No matter how many hours you spend cleaning the kitchen, it always seems like it becomes cluttered and messy a few days later. If you are tired of working around an unorganized kitchen all the time, we want to help. We have gathered some tips that residents of our apartments in Chicago can take advantage of to create an organized kitchen.
STORE TOWELS, APRONS AND OVEN MITTS
Hand towels, dish rags, oven mitts and aprons are all essential kitchen items, but they can quickly pile up and become clutter. If your oven has a handle, hang hand towels on it. Or, simply store towels, aprons and oven mitts in a designated kitchen drawer. Your items will be within reach, yet out of the way.
GET A SPICE RACK
It is amazing just how quickly small jars of spice can start to accumulate around your kitchen. Before you know it, you have dozens of jars cluttering up your kitchen. That is where a spice rack will come in handy.
A spice rack will allow you to take empty space in your kitchen and transform it into useful storage space. A countertop spice rack works perfectly.
USE THE “BRING AN ITEM IN ONLY WHEN YOU TAKE AN ITEM OUT” RULE
It is tempting to want to purchase every kitchen gadget that comes out, but that will really start to clutter up your kitchen. Live by the rule that you can only bring a kitchen gadget in if you get rid of an existing gadget. This will help you avoid having a kitchen filled with gadgets.
KEEP REGULARLY USED KITCHEN TOOLS WITHIN REACH
Try and store kitchen tools that you use on a regular basis near the stove. This will give you quick, easy access to the tools you need while prepping food. When you have quick access to these tools, you won’t be searching around and creating a mess.
Of course, a spacious kitchen helps with organization. Our apartments in Chicago offer residents large, spacious kitchens. Call our office today to schedule an appointment to tour our brand new modern flats, studios, or one- and two-bedroom apartment homes.
