If you’ve lived in the same place for a while, you may start to realize that the inevitable has happened: your kitchen has become cluttered and unorganized. It can happen in the blink of an eye without you even noticing. Organizing your kitchen can be extremely helpful; you can find all of your cooking tools quicker, and just the simple fact that it looks nicer. Below, we’ve compiled some helpful tips to reorganize your kitchen!
Pull Everything Out
The best place to start when organizing your kitchen is to pull everything out of the cabinets and drawers. From there, you’ll want to go through everything and get rid of the things that are unnecessary. You may have unneeded pots and pans, Tupperware, cooking utensils, or other kitchen items. A couple of ways to get rid of these items is to try and sell pots and pans if they’re in good condition. You could also choose to donate them, as thrift stores are always looking for used cooking tools.
If you’ve already pulled out all of the items in your cupboards and drawers, it’s a good idea to do a deep clean while it’s all out. A great option to save you some time is to call a professional cleaning service. With their experience, they will be able to make sure your kitchen is spotless. Cleaning while everything is out of the drawers makes sure you aren’t putting clean dishes back into a dirty drawer and will help your dishes stay clean in the future.
Designate Areas for Different Items
When putting everything back into the cupboards, you should designate a specific area for different categories of items. You should put all dishes such as plates, bowls, cups, and other things you will use every day close to the dishwasher. This helps when putting away dishes as you won’t have to move around as much. You should have separate areas for all your pots and pans, eating utensils, Tupperware, etc.
It’s also a good idea to keep food separate from dishes. Spices shouldn’t be in the same cabinet as your plates and bowls. If you are hurting for space, there are great alternative options to a cabinet such as a spice rack hanging from your wall. Keeping everything in a designated area is key to keeping your kitchen organized.
After you’ve reorganized your kitchen, make sure everyone in the household knows the designated spots for everything. If everyone is on board with it and knows the designated spots, it will help keep it organized for a longer period of time. A regular deep cleaning is something that will keep your kitchen looking neat and organized. That’s where The Clean-Up Crew comes in!
