Keeping a tidy kitchen can not only make cooking meals at home just a little bit easier, but also a lot more pleasant. Get your kitchen organized, with plenty of good storage space, you might find yourself spending less money on eating out. Here are six kitchen storage ideas that will cut the clutter and create a well-organized kitchen where cooking is a pleasure.
Keeping pots, pans and lids together is one of the biggest obstacles to organizing your kitchen. Our solution is the two-tiered Rev-A-Shelf X-Large Cookware Organizer. It helps you store pots and pans while maximizing the most out of your cabinet space. Say goodbye to reorganizing pots, pans or lids every time you take one off the shelf.
Countertop space is essential to a functional, organized kitchen, and nothing eats up space like small appliances– especially the larger, heavier machines such as Kitchen Aid Mixers or juicers. We say keep them in a cabinet, and let the Rev-A-Shelf Heavy Duty Lift System do the heavy lifting for you. When you’re done, just let the Rev-A-Shelf lower it back into the cabinet, out of sight.
Although herbs and spices are small, they consume a lot of space inside cabinets. Improve your cooking efficiency with this ClosetMaid 3-Shelf Spice Rack. Home Depot customer Lexikon from Kentucky says, “I installed three of these spice racks on the inside of the pantry door in our kitchen. Now I’m a hero with my wife. She loves recovering the cabinet space that all the spices formerly took up in her kitchen.” Proof that it’s the easiest way to keep spices organized, stored and close at hand!
Save time searching for scissors or stamps by giving your junk drawer a makeover. If you’re not sure where to begin (a.k.a. having a really messy junk drawer), start by emptying everything out. Once you’ve sorted things you want to keep and things you want to discard, repurpose household items like small food jars or egg cartons as storage for small items. Then divide and conquer by using a tableware drawer organizer to hold anything from batteries to lint rollers.
Finding enough cabinet space in your kitchen can be a never-ending battle. While it’s hard to make new cabinet space magically appear, installing shelves isn’t as difficult. Consider adding floating shelves to your kitchen walls for a stylish way to store everyday items like mixing bowls or drinkware. This is also a great project for a chef who loves having cookbooks close at hand.
Noisy baking sheets is a familiar noise in most kitchens. Keep your cookie sheets, drying racks and pizza pans in upright storage with a cabinet tray divider that rolls out. Install a second tray divider specifically for cutting boards, cheese trays or pizza peels.
