Efficient Kitchen Layout Cooking is fun, especially when nothing gets in your way. Therefore, keep your kitchen tidy and maintain cleanliness. Keep your countertop as clear as possible to ensure workspace availability. A kitchen cupboard overflowing with items can be overwhelming. You lose track of things, and some items might even be out of date or duplicated.
Tidying Up the Kitchen Where do you start when you want to tidy up your kitchen?
First, empty all the kitchen cabinets, starting with the top ones. Create a cleaning solution in a bucket with all-purpose cleaner and thoroughly wash the cabinets. Once you’ve organised the top cabinets, move on to the lower ones. Consider which items you use daily and return these to the cabinets. Store the rest away. If you don’t want to dispose of them and have enough space, you can keep them in a crate. Don’t stack different types of plates on top of each other. Instead, make separate stacks for each type – breakfast, soup, and dinner plates. You can also buy handy cabinet racks for this purpose. Arrange all mug and glass handles in the same direction; this saves a lot of space in the cabinet. Store infrequently used items like baking supplies in one cabinet. Alternatively, put them in a crate and remove them from the kitchen entirely. Avoid stacking pans. Place the ones you use daily at the front. You can stack storage containers and oven dishes, but keep the items you use weekly at the front for easy access. Review items you never use. If they are still new or usable, consider selling them online or donating them to a charity shop. Organised Kitchen Your kitchen works best when everything is in the right place. Organise your utensils by function so similar groups are together. Keep spices, oils, and seasonings within reach of your cooking area, and chopping boards and knives near your countertop. Store your pantry items in glass jars. A pantry full of glass jars is not only pleasing to the eye but also practical as you can easily see what you have. Organise your kitchen utensil drawer. Stores like IKEA sell handy drawer dividers so you can easily see where everything is. Keep items you use daily like spatulas and ladles in a pot next to your cooker for easy access. Maximise your wall space. If you have limited cabinet space, use your walls. Hang pans on hooks along a rail, for instance. Group similar objects together. For example, nest cooking pots and stack frying pans with protectors in between. Store your knives on a magnetic strip to keep them sharp and save drawer space. Storing Pan Lids Use a magazine rack to store your lids. Hang it on an unused wall, the inside of a cabinet, or the door of your pantry. Install hooks or a rack to hang kitchen utensils and towels. Ensure that all essentials for cooking on the stove or baking in the oven are easily accessible. Consider a storage trolley in your kitchen for extra space if your cabinets are full.
