Organizing Your Kitchen

Organizing your kitchen should be pretty high up on the list of your

organization projects. Why? Because your "new" kitchen can change the way you and your family functions on a daily basis.

It is the most used room in the home. It is the center of many activities- eating, entertaining, daily family gatherings. Every member of the family uses it.

That being said , it's time to think about ways to organize your kitchen...

Organizing Your Kitchen

  1. The Pantry - This is the food storage area of the kitchen. It is possible to make this area more efficient whether you are using a set of drawers or a walk-in closet for your pantry. When organizing your kitchen make sure you don't miss this section with tips and ideas to organize this space. To learn about organizing your pantry click here.
  2. The Cupboards - This is where you keep the tools and accessories you need to cook on a daily basis. If you find your plastic containers fall out of the cupboard everytime you open it then this is a must read!

  3. The Kitchen Armoire - This is one adaptable piece of furniture. I love armoires and think they are great for storage whether it bee food or cooking supplies like dishes or pots and pans. To find out how to use an armoire for storage click here.
  4. Recipes - Over the years I have accumulated many recipes and frankly was running out of space to keep them anymore. To find solutions to your disorganized recipes click here.
When organizing think about the activities besides cooking will be taking place in the space. Also, keep in mind the ages of everyone using the kitchen on a daily basis. How can you make it more convenient for everyone to get the most out of the space? The effectiveness of your kitchen depends on how well your space is organized. Your kitchen is the biggest asset to your home. It is the most sought after room in the home when buying a new home.

So, when organizing your kitchen start off with a workable plan. Once you have done this you can do a new project every day or week if you are short on time. Organize your pantry one week and the cupboards the next for example. But the best thing you could do is start - make that first step and the rest will follow. The result?? A functional,organized space that the whole family will enjoy.
