Make Space in Your Kitchen with Cabinet Storage

Kitchen Cabinet

Kitchens can become extremely cluttered very quickly and in the blink of an eye you looking at a nightmare of a mess. As we all know, it’s easier to just maintain something then to rather start all over again.

As one of the most-used rooms in your home, the state of your kitchen can mean the difference between a hectic morning and a sunny start to your day. Forget digging through crowded cupboards and overstuffed drawers. Rethink what you put in your cabinets and where you position them then you can save a ton of time and frustration.

Like, everything. Pull out every last sippy cup, shelf liner and sauce packet, and pile it on a table or counter. This will help you see what you have and, perhaps more importantly, what you don’t need.

Use a damp cloth to get the dirt and crumbs out of all the nooks and crannies and tackle any splatters by adding a little dish soap to the mix. For gunk stuck on shelf surfaces, gently scrub with warm water and an all-purpose brush, moving bristles in small circles. When you’re done, go back over all the surfaces with a clean, dry cloth to prevent any residual water damage.

Free up cupboard space by getting rid of any long-expired spices or defective appliances.

Reserve one cabinet or section of shelves just for food, then organize this space by daily consumables (biscuits, nuts, dried fruit) versus cooking needs (flour, sugar, baking soda).

Go through your DIY kitchen units contents and think about what you really use them for. Do your cookie sheets see more roasted veggies than baked goods? Then they should go with the frying pans, not the cake pans. When you organize kitchen items by what they do (not what they are), you’ll have everything you need for a given task in the same place.
