Tips for Organizing the Kitchen

They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, but it can also be a headache for homeowners if it’s not organized and maintained. That said, we've learned a few things over the years, and we are feel certain that the key to mastering an organized kitchen and relieving those headaches is finding a system that makes sense to you! A good place to start are kitchen “zones.” Read on to learn more!⁣

Zone 1: Everyday Items⁣
These are the things you use multiple times a day like plates, bowls, cups, flatware, and serveware. Store these pieces close to where you will use them—for example, glasses near the refrigerator and flatware near the dining area.⁣

Zone 2: Cooking and Baking items⁣
Store pots, pans, measuring cups, cutting boards, and mixing bowls near the stove and oven. Baking sheets and muffin tins can fit vertically near your oven’s thin cabinet.⁣

Zone 3: Coffee + Bar Items⁣
Zone 3 is one of our favorites! This zone houses essentials for your morning coffee and evening wine. Keep items set apart and easily accessible by designating a particular kitchen cabinet or section of the pantry. ⁣

Zone 4: Pantry and Storage Items⁣
Zip-close bags, Tupperware, aluminum foil, and plastic wrap should be stored together for easy post-meal clean-up. Keep dry goods, spices, and small kitchen appliances in your pantry, and consider clear containers to better monitor when your dry goods are running low.⁣

Don't get discouraged if your initial attempt falls short; kitchen org is an evolution, not a revolution. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again! You’ll eventually find a system that works for you and your household.
