CONSIDER THIS ADVICE WHEN PLANNING YOUR KITCHEN
our professional organizer’s how-to guide to organizing your kitchen
TIP 1— ZONE YOUR KITCHEN BY CATEGORY
Divide your kitchen into zones (coffee zone, baking zone) and contain items by category, in the same zone.
TIP 2— STORE YOUR MOST USED THINGS IN THE MOST ACCESSIBLE PLACES
Chose what goes where by prioritizing the things you use most.
TIP 3— MINIMIZE THE NUMBER OF STEPS
Looking at each item in your kitchen, think through the number of steps it takes to access it. When reorganizing your kitchen, strive to minimize the number of steps taken to access any one thing.
TIP 4— PURCHASE STORAGE RACKS
Purchase vertical, slotted, storage racks to organize tall, flat things like cooking trays, cutting boards, pot and pan lids, and serving trays and platters.
TIP 5— UPGRADE TO PULL-OUT DRAWERS
Rather than permeant cabinet shelving, consider large, pull-out drawers, to easily access the things stored towards the back.
