Want a beautiful kitchen? Don’t we all? Well, your path to a streamlined, organized kitchen starts with a couple of simple tasks: cleaning and decluttering. And while organizing your kitchen can seem like a daunting project, you just have to set daily goals and then stick to them.
Tackle your cabinets and drawers by getting rid of dinnerware, pans, utensils and appliances you don’t use. Consider adding drawer organizers to areas that get messy fast (like a utensil drawer). After you’ve decluttered and organized, use a cleaning spray to wipe down the cabinet exteriors and interiors, drawers, and any open shelving.
Time to see what kind of cans are lurking at the back of your pantry. Choose a section and start by pulling everything out. Toss the expired food, and if there’s anything that’s still good but that you won’t use, put it in a bag to donate to a food pantry. Wipe down your shelves as you go and replace any shelf paper as needed.
Sinks and Counters
Take everything off your counter and decide if it needs to stay on the counter. If you only use your toaster on Saturdays, you can probably store it in one of your nice, newly organized cabinets. Deep clean your sink, faucet, drain, and garbage disposal.
Finish off your clean-a-thon by giving your hardworking appliances some love. First, check your fridge and freezer and throw out anything expired and things you know won’t get eaten. Once it’s good to go, clean the inside and outside of your refrigerator, and pull it out from the wall to vacuum behind it. Yay for increased energy efficiency! Next, tackle the stove by degreasing the stovetop and running the oven cleaning setting. If you have a hood, degrease that as well. Then wipe down the outside and inside of the microwave. Finish off by running the dishwasher with a cup of white vinegar to descale the interior.
Now your kitchen is pristine and organized. In fact, that’s just the sort of kitchen buyers are looking for.If you want to show off your kitchen and see what your home could score in our hot market, just reply to this email!
