Do you struggle with keeping your kitchen organized? We know it can be difficult, especially with children and family members digging through the pantry or putting dishes back in the wrong cabinet. To help you stay organized, we’ve broken down our favorite tips and tricks for kitchen organization below!
The trick to keeping your pantry organized is to give every item a clear place, so everything ends up back where it belongs. To do this, we recommend grouping items together and having a clear storage system. Our custom pantry storage systems make this easy! With rotating and extending shelves, you can have easy access to snacks, cereals, and ingredients. Our custom spice racks will make cooking the perfect dinner a breeze. We can even install a wine rack in your pantry! Shelves and dividers can also help you create enough storage for all the contents of your pantry.
Have you heard of “intuitive eating”? Try intuitive organizing! That means putting the contents of your cabinets in intuitive places – places that make the most sense. Keep everyday cooking utensils on-hand, such as in an easy-to-reach drawer or even hung above the stove. Everyday plates and bowls should be grouped together in main cabinets, while baking accessories, pots, and pans can be stored in more out-of-the-way spots. Bigger, infrequently used appliances can also be stored away to keep your kitchen counters clear.
To keep your fridge organized, we recommend cleaning it out at least once a month. This ensures that your fridge doesn’t get cluttered with expired food and leftovers. Keep produce and other quick-to-spoil items in easy to reach drawers, where they’ll stay fresh longer. Group meat and cheeses together, and be sure to freeze meat you don’t plan on using within a few days. Leftovers should take center-stage in your fridge to ensure they’re eaten, rather than being forgotten in the back of the fridge.
