Make Room to Entertain

Life at Home...

When everything in your home has a specific place, it’s much easier to find what you need when guests arrive. One room in the home that can really benefit from a good organizational system is the kitchen. It’s one of the most used rooms in the home, so why not make it better with these 4 tips?

1. Embrace the lazy Susan

Incorporating a lazy Susan into your kitchen cabinets or on your countertops allows you to organize similar items neatly in one place. It also helps you find things much faster.

2. Hang things up

Hang pots and pans on the wall or from a ceiling organizer to free up space in your cabinets. It’ll be much easier to organize pans by size and use if you can see them! You won’t have to dig through a mess of metal every time you want to cook.

3. Store items by use

This is an easy way to quickly organize your kitchen items. Whether it’s in your cabinets, drawers, or refrigerator, keeping similar items together makes it easier to grab what you need, when you need it. For example, store everyday dishes on a lower cabinet shelf and special-use items on a higher shelf. Put each type of food together – like cereals and breakfast food, snacks, pasta and grains, and baking ingredients.

4. File away containers

Tupperware is an item that a lot of people have trouble storing. The lids and bottoms seem to disappear to the same place as the matching socks that get lost in the dryer! Instead of storing them in cabinets, put a dish organizer in a pull out drawer and store the Tupperware tops and bottoms with no problem.

The kitchen is the heart of the home. If you develop an easy, simple organizing system for your kitchen, it’ll pull everything together, make it easier to prep and cook meals, and leave you more time to visit with your guests!
