The Solution: Lazy Susan

“Lazy Susans are really God’s gift to tight or awkward kitchen spaces. They’re perfect for spaces that would normally get lost in the back of a cabinet and fit nicely into corner spaces. To maximize space in Lazy Susans, use round containers such as spices and cans. Having an efficient kitchen means being able to locate any item in seconds, preventing the mood-ruining effects of frantically searching through drawers and cabinets. For guaranteed success, enter the kitchen organization process with the mindset that every item should have a designated home.” Wayne, PA, 610.783.3553, theorganizingprofessionals.com

The Solution: Pullout Pantries

“Interior storage is vitalin kitchen organization. Drawers, interior pullouts and corner units allow for easy access, and make use of every part of the space. Pullout pantries are a must-have for those seeking larger multipurpose storage in small spaces. Oftentimes, the problem with disorganized kitchens isn’t a lack of space, but an improper utilization of said space. Mentally dividing the kitchen into zones—such as preparation, cooking and cleaning—can help to identify organizational needs for different aspects of the kitchen. A perfectly organized kitchen ushers in a sense of serenity and balance, and changes the way one interacts with the space.” 230 N. Second St., 215.940.3110, poggenpohl.com

The Solution: Multifunction Tools

“To make a kitchen more organized, utilize multifunction tools. Appliances like the Wolf Convection Steam Oven, which combines steam, convection baking, smart cooking and reheating, save space and time. Think multifunction ovens, refrigerators with freezer drawers and under-the-counter storage units. Clear bins in various sizes are a must for places like pantries, fridges and drawers. Small spaces don’t have to mean small impressions, and organization is crucial in making a space look aesthetically pleasing.” 4050 S. 26th St., 866.987.2122, fretz.com
