These are just a few of the many ways you can start to organize what many people consider the most important area of the home.
Hang Up Your Measuring Spoons and Cups
If you’re like most people, you probably have a hodgepodge of measuring spoons and cups jumbled up in one of your kitchen drawers. One thing you can do to organize this mess is to hang them on hooks you install on the inside of a cabinet door.
The only downside to this tip is that the spoons and cups are going to make a lot of noise when you open that door. They might make so much of a racket, in fact, that it could be fairly startling. One way to keep that from being a problem is to install some corkboard first, then put in the hooks. It will make things a whole lot quieter.
Use a Tension Rod Under Your Sink
Most people don’t give a lot of thought to the space below the kitchen sink, and for good reason. This area is usually “out of sight, out of mind,” unless you need to quickly grab a cleaning product, or whatever else you normally keep there. But you could actually put this space to use in more ways than one.
Measure the space from one end of the cabinet to the other, then go to your local hardware store and get a tension rod that will fit. Add hooks to the rod to hang things like scrub brushes (provided they have holes in the handle, of course) and spray bottles. You could even get a little creative and hang an old mug you no longer drink from to keep your sponges organized.
Store Your Small Appliances Together
Do you have things like a toaster, a blender, a mixer, etc., that you rarely use? More than likely, they’re just taking space on your counter that you could use for something else. Art of Drawers can design a storage solution using a lifting door that can provide easy access to all of these items and more.
The more organized your kitchen, the more joy you’ll get out of using it to cook. If your small appliances are cluttering up your counter, or they’re so hard to find that they’re simply not worth the effort, then you might wind up deciding not to prepare some of the meals you and your family love. Using the space in your counters to store and organize appliances can make those days a thing of the past.
Use Trays to Organize Counters
Whether you’re planning your dream kitchen, or you’re just trying to rejuvenate your existing kitchen, clutter is something you just don’t want to experience. Think about arranging similar items on trays, things like utensils, or spices or cooking oils. Once you do this, not only will everything look better, it will also help you clear out clutter.
The reasoning is simple. If something doesn’t fit on a tray, either try to find a new home for it, or just throw it away. You’ll be surprised how much space this simple solution will create on your countertops. You also don’t have to spend a whole lot of money. You probably won’t have a hard time finding some good deals on trays. There’s probably a good chance you can find a really nice selection of them at a garage sale.
One thing you might want to think of once you get the trays home is to get rid of the little stickers on the bottom. Just use a little bit of goo remover and those stickers should easily come off in one piece.
Utilize Cabinet Drawers
Just about everybody has a junk drawer in their kitchen, something filled with can and bottle openers, fridge magnets, and just about anything else you can think of. Or, all of your drawers are filled to the brim with things you use on an everyday basis, and you just don’t have room for anything else.
You actually have more room than you think – and Art of Drawers can help you make the most of it.
There’s space inside your cabinets that is just going to waste. You might not know that there’s a very good chance there’s enough space to fit drawers. These drawers can fit in a regular cabinet, a corner cabinet, or even under the sink if you don’t have room to hang things off of a tension rod.
We can even design drop-down drawers that will do even a better job of helping you optimize your space. It basically folds out, and provides plenty of room to store some of the items you use in your kitchen day in and day out. Drawer dividers can help you organize even more.
