How to declutter a small kitchen with Easylife Kitchens

In a small kitchen, clutter can accumulate quickly, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and cramped. The good news is that there are practical ways to reclaim your kitchen’s space and keep it organized. At EasyLife Kitchens Table View, we understand the importance of an efficient kitchen layout. In this blog post, we’ll provide you with valuable tips on how to declutter your small kitchen, creating a more functional and inviting space.

Maximise Vertical Space

Take advantage of your kitchen’s vertical space by installing shelves or racks on the walls. These additions can accommodate items like pots, pans, mugs, and utensils, freeing up valuable counter and cabinet space.

Clear Your Countertops

The more items you have on your countertops, the smaller your kitchen will appear. To declutter, only keep essential items out in the open. Consider using wall-mounted holders or hooks for your cooking utensils or a magnetic knife strip to free up drawer space.

Clear Out Your Cabinets

Overloaded cabinets can be a nightmare to navigate. Start by taking everything out, decluttering, and organising. Use cabinet dividers, stacking shelves, and pull-out trays to make the most of your cabinet space. Group similar items together for easy access.

Opt For Space-Saving Appliances

Look for compact, multi-functional appliances that can save space and perform several tasks. For example, a microwave with a built-in toaster can replace two separate appliances, reducing clutter on your countertops.

Clear Storage Containers

Clear storage containers for pantry items can help you see what you have and keep everything organized. Label the containers for easy identification and stack them neatly on shelves.

Use The Inside Of Your Cabinet Doors

Install hooks or racks on the inside of your cabinet doors to hang items like pot lids, cutting boards, or measuring cups. This keeps these items easily accessible while decluttering the cabinet interiors.

Downsize Your Dishware

Evaluate your collection of dishes, glasses, and mugs. If you have too many, consider paring down to a set that meets your needs. This reduces the number of items you need to store and wash.

Clutter-Free Fridge

A cluttered fridge can make your kitchen feel chaotic. Remove outdated magnets, notes, and old condiments. Invest in clear storage bins for perishables and use magnetic organizers for shopping lists and reminders.

Dedicated ‘Junk Drawer’

If you have a drawer that’s prone to collecting miscellaneous items, designate it as a “junk” or utility drawer. Use dividers or small containers to keep things organized within the chaos.

Regularly Declutter & Donate

To maintain a clutter-free kitchen, set a schedule to declutter and donate items you no longer need. This will prevent your small kitchen from becoming overcrowded in the future.

Decluttering a small kitchen may seem challenging, but with a well-thought-out plan and the right tools, you can transform your space into a functional and organised cooking haven.
