Removing clutter is a practice that has gained a lot of notoriety in the past few years. Simplification of life is something that we all strive for in the hectic, fast-paced world that we live in. Our time is of the essence and if you find the kitchen the most important room in the house, it will certainly help to remove some of the clutter and organize this space more effectively. Finding the appropriate solutions to organization is easier these days than in years past. Product lines that specialize in storage and organizing solutions have flourished in recent years and have made the job that much easier for the homeowner who enjoys quality time in the kitchen.
The kitchen is an area that can be broken down into various zones. If you are about to tackle organizing and removing clutter from your kitchen it would make sense to work on one zone at a time. One of those zones that certainly can warrant a lot of attention from most homeowners is the kitchen drawers. Most kitchen drawers are filled with a hodgepodge of various kitchen items such as lemon and line reamers, a garlic press, wooden spoons and forks, whisks, and basically any cooking item you could find in a kitchen. So what is the best way to tackle your disorganized kitchen drawers? Well the best solution is to purchase kitchen drawer organizers. These are specialized items that are typically expandable and they will grow to fit any custom or standard kitchen drawer. They are made of many different materials but wood is probably the most popular. Sometimes they are just dividers that separate various items in your kitchen drawers and can expand to fit any size drawer. But they can be much more elaborate such as a pegboard system that can fit in a deep drawer which will hold dishes, pots, or pans. Dowels or pegs are used to separate the items to prevent damage. These pegs can be placed wherever needed due to the vast number of holes in the pegboard. Talk about a customizable system because the variations are endless.
Another very important zone of a kitchen is the countertop. Counter space in a small kitchen can be very limited so every precaution should be taken to limit what is kept on the kitchen counter. One solution to organizing and removing clutter from your kitchen countertop is to use kitchen canister sets. These storage items can be used to store any number of dry goods and other cooking products. Some typical goods that are stored in the canister sets are flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Other useful dry goods you could store are raisins, coffee, or even bulk spices. The point is that you won’t have to go searching endlessly for your regularly-used kitchen dry goods.
Your kitchen drawers and kitchen countertop are very important zones in your kitchen in which you can make some great strides in removing clutter and organizing. Finding the proper solutions will make your life in the kitchen that much more pleasant and enjoyable.
