Giving Your Kitchen a Mini Overhaul

Giving Your Kitchen a Mini Overhaul


No matter the size of your kitchen, you will always find that there are many things you can do to improve how this space works and functions for you. A mini overhaul will give you the opportunity to create a kitchen that is functional. It will also help you create a space that you love being in. To give your kitchen a mini overhaul, you need to be focused on what you want to achieve.

Making Spaces Easy to Clean

When you tackle your kitchen, it would be ideal to make spaces easier to clean. Clutter and mess can quickly build in the kitchen. However, this will happen less infrequently when spaces are easier to clean. In your mini overhaul, focus on how the kitchen countertops and cabinets are being used. Ensure they are being used both effectively and efficiently. Having lots of items lose and out on countertops can make spaces difficult to tidy and clean,

Look at Reorganizing

How organized is your kitchen? Can you confidently say you know all about the items and products that are currently taking up space in your kitchen? Does the layout work for you? Reorganizing won't take long to do; when it is completed, it will save you time because you will know exactly what is where (and why). You need to start with one area at a time to successfully reorganize. Ensure an area is fit for purpose, then move on to the next. For example, reorganize the crockery cabinet and ten reorganize the coffee station.

Top Tip: Always think about storage in your kitchen; make sure that you utilize a wide range of storage solutions. This may mean using storage caddies, or it may mean using collapsible storage boxes.

Sorting Through Stored Goods

You may have a pantry area in your kitchen or a lot of shelving and cabinets that are full to the brim. Sorting through these stored goods, checking labels, and making sure items are still safe to use and consume is important. You want to make sure that the products you use regularly, such as the organic coffee beans for your morning coffee, are at the front of the cabinet. Other items that are used with less frequency can be stored at the back of cabinets and cupboards. When you are in your kitchen, you want to be able to put your hand on what you need and want (straight away). You don't want to have to hunt around as this wastes time.

Make Sure the Layout Works for You

You may not be able to move the cabinets in your kitchen, but you can make sure the layout works for you. Ensure that cabinets and cupboards are laid in a manner that works for you. For instance, you may want to fill the cupboards and cabinets near your sink with crockery and glasses (those items you use every day). Think about how you use your kitchen and where you would like items to be located for ease of use. A new layout can change how you use your kitchen.
