Do you ever take a look at your kitchen countertops and wonder how they got so cluttered? I know that feeling all too well. When we moved into our new home, the counters were pristine. But now as my family has grown, it seems like everything just wants to pile up on them.
This is what led me to start researching ways to declutter kitchen countertops and found some great ideas for everyone who is looking for help with this issue!
Clear out the clutter and make a more functional kitchen with these tips.
- Throw away food samples! Chances are they’re past their expiration date, it can’t be healthy to store them.
- Start by putting everything onto one surface so you are making progress as soon as possible. Sort items into categories like cleaning products, small appliances, grocery shopping list items- this will help remove some of the confusion and get you down to bare essentials quickly!
- Have fun sorting dishes – use your creativity to plan which dish will fit in your space.
Kitchen countertop organisation can be a bit trickier than simply adding fake plants and kitchen-themed home decor.
