The best ways to organize your kitchen cabinets

When it comes to organization, finding a system that works for your specific situation can seem overwhelming at first. The feeling of “so much to do, so little time” can often wonder into our minds and leave us feeling less than inspired to take on the task of organizing our space. If you’ve ever looked at your kitchen and had these feelings come up, have no fear, and take a deep breath! We’ve got the perfect tips to get your kitchen up to speed with organization.

1.      Add containers and baskets to optimize organization and space

2.      Keep everything in its own marked spaces

3.      Use hooks to take advantage of open-door space

4.      Utilize empty spice in higher areas

5.      Add a Lazy Susan to help make things more accessible

6.      Install a tension rod for pots and pans

Baskets, containers, and dividers, oh my!

If lack of kitchen cabinet space is the root of your stress, the perfect solution is to incorporate a system that essentially makes more space within your space. It’s much easier than it sounds, and by adding baskets, containers, and dividers into your pantry and kitchen cabinets you’ll be an organization pro in no time! Particularly in the pantry area, you can store dry goods in labeled containers. This will minimize the bulkiness of the boxes and keep things

With baskets, you can store more food, snacks, or condiments and supplies. Dividers will come in handy for any kitchen cabinet drawers that are overflowing with baking tins, as you’ll be able to store them right side up. This will not only free up space but keep everything organized and in its place. So even with these simple additions, you can easily divide and conquer the mess within.

A home for everything

One of the best methods to adopt into your new organization mindset is that every object, big or small, should have a home of its own. This means that everything has a place it should always be in. That way, when something is out of place, it’s that much easier to find it and return it to where it belongs.

Take for example your Tupperware. Even just that word alone probably sends shivers you’re your back, as it doesn’t hold the best reputation for being simple to organize. In order to combat that mountain of Tupperware containers that always seems to avalanche down, firstly, separate your Tupperware containers and their lids. Next, find a small container to keep the lids in, while stacking them from largest to smallest. No more avalanche, and no more stress!

Hook it up

By utilizing the inside of your kitchen cabinet doors, you’ve basically just waved a magical organization wand and created that much more space! This also works with pantry doors.

Any items that can be hung up (like certain cooking utensils, pots and pans, or even their lids), will help de-clutter your cabinet spaces in no time.

Level Up

As far as the inside of your cabinets go, a similar method can be applied in terms of taking advantage of any available height. When you put away a bowl or mug in a cabinet, more often than not, there’s a huge gap between the height of your dishes, and the rest of your cabinets.

All that precious space is wasted unless you utilize it by leveling up with risers. Risers are the perfect solution for this, because they create a mini shelf within your cabinet. This allows you to safely stack your dishes, while using up that space in the best way.

Laziness for the win

At times laziness can actually be the best thing ever, especially with organizing. Installing a Lazy Susan into your cabinet space eliminates the constant struggle of not being able to reach the items you need. No longer will your cabinet space become a black hole of dishes!

Ease the tension

Lastly, but certainly not least, bring in some much-needed tension to your organization journey.  Installing a tension rod into those deeper drawers and cabinets will work wonders, by separating the lids of pots and pans all inside one drawer. Now you won’t have to worry about dedicating another area to store just the lids, and they won’t be flying all over the place upon opening and closing the drawer. Best of all, the tension will be off of you and where it belongs.


We hope you feel confident and ready to take your kitchen cabinet organization to the next level with these tips. Cabinet organization doesn’t have to be so daunting and incorporating any of these tips will only set you and your kitchen up for an organizational success.
