Whether you live in a shoebox-sized, urban apartment or just a house with a galley kitchen, space for kitchen non-essentials can be, well, non-existent. Even the savviest organizing mind can run into problems when it comes to decluttering the kitchen. All those fun, kitchen gadgets and pantry extras may not find a home in cramped cabinets or overstuffed drawers. Luckily, we’ve got kitchen organization ideas to help you wrangle in unruly utensils and containers and turn your kitchen into a stress-free oasis.
Step 1: How to Organize Kitchen Drawers
It’s a familiar scenario. You’re rooting around in kitchen drawers looking for that evasive potato peeler or corkscrew, without any luck. But you have succeeded in singlehandedly wrecking any semblance of order in the drawers you’ve investigated. It’s easy to grow frustrated when you’re trying to push and shove drawers filled with too many utensils closed. One simple organization tool, however, can solve any drawer space problem: the Customizable Silicone Kitchen Drawer Organizer. Instead of squeezing too many clunky utensils into a confined space or hard, pre-made drawer organizer, this utensil organizer comes equipped with a customizable, cut-to-fit silicone mat with stick-on dividers. Easily cut, fit and space an entire drawer’s contents with this stable, unique drawer divider. The splash of color also adds a subtle, yet vibrant touch to monochrome kitchens.
Step 2: How to Organize Kitchen Cabinets
If you’re wondering how to organize kitchen cabinets, a good place to start is with tracking down and stacking any miscellaneous containers, particularly those small spice bottles. The secret of many a delicious dish is its balance of spices and herbs, but keeping all of those round or square bottles and containers organized can be no simple task. In fact, as the years pass, many cooks—particularly those amongst us who like to experiment with new dishes and foreign cuisines—find their cabinets being consumed by a multitude of these awkwardly sized containers. The Classic SpiceStack 24 to 48 Bottle Spice Organizer with Labels is a straightforward solution that keeps all of those spice containers labeled, stacked and stored neatly in a compact space, so that you’re not dedicating shelves and shelves of cabinet space to the smallest containers in your kitchen. Store up to 48 half-sized or 24 full-sized spice bottles on one kitchen cabinet shelf to save precious space and keep spices orderly for quick and easy flavor addition.
