A Spring Into Kitchen Refresh

By June 3, 2022 June 29th, 2022 No Comments

It’s that time of the year – the sun is out, flowers are blooming, and birds are singing. Traditionally, spring cleaning is the time to get your home into shape for the coming months of  Summer fun.   While the idea of a complete kitchen purge may sound overwhelming, maybe our tips below can give you the incentive you need to tidy up and start the season right in manageable steps.

Dive Right In

Start by clearing out your kitchen items, one cabinet at a time. Dive in and get rid of that holiday candy and food that is past its sell-by date. Make piles of things to save, throw out, and donate. Empty out and wash overused containers, canisters, and spice boxes and refill them with fresh supplies. Be sure to clean your cabinets and countertops with non-abrasive, environmentally safe cleaning products to make your kitchen as good as new.

Get All Your Ducks in a Row

Once you’re confident you’re armed with only the most useful and usable items from your cabinets, get organized with labels, markers, and functional containers from your kitchen stash.

Divide and Conquer

Tame drawer clutter and add an adjustable storage solution for cookware lids with metal lid dividers that pop into wooden peg board drawer insert.  These efficient drawer systems compartmentalize your cutting boards and your knives.

A Charging system can ensure all your electronics are ready to use and safely tucked away in a drawer, away from the dangers of heat and spills.

Cut Through the Clutter

Add great functionality to your space with multi-level pull-out drawers, equipped with dividers to separate your cookware, and lids in compartments. Arrange your spices in space-saving filler pull-outs.

Add Specialty Storage

You can safely store your delicate stemware while displaying your collection at the same time with easy-to-install stemware racks. Paired with wine storage cabinets you can create a truly special display.

Float in Space

Even after all that cleaning and reorganizing, you may still be left with more items to store. Decorate wall space with floating shelves and display treasured items, while adding a space to organize cookware, recipe books, and your collectibles.

Bring the Outdoors Inside

After your spring kitchen feels as fresh as a daisy, incorporate color and scents to your space by bringing in essential oils, flowers, and herbs from your garden. Freshen your kitchen by adding a few green touches with indoor plants which can elevate your kitchen while adding oxygen to your environment. Think fresh and stay colorful this season – you’ll feel like a million bucks after your spring kitchen cleanup!
