4 Tips for Maximising Storage and Keeping Your Kitchen Organised
Storage space seems to be something all homes could use more of. Think of your pots and pans, for example. When you first moved into your home, you organised them neatly. But perhaps you accrued more over time, or simply let the issue of storage slip away from you. Before you know it, everything ends up stacked on top of everything else. Don't give up the fight. It is time to make your space work smarter, not harder. Let’s rethink those nooks and crannies, and the way things are currently organised. Let's maximise your use of space.
Organise by activity.
This is something you might already be practising in your wardrobe, but guess what? It also works in the kitchen! For example, keep all your coffee cups on one cabinet shelf, your bar glasses on another, and your everyday glasses on another. This will help you to keep your space neat and tidy, and will also help you do a quick visual inventory when purchasing more kitchen items.
Use vertical separators.
Vertical separators allow you to organise things by size, colour, or usage. What's more, you'll be able to keep everything nicely in order, rather than stacked on top of each other. This organisation method is especially useful for a cabinet that stores cutting boards, cookie sheets, and other large, flat pans.
Add stackable shelf risers.
Dishes and pans can only be stacked so high before things start to feel unorganised. And unfortunately, most cabinets seem to fall short when it comes to the permanent shelving options inside. But don't worry, there's still a solution that is quick and simple: shelf risers. Plastic shelf risers that have collapsible legs are designed to be utilised inside your cabinets and to be stacked on top of each other. They fit together easily, don't require any hardware or technical installation, and can be moved or removed with no damage to the inside of your cabinets.
Implement a label system.
Yes, this involves a little bit of a DIY project in the beginning, but this can be a great way to keep your kitchen organised once you have it all rearranged. The days of digging through the cabinets wondering which spice is which and where it came from are over. What are some other pro tips you use to keep your kitchen clean, organised and clutter-free?
