4 Psychology-Related Tips to Organizing Your Kitchen


It’s often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and if your kitchen is a mess, then it can definitely put a damper on your mood.  Here are several tips that you can use to organize your kitchen in an efficient and effortless manner:




We all have barriers when it comes to organizing our homes. For example, some people are more likely to pick up after themselves if their floors are visible than if they’re cluttered with junk. In other words, our own perceptions influence how we behave.


Use this knowledge of human behavior by making sure that there aren’t any piles of clutter or dirty dishes in sight while you’re cooking. Put away any items that aren’t going to be used for a long time, and immediately clear your countertops of everything else.






Another great tip is to buy a paper towel holder with a built-in roll dispenser. This will make it much easier for you to tear off the perfect amount of paper towels because there won’t be any messy rolls to deal with or hide from view under cabinets or in the pantry.





Make sure you keep one cabinet as close as possible to your cooking area open and bare for all those appliances you use repeatedly – such as a blender, mixer, electric can opener – so that they’re always within easy reach. Lazy Susan would be perfect for this role. This will help reduce the stress on your body during cooking by minimizing the amount of walking back and forth you have to do.






Use labels when organizing your kitchen cabinets, drawers, pantries, or fridge to make it easy for yourself (and even guests in need!) when looking for something – especially if you’re using a storage container that is clear. Labels are also great because it’s another way of practicing order which can reduce the anxiety in your mind when dealing with disorganization. You’ll always know where things are no matter how messy your kitchen looks!





These tips can help you prevent the anxiety you may feel in the kitchen, but make your space more bright, lighter, and cozier. Of course, you can use whatever comes to your mind, but make sure it’s for your best.
