Transform your kitchen with these super easy mess-busting tips and storage ideas
Are your kitchen cabinets overflowing with junk? Are you ready to transform your space with plenty of clever decluttering solutions? Here at Housetohome we’ve come up with a few tried and tested ways of sorting out your kitchen for good.
1. Hang it up
Hang aprons, oven gloves, and tea towels on wall mounted pegs within reach of your cooking area. If you have space above your cooker or kitchen island hang a pot rack, it a great way to free up the bulky items from your kitchen cabinets.
2. Store by use
Sort and store items by frequency of use. Place your salt and pepper
shaker close by at the front of the cupboard and your other spices
further at the back. This principle works well for your worktop too.
Keep your kettle close to hand as you’ll be using it often and place
your blender further down the worktop.
3. Stack ‘em high
Store open plastic containers inside one another and keep lids close by. It’s much easier to keep the lids separate.
4. Clever hidden storage
If you’re planning a new kitchen think about clever storage. Trays that
fit neatly into the nooks and crannies of your kitchen are ideal or
pull-out storage that packs in plenty more stuff that regular cupboards
are great examples. Alternatively, go for a freestanding unit with
intelligent design features built in.
5. Open shelving is your friend
Run out of cupboard space? Don’t worry, open shelving is the best option
for overflowing cabinets. You can stack cups and plates on top of each
other to make a pretty display. It’s bang on trend, too.
6. Curtain call
Placing all your unsightly items behind a curtain is an
easy, no-brainer solution to dealing with kitchen clutter. It works well if you want
to disguise appliances and gives your space a pretty, country-style
7. Store items upright
Got plenty of drawers in your kitchen? Storing items upright can make
things a lot neater. Label the lids to make things easy to find.
