Top 3 Tips on How to Organize Kitchen Cabinets
Are your kitchen cabinets overflowing with pantry items and miscellaneous accessories? If so, you’re not alone. Many people use their kitchen day after day without taking the time to get organized, leading to frustration rather than genuinely enjoying the heart of the home.
Knowing how to organize kitchen cabinets can make or break your space’s overall functionality and ease of use. Here are the top 3 tips our design experts recommend—so make sure to try these out in your kitchen!
Tip 1: Maximize Your Cabinets’ Capacity
First, paying attention to how well you are using the overall space is essential. Whether you feel limited by your kitchen’s size, the number of cabinets you have, or your cabinets’ dimensions, many design hacks can help you maximize your cabinets’ capacity. Try adjusting the shelf height or add shelf maximizers—these may allow you to add mini shelves that sit on top of larger shelves or stacked items.
Tip 2: Keep Similar Items Together
Keeping similar items together—such as keeping all your cookware in one space, all your foodstuffs in another area, and all your dishes in a separate location—will help you know where to store items without questioning how to organize kitchen cabinets for maximum efficiency. In addition, having a system in place will help you stay cool, calm, and collected in the long run.
Tip 3: Store Heavier Items in Lower Cabinets
Finally, we recommend storing heavier items in lower cabinets and lighter items in higher cabinets. This means keeping heavy pans, mixing bowls, and unwieldy serving dishes on the bottom of cabinet shelves in your kitchen’s lower cabinets. On the other hand, you can store spices and spice racks, everyday dishes, and lighter food items in your kitchen’s higher cabinets. Following this method will keep you and your family safe when opening cabinet doors and minimize the chance of injury when retrieving heavy items.
