Tips for Saving Space and Organizing Your Kitchen

I probably don’t have to tell you twice that there are so many intricate, small things that can clutter up your kitchen. All these details can get in the way of having some semblance of order and organization to the madness. However, it’s not as hard as it sometimes seems to keep it all together. Here are some tips for saving space and organizing your kitchen.

  Containers

  • Place canisters on your counters: you can fill them with anything; baking ingredients, coffee, and even spoons and ladles. 
  • Have trays on counters: to round up clutter and give a sense of organization.
  • Label baskets and storage boxes: to always know where everything is placed.

  Cabinets

  • Swing-out cabinets: sometimes these let you fit and access more than you would have been able to otherwise.
  • Sliding cabinets: this kind is good for putting containers with dry goods in, or to have for your trash and recycling bins.
  • Mirrors: if you’re dealing with a small and/or dark/closed-in kitchen space, mirrors give the illusion of a bigger room with more light.
  • High cabinets: if you’re stretched for space, building upwards can really help you.
  • Plate racks: put these babies in your cabinets or built in an island to make your plates easier to access, and more organized.
  • Built in an island: for more storage space

  Drawers

  • Dividers: let you organize better
  • Diagonal dividers: also allows you to further organize your utensils, especially the large ones
  • In-drawer spice racks
  • In-drawer knife blocks

  Shelves

  • Built-in cookbook shelves: you can have these built in an island, your cabinets, etc.
  • Built in an island: for more storage space
  • Open shelving: if you’d like to replace some of your cabinets with this.

  Hang Pots & Pans

  • Towel bar: you can use this to hang pots and pans, using S-hooks.

  Etc.

  • Hidden outlets: these are sometimes on the bottom sides of cabinets, or inside them. 
  • Cake stand by the sink: so that the soaps, etc. have a cute little area of their own.
  • Built-in paper towel holder: saves space, looks better, and is most likely physically closer to you than it would be otherwise.
  • Chalk board: instead of having scraps of paper laying around with hurriedly-written notes, opt for this instead.
  • Multi-functional backsplash: You can install magnetic strips for knives and utensils, rods to hang mugs and things, and more.
  • Tucked-away seating: This alone can save a lot of space. 
  • Group similar items together organizing organizing   organizing
