Shelley Craft shares some of her simple tips to help you declutter your kitchen.
Clear your countertops
Your kitchen countertop can become the family collection area for various odds and ends, making it difficult to keep clean. Removing unnecessary items from your benchtop can create the look of a larger and cleaner space. Limiting your countertop to only a few items, such as a vase of flowers or a fruit bowl can be an easy approach to change the look of your kitchen.
Repacking food into more storage friendly and stylish containers can do wonders in transforming your pantry. Labeling containers helps make your kitchen more user friendly, as well as getting rid of unnecessary food packets which don’t keep your food fresh. Introducing a storage system is a functional and effective way to reduce the look of clutter.

Give items their own home
Utilising storage space can be one of the most essential steps in decluttering your area. This can be done through clearing drawers and providing space for each item. Designating every item an area such as cookware, silverware, containers and small appliances can make your kitchen a brand new space.
Create a communications board
Most of the clutter in your kitchen accumulates because of daily life. Keys, paperwork and timetables can quickly collect and usually end up in the home’s most-used area, the kitchen. To help store and organise these items, introduce a communications area. This step can be as simple as a blackboard with reminders, dinner ideas or a weekly schedule with key rings. Keeping the board either on the back of your pantry door or on the fridge will minimise mess on your countertops.
