The kitchen is the heart of the home, so when planning a decluttering and organizing project it is commonly a priority on the list. What is the most common pain point in kitchens? For most people it is the kitchen cabinets. Read this blog to find steps in organizing kitchen cabinets and more.
In order to get a good idea of what stays and what goes, pull everything out of your kitchen cabinets. Once everything is out of your cabinets, sort through all of the items to determine what should stay and what goes. Any duplicate items, broken or damaged items, or things you simply don’t need should be donated, sold or thrown out.
Before putting anything back into your cabinets, clean each cabinet. Wipe them down to remove any dust or debris inside.
To protect your dishes and glasses from any scratches and nicks, use shelf liner in your cabinets. Shelf liner will also help to make your cabinets look more organized.
There may be some items that are cluttering your cabinets that you can store somewhere else. For example, pots and pans can be hung on wall hooks. This will help to free up more space in your cabinets.
In order to maximize available storage space, always take advantage of vertical storage space. For example, consider adding half shelves inside of the cupboards to store smaller items.
To minimize the amount of work you need to do to find items you use often, store kitchen items near the location you use them. For example, keep all of the pots, pans and other cooking items near the stove. You’ll thank yourself for following this tip time and time again.
One of the reasons kitchen cabinets get disorganized is because they’re hard to reach. To keep your kitchen organized, investing in pull-out cabinet organizers is a must. Pull out cabinet organizers will allow you to easily find, store and organize pots, pans and more.
To keep similar items together, group them in bins. Small storage bins can be purchased at any organization store and can be used to store sponges, extra silverware, snacks and more.
To prevent injury and damage to your belongings, never put heavy items on high shelves. Keep heavy items at eye level where they are easy to find and don’t strain your back lifting.
To keep your cabinets organized going forward, it’s important to realize that an organization project never ends. As your cabinets start to look too cluttered, spend time organizing again.
