Kitchen Cabinet Organization Ideas

Written by: Erica Spangler

One of the most organized places in my house are my kitchen cabinets. When I moved into my home, I assessed the space that I had, the kitchen items I owned and noted where each of the work spaces were in my kitchen – the sink and dishwasher, the range and the refrigerator. I determined where my items would go accordingly. I hope these tips and organizers I chose will help you to organize your kitchen cabinets.

Kitchen Cabinet Organization Tips

These six kitchen cabinet organization ideas will help you to make a fresh start of turning the clutter into a kitchen that utilizes every space and is very accessible. Share your ideas in the comments below.

Tip 1: Make a General List

Put together a list of the major items in your kitchen cabinets that you need organized. Begin to plan out what items you may need to organize and what organizers are out there.

Tip 2: Adopt the Pull Out Shelf

This is seriously something I cannot live without. I only have a pull out shelf for my pots and pans, but it makes organizing them and accessing them so much easier.

Tip 3: Collect All of Your Lighter Items

Determine which are your lightest items that you could organize on a cabinet door rack. Items like spices, plastic wrap, plastic bags, etc. can be organized perfectly on your doors.

Tip 4: Collect All of Your Heavier Items

Make sure to find space in your base cabinets for the heaviest items. This will make it easier to pick up heavier items and eliminate strain on your cabinetry.

Tip 5: Utilize Every Nook and Cranny

Don't waste cabinet space. Blind corner organizers and tip out trays are just two of the best ways to optimize awkward spaces. The blind corner organizer makes even the hardest place accessible and the tip out tray utilizes the smallest space – the sink area.

Tip 6: Smarter, Not Lazy

Embrace the lazy, susan that is, by adding them to corner spaces or harder spaces to reach all of your items. With a quick spin, all items are easily available up front.
