Organizational Development

The number one regret of homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO and nationwide who recently renovated their kitchen is not investing sufficiently in storage and organization. By prioritizing storage and organization, homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO can not only create a visually stunning space but also ensure functionality and convenience tailored to their needs. 

Homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO can avoid buyer’s remorse by better understanding storage and organization options that make using the kitchen easier, and more enjoyable and achieve the look, feel and functionality that they want and need. Homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO  should consider storage and organization options for each major kitchen zone. These zones include the sink, range/cooktop, and refrigerator(s). 

Many well-designed kitchens feature a sink area in between the refrigeration area and the cooking area. The kitchen sink is the most used appliance in the home and the workhorse of most kitchens. This is why it almost always makes sense to position the sink between the cooking area and the refrigerator.   

The sink area also is often where homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO prepare meals and clean up afterward. A well-designed kitchen typically locates the dishwasher and recycling bins near the sink. When countertop space is limited, homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO are well served to consider a workstation sink. Workstation sinks save countertop space by consolidating common kitchen tasks in the sink area and use the sink basin to store cutting boards, drying racks, colanders and grids and other accessories. They also help make preparing meals and cleaning up easier. 

Other items that homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO should consider storing in the sink area are cutlery, plates, glassware, cleaning supplies, cutting boards, and small appliances. 

The cooking center typically includes a range or cooktop, oven(s), microwave/steam oven and refrigerated drawers (a great option to consider). Storage considerations for the cooking area should include items associated with meal preparation. It makes sense to have clean countertop space near the cooking area that allows homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO to place hot pots and pans quickly after coming out of the oven or off the cooktop. Storage considerations for the cooking center include pots, pans, spices, cooking utensils, potholders, serving pieces, bowls, and other items that are used to transport food to the dining area.   

Items for homeowners in Colorado Springs, CO to consider storing in the refrigeration area include small appliances such as can openers, food processors, mixers, mixing bowls, baking items, bread makers, instant pots and similar items used to prepare and/or cook food. Homeowners that want the benefit of clean countertops should consider appliance garages to house small appliances. Other items to consider in the refrigeration area are pantry items, condiments, and cookbooks.
