Home Improvement / June 28, 2019
Making your kitchen cabinets well-organized has its benefits. For one, you get to save time because you can easily locate every item you need. Also, it makes it easier for you to shop for groceries and plan and cook your meals. Cleaning is a breeze as well, especially if everyone is used to items being in the same storage area all the time.
Handyman Connection® of Grapevine, home of your local home improvement and maintenance pros, shares some of the valuable organization tips to help you get the most out of your kitchen cabinets.
Removing Clutter From Your Cabinets
Decluttering is the most important step in organizing your kitchen cabinets. You must do this prior to purchasing storage solutions, restructuring your existing cabinets or rearranging all the items. Be sure to have your trash container ready for items you want to dispose of and a large box for items you wish to donate or sell.
Sorting and Arranging Items Into the Cabinets
Organize the contents of your kitchen cabinets as soon as you finished with the decluttering. Separate foodstuffs from utensils, cookware and dishes, maximizing the sections of each cabinet. You can also break down items into categories to make it easier for you to use the kitchen.
Storing Items in the Cabinets
Group similar items together, organizing them into zones. Upper cabinets are often used to store food, glasses and dishes, cookbooks and food storage containers. Cookware, cleaning supplies and appliances, meanwhile, go to the bottom cabinets. Be sure to place your frequently used items to the front for easy reach.
Maintaining Your Organized Kitchen Cabinets
Go through your cabinets about two or three times a year, and get your stored items organized anew. For this, take advantage of a monthly organization plan to get you started. Every week, you can also perform 30-minute decluttering sweeps.
