Cabinets are an essential item in every kitchen. The primary purpose of cabinets is to store all cooking utensils and food items efficiently.
Yet, no matter how many times we clean our kitchen cabinets, they turn into a mess. A cluttered cabinet doesn’t just look bad, it also causes a lot of disruptions when cooking.
If you are struggling to keep your cabinets in order, here are some tips that will make your life easier:
First step, take everything out of your cabinet. Place all the items on the kitchen counter. Next step, go through all your items carefully and decide which one to keep and which ones to let go of.
Items you don’t need, rarely use or those that have crossed their expiration dates, get rid of them. If you do not want to toss them out, you can donate or recycle them.
Divide all your cabinet items into groups. This is the simplest and most practical way to place things in cabinets. For example, all pantry items will go in one area, while spices in another, and so on.
But, keep food and appliances and utensils separately. Generally speaking, dishes and appliances are used daily and should be within easy reach. On the contrary, keep your silverware set somewhere a bit out of the way.
How to organize items
If you want to make the most of your kitchen cabinet space, follow these simple tips:
Deep drawers are easy to use and are great for storing pots, pans and other items.
Consider installing sliding shelves in your cabinets. Store salt, pepper and other spices in these shelves. You can easily pull your shelf out while cooking.
If you have a large kitchen cabinet, install dividers. Adding dividers will make it easier to access the contents of your cabinet. All items will be in place as well.
Finally, keep heavy utensils, such as pots and pans in the bottom cabinet, while glass dinnerware in the top cabinet to avoid breakage.
