Clear up a little bit
You may have moved all that stuff from your old home, but that don’t mean they all must fit into the new place. In fact, moving is one of the best times to really sort your items out and do away with the junks. So, get rid of the things that don’t work, or fix those that aren’t okay.
Let frequency of use count
Pick out the items you use most frequently, and hang them within reach. Then those that are not used so often can go into the cabinets or shelves, and the ones that you used once in a blue moon can even be taken out of the kitchen (for space constraint).
Group your items.
Sort out the things that go together and group them, such as your baking supplies, cooking utensils, cleaning materials, etc. Put these each of these collections together and place around where you use them. Something like the cooking or baking supplies can get into the same clear container, and stored in your cabinet. Now when you need to use them, all you have to do is pull out the container and you have them all in one place.
Maximize your drawer
Make the drawer next to your stove a spice drawer, put your spice bottles in there, but don’t forget to label them so you can easily pick out what you want. You can use masking tape for the labeling so it is easy to remove when you start using a bottle for something different.
Turn to lazy Susans
Lazy Susans can help hold some things. Use them in the refrigerator, or even in the spaces in some corners to maximize those spaces. Sticky food items can go on it, and it’s easy to clean.
Open shelves help
The wall space above your stove makes for a good place to have an open shelve (if there is no cabinet there already). It will not only serve as storage space for more materials, but will also allow you to keep handy the things you need more often.
Take advantage of the spaces
Find other ways of maximizing your wall space with things like hooks to hang mugs, aprons and pot holders. Every wall space can actually serve for something. Cabinet doors can also hold some measuring spoons and other items.
Divide the drawers
Use drawer dividers to align items in the drawer, get them arranged properly so they don’t rattle around, while making room for more.
And remember the sink cabinet
The hoses and sink bottom are there to deal with, but you can still find ways of making use of the sink cabinet and have some items kept there.
