Like most homeowners, you’re probably too busy to keep your kitchen organized 100% of the time. When you’re cooking for a hungry family night after night, alphabetizing the spice rack isn’t a huge priority. Luckily, there are several modern conveniences that can help make your kitchen easier to organize:
Frantically searching through your drawers and cabinets is frustrating. In order to locate various food items quickly, you should consider purchasing clear containers. You should also consider square, vertically-oriented containers that will help you make the most out of your cabinet space. Lastly, air-tight containers can protect your food from insects and rodents.
Pullouts and rollouts
Even if you keep your kitchen fairly organized, sometimes it’s difficult to reach items in the back of the cabinets. Luckily, placing rollouts inside your cabinets can make it much easier to grab hard-to-reach items. With pullout shelves and drawers, you don’t have to open a cabinet at all; just pull on the handle and the whole unit comes out.
In order to create even easier access to kitchen items, you should get a series of Lazy Susans. These circular rotating shelves come in a variety sizes that are perfect for spices, pans, food items, and whatever else you keep in your kitchen. Some Lazy Susans have multiple shelves that rotate together or separately.
Full extension guides
Old drawers are sometimes difficult to open all the way, making it hard to store items in the back. Luckily, modern drawers come with full extension guides that allow them to glide wide open. If you’re tired of yanking on old drawers, you should consider the added convenience of full extension guides.
