unnecessary things. This is the same principle. 

So have a look at how you are using things like the fridge, and the freezer. This might be a great time to improve your Tetris skills, or research how best to store food in the fridge.

Using shelf extenders to give yourself more space is a great idea. Many people assume that adding something extra to a cabinet will detract from the space that you have, but actually, you will be creating more surface area. Therefore you can store more. This tends to work better in cupboards that you would typically use for canned goods, mugs, and other small items. 

If you love to grow herbs but have to go out to the garden to pick them, then you might consider adding some vertical shelving. Rather than smaller racks and asked hooks to consider a trellis-like situation with hoops for holding pots. Or alternatively like you might do in the living room to store books and photographs, fit real shelves.

If you have some small spaces around the kitchen and are not really sure what you can do with them, so now they’re doing nothing. It might be time to think about some rolling storage or a rolling pantry. Not only will you then be making more use of this area. So it can earn its place in the space, but you will be free up at least a cupboard by adding condiments, herbs, spices and other dry goods to it.

Many people find that adding folder racks into cupboards can help with storing things like chopping boards, recipe books, and even some larger cleaning bottles.

It doesn’t take too much to become very organized in the kitchen, but it does take a bit of time and a lot of inspiration. Pinterest is a great place to start looking for how to make the use of vertical areas and smaller kitchens. For most projects, you can DIY things yourself and stay well within any budget you have set.
