Tired of your kitchen drawers always getting jammed due to overflowing utensils and junk-drawer items? Or how about your pantry spilling out onto the counters because there’s simply not enough room? We know the frustration and exhaustion that comes from trying to stay organized with inadequate storage space. That’s why, at Quality Closet Connection, we’re passionate about helping chefs discover new possibilities with our storage solutions and custom closets in Alpharetta.
Oftentimes, spices, food items, and more get shuffled around or pushed to the back while you’re searching for something in a cramped space. Then, when you can’t find that ingredient that’s hidden behind everything, you pick another one up at the store, creating more clutter. It’s a vicious cycle. Take a look at most professional kitchens and you’ll find they inventory and keep track of everything.
If things seem to frequently go missing in your kitchen, it’s time to pull everything out of the pantry, cabinets, and drawers and go through it. This step can be intimidating for some, so it might be best for you to do it one section at a time. Once you have everything out on the floor, we recommend sorting the items into three groups:
With your storage areas empty, now is a great time to vacuum and wipe down those previously-unreachable spots. Reorganizing feels much better when everything is clean as you’re putting things back.
Next, before you start putting things back where you pulled them from, we recommend thinking hard and collaborating with your partner about where you want things to be located. For example, you probably don’t use your stand mixer every day, so that can be put somewhere that’s out of the way. On the other hand, plates, and bowls should be easily accessible because they get used so often.
Multiple studies on clutter in the home and the effects that clutter has on the home’s occupants have concluded that “homes are dynamic in nature and organization must be carried out with users’ preferences in mind.” This whole process is about meeting your household’s needs, so do what works best for you.
So, naturally, grouping similar items together is key to getting and staying organized, but be sure to put items in locations that make sense for your household.
Sometimes, in order to achieve an organized and cohesive kitchen, new hardware is necessary. You can find countless tips and tricks online for working with the limited space that came with the house, but Quality Closet Connection can solve your storage headaches without the use of gimmicks.
