If you have decided it’s finally time to update your kitchen, a remodel is the perfect way to create a modern and sleek layout for the room. Once you’ve made the commitment to getting a kitchen remodel, you’ll need to know a few helpful hints before the job begins. Here are some ways you can organize all the items from your kitchen before our professionals at Hearn Construction arrive at your home in Indiana.

The most important step for removing items in your kitchen is to organize which items you use every day. Place items like utensils, plates, mugs, and glasses into a box labeled “everyday items.” Labeling will help you find what you need easily and also determine which items are necessary to keep nearby.

For the next step, you’ll want to take all your belongings out of the cabinets and categorize those items as well. This is an opportune time for you to discard any broken items or donate anything you no longer use. This will allow you to have even more space once your kitchen remodel is complete. You can take the boxes of nonessential items (punch bowls, waffle makers, etc.), and store them in a basement or closet so that the kitchen remodelers have room to walk in and out of your kitchen.

After your kitchen remodeling project is finished, try to keep similar items together when you’re placing everything back in your new cabinets. A suggestion is to mimic the aisles in the grocery store—categorize breakfast food, canned food, and baking materials on the shelf. Another suggestion is that you put the items you use the most often in the cabinets that are easiest for you to reach.

To decorate your newly improved kitchen, you can buy plastic frame magnets to hang family photos on your refrigerator. You can keep your countertops free from any clutter by purchasing a sturdy organizer for the mail, coupons, and recipes.
