There's always room for improvement in our kitchens. I'm not talking about decor or cooking in general, but the way our kitchen is organized. If you have a drawer full of kitchen utensils, cookbooks, and aluminum foil, it's time to give everything their own space. Wouldn't it be nice for all kitchen items to have a designated home? Easy access to spices, cleaning supplies, pots, and cutlery makes all the difference when it comes to food prep. If your kitchen organization skills don't spark joy, it's time to get organized and tidy.

Freeing up space on your countertop and kitchen island is a good idea. It's definitely a great feeling knowing you have plenty of space when you're ready to pull out your pots, pans, and cutting boards. Naturally, something a lot of us keep on our countertops is napkins. If you like the idea of not having paper towels as the focal point of your island, mount your paper towels.

Dish racks tend to create a crowded spot on countertops as well. If you're looking for a new dish rack, check out The Simplehuman steel frame dish rack. It's one of the most organized dish racks I've ever seen, and there's plenty of functions that keep your counter space clean, like an extendable drip tray.
If you like to host dinner parties, or just entertain in general, kitchen organization should be a priority. Give your dinner guests some reassurance that their meal is being made in a tidy kitchen. Not only is an organized kitchen pleasing to others, but it should make yourself happy knowing your favorite spot in your home is clean and organized.
If you're not sure where to start with your kitchen organization project, start with shelving. Make sure you have easy access to your pots and pans. After that, move onto kitchen drawers. Also, if your knives aren't in a knife block, add that to your organization list. Get your organized kitchen ready in time for the holiday season.
