A place for everything…and everything has a space. That’s my motto when trying to figure out the most convenient spot for all my kitchen “stuff”. Here are 3 things I need when organizing my kitchen.
1) I need to see my trays and cookie sheets.
If you have a lot of sheets, cutting boards, trays, platters etc., purchase some wood or wire vertical dividers in a base cabinet or above an oven or refrigerator deep wall cabinet.
2) I need to see my utensils.
Since drawer dividers are not too pricey, plan to put (1) in a 12-18 inch wide drawer, (2 or more) in a 24 to 36 inch wide drawer to make the spaces you need. You can also use these wood dividers for knife storage, as long as a protector mat of some kind is lining the bottom of the drawer for protection.
3) I need pots and pans easy to reach. Some people like the roll-out shelves in the deep base cabinet, and some like big pot drawers. The choice is yours because either option works. Make sure you get the full extension glides on the roll-outs and the actual wooden dowels on the pot drawers.
Check out these companies for fabulous storage cabinet options. Stay organized! It’s one of those small “peace of mind” pleasures of life…to be able to say, “I know where that is!!”
