The Best Kitchen Cupboard Organization Ideas

There’s nothing like doing some organizational work at home during the first few months of the new year. Starting fresh and having everything nicely tidied up is of utmost importance if you want to begin the year positively and on the right track to have a productive one ahead. 

The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in a house, which is why it’s vital that it is kept uncluttered and organised as much as possible to ensure optimal performance. It’s not uncommon to have your kitchen cupboards overflowing and lids and pans flying out as you open their doors, because as you cook not everyone can maintain their organisation. But don’t worry, tidying up your cupboards doesn’t have to be a boring chore, on the contrary, many people find it rather satisfying and it can be a lot of fun. You could use this time to not only organise your kitchen but also improvise and use your imagination to create practical, yet stylish designs to make your everyday life easier. 

Here at House Sales Direct, we have gathered some of the best and most functional organisation ideas for your kitchen cupboards so that you can use your kitchen with ease and pleasure every time. 

  1. Use Label Maker

Many people will agree that an organised kitchen does involve having a specific place for everything and ensuring that all things are rightfully labeled is part of that. For this purpose, you should get yourself a label maker that will help you put an order to all things hidden in the cupboards. One of the most disorganized places in a kitchen is for sure the spice drawer. Whether you have your own jars that you refill or you buy new ones every time you run out, you could create a system that keeps them organised and clean despite being constantly used. The label maker will come in handy here as you can clearly outline what is what and you don’t have to turn the drawer upside down to find a specific spice. 

  1. Organize By Activities

Wouldn’t it be nice if you have your coffee mugs just above your coffee machine? Or your spices right next to your oven tops? You’d be surprised at how many people don’t actually organsie their space in a way to reach things they need easily. Having everything in a place that is within an arm’s reach will help decrease the traffic in the kitchen and if there are multiple people making food, you wouldn’t bump into each other all the time and be in each other’s way. You could think of it as splitting the kitchen into zones – one for your morning routines, one for dinner prep and another for cleaning up. 

  1. Use Wooden Pegs

One thing people find rather annoying is having all your dinnerware moving around in the drawers and never being able to perfectly fit things in. The solution to your problem could be wooden pegs. These movable pegs are designed to accommodate all kinds and sizes of dishes and plates, allowing you to customize the layout the best you can based on the dinnerware you have. Wooden pegs will not only ensure everything is kept in order, but they will also prevent anything from damaging or completely breaking. 

  1. Install Pull-Out Cabinets

One of the best ways to ensure easy access is by installing pull-out cabinets. When cooking, people tend to throw things in cabinets loosely which ends up adding to the mess, but with pull-outs you can’t really do that. There is a specific place for everything, and it normally fits perfectly. If you could, you should organize these by item type so if you use it for spices, do spices only. Alternatively, you could store your olive oil and liquids that are used daily as well. 

  1. Use Storage Baskets/Bins

There are always a few annoying items in a kitchen that just don’t fit anywhere. These loose items are better stored in one space with other similar ones rather than just loosely thrown in a drawer. For this reason, you should have a few storage solutions which you could use for those odd items that just don’t fit. A storage box, bin or basket could do the job as long as you have it in the right size. We would suggest getting a few different sizes because you never know which one you will end up needing more. 

  1. Spin The Spices

This trick has become rather viral around cooking gurus, and it seems to stick – the spinning spices. Labeling your spices may not always be the only solution to your problem and if you are one of those people who can never find the spice they are looking for, then this trick is especially for you. You could either design a turnable plate or purchase an already designed one so that you could find anything with ease with a simple spin of your spice jars.
