Too many cooks spoil the food. We’ve heard that one! . But have you heard that a badly organised kitchen can also spoil the food? And your mood too? Whether you have just renovated your kitchen or looking to renovate it now, planning for an easy kitchen organisation should be on the top of your priority list. Thus, Here are some smart kitchen organisation tips you need for your kitchen.

Essentials for Smart Kitchen Organisation:

#1: Change the Layout to Amp Up Kitchen Organisation

An all-white kitchen gives off an airy look even if it has cabinets on both sides

Sometimes a kitchen can be quickly decluttered and organised by adding up a pantry, kitchen cabinet or other kitchen organiser units. This can result in a layout-change of the kitchen. However, the only thing to lose in this trade-off is walking space. However, you can try an all-white kitchen layout design to give it a more spacious and airy appearance.

#2: Account Storage for Better Kitchen Organisation

Account for  any additional  storage requirements for your kitchen too

One of the things that can be done before renovating your kitchen is to take into account the kitchen  storage. What do you want to display? What needs to be hidden? Make a list, if possible and watch our designers design a kitchen for you that leaves the space super clean.

#3: Kitchen Organisation Based on Height

Higher cabinets can be used for rarely-used items

A kitchen cabinet that contains things that you employ constantly should always be in comfortable reach. Do not put things out of your reach when looking to organise your kitchen. Additionally, the utensils or ingredients which you rarely use can be kept in the higher cabinets. 

#4: Install a Tall Pantry Unit

A tall pantry unit is all about maximised storage

A kitchen pantry unit can hold an army of groceries and other condiments. Likewise, a tall unit can easily hold the weight of several kitchen organisers in one.

Pro Tip: Follow the golden rule of pantry organisation. Arrange things in a way that every item in the pantry is visible. It makes the pantry accessible and easy to clean.

#5: Add Butler’s Pantry to the Kitchen Organiser List

Don’t forget to engineer in lights for a luxurious feel

A butler’s pantry is a transitional kitchen cabinet installed between the dining room and the kitchen. Not to mention, it is a luxe feature which is helpful to hold crockeries, wine bottles and other kitchen accessories.

#6: Mix Open and Closed Units for Finer Kitchen Organisation

Get the best of both worlds-open and closed cabinets

A mix of open and closed cabinets provides for the maximisation of the organisation  benefits. While an open kitchen cabinet will make the space appear airy, the closed ones keep the heavy accessories hidden.

Categories can include condiments, groceries, appliances, etc.

Organisation according to categories is important. For example, the nearest kitchen cabinet to the cooking stove is best for storing cutlery as makes it easier to reach out and pull a cutlery when in need. 

#2: Go the Marie Kondo Way of Kitchen Organisation

Marie Condo is a famous home organiser celebrity with her own Netflix special named ‘Tidying Up With Marie Condo’. Her idea is to get rid of anything that hasn’t been used in a long time. This is quite a helpful technique that helps to readily declutter. 

#3: Vacuum out Crumbs From Your Kitchen Cabinet

Use a smaller vacuum cleaner to vacuum smaller spaces in kitchen

It is easier to have a smaller vacuum handy and use it to clear out  smaller kitchen cabinet crumbs. It helps you save time from pulling out everything at once and then cleaning it.

#4: Employ Kitchen Organisation for Kid Safety

Baby proof the kitchen if your child is below three years of age

Kitchens should also account for kids’ safety. For example, putting sharp objects in a kitchen cabinet that is reachable for your  kids is not the ideal way to go.
