As we found out recently from our poll in stories, the kitchen is the most important room for almost every family. That’s why it’s very important to have it not only well designed but also very comfortable and convenient for cooking and spending time. Today we prepared for you some tips and tricks on how to organize your kitchen.
You must have heard about the kitchen work triangle that lies between the oven, fridge, and sink that makes moving in the kitchen easy for the cook. To make the process of cooking comfortable, think of your kitchen in terms of work zones: food storage, dishware storage, cleanup (sink and dishwasher), prep, and cooking zone and store items in accordance with their related zone.
It’s very important not only to divide your kitchen into zones but also to position the items within each zone correctly. Store the items that are most frequently used at eye level and the ones that are less used further away. If you cannot reach something easily, you are less likely to use it.
Also exploit the rule: “first in-first out”. Put the newest boxes and containers behind what’s already open.
Storing your dry products in containers can help you create a uniform look in your pantry along with fast access and a clear understanding of what is inside.
Integrating appliances such as dishwashers or microwaves into a kitchen island can be a real game-changer and save a lot of space. Installing a sink may also contribute to making the cooking process faster and easier.
Here are just a few ideas on how to organize your existing kitchen effectively and get the most out of it.
