How To Declutter Kitchen Countertops

From the Desk of Clearissa Coward’s Command Center via Divinely Organized

How do you keep your kitchen counters clutter-free? I use trays to coral my counter stuff, as well as glass containers including fish bowls house the utensils I use often. You can take a look at my kitchen counters here. But I got to thinking…I’m not the only organizing and decluttering genius around (okay stop laughing). So I decided to bring you some great countertop organization from my fellow decluttering geniuses (I hear giggling again). So get yourself something to snack on and sit back and be mesmerized.

First we have Christina over at No. 29 Design decluttered her counters in one of the most creative ways I’ve seen lately. Not only is her system unique but it is also functional and very cute. The black rail system is genius and so very pretty. She has accomplished the impossible and has nothing on her countertops. I am impressed.

Josh Becker over at Becoming A Minimalist has some great common-sense ideas for decluttering kitchen counters. He suggests and I live by these rules daily,

  1. Removing the unnecessary
  2. Relocate anything that does not belong, in other words, put things where the belong
  3. Give all items a proper home, in other words, put things where they belong

…and there’s more. Head on over there and read Josh’s complete article and put his ideas to good use.

Decluttered Kitchen Counters

I was very excited when I found Hooked on houses. The wall shelves, hanging pots and trays used make this kitchen not only uncluttered but very attractive. Having very little on the counters allow the black chalkboard paint to be showcased. That’s right, I said chalkboard paint. Head over and get some really good ideas and the best part – they are budget friendly as well. And you know I’m all about a budget-friendly project.

Finally, Emily from Lived Renewed makes me feel like a clutter bug. She has absolutely nothing on her countertops. When I say nothing, I mean NOTHING! I’m not yelling at you, simply making a point.  I love organization; however, I cannot live without my EVO and sea salt at my fingertips.  But moving right along, Emily has some great tips to show you how to live and function with totally clear countertops. It’s amazing to me. Well, I did find a tea kettle and a small plant in the photo. Whew…that’s better. 🙂

There you have it. Some very clever bloggers/organizers have shared different ideas to declutter your countertops. Of course, I could have added articles that showcased the all of the beautiful and fancy appliance garages, and spice drawers but I focus on using what you have to make your life better on a budget. Would I love one of those really fancy kitchens? Of course I would but for now, I am making the best of what I do have and you should too. Go ahead and clear those counters and I’ll see you soon.

If you have any tips or tricks for decluttering countertops, please share. I would love to hear your ideas.

Remember to share…

    Hi Clearissa,

    Nice to see so many kitchen countertops ideas – all in one place 🙂

    I think if you have enough space, you could add a few essential things, though hang them up if possible. For those with lesser area or space, you need to stack things inside to give a neater look.

    Initially we had a smaller work area, so my kitchen counter needed more work space, which made me keep everything organized in a nearby shelf, which was easily accessible. Now that I have a little larger area, I’ve taken out a few essential items, though prefer to keep the work area all clean and empty.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    Hi Harleena,

    I agree, you have to leave some space for food prep. I don’t have a huge kitchen so I have to coral and organize my small appliances and utensils in creative ways. As always, thanks for stopping by. 🙂
