Organizing your kitchen cabinets is the most important thing you can do to keep your kitchen organized. These ideas will surely help you and organizing it and keeping it organized!
You know it’s time to reorganize your kitchen cabinet if you always run into a tumbling mess every time you need to access and retrieve kitchenware and ingredients. The way you choose to arrange your kitchen cabinets should be decided by how you use the kitchen on a regular basis. The following tips will ensure your kitchen is organized in a beautiful and functional way.
Make use of the vertical wall space in your kitchen by installing open shelves that go all the way up to the ceiling. Shelves like these allow you to showcase the best-looking kitchenware while making them easy to store and find when needed. In case replacing your current kitchen cabinets is too much of a hassle, just remove the doors and paint the interior of the cabinet to match or complement the color of your kitchenware.
Don’t leave the sink cabinet unused
It can be quite challenging to use the space under the kitchen sink because of the pullout hoses, protruding sink bottom, and obstructive plumbing pipes. You can, however, look for wire shelving and acrylic stacking trays of the appropriate sizes to maximize use of the space beneath the sink. Items at the back of wire bins can be easily taken out by sliding out the bins.
For additional storage, set up hooks, shelves, and bins inside the doors of the sink cabinet. Also think about adding specialty storage, such as a grocery bag holder. Increase the amount of storage by using a kit that converts the front of the sink into a tilt-out bin for keeping your scrubbers and sponges.
Pots and pans can be safely stowed in a deep drawer close the top of your stove. Moreover, installing dish divider dowels can allow you to use drawers to store saucers, bowls, plates, etc. in neatly arranged stacks. It is important to ensure that sliding hardware of good quality is set up in your drawers to hold the weight of the drawer’s contents when it is fully extended.
Stacks and tiers
Are you met with a landslide of falling food containers whenever you open the doors of your kitchen cabinets? Avoid this by nesting your plastic containers and lids into each other and keeping them in larger trays that together fit snugly in the cabinet. You can also corral the lids in other containers.
Once this is done, you may find that the single shelf provided in typical kitchen cabinets is not enough. In this case, add tiers in which you can fit you’re the stacked containers and lids, as well as other items such as skillets, pots, and pans. Store all the pot lids together and nest the posts inside each other to maximize space.
Slide and spin
Make use of narrow spaces to store spices and other flavoring ingredients by making use of slim pullout racks. If space allows, set up a turntable on one of the shelves in the cabinet for items such as vinegar or oil bottles and spin them into view. Decant other spices and foods into labeled or clear containers to easy stacking and inventory.
