The kitchen is the heart of every home - a place where memories are made and delicious food is shared. But if your kitchen is poorly organised it could create culinary chaos.
A well-organised kitchen is more than just aesthetical, it can streamline your cooking processes to save you valuable time. Kbsa members, Regal Kitchens, are masters of kitchen organisation. We take a look at some of the top tips for kitchen organisation and how using a Kbsa-approved retailer can help design your dream kitchen.
Here are some of our top tips when it comes to organising your kitchen.
- Empty all the cupboards
Whether you’re getting a new kitchen or reorganising your current kitchen, emptying all your cupboards and drawers is a great place to start. Throw away any expired food items and consider donating unused items to a food bank. While the cupboards and drawers are empty, give them a thorough clean with a weak solution of washing-up liquid and warm water to remove any dirt or residue.
- What items do you use the most?
Put ingredients or appliances you use the most towards the front of your cupboard to make them easily accessible. If you’re getting a new kitchen design, then you may want to consider what corner storage solutions are available.
- Create a child-friendly kitchen
Design and organise your kitchen in a way that makes it accessible to everyone, including children. Install a pull-out slim-line cabinet that allows children to retrieve items without leaving them on the countertops or disrupting other organised areas. This ensures they can easily find what they need without rummaging through cupboards and causing unnecessary mess.
- Maximise space
To help utilise the space your kitchen has to offer, use organisation tools such as baskets and stacking racks. Baskets are handy for keeping seasoning sachets and rice packets in, so all you need to do is pull out the basket to take out what you need. Stacking racks make it easier to separate items such as different-sized plates and bowls, ensuring you can easily locate the exact items you require.
- Consider your kitchen workflow
Arrange your kitchen in a way that promotes a smooth workflow. Keep frequently used items easily accessible, such as pots and pans near the oven and cutting boards near the sink. Organise your kitchen tools and ingredients based on their frequency of use, minimizing unnecessary steps and enhancing efficiency.
By choosing a Kbsa-approved retailer to design and install your new kitchen, you can rest assured that you're working with an expert who can deliver a stunning project tailored to your family's needs and lifestyle.
When you acquire your beautiful new kitchen from Regal Kitchens, their culinary experts will even visit your home to cook you a three-course meal, demonstrating how to confidently use all your new appliances and offering storage advice.
