If you ask people where they spend the majority of their time in their home, most would probably say their kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home and the main hub where, really, all the action happens. From starting the morning with a cup of coffee or a healthy breakfast to ending the day with a nourishing family meal, the kitchen starts and ends our days and sets the stage for a lot of scenes throughout our day. Whether you’re gossiping with girls over an afternoon glass of wine or sharing a sweet dessert with your kiddos after sundown, having an organized kitchen makes all the difference in your day-to-day operations, and that’s no exaggeration. See our kitchen organization ideas below.
