Homes+ (Australia) - - BEFORE & AFTER -

No-one likes look­ing at piles of dirty plates and pots, least of all your guests. A sep­a­rate, well-equipped but­ler’s pantry is one of the best an­swers to this prob­lem, where you can stash dirty dishes and any un­sightly cook­ing prep. Sim­ply close the door!

Give the fridge a quick clear-out be­fore do­ing a su­per­mar­ket shop, to en­sure you don’t dou­ble up on prod­ucts, and that noth­ing scary is lurk­ing in the bot­tom of a drawer. On that note, keep leftovers in clear con­tain­ers so they are not for­got­ten. Bench­tops can eas­ily be­come clut­tered. En­cour­age peo­ple to put items away af­ter us­ing them, and do a quick tidy once a week to keep on top of this. The kitchen can be a good space to keep a wall plan­ner or cal­en­dar, to help the fam­ily re­mem­ber im­por­tant dates. Us­ing the fridge or a pin­board for ap­point­ments, in­vi­ta­tions and tick­ets can help, too.
