Being in the kitchen, cooking food for your family should be an enjoyable experience. But if there’s one thing that can cause instant frustration, it’s disorganization. And one of the areas that can quickly become a disorganized mess is the silverware drawer.
Learning how to organize your silverware drawer doesn’t take a lot of time, but it does deliver a major impact that can be felt every time you open the drawer to retrieve your forks, spoons, knives and other utensils. If you are unsure of where to begin, then here is our guide for how to arrange your silverware drawer, so you can always find the utensils you need.
Regardless of how clean you think your silverware drawer is, you will no doubt be surprised by the amount of debris you find once everything is out of it. So, removing everything from your silverware drawer gives you an opportunity to give it a thorough cleaning. It also allows you to take inventory of everything you have stored in there. Damaged items can be tossed out and those things you no longer use or want can be donated to help open some space.
Take a tape measure and take measurements of the drawer’s interior, including the width, height, and depth. This will help you determine what type and size of drawer organizer will work and fit best.
There are a variety of different types of drawer organizers out there to choose from, so it pays to compare them to find the type that will work best for you. For instance, do you want a bamboo cutlery tray or a clear plastic tray with rubber lining? Do you want a single drawer insert with multiple compartments or do you want to customize your drawer using modular organizer trays?
Before returning your silverware and other utensils to the drawer, give them all a quick wipe down. This will ensure that they’ll be nice, clean, and ready to be used.
Now that you know how to organize your silverware drawer and are using a good quality organization system, it will be so much easier to keep up on your drawer’s tidiness.
