How to organize your kitchen
There are many ways to keep your kitchen organized. And few projects pay dividends in the future like kitchen organization! Little compares to the pleasure of seeing all your favorite foods and ingredients organized and ready for use in your favorite recipes. And it's even better when your organized kitchen complements your home decor! Good kitchen organization is especially important to deal with small kitchen spaces, as it helps maximize the usability of your space. So, as you shop for kitchen storage solutions, keep both design and functionality in mind to get the most out of your kitchen.
Kitchen storage containers
There are many options when it comes to containers for kitchen storage. But essentially, they all do the same thing. Containers help keep your kitchen organized and important items easy to find. In some cases, they protect ingredients like flour or rice from moisture, heat, or pests. Our favorite kitchen containers include bright-colored tiffins and handwoven baskets. From Senegal to Oaxaca, these baskets are made using sustainable methods. They not only help organize your kitchen, they look great doing it!
Creative Kitchen Storage Ideas:
Spice Boxes to Organize your Kitchen
Whether you rely on a few essential spices to flavor every meal, or embark on complex culinary journeys requiring a wealth of different spices, a way to organize these ingredients is a must. This organization will go a long way in making your kitchen experience more enjoyable. On one hand, organized cupboards are visually pleasant and make finding that one spice you're looking for much easier. On the other hand, having spices within easy reach while you're busy cooking is essential to streamline the culinary process. After all, you don't want to overcook your dish because you were busy looking for the pepper! So, opt for spice dishes and cabinets that make your life easier. Some dishes keep one or two spices, so these are ideal for the spices you use most frequently. You can keep these within reach on the countertop or on your table to season meals. Alternatively, you can use a spice cabinet, which will help you organize numerous spices. You can keep this cabinet tucked away in a cupboard when not needed and bring the entire assortment out to use when you're cooking. That way, all your spices are in one place!
Tiffins for Kitchen Storage
Looking for one kitchen storage solution to store leftovers, meal prep, and take homemade meals out, mess-free? Tiffins make all of this easy. We love their versatility, and especially their beautiful, vibrant designs. These stainless steel containers are stackable and close securely. If you're prepping for a meal or for a long cooking process, the separate compartments let you keep ingredients separated until you're ready to combine them. This is also a perfect way to organize if you're taking a homemade meal out! By keeping parts of the meal separate, you can help food stay fresher. For example, store rice or a salad in one compartment, and sauce or dressing in another. Opt for tiffins with handles for an easy way to take your meals on the go. These hand painted tiffins are our favorite creative way to organize a kitchen.
Wine Caddies for Elegant Storage
Don't forget the drinks! After all, kitchens aren't only about eating; you need a way to organize your beverages too. And whether you're taking a bottle to a neighbor's house, or just taking it to enjoy it with a sunset on the back porch, you have options. Consider a wine caddy, which makes transporting wine and glasses a foolproof affair. Wouldn't it be nice if you could carry a wine bottle and four glasses in one hand? No more endless trips to the wine cabinet, and no more broken glasses. And to top it all off, our wine caddies come in vibrant colors to reflect your festive mood. But what if you're taking a bottle across town, or as a gift? The brown paper bag from the store could undermine your tasteful beverage selection. So, go with a beautiful wine tote or bottle basket to give your bottle the presentation it deserves. These tasteful items also help you protect your bottle while out and about.
