Five Tips to Organise Your Kitchen – IKEA UAE Blog
A beautiful and organised kitchen is an owner’s delight and pride. Since we spend a large part of our daily time in the kitchen, it is important to keep it uncluttered and orderly for an easy life. Given below are five workable tips and smart solutions that will make your cooking time pleasant and breezy and save you from a lot of fumble and morning chaos:
DECLUTTER THE CABINETS: The first step towards an organized living is to de clutter. Pull out everything from the cabinets and donate or get rid of stuff you have not used for a while now. The aim is to keep only those things that are used. Arrange things in order of usage. Items used on rare occasions on higher shelves and things you need daily on the lower racks.
MAKE USE OF WALLS: Floor space is limited but the walls are all ours. A clever use of walls to create more storage space by using shelves, racks, wall panels can make more room in a kitchen with minimal storage options. Create your own smart solutions by buying an assortment of wall storage cabinets and shelves
HANGING IS FUN: Hanging more stuff on the pegs not only makes it easily accessible but also saves a lot of space around your work area. Aprons, pot holders, ladles, pans and even towels can be easily hung close to the area where you work, if possible at an arm’s length. A hand rail, hooks, rods and pegs can be used for the hanging purpose anywhere.
BASKETS, CONTAINERS AND MORE CONTAINERS: The key to a clean, organised and uncluttered kitchen is a liberal use of containers and storage baskets to stock cereals, packed foods, tiny pouches, grocery items, confectionaries and plenty of other knick knacks that may eat up a lot of space in your cabinets and drawers. It is fairly easy to find stuff if you organise them in groups, categories and label the containers.
DIVIDERS, DISPENSERS AND DRAINERS: Some of these recently discovered excellent kitchen racks are a blessing that make you forget your woes and worries. Drawer dividers, knife holders, plastic and foil dispensers and cutlery/utensil drainers are super cool and inexpensive organizers that help you perform a task in a snap – smartly and skilfully!!
