5 Easy Tips for Organizing a Kitchen

It’s no easy task when you’re faced with limited cabinet space and way more seasonings than you’d like to admit. However, even the smallest kitchen doesn’t have to feel cramped. Here are our top 5 tips for organizing a kitchen.

First, start by decluttering for a blank slate

Focus on one cupboard or drawers, remove everything, wipe it out, and put back only the essentials. You can always add things back later if there’s room, so be merciless. We recommend downsizing on mugs you no longer love, anything you have duplicates of, is broken, and any cooking gadgets you were gifted in 2012 and have been hanging onto out of guilt/obligation.

Next, assign everything a “home”

Designate a specific place for every item in your kitchen to live permanently. Otherwise, items tend to float around, eventually landing on countertops since no one knows where to put them. This adds to the clutter and becomes a stressor.

Minimize countertop clutter

Every magazine kitchen photo has something in common – clear countertops. While you probably use your coffee maker and knife block daily, most other appliances and accessories will look better hidden out of sight. Store infrequently used appliances in cabinets or a pantry to keep counters free of clutter.

Organizing a kitchen: stackable containers

If you’re having a hard time making everything fit comfortably, consider upping your storage game. Use clear, stackable containers for dry goods like pasta, rice, and flour. Actually, this also keeps them fresher, longer. Additionally, they keep your pantry looking neat and make it easy to see when you’re running low on essential ingredients. Drawer dividers, labels, and storage bins also make a big difference in keeping your space tidy.
