How to maximise space in your kitchen cupboards

Have you organised your kitchen lately? I often just place things in where they will fit instead of putting them back where they belong. However this often leaves me unsure of where I put something the last time I used it. One easy and satisfying way to fix this is to organise the kitchen cupboards. 
Step 1:  Choose a cupboard to get organised.  Remove everything and scrub the shelves with some soapy water. Allow the surfaces to dry.

Step 2: Closely inspect the contents of your cupboards or pantry. Is there anything you don’t use anymore? Donate it to charity if it’s in good shape or recycle it if it’s not.

Step 3: Arrange everything in a composition that makes you happy. Think about what you reach for the most often and make sure it gets a position that’s easy to reach. Perhaps take a cabinet full of glasses and line them up by colour or style.

Extra ideas:
  • Some wire bin units slide out to make it easy to retrieve items at the back.
  • Add storage bins, shelves, and hooks inside doors for more storage, and consider including some specialty storage such as a holder for plastic grocery bags.
  • A deep drawer is great for pots and pans near the stovetop.  
  • Add a pullout rack inside the door for spices.
  • If you have more space, install a turntable on one shelf so you can spin bottles of oils and vinegars into view.
There you have it, beautifully organised kitchen cupboards. If you enjoyed this post, keep updated via social media:
