Tips on Keeping the Drawers in Your Kitchen Organized When it comes ot organizing the kitchen, most people would agree that organizing the kitchen drawers is way down on the list of priorities. However, it is an important aspect to consider to make your kitchen as efficient as possible and to avoid clutter collecting on the work surfaces. Most people normally just shove all their various pieces of equipment and cutlery in a haphazard fashion into the drawers. Organizing you drawers will allow you to maximize the usable space on the kitchen worktops and you will be less likely to waste time trying to search for a particular utensil. Instead, everything will be to hand and you can get on with the more important jobs. Here are some tips for organizing your drawers. First of all take all the drawers and empty the contents onto your kitchen surfaces. This will allow you to start sorting according to the item rather than just creating a more organized mess within the drawers. Not they are empty, start with the drawer closest to the kitchen stove. In this one you will want to put the following items; oven mitts, hot plates, trivets and hot plates. Any other equipment that you regularly use for baking and holding hot utensils can go in here as well. The next drawer closest to the stove needs to contain all the cooking tools. In this way you can work around the stove with all your equipment at hand rather than moving all over the kitchen, wasting time. Items you should put in here include serving spoons, ladles, wooden spoons and a small chopping board. Do you do much baking? If so, then dedicate a drawer to your baking equipment. Items such as rolling pin, sifter, basting brush and wire whisks all go in this one. This one should be close to one of your worktops or a kitchen island, if you have the luxury of one of those. The next is to look at the cutlery or silverware drawer which is normally below the cupboard that stores all of you dinnerware, such as crockery and plates. Only items such as cutlery, serving spoons and chopsticks are allowed in this draw. A drawer for serving items and table accessories such as coasters, napkin rings and wine serving items is useful. This allows you to keep all those finishing touches to the serving place in one area. Lastly, if you do have any items left over, you are allowed one miscellaneous drawer. You have to make sure, however, that this one does not slowly start to fill up with clutter. it is very easy to do and something you should guard against if possible.
Tips for Selecting Kitchen Drawer Pulls Whether you are replacing your kitchen cabinets or not, new kitchen drawer pulls are a great way to change up the look of your kitchen without spending a lot of money. Kitchen drawer pulls can take just about any shape, color, or style you can think of, and they do not take a lot of time to install. However, selecting the right kitchen drawer pulls does involve making many decisions. You have to think about the style of the hardware compared to the style of the drawers. Then you have to think about the weight and size of the drawers to determine what size pulls you need. You also have to consider the various materials that kitchen drawer pulls are made out of. With all of these decisions, how can you know which drawer pulls will look best in your kitchen? Here are some tips to figuring it all out. Hardware Style Style is one of the most obvious things when it comes to décor of any kind. The way the hardware looks in the drawers it will go on is certainly very important. It should match the rest of the kitchen and complete the look, much like earrings or a necklace completes your personal look. Kitchen drawer pulls are like the finishing touches on a beautiful kitchen, and they can enhance the beauty of the kitchen if they are selected properly or look glaring and out of place if the wrong decision is made. When considering style, just think about the overall style of the kitchen. If you decided on an antique look, then antique drawer pulls are the answer, but if you have a very modern or contemporary look, then you will need something much more sleek and newer. Another part of choosing a style is the kind of kitchen drawer pull you select. Drawer pulls can either be knobs or handles, depending on which style you prefer. You may even want to take into consideration which of the two types feels better in your hand. Materials Another important option that is related to style is the material. Metal kitchen drawer pulls are the most popular right now, but many people opt instead of glass or plastic pulls. Metal pulls will last quite a bit longer than glass or plastic, although they are quite expensive and can be a bit limited in terms of color. However, what metal pulls lack in color, they make up for in the ability to have very ornate carvings and designs. Glass pulls have the benefit of offering a wide selection of colors and very intricate designs. In fact, people who really want a unique type of hardware for their kitchen or bathroom will probably want to opt for glass because of the many choices that are available. Plastic drawer pulls are the least expensive option, and they may offer many different colors and designs also, but often they are very cheap and do not last a long time. Be prepared to change the hardware out again in a couple of years if you opt for low grade plastic. More durable and expensive plastic may last longer than a couple of years. Drawer Size Finally, remember to take into account the size of the drawers. This part has two sides to it. First, think about the overall size of the pull and the size of the drawer face. The pull should be proportional to the front of the drawer. Second, think about how heavy the drawer is and how easy or difficult it is to pull out. Kitchen drawer pulls that are too small will not work well with very heavy or large drawers.
