An organized kitchen makes for easy entertaining! Using simple tips and tricks will help make your organization an easy task and make your kitchen more functional.
Start by grouping and organizing foods like snacks, canned goods, dry ingredients and meal preparation. Section off space in your pantry in their own areas. Store snacks in clear organizer containers. This will make for a clean and neat look and you’re your snacks together and handy. Place boxes and containers facing forward to create an easier view.
Stacking coffee cups with their saucer plates makes for easy reach and ready to entertain. It also allows for more space on the shelf.
Stacking short glassware goes to new heights when you place a tray between each level. This allows for more glasses to stack! Also, when stacking glassware, always stack up and down making more room as well.
Style your easy to reach dish and hand soap on a pretty cake stand or decorative saucer. This adds interest to the counter while making things pretty all at the same time. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to contain the drips either.
COFFEE ON THE GO!
Rethink ways to use organizers. Magazine racks can be turned into foam cup holder for your coffee station.
