Whether your kitchen is eight feet by eight feet or twenty feet by twenty feet, it needs organization. And thankfully, the tools for organizing your kitchen can be found in many sizes. If you have a smaller kitchen, some of the handiest kitchen storage items are shelf inserts, and over the door shelves. These maximize the storage capacity of each cabinet. I personally like the over the door holder for my aluminum foil and plastic wrap.
A kitchen does not just have to function well as a place to prepare food, but also as a space where it is stored. A lack of properly organized kitchen storage is the number one complaint that most people have about their kitchens.
You would be amazed at how much space you have in cupboards and drawers once you start utilizing the right kind of kitchen storage. It may seem like a daunting task at first but it will streamline the way you work within your kitchen. When you combine this method with other forms of kitchen storage plastic bag dispensers, spice organizers, silver wear organizers you find that you are much more at home in your own kitchen space. This kind of organization can have a profound impact on how happy you are to work within your kitchen space.
Get Rid of Excess The kitchen holds some types of items that are notorious for being in excess. Coffee cups, glasses, plates, bowls, and silverware have a tendency to pile up without anyone ever noticing. One of the fastest ways to get more space in your kitchen is to only keep a limited number of these items and getting rid of the rest. Sure, it is nice to have a matching set of coffee mugs for when company is over and those novelty mugs are just too funny to get rid of, but your space is limited. If you have a household of four people that drink coffee on a daily basis, there is no reason to have more than eight coffee cups.
A good rule of thumb that can be applied to coffee cups, glasses, plates, and bowls is that you only need enough to for two full days. Yes, this means that you need to do dishes every other day, but if you normally cook at least one meal a day, you will be doing the dishes anyways. Additionally, you only need one set of silverware, not three. If you want to keep a set of dishes and silverware for special occasions, that is fine, but they do not need to be on the shelves in your kitchen.
In order to reclaim some space in your kitchen, you need to get rid of everything that you no longer use, or do not belong there in the first place. If there are a few items that you simply cannot bear to throw away, find another storage place for it, such as a basement or attic, even the garden shed. Just make sure that it is somewhere else other than taking up room in your kitchen that could be put to better use.
