Here are some of the most practical tips on how you can clear clutter from your kitchen and create more cooking space.
Be a Minimalist

Keep nothing more than what you need and look into a self-storage in Singapore for extra storage to keep rarely used cooking appliances. Your counter is a valuable space that only a small selection of appliances and utensils are allowed to reside.

Alternative Storage Solutions
You’ll definitely run into clutter in drawers, or even have the infamous “junk drawer” in your kitchen. Some kitchen utensils also occupy more than their proportionate space in drawers where they are better re-arranged elsewhere. Consider floating shelves fixed at the side of the cabinet, with mason jars and baskets for vertical storage, perfect for your rack spices and cutleries. You can also use suction hangers and hooks to hang your utensils and paper towels.
Everyone have their own preferences and their own way of working in kitchens. Creating kitchen zones by task should be done according to your own needs in order to limit the amount of time spent trying to find things. You can store infrequently used tools on high shelves of cabinets and those you reach for often at easy-to-reach spots. For example, cooking tools like cutting boards, knives, pots – live in the cooking zone, the stove area. Plates, cups, bowls and glasses can be arranged in the upper cabinets directly above the sink, or beside it. You’ll not only be more organized, but you’ll have a better time finding what you need in that zone.
Typically, on a big family get-together or special holidays, it would be the time to break out certain kitchen appliances and utensils. But for the rest of the year when you aren’t hosting dinner parties, then extra dinnerware wouldn’t be in regular rotation and will be occupying your kitchen storage space. If you find yourself running out of extra space for storage, consider the cheapest self storage in Singapore and store your seasonal kitchen tools like serving platters, roasting pans and bakeware.
