Appliances You Always Use

For appliances that you frequently use (almost on a daily basis), the best thing to do is place them on countertops.

If you keep them inside the cabinet, you will have to pull them and put them back every time. This eats up too much space and effort on your part.

On the other hand, if you place them on countertops, you can use them readily without all the hassle.

Appliances You Rarely Use

Meanwhile, there are kitchen appliances that you rarely use or have used only one time. These are usually appliances like waffle irons, ice cream makers, popcorn makers, etc.

If you’re not ready to give them up just yet, then consider storing them in the attic or basement. Make sure to organize them in a bin so that they don’t get damaged.

You can also opt to donate or sell these appliances if you think they will not serve you anymore.


Instead of placing linens and tablecloths in the cabinet, it’s better to designate a linen closet for these. Otherwise, they may be put at risk for accidental spills and drips.

They also take up unnecessary space you can reserve for other kitchen essentials.

Outdoor Serving Items

You will only use outdoor serving items and party decors once in a while. Hence, it’s best to move them to the kitchen storage area instead of letting them take up your cabinet space.
