Storage Solutions Part 3: The Key to Simple Clean-Up
We know how important the functionality of a space can be. Whether you are setting your table for a family dinner or meal prepping for the week, you want everything to be in an easy-to-reach area. Last week, we learned how to make table setting a breeze for you and your family. This week, we are going to give you the essentials for making clean up as easy and as "fun" as it can possibly be.
Many kitchens have pesky corner cabinets that can be difficult to work handle. Do you turn it into a Lazy Susan, or do you add extra shelves? If neither of those options sounds appealing to you, consider turning it into a recycling center, like this one from Fieldstone Cabinetry. This recycling center has room for three bins, which makes it easy to sort out all of your recyclables, including your plastics, aluminum and more. The rotating recycling center also ensures that each bin is easily accessible, so you do not have to fight to find the one you need.
Trash Pull Out
Who actually enjoys the site of a trash can in a kitchen? It gets smelly, it is unsightly and it is often in the way. That is why we recommend installing a trashcan pull out, such as this one from Fieldstone Cabinetry. It solves all of the previously mentioned issues and keeps your kitchen looking extra clean and tidy. The thing we like about this one is that it includes space for extra trash bags, so you really can keep everything in one location. You can even combine the trash and recycle pull out.
Base with Towel Bar
Do you ever have issues with your towels staying in one place and always bunching up? Our solution is to install a towel bar inside one of your cabinets. This towel bar easily slides in and out, so it is easy to take them out, use them and put them back. Plus, just like with the trash cans, it is well-hidden and out of the way, making your entire kitchen feel organized and clean. If you are interested in installing one for your kitchen, check out this towel bar from Rev-A-Shelf. Not only is it affordable, but it is also easy to install!
Spice racks are for more than just spices. They are also a great way to keep your cabinets organized, including the cabinet the holds all of your cleaning supplies. Instead of just tossing them in the cabinet and closing the door, consider installing spice racks to keep everything a little more organized. This way, you can put your smaller bottles in the rack, so they don't get shoved in the back by the larger items. Doing this allows for extra space and organization. Both Rev-A-Shelf and Fieldstone Cabinetry have excellent options for spice racks, should you choose to install them.
