With Darling Homes, your kitchen is built for efficiency from the start with a distinctively designed work triangle comprised of the fridge, sink and cooktop. This ensures everything is within reach from preparation, to cooking and cleaning.
This leading Texas homebuilder helps homeowners create a kitchen meant for everyday use by offering upgrades that help with organization, including silverware and knife drawers, trash pull-outs, wine glass and bottle storage and the choice to have pull-out drawers instead of shelves in bottom cabinets.
After purchasing and personalizing your Darling Homes gourmet kitchen, it’s time to start filling your space with cooking gadgets, cookbooks, pots and pans.
While moving in, it’s important to consider which items are most useful in your everyday life, from pots and pans, to dishware and food storage containers. These heavily-used objects are best kept within the cabinets closest to the work triangle.
Use this method throughout the kitchen, with frequently used items close at hand and lesser used objects further away to help create a natural flow for cooking new recipes and cleaning up. For example, keep plates, cups, mugs, utensils and other everyday tableware near the stovetop, fridge and dishwasher.
For essentials, such as coffee, tea, sugar and flour, find chic countertop or pantry containers with easy-access lids to help cut down on prep time and provide stylish storage space.
For larger utensils, such as spatulas, whisks and more, a countertop storage unit or designated drawer can provide ample space and store various sizes of items conveniently. Shelf organizers, spice racks and knife blocks help keep different kitchen necessities separate but easy to access for food preparation.
Real Simple magazine lists other tips and tricks to adopt for kitchen organization, like dividing drawers, using trendy baskets for additional storage, and keeping your countertops clear by hanging paper lists and calendars on the wall.
