The kitchen is one of the most frequented areas of your home and as such, keeping things in order is a never ending battle. You can declutter and organize your kitchen as many times as you want, only for it to become disorganized again soon enough. This can be baffling to some homeowners as they have no idea what they’re doing wrong. The answer to this is actually quite simple: kitchen organization mistakes.
In this post, The Kitchen Store, the pros to go to if you need a kitchen remodeling expert, reveals the kitchen organization mistakes that you should never make.
Too Many Appliances on the Counter
The counter is the area in the kitchen where we place most of our small appliances such as the microwave, rice cooker, coffee maker and others. However, doing so can take up too much space on the counter that it’ll start to look cluttered in the long run. The solution to this dilemma is simple. Ask yourself how long it’s been since you last used some of the appliances on the counter. If it’s been a while, then it might be best to put them away for future use or donate them if you have no plans of using them any longer.
Incorrect Use of Vertical Storage
One of the main reasons why homeowners fail to correctly utilize their kitchen cabinets is because they don’t know how to use the hard to reach upper cabinets. As you’ll need a step stool to get to these cabinets, make sure to put the dishes that you only use on special occasions in the upper cabinets. Alternatively, you can also place your extra cleaning supplies here. If there’s an excess in vertical space, on the other hand, consider asking a kitchen remodeling services like The Kitchen Store to add a divider. The Kitchen Store is the go-to expert in kitchen cabinetry so make sure to approach us for advice.
Not Utilizing Wall Space
As much as possible, don’t leave all the work to your drawers and cabinets; if you have an abundance of wall space, use it. Add hooks, a towel bar, or even a magnetic knife rack on the empty walls of the kitchen so you’ll have a place to hang your knives and dish towels without taking up too much drawer space.
