Corralling the clutter in your kitchen can often seem like an impossible task, as it’s usually the most frequented room in the home and the hub for household knickknacks. Keeping your kitchen organized can do wonders for making your space look more open and refreshed. Check out these tips for keeping the heart of your home spick and span.
Clear Countertops – Resist the urge to use your countertops as a catchall for clutter. Relocate small appliances and get rid of nonessential décor for more functional counter space that sets the scene for a pristine kitchen.
Utilize Cabinets – Kitchens look neater when your mess is kept behind closed doors. Stow away cooking and serving necessities in cabinets so they don’t make their way to the countertops. If you have open shelving, be sure to keep the things stored in them to a minimum.
Have a Junk Drawer – Sometimes, no matter hard you try, there are random objects that simply don’t have a particular home. Allow yourself one messy drawer to hold items that you need but don’t have a place for.
Refine Your Refrigerator – Hanging notes, cards and artwork on your fridge instantly clutters your kitchen. Simply stopping sticking anything on your refrigerator will make your room look tidier.
Coordinated Containers – Chic baskets and other cute containers easily and stylishly mask clutter in open spaces or closets. Use identical or similar containers for a more refined feel.
