Steps to Decluttering and Reorganizing

First, go through each kitchen cabinet and take everything out. Throw away or donate what you do not use, appliances you have two of or broken items you forgot you had. This will get rid of unnecessary clutter and to get the job done to its fullest extent be sure to go through every cabinet and every drawer with separate piles of keep, donate, throw away on the floor. Most kitchens are short on storage space so only keep the items you use often.

After going through and figuring out what you plan to keep, group like items together. For example, sort through all your baking appliances and pile them together, your go to cooking items and daily dishes, glassware and silverware. Make a pile of holiday or seasonal items, such as holiday serving platters or special china, that are only used a couple of times a year to put in a separate place.

Now you are ready to organize your cabinets and find a place for each of your piles. Put cooking and baking appliances and items close to where you cook and are preparing to cook. Cups and glasses should be close to your sink or refrigerator, wherever water is most accessible. Utensils and other utensil-like cooking supplies should be near where you prep as well. Best Buy Carpet and Granite can help you decide which cabinets to build shelves and work in more space for you to store all your kitchen items and appliances. You can also use drawer dividers to organize your cooking utensils and miscellaneous drawers that may have a random assortment of items, but are still organized.
