Despite what you may think, you don’t need a massive kitchen to keep yourself organized! It is entirely possible to enjoy a smaller kitchen all while keeping yourself more streamlined. To help keep your life simple, here are some tips to bring more order to your petite kitchen.
One of the first things to help keep a small kitchen more organized, is a utensil rack. Not only is this a good way to keep them organized, but it frees up your precious drawer space. Smaller kitchens don’t have much drawer space, so why fill them up with something then can also double as a display item!
Assign dedicated storage
Without order, kitchen drawers and cabinets end up being “junk areas”. Most homes have one or two junk drawers, but in smaller kitchens, this is less than ideal. Assign different cupboards a specific purpose and stick to it. At the end of every day, make sure to put everything back in it’s rightful space. This will make make the time you spend in your kitchen much more enjoyable.
I don’t mean to physically move to a smaller space, but instead, get rid of things you don’t need. I have only a few of each thing in my not-so-large kitchen. 6 glasses, 6 plates, 4 mugs, and 4 bowls. Now, if you have a lot of guests or family, you may not be able to be THAT minimal. It is important to reduce the amount of clutter. Having less stuff can be immensely freeing and helps keeping everything much cleaner!
There is nothing wrong with keeping things on the counter! The nice thing about items on the counter is that, when organized correctly, it adds a bit of flare to your kitchen! Having a cute holder for utensils, or a hanging spice rack can clear up cabinet space and keep your kitchen looking chic.
