A fantastic place to get started decluttering your kitchen is to get the kitchen drawers arranged. They aren’t often seen (assuming they can close!) but are responsible for the huge majority of our kitchen clutter.
Do you start your drawers and find a jumbled mess? When you open the silverware drawer are you currently confronted with a jumble of silverware, napkins, and seemingly random items?
Besides being able to maintain our clutter and enabling further disorganization, having messy kitchen drawers can waste time since we scour through them in search of the one thing that we require. By being cluttered, the drawers also hide duplicates and make eliminating kitchen clutter harder; if we cannot lay everything out and see what all we’ve we are more prone to keeping what from the drawers and trying not to be concerned about it – but we can resolve this quickly and easily!
Start organizing first
Firstthere are a few general guidelines which will allow you to decide what to keep and what to get rid of or move to some other storage area. This is based on how long it has been since a product was used by you:
Over a year: Get rid of this clutter! There should not be some reason to keep them if it has been more than a year.
Nearly 1 year: You should probably look at getting rid of everything it is – but you may want to maintain it if it’s used for holidays. These items can be safely transferred out of the”busy” section of your kitchen and saved somewhere long term if only used annually.
6 weeks: Again, you probably want to check at eliminating these items unless there’s some recurring date that occurs a few times a year.
1 month: All these items need to be looked at for a choice to be made. Maybe they can be transferred to a more long term storage space if they’re in a”high traffic” drawer. Some of these items might have to be discarded.
1 day per week: All these items make up the very significant part of your kitchen and should be set in the drawers simplest to access and nearest to where they are used. These are items like silverware, salt & pepper, mixers, etc..

Start to fall apart
Have their tails slip out
None of these is a fantastic outcome to the kitchen drawers, consequently, if you are searching for quality in drawers, then you need to ensure that they meet specific criteria. For example, does the drawer have:
Properly rabbited corners
Properly dadoed side bits
A suitable glued base
Simple screws holding it together or is it dowled
Is the wood the proper thickness

So as to assure that your kitchen shelves or drawers – or some other heavily utilized drawer will continue, the drawer must have the following attributes:
Proper dovetailing cuts
Suitable wood inventory
When you are checking the kitchen drawers to ensure that they are properly built make sure you
Look across the sides and corners to assure that the wood is straight.
View the timber grain that ought to run in one direction and be free of knots that weaken the wood.
Assess the corners to assure that the kitchen drawers are appropriately dovetailed and that the cuts are both tight and well-fitted.
Look in the bottom piece to ensure it was dadoed – a small quantity of timber was removed from the foundation to accommodate a base piece of wood that is glued in place on closing construction.
Consider the slip hardware to guarantee that it is constructed from high-quality metal and that it has a full ballrace with ball bearings on the sides.
Make certain that the wood inventory is at least 9-ply birch or other hardwood for longevity.
If the drawers – kitchen, agency or chest – are correctly constructed to those exacting standards you will have a piece of furniture or kitchen setup that will last for years which will only require occasional dusting.
