How to organize a new kitchen

If you think about packing and unpacking your home, which room gives you the most stress? If you’re like most homeowners, your answer is probably the kitchen. Believe it or not, the kitchen is often the most-used room of the house. And that means it’s often the one with the most stuff. While your moving company can haul your kitchen items to your new house, it’s up to you to organize your new kitchen. But we’re here to help. Here are a few simple tips to make getting your new kitchen ready for all that cooking a breeze.

Survey the Layout

Every kitchen will have a different layout and different cabinets. This makes organizing it a unique challenge. Before you start unpacking, take a look around the kitchen. Open the cabinets and drawers to get an idea of the size of each space. Then, start thinking about where you do the most prep work. Cabinets and drawers near this spot should be left for cutting boards, tools, and utensils. Things you use the most should always be within easy reach. Then, use sticky notes to designate what each cabinet will hold.

Bring the Boxes In

Ideally, it would help if you had labeled your kitchen moving boxes thoroughly before the movers arrived. This makes unpacking simple and lets you organize the space more quickly. Bring the boxes into the kitchen and start unpacking each one into the designated areas you’ve picked in the kitchen. Start with just the essentials. This will help you decide if the layout is truly functional or if you need to shift things around a bit. And trust us…moving things around when the kitchen is half-unpacked is far easier than waiting until you’re all moved in!

As a general rule, but little-used items away in the cabinets, you won’t need access frequently. Otherwise, these items will take up valuable real estate in your kitchen and could decrease your productivity while you’re cooking. Remember, storing kitchen equipment in the garage is always an option, especially if you have a collection of holiday baking pans you only use once a year!

In Georgia, you can visit:

  • Savannah Historic District
  • Georgia Aquarium
  • National Center for Civil and Human Rights
  • Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest
  • Pin Point Heritage Museum

And much more. Let’s move to Georgia!

Keep Track of What Goes Where

It would take a while for layouts to stick in your mind, especially if you lived in your old home for a few years. But there is a way to make it easier—keep a list. Write down where you put each type of item. For example, baking sheets and dishes go under the stove, and measuring cups go in the middle drawer on the left side of the oven. Often, the act of writing it down will be enough to cement things in your mind.

No matter how prepared you feel for your upcoming move, it’s always easier with help. Schedule an estimate with our experienced and professional moving team, and let us take the stress out of your next move. We’ll take care of loading the truck to unloading your belongings at your new home, and everything in between. All you need to do is tell us where to go—Call 1-877-887-8248 to make an appointment.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
