Designer Samantha Pynn shares tips for organizing your kitchen into zones to keep things tidy and save time.
1. Coffee/tea/beverage zone: Keep often-used items within reach. Create a mini station so you’re keeping all the things you need in one spot and don’t have to move around as much.
2. Food prep area: Cutting board, dishes, spices, oils, etc. Keep them close to the stove so you can plate dinners quickly and easily.
3. Cleanup area: Keep pretty things on display (containers, tea towels) and hide everyday items like gloves, sponges and cleaning supplies under the sink and out of sight.
4. Food containers: The key to keeping food containers organized is to make sure they’re all the same. Keep all the lids together and stack the glass containers. Buy at least a half-dozen at a time.
5. Flatware and utensils: Organize according to use; the more dividers the better. If a space is too big to suit your purpose, make it smaller by inserting a box.
