If a genie appeared and offered to organize any room in your home, we have a sneaking suspicion the kitchen may be your first choice. Unfortunately we don’t have a genie on hand, however here are nine ideas paired with DIYs that will give you the most organized (and functional) kitchen you could possibly wish for.
Keep pantry staples close to your workspace by storing them in pretty glass containers on your countertop. Make sure the containers are airtight when closed to preserve freshness.
This DIY is a small kitchen’s best friend, providing tons of extra storage space for hand towels, knife sets, larger utensils, and even decor. Add some painted color, and attach hooks, bars, and organizers as you go.
Don’t let utensil inserts cramp your space or your style—build your own custom drawer inserts with wooden planks, to perfectly fit the space you have and create the organization you need.
Solve deep pantry problems, by adding Lazy Susans to your cabinets and closets.
Bring order to your coffee filters, K-Cups, and tea bags by adding drawer organizers. Create space for everything, with the perfect compartments to fit each item.
A well-placed tension rod will create a perfect location for hand towels, oven mitts, sponge holders, and so much more.
Free up much needed drawer space, by adding vertical storage to a cabinet or pantry door for your various foil, plastic wrap, and wax paper dispensers.
How do you keep all your spices visible, without leaving them on the counter? Magnets! Make sure your containers are well labelled, and simply attach magnets.
Turn the inside of a cabinet door into a clear and foolproof measuring spoon storage system.
