Set up your kitchen in a way that's comfortable for you to work in and allows for easy workflow. Make sure the items you use most are accessible and items that you just use on occasion can be stored in shelves or cupboards that are harder to reach. I like to have a little stepladder or something I can stand on (being quite petite) so I can reach the higher shelves when necessary. I always have a tub of sea salt close to my stove and seasonings and utensils that I use regularly within easy reach.
