Before we buy or order the kitchen, think about how many drawers you will need. Of course, you can have as many drawers as you can, but according to the size of the kitchen. Sometimes, drawers can be more convenient than cabinets.  

One of the factors is how many people live in the house. There is a rule to count people in the house plus at least two guests. 

Declutter everything!

The first thing you need to do is to throw everything out on the floor. Then, take a look at what you have. I am sure you will find something you forgot you have. The next step is to declutter everything into three groups. One is for the garbage, another one for donating, and the last one is what you want to keep. 

This process is very important because you will get rid of unnecessary things and you will know what you have in the kitchen. Everything is easier with a good plan. Think about what you want to keep in your drawers. If you want to keep pans or pots in drawers, you will need a deeper drawer. You can use the last one for the pans and pots. Another reason for keeping them in the lower drawer is because they are heavy. As we use utensils everyday, for every meal, put them in the first drawer. It’s easier for you, because you don’t have to bend down all the time.
