Putting on a holiday get-together can be a major headache. Not only do you have to deal with hosting a large, hungry crowd, but there’s a ton of cooking to do. There’s also a good chance your kitchen wasn’t built to accommodate prepping multiple meals at once, let alone that volume of traffic.

There are a handful of easy things you can do to make the process go more smoothly, such as serving dinner buffet style, using slow cookers where possible and letting your guests chip in and bring a dish of their own. But if you’re already committed to doing the majority of the work yourself, here are a handful of additional ideas to make the night a whole lot easier on you.

The longer we live in our homes, the more items we collect. The more stuff we have, the more storage we need. Often, all those doo-dads and whatnots get stuffed into a drawer somewhere or shoved onto a counter. This adds to your home’s overall clutter and disorganization. Kitchens are often the most notorious clutter-collectors, despite needing the most organization and space of any room in the house. If you’re beginning to forget what your countertops look like, make more storage space by implementing these clever tricks to get the most from your kitchen.

Building Up

Consider all the wasted space out of your reach. Even though you may need a ladder or step stool to reach it, taller shelves take advantage of the wasted space near the ceiling. Place a floor to ceiling shelving unit or install wall- or door-mounted shelves to store the items you may not use as often and add purpose to an area without cabinets. Do you have empty space above a window? Add a shelf or a new set of cabinets – perfect for that weird appliance you received for your wedding or birthday. The more cabinetry or shelving available for storage, the freer the counter space you have.

Hanging Out

Need a more convenient place to store your pots, pans, cooking utensils or mugs? Try utilizing the space above or below a shelf for neater storage. Installing hooks on which to hang your pots and pans can free up loads of room both on your stovetop and in your cabinets. Mugs are space-hogs in any glass and cup cabinets. Let them hang on a wall or beneath the cup shelf to allow more room for fragile drinkware and reduce clutter.

Pull-Out Organization

Pantry closets are often reduced to shelves of cans and food stuffs in no particular order. Give everything its own space with pull-out pantry cabinets. These long and thin shelves can store spices, boxes or cans with ease, ensuring your traditional non-sliding pantry shelves are only reserved for the larger food items. Pull-out cabinets are great for families with kids or people who are shorter, as you can more easily make use of the pantry’s full storage depth with accessible pull-out shelving.

With pull-out pantry cabinets, you can also easily tell when something didn’t make it back to its rightful place. By installing uniquely-shaped cabinets into which only certain items fit, your cabinets are less likely to grow disorganized again.
