There is some money saving ways that you can increase the efficiency of your kitchen for a small cost. This will help use space in the room and make your kitchen seem bigger than it is.

Sort the cupboards

One of the worst parts of dealing with your kitchen is having to negotiate cupboards filled with clutter. Pots, pans, lids and colanders are all strewn around in the cupboards in a haphazard order. It’s chaos. No one has time to crawl into the dark corners of these cluttered cupboards in search of the right sized pot lid.

Deal with this problem by cutting the issue off at the source. Replace the chaotic cupboard free for all with a subtle, tidy rack system. Draw dividers will also allow you to do this. Sure, it may mean less cupboard space, but it will be neater, tidier and more economical in the long run.

Another advantage of creating your own storage system is that you can develop or adapt it. You can make it fit different sized pieces without problems.

Drawers are another handy way of doing this. Creating more space in pre-existing drawers will free up more space in your kitchen and help you to remain organised.

Purge

You should be thinking about what you need in your kitchen. If you can get rid of something then, you should get rid of it. Think hard about what you use and don’t use and about where you are going to store the stuff you keep.

You might consider getting rid of some old dishes. Anything chipped or worn looking can go. You may also want to consider throwing out all the empty containers you have lying around – unless you really are going to use them all.

If you want to help save space, then you need to think about correct storage. Spice racks and wine racks are a fantastic way or getting rid of jars and bottles that cause clutter. They look smart and can hold more than you’d expect.

You may also want to think about putting things you rarely use into storage. This will help to protect them as well as freeing up a lot of space in the kitchen. Use storage containers and pack them away somewhere accessible. You can always fish them out when you need to.
