1. Separation

Grouping like items and distinctly separating from other items is what the organization is all about. When we talk about separation, we mean get some dividers, shelving, books, or anything else you can use to visually show separation between different items in your kitchen storage cabinets. If everything is thrown in your cabinets willy nilly, you’ll spend more time looking through the hodgepodge of kitchen items than you will actually using what you’re looking for. Proper separation can help you identify what you are looking for immediately for a more practical and efficient kitchen.

2. Display Prettier Items

It may sound obvious, but one easy way to save space in your kitchen storage cabinets is to take some things out of them. But don’t just randomly pull things out of your cabinets — especially if you will need them soon. If you have decorative dishware, utensils, small appliances, or anything else that is visually appealing, flaunt them! This will add an interesting visual element to your kitchen and will leave you with more space for less attractive kitchen items in your kitchen storage cabinets.

3. Labels

Tip number three is to use labels. This may sound somewhat nerdy or unnecessary, but trust us, you won’t regret it for a second. Once you decide the optimal location for all the items in your kitchen, you can keep things organized and pretty with organization labels. These labels don’t have to be hyper-specific, they can be as simple as “bowls, spices, canned goods,” etc. A few minutes with a label maker can make a world of difference for the organization of your kitchen storage cabinets.

4. Containers

Another great organization tip for your kitchen is to utilize containers. Spice racks, baskets, jars, decorative bucks, or any other container you love can do wonders for the organization of your kitchen storage cabinets. You can save space in your cabinets by storing sugar, salt, coffee, or other powders in decorative jars on the counter. Or, you can install a folding spice rack in your cabinet to help contain, organize, and grant easy access to all your cooking spices. Containers open up a whole new world of possibilities.

5. Declutter

At Creekside Cabinets in New Bern, we believe that one of the best ways to organize your kitchen is to declutter occasionally. No one knows exactly how it happens, but everyone seems to slowly accumulate more and more kitchen items, dishes, and utensils. Naturally, as you upgrade your kitchen wares, some older items will be used far less. If you have items in your kitchen storage cabinets that haven’t been touched, used, or thought about for quite some time, consider donating them, selling them, or throwing them away if they’ve reached the end of their life. This will leave you more room in your cabinets for thoughtful and practical storage of the items you do use.
