Moving is an arduous and lengthy process. You may spend weeks, at times months, obsessing and planning over the smallest details of the move to ensure there are no shocks or surprises on your moving day.
But the process doesn’t stop at that. After a moving company helps you relocate to a new home, you will need to spend several days unpacking and organizing your things before it starts feeling like home.
With kitchens being the heart of many homes, it won’t come as a surprise that many individuals choose to unpack and organize the room. Though there are several things, you may do to ensure your kitchen is up and running. Some of these things include:
Organize Your Cabinet
You should keep baking and cooking pieces close to where you prepare food. Utensils need to be in the drawer near the prep area, while glassware will be best near the refrigerator or sink.
You can also make a tea or coffee station, including filters, mugs, and sugar, and put it close to a water source. With this, you will be able to prevent going back and forth for the items you require just to prepare morning beverages.
Declutter the Drawer Space
As you rearrange your items to keep the kitchen more organized, you will unavoidably run across some clutters in the drawers, including ubiquitous ‘junk drawers.’ Take the chance to clear the messes you get as part of the general cleaning strategy.
If you want to pop out to the store so as to grab cheap drawer organizers, do so. These wooden or simple plastic inserts may turn the messiest drawers into a tidy and neat space. Get one for silverware and another for daily items, like:
- Rubber bands
- Twist ties
Put Things Out into Piles
Once you pick a starting point, be sure to take things out of the storage space. This will help create a spot for items on the dining table or countertops.
Beginning with clean slates means creating more and new functional organizational methods. After getting familiarized with the kitchen, it can help to revisit your hurried decisions and start afresh.
Add in Extra Storage
Several creative storage solutions for your kitchen are available for buying and DIY. Don’t allow your wall space to go to waste. Consider hanging some cubbies, shelves, or a bar, which you can use to hang dish towels.
You may also invest in storage carts that you can get in different sizes to fit any space. It is possible as well to find a storage solution to attach to the cabinet doors, refrigerator door, and under-cabinet space.
Don’t forget an in-cabinet wire shelving and cabinet divider, which will make your self-space more productive.
Everyone will agree that a house is never complete without a kitchen. Basically, there are a lot of reasons to crown your kitchen as the most vital room in all homesteads. Regardless of being an important space, you will always love being there. So you might want to consider some of these ways to organize your kitchen after the move.
