There’s nothing better than enjoying a home cooked meal. Though, when your kitchen is a mess, cooking your signature eggplant parmesan can seem like more trouble than its worth. See how you can make cooking easier, and organize your kitchen, with these 4 tips:
1. Clear out the clutter – Clutter makes cooking intimidating, plus it takes up much needed counter space! Instead of keeping your espresso machine or electric juicer out at all times, only pull them out of the cabinet when you’re about to use them. If you’re looking for a good way to store appliances, try ShelfGenie’s custom pull-out shelves. As well, ShelfGenie can remove your cabinet’s center post, or stile, for more even more usable space.
2. Organize your cabinets – Having organized cabinets makes all the difference in your kitchen. Designate cabinets for different items, like dishes, cookware, and countertop appliances. This makes it easier for you to unload the dishwasher, find the matching lid for your Tupperware, and cook a stress-free dinner. Consider getting ShelfGenie custom pull-out shelves. These shelves can be installed in existing cabinets for more access, organization, and space.
3. Prioritize your pantry – When finding your ingredients is easy, cooking is easy too. Create zones in your pantry to help you spot items simply. You may also want to put items you use most often (or would like to use most often) front and center in your pantry. Things you use less often, like those emergency soup cans, would be best suited for the back. To make finding and reaching every item simple, contact ShelfGenie about pull-out shelves for easy access.
4. Find a little inspiration -Half the fun in cooking is getting excited about new recipes. Try creating an organized space for your cookbooks and magazines. Whether you’re looking for a certain recipe or just flipping through pages for inspiration, having an organized space makes it easier. Tools like ShelfGenie’s slope cookbook Solution can make creating this space simple.
