The holidays are upon us, and that means your kitchen will become one of the busiest rooms in your home. To stay organised in the kitchen this holiday season, it is important to keep your kitchen counters free of clutter to ensure that your meal prep goes as smoothly as possible.
A very convenient and affordable option involves sink accessories. There are many types of new sink models that come with various accessories that help you save space on your counters. The
sink comes with glass covers that can be used as cutting boards or a work surface. If you’re not looking for an entirely new sink, consider purchasing a large cutting plastic or glass cutting board to keep over top of your sink while it is not in use.
Put Small Appliances Away
There are some kitchen appliances that you use every day but only for a very short period of time, such as coffee makers, blenders and toasters. These items do not need a dedication space on your kitchen counter, and it is a good idea to put them away after you are done using them for the day. By keeping these small appliances off of the counters, you will have more space for food prep during the holidays.
If you don’t have much counter and cabinet space in the first place, take a look at some alternative storage solutions. Hanging baskets and racks are a great way to store items that would normally go on your kitchen counters. They are easy to access and they keep small items like spices and utensils out of the way. Kitchen caddies and karts are also great solutions, as they can be easily tucked away out of sight.
