Reduce Clutter in Your Kitchen

Posted on: July 22, 2014

The kitchen is one of the last places in your home where you want to feel cluttered. As the place you cook, entertain, help the kids with homework, etc., your kitchen should be as efficient and clutter-free as possible. For the bigger clutter items and keepsakes that you may not want to throw you, you may want to look into external storage companies for a good way of getting extra storage space for your possessions.

How do you go about clearing the clutter? Perhaps the space just needs a good cleaning. Perhaps the design has a lot to do with the clutter that accumulates in your home. If the design of your kitchen is poor and you find the space constantly cluttered and hard to move around in, it’s time for a change!

Clutter-Free Kitchen Design Ideas

There are a number of different ways to help keep your countertops clear so you have more space to work without feeling cramped. Here are some design elements that can help you achieve a clutter-free kitchen design:

  • Integrated appliances: Integrated kitchen design has gained popularity over the years and it’s not hard to see why. This type of design creates a clean, clutter-free look and can help modernize any space. Appliance garages are a must-have, especially for small kitchens-they blend in seamlessly with the cabinetry and rest of the design, hiding away smaller appliances like mixers, toasters, etc.
  • Compact appliances: Compact appliances, such as microwave drawers and built-in speed ovens, can also be thought of as integrated appliances. They are unobtrusive and don’t take up extra space.
  • Recessed wall niches: Recessed wall built-ins can be extremely convenient-and enhance the aesthetic of the kitchen. They are good solutions for holding small, daily-used items like spices, bottles of cooking oils, salt and pepper, etc. that would otherwise take up countertop space. You can get a prefabricated wall niche by archways and ceilings if you’re wanting to make this addition to your kitchen.
  • Floor-to-ceiling cabinets: Large, spacious cabinets may be exactly what you need, especially if you have a small kitchen. Custom floor-to-ceiling cabinets can blend in seamlessly with the rest of your space and have a lot of interior room, to store anything from larger appliances to dishware to pots and pans. There are many other cabinet ideas you can consider as well.
