It doesn’t matter how spacious or small the kitchen you have, keeping it clean and organized is the real task!
In the kitchen we come and go many times a day, we keep clean or unclean dishes on the countertops, there is a lot of water work to clean those dishes too many times a day. We have food items or ingredients kept in bottles, on the shelves, and different spots. Because of these things, there is often a mess that keeps swaying there.
Along with keeping those countertops and dishes clean, organizing and arranging kitchen stuff also influences its structure. Here are some basic storage ideas you wish you’d known earlier to organize the entire space keeping your kitchen neat and clean.
A Towel Rack Against The Wall
As you need to do a lot of cleaning from the countertops and shelves now and then, a paper towel is a must-have thing in your kitchen. If you already have a paper towel rack on the counter, switch it to the wall. Use a rack that you can stick to the wall to have more counter space.
Holder For Cutlery, Cooking, And Eating Utensils
Leaving those old ladles and fainted forks and spoons, knives with slight dents on the shelves surely don’t give a fine look to the kitchen. Who would want to waste the whole effort of putting things in an organized way by leaving them free? Of course, no one. Keep utensil holders so all that stuff stays in one place and replace those old cutlery sets with a new one with modern style forks and spoons, really good knives, and burnt-free ladles.
Garbage Can Under The Sink
A garbage container laying in the corner with no lid is a step back from cleanliness. And if it has a lid, it looks unpleasant. Keep the garbage can hidden under the sink cabinet to save the corner space, keeping your kitchen clean and safe from filthy crumbs.
A Convenient Spot For Cutting Board
Almost everyone keeps their cutting boards on the top of counters or hangs them against the wall. What if there is another cool idea to manage this wooden slate in a more organized way? Pull-out trays will be a cool addition in this regard. Insert those trays inside the countertops and pull them out whenever you need to cut your veggies and meat stuff.
Tiny Compartments For Spice Bottles
If your spice containers on the top of counters are too many in numbers and are occupying a whole space, you might wish to shift them all away in the upper cabinets. But these little flakes are used more frequently and if you put them away it will be a little irritating for you to reach for them every time you are cooking or adding flavors to your meals. inserting small compartment racks behind the counters and against the wall that matches the backsplash will be a great solution.
Adjustable Plates And Cups Organizer
Although you have large cabinets inside the kitchen, still there are some tiny pots and plates that are used more after every hour, and taking them out and putting them back inside the cabinets, again and again, is a kind of pain. You can’t keep them on the counters either. So keep them in the adjustable organizers to free up space from that stack.
No Piles Inside The Cabinet
Some people like to keep their cooking pots hidden and insert them over one another inside the cabinet as a pile. Sometimes many platters inside a single cabinet with no proper arrangement won’t portray a good image if any guest sees it by any chance. If your kitchen is looking well organized from the outside, make sure you keep it organized from the inside too. If your pots are pretty, hang them on a hanging rack and keep expandable organizers in the cabinet to organize the sets of plates and saucers.
Hidden Spot For Cleaning Stuff
Instead of keeping the cleaning stuff like dirty sponges and dishwashers under the spotlight for everyone to see, make a hidden spot or keep them inside sneaky spots where you can reach them easily without displaying them. Keep other cleaning supplies such as swipers and mobs inside the empty cabinet for clean surroundings.
