5 Genius Ways to Declutter Your Kitchen Counters
If you chose AZ Royal Granite to install your kitchen counters, you know you own some of the most gorgeous granite in Arizona. The problem? You can’t see them! Kitchen counters are one of the most cluttered places in homes across America. We say we want counter space but fill it with unnecessary items that take up the precious space we demanded when touring homes.
Here are five easy tips to help you take back your kitchen counters and show them off in the process:
Buy a Mail Holder
We might now often associate mail with a messy kitchen counter, but did you know that it is one of the most common kitchen nuisances? Junk mail floods over our extra counter space. Old newspapers and coupons from last fall have somehow clung to life. Enough is enough. Getting a mounted mail holder may not solve our junk mail problem entirely, but it will keep it off your counters! Rid your countertops of mail and watch how less cluttered your kitchen will appear.
Put Frequently Used Items on a Tray
You use your sea salt grinder nearly every meal. You would never put up the olive oil because of how often you drizzle it in recipes. We all have those kitchen items that have found a home right by the stove. Make it official. Getting a small, artistic tray is the perfect way to make them seem like they belong where they are placed and not like they are forgotten or out in the open! Choosing a wooden tray adds a fantastic pop against any granite countertop!
Make a Coffee Station
Not only is creating a coffee station a huge hit with guests, but it can also make your kitchen counters appear significantly less cluttered. Moving that clunky coffee maker to its own special location accompanied by a few decorative pieces and some of your favorite coffee grinds and cups looks amazing and well thought out. Your coffee maker won’t just be a coffee maker; it will be a coffee station. If your countertops could talk, they would say thank you.
Place Your Dish Dryer Inside the Sink
There isn’t anything clunkier than a dish drying rack. Yet somehow, we all have one. Always. You don’t have to ditch it to make it disappear! When you’re done doing the dishes, simply pop your dish dryer into the sink. Your meals become almost nonexistent and will finish drying away from the countertop. It might seem like a simple trick, but it can save a lot of space and is a huge help if practiced often enough to become a habit.
Mount Your Paper Towel Holder
It might not seem like it takes up much space, but paper towel holders own the room. Placing a holder up underneath a cabinet is a space-saving timeless classic that truly will never go out of style! Stop by your local hardware store and get a budget-friendly paper towel bar. You’ll be happy such a simple change makes such a huge difference! Give those countertops the love they deserve.
