My Three Tips: Organized Kitchen
Tip #1: Clear the Countertops 
Kitchens are constantly being used, as a result, clutter builds up rapidly. One of the best things you can do to keep an organized Kitchen is to put away an item when it has been used. Napkins, bottles, etc., should be hidden from view. Only necessary appliances such as a microwave, toaster, etc., should remain on the counters. My recommendation is to only permit three appliances/items and two decorative items on the countertop at a given time. If you want to add a touch of glamour to your kitchen a lamp on the countertop is okay, just make sure it does not start building up! 

Tip #2: Organize According To The Way You Use The Space    
When you are organizing the Kitchen, group items that are used together. For example, place your teapot, teabags, teacups in one cabinet. By doing this you will know where things are and be able to use them efficiently. Spend some time understanding how you use your Kitchen, so you many put away items in places that work for you. 

Tip #3: Use Organizational Tools    
Buy a few storage aids such as storage boxes, jars etc., as these tools will help you keep your Kitchen organized. Remember, the organizational tools are meant to organize what is already in the Kitchen, not to give you the opportunity to buy more! 

(ABOVE) I love this Kitchen featured in Veranda Magazine. The beautiful stone sink adds some energy to the space. The shelves on opposite sides of the sink are very effective as they keep the basic Kitchen necessities within reach. The open shelves are perfect because, they prevent clutter! (BELOW 1) This Kitchen has a great flow. The way in which the cabinets are planned out, allow for easy access to items when cooking. In addition, the dark blue cabinets look very elegant against the white countertops and backsplash. (BELOW 2) I choose this Kitchen mainly for design. I love the dark wood floors and vintage stove. The island is very cool, I love the idea of not using typical bar stools. (BELOW 3) I choose this Kitchen mainly for design, but also because of the minimal amount of items on the countertops. This space doesn't feel like a Kitchen, but rather like a Living Room because of the colors, moldings used and built in Fridge! You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don't follow rules, just do.
