How to Set Up and Organize Your Kitchen after a Move

Share This

Kitchen in a New HomeThe kitchen is the heart of a home. It’s the place where a lot of time is spent and memories are made. After you’ve unpacked and set up your bedrooms, the kitchen should be the next room you tackle. Though you’ll probably be too exhausted to show off your culinary skills the first few nights in your new home, you will truly appreciate a comfortable, functional, organized, and ready space to eat your take out, bowl of cereal, sandwich, or toast to moving into your new home.

While you toured different homes in Las Cruces NM, you probably envisioned where you would put your furniture, place your favorite artwork, or hang up your flat screen. Before you unpack anything you should definitely map out where you want everything to go in kitchen. We also suggest wiping down and cleaning your cabinets, drawers and counters before your start putting things away. Unpack your appliances and get your fridge and freezer together. Next, unpack your basic but essential kitchen supplies such as your dish towels and cloths, pot holders, and silverware. Stack and place your bowls, cups, glasses, and plates neatly on shelves that are at eye level since you will be using the most and you’ll want these to be easily accessible. It also makes sense to place your cups in the cabinets nearest the fridge and the coffee cups closest to your coffee maker. Put your pots and pans in cabinets near the oven and stove. Store your spices, oils, and seasonings in your pantry or a cabinet that is near where you’ll prepare meals and is also easily accessible. Your pantry should house your condiments, cereal, canned goods, and dry foods. Kid friendly snacks can go on lower shelves so your kids can reach them. Special occasion dishes can go in the cabinet above your fridge and your heaviest items should go on the lower shelves. Placing them here will hopefully avoid damage should they fall. Bakeware such as your measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls, cooking cutter, mixer, cake pans, and rolling pins should be positioned in your baking area. Place any dishwashing soap, cleaning sprays, sponges, and other cleaning items under the sink. If they contain hazardous materials and can cause harm to your kids or pets we suggest placing them on a higher shelf that is out of reach for them.

We hope these tips will help you unpack, set up, and organize after your move. And from our French Brothers family to yours, welcome to our homes in Las Cruces NM community of Mesilla Vineyard Estates  or Sonoma Ranch – Verano.
