Best Tips for Organizing Your Kitchen

Learning how to organize kitchen cabinets the right way can be a challenge, to say the least. There are so many different things that need to be organized and stored. It can be difficult knowing where to begin and how to go about getting the job done. I have helped many people learn how to organize their cabinets the right way. Below is some information on how to do it effectively.

Get to know your appliances

The most important thing in learning how to organize kitchen cabinets is to know how all of the appliances in your kitchen work. This will give you a better understanding as to why certain items are kept close to the cooking surface, other items are stored on shelves, and other cooking supplies are stored in storage containers throughout your kitchen. Knowing how everything is used will help you make better choices with how you store certain kitchen items, such as your cookbooks or crockery. By having this knowledge you will be able to maximize the space in your kitchen and make finding specific items much easier.

Use shelves

Shelves are important kitchen storage items for a couple of reasons. First, they allow you to easily find the exact dish that you are looking for by their shape and design rather than sorting through all of the pans and pots on your counter. If you have a stack of dishes you want to find the pot that will fit in it perfectly, without opening all the pots up. Shelves also keep miscellaneous items such as spoons, spatulas, forks, knives, and other utensils out of sight from the rest of the kitchen.

Use cabinet organizer tool

There are several ways that you can organize your kitchen. The first is to use cabinet organizing tools that come in standard sizes and shapes. You can buy these at your local home improvement store, department store, or even get them online. There are several advantages to buying a cabinet organizer to organize your storage space in your kitchen. They usually come with labels, so it is easier to locate the container you need when you are looking for something specific and not wasting time trying to remember what you already have.


Once everything is stored in the proper places in your kitchen, it is time to start with the actual decluttering. Now that everything is in its proper place it is much easier to move around the kitchen and do some work. If you have ever watched the kitchen experts on television who work from a large kitchen that looks like it is teeming with activity, then you know how important this is. You want to make things as easy as possible for yourself and your family to move around. In order to make things as easy as possible you will need to organize your kitchen cabinet space by category.

It takes more than just moving stuff around to organize kitchen cabinets. It also requires you to be prepared to do some serious cleaning every now and then. In order to declutter and organize your cabinets, you will need to clean them at least twice a year. When you are getting ready to clean the mess and get things back into their proper spots, you are going to want to take the time to vacuum and dust the cabinets. This is one of the best ways to make sure that you have the best way possible to organize kitchen cabinets.


Depending on the size of your kitchen you will want to determine the best storage space for each item. A good example is your baking area. If it is very large, you may want to use racks along the wall and inside the oven to store things as you are using them. If you have two ovens and a stove set up in the center of the kitchen, you will probably need to utilize extra storage space for these appliances. The best idea is to make everything easily accessible and to keep it out of view to prevent chaos.
