How to properly organize your small kitchen?

For the kitchen to be functional and organized, the idea is to ensure that the ingredients and utensils are within easy reach. To do this, it is first necessary to define each area of ​​activity: storage, preparation, cooking, washing and garbage. The challenge for those with a large kitchen is to bring these various functions together. In a small kitchen on the other hand, it is necessary to optimize each space, hence the interest of folding shelves and sliding extensions. The key here is to exploit all the voids in the room. As much as possible, it is better to opt for stackable or foldable storage and chest systems.

Drawers are one of the essentials in a kitchen. They find their place in the lower units of the kitchen, generally under the hob or worktop for easy access. There are also locker systems so that the drawers do not take up too much space. In any case, it is advisable to compartmentalize them for an effective organization.

Regarding kitchen cupboards, they allow you to store utensils that you rarely use. From now on, it is possible to exploit even the back of the doors to fix clever storage there.

As for the ingredients, it is essential to have easy access to them while preserving their flavors. To avoid overloading your refrigerator, adopt the stackable storage boxes, the bottle racks, the ice cube tray with reservoir, among others.

For dry foods, they should be stored in airtight jars and boxes to protect them from light and moisture. In any case, remember to postpone the expiry date on each container.

In general, reasoning logically is enough. You are not going to store the pans that you use frequently with the fryer! In addition, it is important to facilitate the opening and closing of cupboards by providing ergonomic handles, for example.

To store spices and condiments not far from the work area, take advantage of unused spaces and adopt practical accessories such as pyramidal shelves to store dishes, pans, plates, cups or glasses.
