These kitchen organization hacks can inspire you to make cooking a fun as well as worthwhile experience.
Smart Kitchen Storage Ideas
A great option is to custom-design or order custom-made kitchen cabinetry specifically designed for a functional and organized kitchen. As a mom, I’ve wanted a well-organized kitchen that I can work in efficiently. I decided to have storage for all my kitchenware and bakeware through lazy Susans, drawers and pullouts.
I am the type of person who appreciates cleanliness and orderliness. That’s why I make sure that all my cooking utensils are tucked away and organized in cabinets for storage and access.
Did you notice the paper towels found in the corner? I also asked the woodworker to allow a space for me to store my kitchen towels so they can be easily reached while cooking or cleaning. This type of functional storage makes preparing food easier and fun.
Another exciting part of my white Malibu kitchen design is the ability to store loaves of bread and dry goods on my center kitchen island. It makes breakfast preparation easier and efficient as everything I need is accessible within reach. My two kids can enjoy watching mom make a quick meal or fix a sandwich.
Kitchen organization can be attainable with smart storage solutions. A well-thought out kitchen plan is what it takes to have a fully-functional kitchen.
If you’re the minimalist person, an open-shelving type of kitchen organization may suit your personality. It opens more room for storage and doesn’t take up much floor space. The shelving can easily be mounted on walls. Open shelving is fun to work with as it allows you to work on your decorating skills and showcase some of your collectible china.
