Looking at shelves and cabinets recessed into the walls in areas of your home you use frequently like the study or the kitchen gives you the feeling that the builder did not keep you in mind while chiseling. For instance, shelves and racks in kitchens of most homes are not carved out inappropriately that often leaves too much or little space in between. This inept space use implies that you’d have a hard time keeping items on the shelves in an orderly manner.
So, how’ll you organize kitchen cabinets and shelves in order to keep the cups and saucers from toppling over the next time you reach out for them? The manner in which you use the space day to day will be the key that’ll help you to figure out how to organize kitchen space. Make the most of the following tips for making optimum use of the space in the kitchen.
- You don’t need to pull your hair out trying to think of a way to put the vacant spaces in the shelves to good use. Simply place organizers or standalone stacking shelves in the unused spaces and place crockery, cutleries, and other kitchenware in these free-standing organizers. Whatever room is left after placing the removable stack shelves can be used for placing small containers and pots. Now that’s one intelligent way of taking advantage of idle space on the shelves.
- There are many items and goods that you treasure the most as you’ve received these either as gifts or have been handed down as mementos from generation to generation. Teapots, serviettes, and dinner plates are some kitchen items that need to be handled with care as these usually happen to be brittle. Instead of keeping them on the shelves out in the open you can stash the same away inside a cabinet. Place these items inside drawers in the cabinet.
- The lids and covers of pans or pots could be placed stacking racks.
- Another handy tip to organize kitchen cupboards and cabinets is to place items having similar use or like items together inside a see-through container or bin that has slots inside them.
- You often find yourself at your wits’ end as you’re unable to spot a particular item you need there and then as the same remains inaccessible, hidden from view. You’ll have it much easier if you can tag the bins or holders with the names of the items before replacing these on the shelves in a way so that all of these are visible at a glance.
- Have you ever thought of using the space in front of the cabinet door or at its back? To better organize kitchen cupboards, glue a cork board on the backside of the cabinet door and fix detachable hooks where you can hang spoons, ladles, sieves, knives, forks, and miscellaneous kitchen essentials.
- Cutting boards, meat skewers, and baking trays can be filed away in racks inside a cabinet
- A standalone turntable organizer lets you access a whole range of spices instantly
