Necessary Stuff Only
Kitchen is supposed to be a kitchen and not a full fledged store room. Therefore confine it to store only the essential stuff. That way you will remove the clutter which if present would give a not so decent picture of the kitchen. Every now and then you will come across wrappers, empty food packets, empty frozen food tins, plastic pet bottles that have run out of beverage and other such stuff in the kitchen. Do not let it accumulate in the kitchen. As a part of your daily cleaning remove all these stuff. Make sure you throw away any expired food items that rest in your kitchen cabinets.
Use Storage Carts
I am a big fan of storage carts as kitchen cabinet organizers, especially for small kitchens. They serve as a work table for you providing extra work area on one hand and on the other work out well as storage units that can house some of your boxes and jars. They can be moved around, therefore are very flexible when it comes to placement in the kitchen.
Speciality Work Stations
Do you love baking or may be you love non vegetarian stuff? Then why don’t you set up a speciality counter or workstation for that? For example a speciality station for all your baking needs would house all the ingredients in well designed shelves while doubling up as a table on which you can carry out your baking activity. This way it’s possible to organize all your baking needs at one place that can be easily accessible.
Mobile Craft Center
This is for the thoughtful parent in you. We know children just love being in the kitchen around Moms, so why not dedicate some cabinets to store their stuff in the kitchen. There are specially designed cabinets for this purpose. Usually these cabinets can be taken out completely so that children can take all their belongings along with the cabinets. These can easily house picture books, notebooks, color pens and any other kid stuff you could think of.
Use Kitchen Volume
Kitchen surface area for storage is limited. Therefore it is a great idea to make use of the kitchen volume to maximize your storage space. You can always make good use of the kitchen height. Get some hanging kitchen cabinet organizers that will help you store stuff by hanging them on to the wall.
Thoughtful kitchen owners shop wisely while buying stiff for the kitchen. So next time you buy for your kitchen give its storage options a thought. Now days utensils are available in sets. Each utensil is of different volume and so manufactured that it will go inside another utensil of the same set. This will save you a lot of floor space.
Hope you have a good time organizing your kitchen with the ideas mentioned above.
