The kitchen is one of the most used areas in the home. In some homes, the kitchen is the central location for family meals, kids doing homework and art projects, and for housewives to enjoy cups of coffee. With all these buzz of activities sometimes the kitchen can get a little disorganized.
The trick to organizing a kitchen is simply constant tidying up paired with some great kitchen organization ideas and suggestions. The following suggestions of kitchen organization products will help you make your kitchen look like out of a decor magazine.
The kitchen sink is one area that tends to get cluttered with sponges and brushes and bottle of hand soap. What you can do is to look for pretty trays or small containers where you can place your brushes and sponges. Your hand soap will look better in a clear glass dispenser.
All these items can be purchased from your home improvement stores or even at flea markets. These will give your kitchen sink a more uncluttered and unified look. The same can be done with your dishwashing liquid. Stored in glass bottles, they look more attractive and can be stored outside instead of under your sink.
Have you seen photos of chefs in their kitchens and how they have all those pots and pans hanging about? Well, you can do the same too. You don’t need a large area to do this; a small corner will do just fine. All you need to do is install a handrail and then use several S-hooks to hang your pots and pans. Your kitchen will look more attractive.
If the area near your stove is littered with bottles of oil, salt and pepper mills, little bottles of condiments and spices, then you can place all these small items onto a tray. A simple paperboard tray works as well as a shallow baking tray. This way, everything will be in one organized tray. Spills will be easier to clean too.
When storing spices and condiments, you could try storing them all in glass jars or canning jars. These make them look uniformed compared to storing them in their actual packaging. You can even identify the spices or condiments easily. These jars arranged in your cabinet or pantry will look fantastic.
If you are doing your bit for the environment and have a corner where you stack all your paper, glass, aluminum and wastes, you can make this place look more attractive with a recycling corner. Use attractive containers or baskets for your rubbish and label these containers. These will look more attractive than a heap of garbage in your kitchen.
These simple ways of organizing your kitchen will help make it more attractive.
