Here are 4 simple tips to get your kitchen ready for the traffic that the fall brings!

Organizing the highs and lows

Running the kitchen means foresight regarding who can and can’t reach vital items. Do you have helpful lunch packers? Consider organizing your pantry so they can reach their snacks efficiently and independently contribute to their lunches.

Or maybe you need to monitor little hands and put some of the prime inventory out of reach. You know who you are!

Prepare the homework station and/or breakfast bar

Your kitchen’s seating plan might need some rearranging for the traffic both in the morning and after school/work to manage a workload transition. Everyone is going to be moving around the busiest room in the house at the same time. Save yourself the stress and coordinate the landing zones appropriately.

Create a visual schedule

Summer simplicity might slip away from you this fall. New and exciting opportunities are on the horizon and it’s important to keep everyone on the same page. Our clients have been thrilled to utilize chalk board organizers for the whole family to see and enjoy a stylish addition to the cabinetry.

Establish your intake strategy

The reality is in order to keep a clutter-free kitchen you will need to establish a location for everything that flows into the kitchen at the end of the day. Bags, shoes, coats, etc. might try to sneak their way into the kitchen but your intake strategy can manage that.

These are among the few things you can consider to prepare your kitchen for the fall. Do you have any other ideas that you think others could benefit from? Share them in the comments below.
