How To Organize Kitchen Cabinets With 8 Simple Ideas

Is your kitchen in a state of disarray with pots, pans, and utensils crammed into every available space? Organizing the kitchen can be a bit of a bear. There are usually lots and lots of items we want to store and not much room to do it. Or even if we have the space, it quickly gets unruly and feels like a cluttered mess.

Since we need to eat, we often spend a decent amount of time in our kitchens, and that time feels much more pleasant when everything is tidy and organized. Here are some kitchen organization ideas that will be helpful for organizing your kitchen space!

An Organized Kitchen

Prep work: Before you organize, you must purge!
The first step in organizing your kitchen cabinets is to empty them completely. Take everything out and lay it on your kitchen counters or dining table. This will give you a clear view of what you have and allow you to start with a clean slate.

Now that you have everything out, it's time to declutter. Ask yourself if you really use each item, you can classify the items as “trash,” “donate,” “sell,” or "keep." The goal is to keep only what you truly need and use regularly.

Group Similar Items:
Sort your kitchen items into categories. For example, group all your baking supplies together, your pots and pans in one pile, and your utensils in another. This will help you see how much space you need for each category and make it easier to find items when you're cooking.

Arrange Items Strategically:
When putting items back into your cabinets, think strategically. Store frequently used items at eye level or in easily accessible drawers. Place heavier items like pots and pans in lower cabinets to prevent strain on your back. Reserve the highest shelves for items you use infrequently or for seasonal items. Our roll out tray will leave you more space in your cabinets for more efficient storage.

Add floating shelves for extra storage:

If you’re worried about items on the shelves looking messy, consider corralling them in a cute basket. They’ll still be right at your fingertips while still looking tidy.
