Everyone can use some organization tips. With the kids and grandkids being home more often in the advent of summer, it’s the perfect time to upgrade your storage accessories. More people coming and going through the kitchen equals more clutter. I came across this helpful guide from architecturaldigest.com.
The Best Kitchen Cabinet Organizers, According to 6 Experts
Give your kitchen the attention it deserves
By Jordan Goldberg – architecturaldigest.com, January 4, 2022
If you spend the majority of your time in the kitchen these days, you likely know that, with the wide array of items stored in the space, kitchen cabinet organizers are absolutely required to fight off the chaos and clutter. Because the space houses everything from snacks to pots and pans to all of your spices, it can be challenging to find a neat and efficient way to organize all the necessary culinary items and keep the space visually appealing while doing it. It’s time to stop the kitchen clutter madness once and for all. Below, discover nine easy-to-implement kitchen storage solutions that professional home organization experts recommend for keeping your kitchen tidy.
1. Use a lazy Susan to Store Cleaning Products: Whether storing cleaning products under your sink or in a cabinet, Michaela Katz, cofounder of Twice as Organized, recommends organizing cleaning supplies on a lazy Susan. Their rotating function allows for easy visibility and quick access to all your essential supplies.

2. Utilize Wall Space for Storing Pots and Pans: As much as we love beautiful cookware, pots and pans tend to be bulky and not very easily stackable. Instead of trying to shove them into any nook or cranny you can find, Jessica Litman, founder of The Organized Mama, recommends hanging your pots and pans on a heavy duty rack to make use of limited space and optimize for accessibility.
3. Drawer Organizers, Drawer Organizers, Drawer Organizers: “Drawers are always better with drawer organizers,” explains Lahni Carney, professional organizer and owner of Clutterless Home Solutions. They’re great because they can visually organize a wide variety of kitchen items, such as cutlery and spatulas, and keep the clutter off your countertops. Don’t go for the customizable, tension-rod organizers, she advises, as they can damage your drawers. Stick with single organizer inserts or those with built-in dividers.
4. Store Snacks in Bins: It’s important to implement a pantry organization system that is clear to everyone in your household. Meg DeLong, co-owner of The Tidy Home Nashville, recommends large bins to neatly store your grab-and-go items. Organize by category, she advises, and use labels on each basket to make it clear what’s inside.
5. Take Advantage of Every Inch in your Cabinets: If you’re running low on cabinet space, Corinne Morahan, CEO of Grid + Glam, recommends shelf risers to double the amount of storage space in your cabinets. Make sure to measure the space first to make sure that the risers will fit neatly inside.
6. Get Rid of Bulky Packaging: If you can’t stand the sight of bulky boxes in your pantry, Corinne suggests dumping your cereals, baking supplies, pasta, and more into storage containers. These kitchen cabinet organizers will give your pantry shelves a sleek look, help extend the shelf life of your dry goods, and keep unattractive boxes out of your pantry for good. Bonus points if they’re pretty and plastic free.
7. Store Your Trash Can Discreetly: A trash can is never a pretty sight, especially if it’s overflowing with garbage. Michele Vig, founder and chief organizer at Neat Little Nest, advises installing a pull-out trash can underneath your sink if you have the space. If you don’t have the room, opt for a hanging trash can that can be installed on the back of any cabinet door.
8. Don’t Let Water Bottles Overtake Your Space: Guilty of keeping every water bottle you’ve ever received? No worries—Corinne recommends water bottle organizers to contain all of your water bottles in an orderly fashion. They can fit in your cabinets or in your fridge and make it easier to find the water bottle you’re looking for when on the run!
9. Take Time Organizing Your Spices: Organizing your spices properly once will save you lots of time searching in the future, making every cent you spend on kitchen cabinet organizers worthwhile. Consider space and accessibility when picking the right method to store your spices. Lahni recommends utilizing the refrigerator door or designating a drawer near the stove for easy access while cooking. Putting spices into glass jars can also add a uniform look to the space.
