Kitchens are often the home to lots and lots of unnecessary clutter. It’s all too easy to collect way too many cooking tools, a thousand rarely-used spices, and duplicates of everything. And, no matter how large or small your kitchen may be, it can be one of the most challenging rooms in your home to organize. Check out these genius ways to organize a kitchen and be inspired to refresh your own space.
- The Spice Drawer Organizer
This easy-to-use item takes a simple drawer and makes it into the spice drawer of your dreams. Imagine all of your spices neatly organized and easily accessible. No more digging in the cabinets for just the right one.
2. Don’t Forget the Fridge
Instead of cluttering the side of your refrigerator with magnets that will never get used, add a magnetic strip to hold your knives, a peg board to display your pot holders, or do both. This truly genius hack is not only a 10/10 on the organization scale, but it’s also very cute. Such a simple concept can elevate your kitchen to Master Chef status.
3. Also Don’t Forget Your Doors
In small kitchens you’ve got to take advantage of every inch of space you have. Try using Command hooks to hang your measuring cups on the inside of your cabinet doors. This is a great way to keep these items accessible at all times.
Note: When hanging your command hooks, be careful to place them so that they won’t keep the door from closing properly.
4. Show Your Fruits & Veggies
Use a hanging basket to display your produce. This is an easy way to get these items out of the way AND is very visually appealing. Maybe it’ll even encourage your household to eat more fruits and veggies.
5. Upright Sheet Pans
This weekend DIY could save you so much headache. The ability to store baking pans in an upright position means that you can fit more into a cabinet, and you avoid the annoying clanking sounds when you’re trying to pull one out.
6. Lazy Susan to the Rescue
Lazy Susan, that clever girl. Who knew that using one of these on a cabinet shelf could result in an organizational miracle. Suddenly all the cooking necessities are available with the turn of a wheel. Thank God for no more digging and knocking everything over just to get to the coconut oil. *cue the hallelujah chorus*
7. Acrylic Fridge Organizers
Nothing says bougie like a perfectly organized refrigerator. These acrylic organizers basically turn your fridge into a very aesthetically-pleasing supermarket.
8. Hang up Your Cutting Boards…And Your Plants
Simply hang a few bars on the wall, a couple of ‘S’ hooks, and clear all the extra stuff off your countertops in a cute way. And while you’re at it, add some potted herbs to use for cooking.
9. Hang Your Trash Bags
Under the sink can be a scary place when you’re talking kitchen organization. Sometimes you open up those doors with the most hesitation, just waiting for whatever is lurking inside to tumble out and ruin your day. Alleviate some of the stress by using mountable paper towel holder for your trash bags. It will free up considerable space for you.
