If you want to function in the kitchen then the only way is to keep it organized. Nothing is worse than having to work in a messy, disorganized kitchen with bits and bobs laying all over the place.
Not only is it difficult to cook in a messy kitchen, but it is also challenging to find things. So, to avoid all this, it is crucial that the kitchen is kept tidy and organized at all times.
Keeping all this in mind, we have created the top five tips to help you to keep your kitchen fully organized and neat. Let's go and take a look at it.
Use of transparent jars for the junk drawers
We are all familiar with that drawer in the kitchen that holds all kinds of necessary junk items. This drawer holds the things that come in handy but is so messy to the point that it is a quest to find anything in there when you really need it.
Here is an idea, bring some small transparent jars with lids and fill each of them up with all the similar category items and then sort them out in the drawer.
This trick will help you to save a lot of space inside the drawer and also make room for other items. Plus, you will be able to find things more easily around the kitchen.
Sort the cutting boards in a magazine holder
Have cutting boards laying aimlessly on the kitchen counter and taking up all the space and messing things up? Well, worry no more, as we know just what you should do.
It is not a great look for the kitchen counter when you just let your cutting boards lay anywhere haphazardly. Plus, this eats up a lot of workspace in the kitchen.
So, what you have to do is, bring in a magazine holder and put all of your slicing or cutting boards in that. Magazine holders can easily hold your cutting boards and give your kitchen an organized look plus make a lot of space for you to work in.
Keep measuring spoons in a transparent jar near the stove
This is a great tip that will not only organize the kitchen but will also help you to access the measuring spoons easily whenever you need it as you won't have to waste time finding them as all you measuring spoons will be stacked in one single place.
Well not just that, it looks really good when you keep the spoons in the jar and adds a dainty touch to the kitchen.
Use hooks around the kitchen to hang accessories and other useful items
Using hooks that can be stuck with the walls around the kitchen is a great way to clean up a disorganized kitchen.
You can hang pots and large spoons or other items in these hooks instead of letting them sit idly in the kitchen top blocking space.
Store all your small spice jars in a large cake pan
This is one of our favorite tricks, to keep the kitchen organized and also to ease up the work around the kitchen while cooking.
Keeping spice jars in a single cake pan will not only organize the kitchen but will also help you cook as all the spices you need will be stacked in one single place.
Nothing feels better than working in an organized kitchen. The above tips will allow you to make more space and store more useful items.
Plus a clean and tidy kitchen is much more fun to work in as you can easily grab the things you need without wasting time to find them from a pile of objects.
