Organization has always been an important part of life and lately it has become an even more popular topic. Between concepts like minimalism, the “Marie Kondo Method” and all of us spending more time indoors, now is a great time to look at organization in our homes. We will take you room by room and discuss ways to better organize your spaces.
Staying organized in the kitchen is critical for an effective cooking experience especially if you are cooking with someone else. Cabinet accessories such as drawer dividers, cutlery trays, utensil bins, and knife holders are just the start. Pairing food storage bins with rollout drawers in a pantry can keep everything neat but also prevent food getting lost in the back and going bad.
Having zones for specific tasks can also help you organize your kitchen space. Are you a baker? Maybe you have a specific cabinet that is dedicated to baking supplies.
Consider tray dividers in a cabinet to store cookie sheets and pans vertically. It makes pulling them out easy and finding the right one as well. These tray dividers work best in base cabinets as well as in the upper portion of tall cabinets.
Since the kitchen is the main hub of the house, implementing a command center or message area can help families stay organized with schedules and daily events. This could be in the form of a desk area (either sit down or standing) located in the kitchen or even a dedicated tall cabinet.
The Laundry Room
Closets are not just a hanging rod anymore. Adding cabinetry to your closet, such as drawers, shelves, shoe racks and hanging space, helps keep all our clothes organized, visible, and at the ready.
Accessories are always a challenge, coming in so many shapes and sizes but drawer organizers for your belts, ties, and jewelry will help keep everything in its place.
Whether you have already started or are just starting, organizing your home can seem like a daunting task at first.
