HANG HOOKS ON CABINET DOOR INTERIORS

Install hooks on the insides of your kitchen cabinets, to hang things like oven mitts, tea towels, and flat utensils. For easy hanging, loop string through the ends of your utensils.

AVOID DRAWER ORGANIZERS

Avoid confining drawer organizers like silverware organizers, or utensils trays. Instead, opt for drawer separators that span the entire length and width of your drawers, to easily contain whatever you have now, and down the road.

 

DECLUTTER COUNTERTOPS

To maximize your useable counter space, limit the items permanently stored on your counter to the things you use each and every day.

 

CONSIDER OPEN SHELVING

If your dishes and glassware are beautiful, consider open shelving, rather than cabinets.

 

SILENCE CABINET DOOR SLAMMING

To eliminate the slamming of kitchen cabinets, adhere felt, furniture feet to the inside corners of your cabinets. This trick also works well for kitchen drawers.

 

ORGANIZE POT AND PAN LIDS

Repurpose a dish drying rack, or a plate rack, to store and organize your pesky pot and pan lids. Before investing in an organizing rack, check that all your lids fit a corresponding base.

 

ADD SHELVING WHERE NEEDED

Install additional shelves along unused walls, or between your existing cabinet shelves, to maximize shelf storage, and minimize wasted space.

 

ORGANIZE UNDER YOUR SINK

 Get rid of duplicate cleaning supplies, move specialty cleaning products to a supply closet, and use a storage rack to contain your most used kitchen, cleaning supplies.

 

STORE APPLIANCES IN DRAWERS

Store rarely used appliances in tall, pull-out drawers, so that the entire drawer depth is equally as accessible.

 

UTILIZE ORGANIZING RACKS

To create another, second level of storage, place plate racks above your existing stacks of dishes.

 

REARRANGE SHELVES

Inside of your cabinets, rearrange your shelves to eliminate wasted, leftover space between shelves.
