10 Kitchen Organization Ideas
We can never have enough storage ideas for our kitchen!
1. Install a Slide-Out Prep Station
Here's a clever solution for a kitchen short on counter space: Build a butcher block board into a drawer with a hole right over the trash can, making it easy to dump peels and pits as you go!
2. Turn One Shelf Into Two
With wire shelf risers, you can multiply vertical storage space, giving you even more room to store all of your dishware. Just because you're short on space doesn't mean you have to compromise your love of mugs, dishes, and cute bowls.
3. Tea Bag Organizer
If you like to mix up your tea flavors throughout the day (good thinking!), then you probably have a drawer full of tea boxes. Reduce clutter and keep your tea collection in tip-top shape with this compact tea organizer.
4. Ditch Countertop Produce Bowls
Pack a deep drawer full of removable bins and use them to sort produce that doesn't need to be refrigerated. You will never lose precious counter space to a fruit or veggie bowl again!
5. Use Forgotten Spaces
The side of your lower cabinets is the perfect spot to hang heavy, clunky items that are annoying to store — like colanders or cutting boards.
6. Use Your Cabinet Doors
Hang your most-frequently-used cooking utensils (like measuring cups and spoons, if you're a baker) on the back of a cabinet door, instead of cramming them into already-full drawers.
7. Hang Out
Your shelves have two surfaces perfect for organizing kitchen clutter. Place tins and bins on top, and hang mason jars filled with nuts, seeds, and spices underneath.
8. Be Narrow-Minded
The skinny space between your fridge and the wall is prime real estate for organizing canned goods.
9. Look Above Your Range
When you store your pots and cooking utensils above your stovetop, everything you need is always at-hand.
10. Magnetic Knife Bar
Although they look professional, knife blocks take up way too much counter space. Instead, store knives and kitchen utensils on a magnetic strip on your wall.
