Countertops are flat surfaces that tend to become covered in objects very quickly – if you have a countertop in your kitchen, you have surely wondered how it can become so messy so quickly. Keeping your kitchen countertop organized is possible, though – with these tricks:
- Use multiple-stack trays – whether made from woven material, metal or plastic, these multi-layered stacking tools are great for categorizing and storing small objects;
- Hang utensils on the wall – magnetic knife holders or hooks installed on the wall are great for having larger utensils, such as knives, spatulas and ladles at hand without taking up precious horizontal space;
- Keep appliances stacked – metal or wire racks can be used for placing larger appliances one on top of the other. You can place your microwave oven directly on the countertop and use a metal rack with legs to place the toaster on top;
- Keeping cutting boards out of the way – cutting boards are also large and bulky and they have nothing to do on your countertop when they are not in use. You can easily place them out of sight, strapping them onto the interior part of one of your cabinet door with a suitably sized metal strap.
Another way to help with kitchen organization, is to search for discount cabinets in Denver that offer storage solutions that minimize countertop clutter.
