Lacking storage in your kitchen? Finding it difficult to fit everything into the drawers and cabinets? Sometimes all it takes is a few clever storage tricks to create a kitchen that is more organised, runs more efficiently and makes life a whole lot easier. Here's 17 of the best ideas!
Who doesn't love a good sneak peek into other people's storage spaces?! I know that some of my most pinned Pinterest images are those that show sneaky storage solutions, or clever ideas for 'adding' space in a tight spot.
Luckily for us, in our new laundry, storage space is not an issue - with a huge cupboard, we have plenty of room for all the laundry essentials, plus some added extras from other rooms! In the last episode of The Organised You TV, I revealed the new laundry room that we created ourselves as part of our home renovation. And in the second part of this reveal, I'm showing you inside our laundry storage cupboard.
I'm excited today to finally be giving you a tour of our new laundry room - it's been a long time coming! After we 'completed' our home renovation last year, we were left with 100s of little (and many not so little!) jobs to complete. One of those included the build of our entire laundry. A rather daunting task to say the least!
However, we'd been planning this new space for a long time, and knew exactly what we wanted - you may remember this post where I outlined my wish list of features and items I hoped to include. A detailed plan always makes any big project easier to dive into!
Do you dread doing laundry?
Do you feel overwhelmed or stressed about the baskets piled high with dirty washing, or the amount of sorting and folding you have to get through on a weekly basis?
Do you feel like you're tackling this chore solo, and feel frustrated that the entire process lies solely on your shoulders?
Laundry is one of those household chores that feels like there's never a real end to, as there always seems to be one of the stages needing your attention - whether it's the pre-sorting, the washing, hanging out the clothes, sorting, folding, ironing, putting away.... And if you let it get out of hand, it can take a huge amount of time and effort to get back on top of it!
It's been AAAALLLL about kitchen organising around these parts lately! And it's no surprise that with the release of my new guide Clever Kitchens, giving you heaps of tips and effective strategies for getting your kitchen more organised has definitely been my most important mission.
I am obsessed with kitchen organisation, and for good reason... not just because I'm a crazy organising lady. I know that getting your kitchen organised can save you a serious amount of time, effort and energy on a daily basis. A well-organised kitchen is going to leave you feeling more calm, content and happy.
It might seem strange to claim that an organised kitchen will make you feel happier, but I can honestly say, from both client and personal experience, that this is completely true. Because you spend so much time in your kitchen, having everything easy to find and easily accessible will cut down on your preparation, cooking and clean-up time. This gives you more quality time to be doing the things you really want to do. When everything is working for you in a space, it will inevitably make you feel more calm, content and energized. The kitchen is what many would consider 'the heart of the home', so it makes sense to have this space working for you as efficiently and effectively as possible. Right?
As some of you may be aware, I recently released my new guide 'Clever Kitchens'. After months of hard work behind the scenes, it was so exciting to finally be able to share it with you all!
Clever Kitchens is made up of a few components. Primarily, there is the Ultimate Guide - 11 detailed chapters of actionable tips and strategies to help you create a kitchen you'll love spending time in, and that will save you time and energy on a daily basis.
