How to Organize Kitchen Cabinets and Drawers


Having strategically organized cabinets and drawers in your kitchen can make your daily routine so much easier.

The first step in organizing your kitchen cabinets and drawers is to empty everything out. You need a clean slate to figure out how much storage space you have to work with.

Where To Start

Once I started intentionally using organizers in my cabinets and drawers, keeping my kitchen clean and organized became a much easier task. I know the same will be true for you!.

Decide What Organizers Will Help

If you store them in a cabinet, stacking them is fine. If you have drawers, like I do in my new kitchen, then a peg organizer stops them moving around and gives them a designated spot.

For flatware, we use this maple organizer for our shallow top drawers in our island. If your drawers are deeper, you can also get a two-tier cutlery organizer that allows for separate compartments, top and bottom, in one single drawer.

Flatware and Cutlery

I used a wooden spice drawer insert to create the base for the spice rack, then emptied out all my spice containers into these bamboo spice jars with custom spice labels.

A pull-out trash organizer makes good use of deep lower cabinet space, and ensures that your trash cans have a home that’s not right out in the open!
