Having a tidy kitchen can be so difficult sometimes especially if you love cooking. One of the hardest things is arranging all your kitchenware to finally get that comfortable and clean workspace you always dreamed. This is not easy, as kitchen is usually the fullest room in our homes. Furthermore, we use and move everything almost daily. If you are one of those who really spent a lot of time in the kitchen, having everything always in order is very important to cook better and faster.

Our best storage ideas for the kitchen
To have your kitchen organized, it all begins by thinking about what you have and where you want it to be placed. This way everything will be easier to find. Establish a hierarchy: always place what you use daily in the first row of the shelves and cupboards, and those things you only use occasionally behind. For example: don’t store those spices you bought for a single recipe in an accessible place. You know you won’t provably use them again.
It’s also important you take advantage of height so as not to stack things in excess. Use internal structures to create small auxiliary shelves. This means placing or even building -if you are a handyman of course- some vertical drawers, small shelves or organizers inside cupboards. This way you won’t have any problem to find and take what you need without messing up the rest.
