Miscellaneous Kitchen Organization Tips
Wade through the assortment of tips below for some things which just might prove very helpful to you as you work in your kitchen. From decluttering to decorating, organizing to cost-cutting, these various tips are worth noting.
Use fruits both as food and décor.
A bowl of fresh fruits livens up the kitchen in much the same way that a vase of fresh flowers does. And the difference is that fruits—unlike flowers-- are edible.
Think high up.
Use as much vertical space as you can to save floor space in your kitchen. Shelves that stretch all the way up to the ceiling also streamline the look of a kitchen.
Make a user manual and warranty box.
Stash those user manuals and warranty certificates into a single box for future use. You’ll never know when your kitchen gadgets will bog down and you’ll be needing those papers.
Use a lazy susan for storing spices, oils and vinegars.
You can much more easily grab the herbs and oils you need if you store them in a lazy susan. This handy storage tool is also easier to clean and easy on the eyes as well.
Display beautiful plates on open shelves.
Those rarely-used large and colorful platters can double up as kitchen décor if you display them open-faced on open shelves. They can simply be taken down if needed for entertaining.
Buy dishes of the same size and color.
Dishes that are of the same size are easier to stack and store. And when they are of the same color as well, they look pretty when displayed in a glass shelf.
Keep your kitchen corkboard small.
A kitchen corkboard is useful for pinning up recipes, menus, receipts, grocery lists and bills. But it can easily become an eyesore when full. If you buy a small one, however, it looks much less cluttered.
Use command hooks to hang small items.
Measuring spoons, rubber bands, scissors and can openers have a way of getting lost in junk drawers. But if they are hung from command hooks on cabinet doors, they are easily seen.
Post a supplies list on your ref and pantry.
Having master lists posted on the ref door and pantry makes inventory and grocery list-making hassle-free. You simply go through the list quickly and take note of the dwindling supplies before heading to the grocery.
Choose hardcover cookbooks.
Hard-bound cookbooks are much easier to prop up so you can easily follow recipes as you cook. Hardcover cookbooks also look better when displayed on open shelving. And of course, they last longer, too.
