3 Principles of an Organized Kitchen

Posted on September 19, 2013. Filed under: Kitchen Cleaning | Tags: , |

Whether you cook frequently or not, the kitchen is probably one of the busiest rooms in your home.

Having an organized kitchen is not about buying a lot of organizing supplies; it is about taking a few guidelines and tailoring them to your specific needs.

Here are 3 guidelines to use as you organize your kitchen.

1. Keep Frequently Used Items Within Reach

The items you use on a daily or weekly basis should be within easy reach. You shouldn’t have to tiptoe or do deep knee bends to find the items that you use every day. This guideline applies to your food, your dishes and your cleaning items.

2. Group Items By Use

This is a deceptively simple idea that yields great dividends. Grouping items by use reduces the frustration of having to walk all over the kitchen to find them. If you drink tea every morning, for example, it makes sense to store the tea next to the sweetener, and the tea-pot relatively close to your tea cups.

3. Leave Space

You do not need to fill every single nook and cranny in your kitchen. In fact, having some clear space rests your eyes.  Your goal should be to leave at least 25% of any space free.

We’d love to hear from you.
