How to Organize Your Cabinets to Maximize Storage Space

Organizing your kitchen cabinetry may feel like a never-ending task.  There are thousands upon thousands of Pinterest posts dedicated to how to maximize your cabinet storage space with all kinds of ‘hacks’ and ‘tricks’ to get the most of your kitchen cabinets.  But, the truth is, there are a few simple ways to organize your kitchen cabinets that will help you maximize your storage space.

Contain It!

One of the first ways to maximize storage space is to embrace containers.  Containers such as canisters and baskets can help you organize your cabinets quickly and easily.  And, it is easy for everyone in the family to know where things go so things get put back where they belong.  The key is to organize items by kind or use and then label the canisters or baskets.

Keep it Level!

The next tip is one that seems so simple but is often overlooked – put everyday items at eye level.  You do not need to store the cereal your kids eat every day on the top shelf.  Are you constantly using olive oil when you cook?  Why is it on the bottom shelf?  Keep the things you use every day at eye level where they are easy to find and easy to put back.

Customize It!

The next thing you can do is customize your cabinets when they are being installed with organization tools that will make your life much easier and more organized.  This is one of the significant advantages of custom cabinetry – choosing whatever organizational features you want and placing them exactly where you need them!  Do you have a large family with lots of utensils?  You may need a lot of utensil organization.  Are you a foodie that loves to cook, you may need special organization shelves, racks and other items to organize all of your pots, pans, lids and spices. Custom kitchen cabinetry organization can maximize your storage space by using every last inch of space in your kitchen thoughtfully and efficiently.
