It is best to invest in a medium-large sized cabinet to add enough storage space for your utensils and cutlery, etc.
If you prefer tailor-made kitchen cabinets and drawers, bring in professionals who can deliver custom made cabinets just for you.
Cabinets can be set up at the base level or an elevation by fitting them into walls. Easy access is a must for each member of the family, so pay attention to the ideal spacing of kitchen cabinets.
Remember, the secret to a functional kitchen is proper planning and using space saving techniques.
DRAWERS AND SHELVES
While planning your kitchen space, make sure to keep enough room for spacious drawers and shelves. It’s going to help you store cutlery, extra reserves of cereal, and pulses, etc.
Invest in a wall shelf with pegs and attach them to the wall. And you have a spacious spot to hang your aprons, tongs, and oven gloves, etc.
DECIDE WHAT GOES WHERE
Place your utensils, glassware, and plastic items separately.
Kitchen gadgets like microwave/oven, dishwasher, and fridge etc., need sufficient space. Hence, plan their placement, keeping in mind ease of use and easy access.
Also, it is a good idea to use one of the drawers for storing table mats, napkins, and extra tissues, etc. It will make it easy to locate them when in a hurry.
A place for everything and everything in its place is the way to go!
BE SMART, USE LABELS
It is good practice to label the containers of pulses, spices, and cereals, etc., in your kitchen so all the family members can locate each item easily.
Your kitchen shelves and drawers can also carry labels such as ‘Cutlery’, ‘Reserves’, etc., to minimize confusion and maximize efficiency.
If you don’t already, get into the good habit of maintaining a grocery list so you know what it is you need to buy once you reach the market.
Keep a writing pad and pen handy in your kitchen and ask all family members to put down their requirements for the week.
Such a list will help you to keep your kitchen well stocked with all the necessary items of use and simplify your shopping responsibilities.
EXHAUST SYSTEM AND LIGHTING
Pay attention to the exhaust system in your kitchen. A well-ventilated kitchen is always a pleasure to work in.
If your kitchen is dimly lit, call the electrician and make provisions for better lighting with the help of LED lights and high-power bulbs.
Nothing brings down motivation levels than poor lighting. Therefore, ensure that your kitchen cabinets and appliances do not block the natural light coming in from the windows.
Good hygiene is a pre-requisite for healthy cooking, and therefore it is imperative to keep cleanliness in your kitchen space.
So after cooking each meal, clean the kitchen surfaces, the stove, and the sink area, etc., with a clean wipe.
The kitchen dusters, mops, and wipers should be washed and dried properly after use. The fridge and other appliances such as the oven and dishwasher should be regularly cleaned as well.
Remember: Your kitchen windows should be void of heavy drapes. Keep away other fabrics from your kitchen.
We hope you now know how to organise the kitchen and kitchen spaces in a cost-effective and efficient manner. A little bit of forward-thinking and care can help you to maintain a clean and inviting kitchen. Now that you have organized your kitchen, get ready to cook in style!
