Kitchen Cabinet Organization Ideas

Place hooks underneath cabinets to hold mugs above the countertop, or hang a stemware rack in the same spot for wine glasses. This will free up considerable cabinet space. You could also hang adhesive hooks on the inside of cabinet doors or pantry doors to hold tools such as measuring cups, oven mitts or other kitchen gadgets. Consider using wall space or a ceiling rack to hang pots and pans. Keep in mind that any space you can use to hang something will free up flat space inside a cabinet.

Kitchen Cabinet Organization Ideas

Organization is Key Cookbook author Sheri Castle, whose most recent book is The New Southern Garden Cookbook: Recipes for Enjoying the Best from Homegrown Gardens, Farmers’ Markets, Roadside Stands and CSA Farm Boxes, has organized her kitchen into task-oriented work zones. “For example,” she says, “I keep all of the items I use for baking in one drawer, all items for measuring and mixing in one drawer, and all knives and cutting tools together in another drawer. When I’m ready to cook, everything I need is in one spot, ready to grab and go. This organization makes prep work quicker because I don’t have to dig around for things. It also makes clean up quicker, because I know exactly where everything should go when I’m done.

Commandeer the Sink Cabinet Intrusive plumbing pipes, the sink bottom, and pullout hoses can make bringing order beneath the kitchen sink a particular challenge. Choose stackable acrylic or wire shelving that fits beside and below the sink U pope to make the most of available space. Some wire bin units slide out to make it easy to retrieve items at the back. Add storage bins, shelves, and hooks inside doors for more storage, and consider including some specialty storage such as a holder for plastic grocery bags. To boost storage, look for a kit that transforms the false drawer fronts on the front of the sink cabinet into tilt-out bins for stowing kitchen sponges and scrubbers.

Don’t let kitchen rags and dishwashing gloves clutter the sink area. Instead, hang them from hooks screwed to the inside of a cabinet door, where the items can stay out of sight as they dry. A grommet-setting kit (below: available at hardware stores) lets you make tear-proof holes in cloth, rubber, and other soft materials. Place a tray just inside the cabinet to corral cleaning supplies and catch water that drips from wet gloves.

Pull everything out of each cabinet and go through it. Discard or donate those things that are not frequently used, duplicate items, broken items or things you forgot you had. Do this with each cabinet and drawer, setting up separate areas on the floor for each group. Be ruthless. Most kitchens are short on storage space, so the goal is to only have things you love and use.
