KITCHEN ORGANIZATION HACKS
how to organize your kitchen like a professional
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.
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.
Inside of your cabinets, rearrange your shelves to eliminate wasted, leftover space between shelves.
