1.    Have Meaningful Organization

The most important part of an organized kitchen is that the way you organize it has a purpose and meaning. Random organization is not enough to help your kitchen experience become smoother. For example, it makes sense that baking supplies be all together. It makes even more sense that the baking supplies be near the oven. By keeping all baking supplies together and near the oven (the primary location for baking), you save time. Similarly, keeping all the dishes together, all foods together, all canned goods together, wine glasses near the wine rack, etc. save time and reduce chaos.

2.    Keep Food Together

As I have already alluded to it, it is essential that you organized so that your food is all kept together. Food is more likely to go bad when it has gone missing among your dishes and cooking oils. For that reason, I recommend dedicating a cupboard or two to food and only food. I did this, and it made a world of a difference.

3.    Keep Dishes Together

The same idea for food applies to dishes and other supplies. I highly recommend you keep your dishes all the same cupboard, your cups in the same cupboards, and same with pans, cooking oils, spices, appliances, etc. When you keep like items together, using those items becomes easiest. I also recommend that you keep the most frequently used items in the most convenient locations.

4.    Keep the Flow

Your kitchen should flow. By that, I mean that you shouldn’t find yourself running all over the kitchen to complete simple tasks like putting dishes away or cooking. Be sure that you keep like items near each other so that you aren’t searching all over the place just to put your dishes away or bake a cake.

5.    Do Not Let the Dishes Stack

I am particularly guilty of this one. I find myself letting the dirty dishes pile up until I cannot use the sink. Then I clean them and leave them in the drying rack until I have dirtied them all once again. Sound familiar? This is NOT a good habit to have. In order to have a functional and organized kitchen, dishes ought to be done daily at the very least. If you have multiple people using the kitchen, it will likely need to be done after each use or meal. By keeping your sink and counters free of clean or dirty dishes, you remove chaos and disorganization from your kitchen.



A kitchen is one of the most frequently utilized rooms in any home and, for that reason, it is essential to keep it clean and organized. Hopefully, these 5 tips have helped you to organize your kitchen.
