When you look for something in one of your kitchen cabinets, do you have to move everything around to get what you are searching for? If that is the case, or if you just need to make more storage space available, you need to put some kitchen cabinet organizers to good use.
Here are some examples of what to consider:
For Your Cupboard Under the Sink
So, let’s start with your under the sink cabinet. Get yourself some two or three-tier lengthwise shelves placed in a stepwise fashion with the taller items on the top shelf and working down to the bottom shelf. These shelves normally fit quite well under the standardized sink space and require no installation, just placement. Use of these shelves allows you to see your cleaning products, etc quite clearly without having to hunt for them.
Another option for this area is a two-tier rack that can be placed on the inside of your cabinet door. A few simple screws and you have opened up your under kitchen cabinet space, even more, transferring your dishwashing liquids and so forth on the lower tier and maybe sponges on the upper, smaller rack.
Kitchen Cabinet Organizers for your Pantry.
Again there are several options available to you. First, placing wire rack shelves is simple and all you need is an electric screwdriver or small drill. The racks come with a track wherein the shelf can be rolled out for a better view of its contents. However, these would take up the width of your cabinet.
You should place similar items on the same rack for easier access. Another possibility is the stationary smaller shelves which are commonly seen in closets or garages. These can be installed in a staggered fashion, again with no need for a professional installation.
Also, various sizes of roll-out shelf or rotating shelves are available to suit most kitchen cabinets. These may be free-standing or require simple screw fixing.
How About a Hanging Utensil Rack?
I think this is a great way to keep all your utensils handy while giving your kitchen a new look. These are available in smaller sizes suitable for fitting under your wall cupboards, or larger, for fitting higher, such as above your food preparation worktop.
To fit a simple under the cabinet space type rack, you just need a small drill to go through the cabinet above it.
For a larger kitchen a larger rounded type of rack would be necessary and depending on your DIY skills and confidence may require fitting by someone qualified to ensure your safety. This is the overhead hanging utensil holder, as often seen in restaurant kitchens.
What about Organizers for Drawers?
Various dividers or cutlery holders can be used in your kitchen drawers. These can keep your cutlery or utensils separated into related sets. Dividers of this sort can be purchased at any kitchen supply store and are relatively inexpensive.
So no more excuses – give yourself more space, make it easier to find what you are looking for, and maybe add some style at the same time – with a few kitchen cabinet organizers…
