Tips to organise your kitchen
In many households, the kitchen is the centre of attention and a common gathering place for family and friends. As the heart of any home, the kitchen is often where great food and memories are made.
To ensure a stylish and uncluttered kitchen, it’s important to have a minimalist approach. Keeping your kitchen simple is a lot easier than you think. With a few organisational tips, you’ll be able to turn your kitchen into a more functional area.
Use these five tips to help improve the organisation of your kitchen:
- Minimise your appliances
Start by decluttering and getting rid of appliances which are no longer in use. There is no need for two of the same items! Kitchen gadgets and utensils can seem to multiply overnight, but you can only really use one thing at a time. Decide if you really need 40 coffee mugs or wine glasses, or more than one set of measuring cups or salt and pepper shakers.
- Clear all counters
The purpose of a kitchen counter is to make or cook meals and is not a place for storing things. Make sure to clean up after you’re done and always pack the dishes away. Your kitchen counters aren’t a place to sort mail or store other odds and ends.
- Pack things back where they belong
This is actually the easiest task, but one everyone seems to overlook, resulting in clutter building up in the kitchen or items disappearing. Designate a place for each appliance, dish and utensil, and always make sure to return them to their spot. Put your go-to items in the same place – these are items you use daily.
- Make your kitchen appealing
It’s essential to design a kitchen space that works for you. Your kitchen is a place to appreciate and enjoy. Create a kitchen that reflects your cooking and dining habits. Let your kitchen space allow you to be you. Make sure to keep the area clean as this is the area where you cook your food.
