There is nothing that contributes more to stress than having a disorganised kitchen. In a bid to get a particular item you keep rummaging through several items and scatter up the place, leaving an ugly mess. If you take time to organise your kitchen space and keep to it or constantly maintain the arrangement, you will have a more friendly space to work in.
1 Use appealing open shelves. Keep visually similar items together in open shelves; you can have matching china, white bowls, glassware, cookbooks together. You can also arrange a collection of items together making sure that you put them back in the same place each time you use them.
2 Clean out all your cabinets and storage space thoroughly. Remove spoilt foods or food items that you will probably never make use of. You can give away food items that you rarely use; this will help you de-clutter your space. Once the cupboard is empty, clean it thoroughly inside and out.
3 Mount a rack inside a cabinet, preferably one of the cabinets above and arrange all your spices on it so that you can see them at a glance.
4 Keep your cookbooks on an open shelf in a small bookcase. You can place the bookcase away from the main cooking area to prevent stains and food splatters from soiling the books.
5 Group similar items together in a cabinet. Arrange the pots together from the smallest to the largest. Same goes for mixing bowls; trays; serving bowls, dinner plates etc.
