Organizzare living e cucina: tips e must have

The living room and kitchen are without a doubt the most used spaces in the house during the day. Therefore, their organization must be optimal, in order to take advantage of the spaces in total comfort.

The organization does not only affect the "space" factor, but also the time. In fact, if an object is arranged with criteria, it is quick to find it and is used more willingly. In this way you save precious minutes to be used in pleasant activities or moments of relaxation!

The choice of containers is essential especially if you need - or want - to display things. Combine them like this:

  • containers of the same color must have different sizes;
  • mixes different materials and textures such as glossy and opaque, rough and smooth, transparent and material;
  • play with the sizes by combining containers of different heights.

  • helps you carry your most succulent dishes from the stove to the dining table;
  • you can use it to store cleaning products and accessories in glass bottles and closed containers, so as to move them where you need them most
  • it can become a coffee station to move between the dining area and the kitchen: use the upper shelf to arrange the coffee machine and the others to store pods, capsules and cups.

Indispensable in the kitchen, hooks and organizers for utensils are very practical to have everything we need available while we prepare meals. In the living room, on the other hand, the hooks can be used to hang spectacular hanging plants, garments to keep near the entrance (provided this is in the same room) or mobile lamps.
