The kitchen, along with the bathroom, is one of the places that gets the most dirty on a daily basis, so it is recommended that they be well organized and everything stored in its place. One of the ways to always have the kitchen well organized is to divide it into two spaces: cold zone and hot zone.
This makes our kitchen always tidy, because the different things in it will not mix. If, for example, we are going to cook a salad, only the cold zone will get dirty while the hot one will remain clean. Believe me that if you separate the room well, you will be surprised to see your kitchen clean for longer.
In one of the spaces hot things or things that require fire will be put. That is to say, the oven, the microwave, the stove or vitroceramic and everything that is for cooking.
In the cold zone, the dishes, the dishwasher, the refrigerator, the cutters and everything that does not require hot things will be placed. Normally, the cold zone is already established by the sink, so where the sink is located this zone will be.
