There have been many changes to our daily lives over the last year, many of which have surprisingly been very positive.
Spending more time with the people we love most, learning new skills and appreciating what we want from life in a whole new way are just a few. With even more exciting things to look forward to throughout 2021.
For many people, the opportunity to fall in love with cooking again has been one positive side effect of the lengthy months of lockdown. Yet, many of us have found how disorganized our kitchens really are.
With countless people having their kitchens renovated in the UK in 2020, kitchen storage has become big business.
Let’s go into some of the ways you can store your kitchenware efficiently at home to continue enjoying cooking for years to come.
Invest in better cookware
Your pots and pans are likely taking up the most space in your kitchen, especially if you have a collection of over-used cookware you cannot bare to let go of.
Investing in some thoughtfully designed, robust cookware can help you to manage your kitchen storage more effectively. Especially if you invest in stackable cookware staples.
Strip back to essentials
Often, we accumulate to many gadgets, pans, baking sheets and other kitchen accessories we barely use. By stripping your kitchen back to the things you use, you’ll find yourself with more storage.
You could keep the miscellaneous gadgets somewhere else to see how much you use them. Then part with them if you haven’t used them in six month or more
Retrofit your cabinets
If your kitchen cabinets have been well-loved and were not designed with your current needs in mind, it might be a good idea to retrofit them with the kind of storage you now need.
Whether you need more shelves or a dynamic system to efficiently display spices and store dry goods, there is a hack for almost every need out there. Assess your needs and then set about retrofitting your cabinets.
Employ a professional organizer
If all else fails, you could consider employing the services of a professional organizer. Yes, professional organizing is a real job that many people make lucrative careers from.
You might not be able to get Marie Kondo to sort your pots and pans out for you, but a well-respected organizer can help you turn your kitchen around and make it easier to manage.
No matter how often or what you use your kitchen for, managing your kitchenware storage will help you have a happier time when you cook.
