The kitchen is the heart of the home, but often it can be crowded and unorganized. Need more space in your kitchen? These tips will help you take advantage of every nook and cranny to help you instantly organize and cut the clutter in the hardest working room in your house.

  • Cookware Organization – Most kitchen base cabinets lack vertical storage space for big, flat cookware like cookie sheets and pizza pans. To provide it, just remove the lower shelf, cut a vertical panel of plywood and fasten it at the cabinet bottom with furniture braces and at the top with a strip of wood. Drill holes for the adjusting pins to match the original locations and trim the shelf to length.
  • Plastic Bag Organization – What do you do with all your plastic bags when you get home from shopping? Most storage methods for plastic bags can take a lot of space, but an empty rectangular tissue box makes a convenient holder for small garbage bags. Simply thumbtack it to the inside of a cabinet door.
  • Measuring Cup Organization – Instead of using your limited drawer space to store measuring cups, try hanging them inside a kitchen cabinet. Position and mount a wood strip so that the cups will hang between the shelves and allow the door to close completely. Mount a second strip for your measuring spoons and then screw in cup hooks on both strips.
  • Drawer Organization – Depending on what you store in your drawers, you may or may not need to purchase drawer organizers. There are many kinds to choose from at stores like Bed Bath and Beyond and The Container Store. If you’d like your drawer space to perfectly fit every little item, you may want to consider custom-made drawer organizers. In our San Jose home remodel project we incorporated the custom drawer organizers (pictured above) into the home design.
