A lot of people organize their kitchen and other spaces after the holidays are over, but I tend to prefer to organize things before the holidays. That way I feel less stressed. I’m currently in the process of purging and donating things I really don’t need. Once that’s done, I’ll reorganize shelves and cupboards. Here are some great (and attractive) ideas to organize the kitchen.
The beautiful blue cupboard above isn’t just pretty, it’s highly functional too! I have a built-in cupboard in my kitchen, but it isn’t organized as neatly as this one. I like the pull-out baskets in this cabinet and could easily incorporate that concept into my cabinet.
Are there really people out there whose pantry looks as neat and tidy as this one? I need to get clear containers like this to hold dry goods. It makes it so much easier to see what you’ve got on hand, as opposed to rooting through boxes that are piled on top of each other.
Coated wire racks and and baskets are the perfect way to keep things corralled in a pantry.
Love the can holders on the top shelf! Labels on baskets make it easy to remember what’s inside each one.
Who wants a ladder for their kitchen? I do!! When you’re short like me it sure comes in handy. Notice the basket drawers under the large butcher block island. Yet another handy way to store things like oft-used utensils.
What a classy pantry! The wood interior is beautiful and the exterior has an English vibe.
Why do I not think of drawers when I think of ways to organize the kitchen? No, instead I have to fumble around and rummage through the pile of utensils in the drawer. And then when I spy the one I want, it grabs onto the tongs which take hold of the can opener, and the next thing I know I’ve got utensils spilling out of the drawer onto the floor. Drawer dividers are definitely on my to-do list for the kitchen!
Love this cottage kitchen with its white cabinets, wood floors, and wood counter tops. But I also love the plate rack at the end of the counter. This is a perfect solution for storing frequently used plates. Instead of digging in the cabinet, just grab them off the rack. I mean, why put your prettiest plates behind doors where no one can enjoy them? Here, they’re on display!
If I decide to store items in clear canisters, I’m going to add labels similar to these. Especially for the dried beans. I won’t remember which ones are navy or pinto. These would be pretty out on open shelves, too.
Hopefully you found some kitchen organizing ideas for your own home. Of course, these can be used in any room of the house.
