Take advantage of the showcases and shelves
Showcases and shelves are a practical solution as well as decorative. We allow you to create decorative compositions with our pieces (such as crockery and glasses) and also have them always accessible. If you want to make your order more attractive, group by colors and add some decorative detail like a vase with flowers. Maybe a basket of natural fibers to place cutlery, napkins, table linen, etc.
Stack dishes and glasses
For tableware and glasses, our advice is to stack these accessories by groups, as this will occupy less space. Boles with bowls, cups with cups, bowls with soup plates, flat with plains, glasses with glasses, etc. Not only will you optimize the space, you will also gain practicality on a daily basis and you will make the kitchen look more organized and decorative.

Label, sorts and groups together the different types of cleaning products by: for cooking, laundry, crystals, etc.
Do not overcharge
And, of course, to enjoy a well – organized kitchen, avoid accumulating accessories and products that take up unnecessary space. In this sense, our advice before starting to plan the order of your kitchen is to do cleaning and get rid of everything you do not need. Do you use it? Have you been in your kitchen for some time and practically do not use it? Do not waste space for things you do not need.
We also recommend to allocate a space (either inside the kitchen or in another outside room) to create a pantry in which to store your food. This way you will have more free space inside the kitchen.
Finally, we also recommend that you use an area for trash and recycling. A secluded corner away from moisture, heat, food and kitchen accessories.
