Few things are more frustrating than a cluttered, disorganised kitchen. When finding anything becomes a daunting chore and opening cabinets creates an avalanche of pots and pans, it's time to take action. Installing drawer and shelf organisers in your kitchen is a quick, inexpensive way to reclaim your kitchen space.

Organising the Kitchen

The kitchen is a particularly troublesome space for many people because there are so many elements in a relatively small area. Kitchens are a treasure trove of goods and gadgets, but few kitchens are equipped for use without a little extra planning. Cabinets, drawers, and counter tops are bare spaces where clutter can accumulate, so adding drawer and shelf organisers is key to keeping things neat and tidy.

Shelf Organizers

Kitchen shelf organisers are an easy and inexpensive way to control your kitchen clutter. Shelf organisers often install with no tools and are an ideal storage solution for spaces with limited cabinet space. Kitchen shelf organisers include adjustable door racks, which hang on pantry or cabinet doors, wire or plastic roll-out can racks, pull-out cabinet doors, corner racks, and stacking shelves. Look for these storage solutions at your local retailers or at online kitchen supply stores.

Drawer Organizers

Everyone has a junk drawer in their kitchen, but over time, it becomes difficult to differentiate the junk drawer from any other. Silverware and utensils are a primary source of clutter, and kitchen knives make organisation inside drawers a must. Installing drawer organisers allows for the best use of drawer space and keeps drawers both safe and looking great. Drawer organisers include flatware organisers, drawer cubes and dividers, knife sleeves, and drop-in drawer pegs.

Unconventional Solutions

While racks and flatware organisers provide adequate organisation for most shelves and drawers, there are some spaces in the kitchen that require unconventional solutions. Consider hanging pot racks, a Lazy Susan, or corner carousel inside the cabinet for pots and pans, glassware, and spices. Use screw-in cup hooks or adhesive hooks on the underside of shelves to hang mugs. Invest in stack-and-store systems, a tea carousel, or a rollout caddie for your refrigerator shelves.

Outside the Cabinets

Organization is just as important outside the cabinets and drawers. There are many shelf spaces in the kitchen not hidden behind cabinet doors, so consider these spaces carefully and plan to use them to their best advantage. Invest in organizational systems such as wine racks, over-the-stove racks, behind-the-sink shelves, countertop can dispensers, mug racks, fruit stands, food storage containers for cereal, chips, and pastas, and canisters.
