Organising Kitchen Cabinets

Organising kitchen cabinets can make your cooking and meal preparation more efficient and enjoyable. Here are some steps and tips to help you organise your kitchen cabinets effectively:

Empty the Cabinets and Declutter

Start by removing everything from your kitchen cabinets as this gives you a blank slate to work with. Go through the items you’ve removed and declutter, and get rid of items you no longer use or need. Consider donating or discarding items that are damaged or expired.


Organise kitchen cabinets by grouping similar items together. Common categories include cookware, bakeware, small appliances, dishes, glassware, food storage containers, and pantry items. Creating categories will help you decide where to place each group in your cabinets.

Assess Cabinet Space

Take a look at your cabinet space and decide which items should go where based on their size and frequency of use. Items you use most often should be easily accessible, while those used less frequently can be stored in less accessible areas. Invest in cabinet organisers like pull-out shelves, drawer dividers and spice racks. These can maximize space and make it easier to access items at the back of the cabinets.

Use Shelf Liners

Consider using shelf liners to protect your cabinets from spills and to make cleaning easier, they also provide a non-slip surface for items.

Adjust Shelf Heights

If your kitchen cabinets have adjustable shelves, customize the heights to accommodate your items. Additionally, you could try placing taller items on lower shelves and shorter items on higher ones.

Utilize Door Space

The inside of cabinet doors can be used for storage too. Also you can attach hooks or adhesive organizers to store pot lids, cutting boards, or cleaning supplies.

Store Utensils Smartly

Use drawer dividers or utensil trays to keep utensils organized in drawers. Alternatively, you can hang utensils on a wall-mounted rack or a magnetic strip for easy access.

Maintain Regularly

Make it a habit to review and reorganize your kitchen cabinets regularly as this will help you keep things tidy and ensure that you’re using your space efficiently. Remember that the key to successful cabinet organisation is to create a system that works for your specific needs and habits. Regularly maintaining your organised cabinets will help keep your kitchen clutter-free and functional.
