  1. 5 Steps to Keep Your Kitchen Organized

    5 Steps to Keep Your Kitchen Organized

    The kitchen is often the gathering space for the entire home. Keeping your kitchen organized is key to making it seem open, clean, and inviting. Here are some of our favorite tips for doing so.

    • Everything should have a place. One of the first things you should do when organizing your kitchen is put everything in its place or create a spot for the item to go in. Use drawer organizers for kitchen utensils.
    • Put small appliances away. We love small appliances, however, if you have a lot of them, consider putting them in a cabinet. This will make a huge difference in the appearance of your countertops and really open up the space. Plus, you will have extra space to prepare delicious meals.
    • Use wall space to store everyday items. If you have some character on your walls, consider using floating shelves and hooks to hang up everyday items. Not only will you have easy access to items you use daily, you will also showcase your beautiful walls.
    • Incorporate a workspace. Adding a small desk or designating a certain part of the countertops for a workspace provides multiple benefits. Children love doing homework in the kitchen because it is the hub of the house and there is easy access to snacks. You will also have a spot to write recipes and pay bills.
    • Organize based off of your needs. Only you understand how you use the kitchen. Keep this in mind when storing plates, glasses, food, etc. Make your kitchen unique to you.

  2. Spring Clean Your Kitchen

    Spring Clean Your Kitchen

    Warmer weather is on its way and with that comes spring cleaning to prepare for a new season. We understand the importance of keeping a clean kitchen and want to provide you with some tips for spring cleaning your kitchen.

    Deep Clean Appliances

    • Refrigerator. How many times have you accidentally left food in your fridge past its expiration date? It is recommended that you deep clean your refrigerator every season. If you don’t have time to do that, definitely schedule a deep cleaning session with your fridge two times a year.
    • Dishwasher. A dishwasher is constantly running and cleaning dishes with soap, so it should clean itself automatically, right? Nope. Not cleaning your dishwasher properly can lead to it not working as effectively. We recommend cleaning your dishwasher every four to six weeks.
    • Microwave. A messy microwave is not only unpleasant to look at, but it can actually ruin the effectiveness of it. You should wipe down the inside of the microwave daily and steam clean about once a week.
    • Range and oven. The range and oven do not need to be cleaned every day, only as needed.

    Deep Clean Surfaces

    • Countertops. Countertops should be cleaned daily, especially before and after preparing food on the surface.
    • Pantry. Sometimes, pantries can get very messy and filled with food you do not remember buying. The pantry should be cleaned whenever you notice it getting too messy.
    • Walls. If you start to notice your walls getting dusty, vacuum them every few weeks.
    • Floors. Vacuum your kitchen floor regularly to keep it clean. Cleaning hardwood floors depends on what type of finish you have.

    Are you planning a dream kitchen remodel? We’ve compiled a list of our favorite, luxurious kitchen must-haves to inspire your remodel.

    • Counter-depth refrigerator. If you have received tailored, customized cabinetry, you will most likely want to opt for a counter-depth refrigerator. This will ensure that the lines you have created in your kitchen with custom cabinets are maintained and the sleek look you desire is attained.
    • Big sink. Typically, sinks run about 8 inches deep. If you would prefer a little extra space, purchasing a sink that is 10 inches deep and very wide makes a big difference. The extra depth enables you to keep some dishes in the sink that you do not feel like washing quite yet and prevents splash back when cleaning.
    • Drawer dishwasher. Using a drawer dishwasher will enable you to run a partial load. Plus, you can wash your most used items daily, while waiting for the other drawer to fill up.
    • Convection steam oven. Convection steam ovens are a great way to cook your food. It works by circulating the hot air to provide a more even cooking experience. Cooking with steam-ovens are actually better for you. The reason is they retain more moisture and vitamins than food that is baked/broiled.
