If you wish you could afford an entire kitchen makeover but it’s just not in the budget, there might be good news for you. Keep reading to learn about how decluttering and investing in cabinet refacing can give you a brand-new look – and much more efficiency – for much less than you think.
Find Somewhere Else for Your Kitchenware
The fact of the matter is that if you have kitchen appliances out on the counter, they take up a lot of space. They can also make your countertops appear untidy and cluttered. You should gather up your blender, air fryer, tea kettle, automatic wine opener, stand mixer, coffee grinder, and anything else you do not use on a daily basis.
Then find a smart area to place them. If possible, you can add a new shelf or cupboard to keep these items tidily stored away. If nothing else, store them under a cabinet or in another room. It might seem convenient to have them out, but if you only use your blender once a month, don’t let it take up space every day.
Organize Your Pots and Pans
In many kitchens, pots and pans take up a wealth of space. You might have started out with just one or two pots and pans, but picked up many additional ones along the way. You will do this similarly to how you uncluttered what was on your counter – you will decide if you really need to keep all of your pots and all of your pans close at hand. A specialty pan, such as a paella pan, can be stored elsewhere and taken out when it is needed. If you have three of the same sized pot, pick one to work with.
Have a Plan to Maintain Your Clutter-Free Kitchen
Believe it or not, getting your kitchen free from clutter is only a small part of the battle. The actual hard part comes with keeping it that way. All it takes is one burst of energy to organize it, but it takes daily practice to keep it organized. Make a simple, short checklist that you follow every night. It takes just ten minutes to clean the clutter off the counter, wipe down the sink, and put away the dishes, yet it can have a huge impact on how clean and organized your kitchen stays.
