The kitchen, for most of us, is a home's gathering place. It can bring to mind the smell of coffee brewing on a cold winter morning, the sensation of spice laden-steam rising from a boiling pot, or the sounds of the daily family hustle and bustle. For many home owners, the kitchen can also be characterized by the horrors of clutter, crowded cabinets, and general disarray. If you've been trying to find ways to reorganize your kitchen without a costly remodel, here are a few quick ideas:

Tip #1: Repack Dry Goods

Most packaged food products can be more space efficient when removed from their original packaging and placed in stackable plastic containers.

Tip #2: Free the Spices

Don't waste cabinet or drawer space on your spice collection! Spices should be handy near the stove, so install a wall rack in a convenient location. Be careful to avoid spots that will get too much heat, as this can affect the flavor of some spices.

Tip #3: Hang ‘em Up

Hanging pot racks can both free up your cabinet space and add a chef's touch to your kitchen! If you decide against a full pot rack, consider ways to hang utensils out in the open. Preassembled racks can be attached to the cabinet undersides to accommodate your stemware as well.

Tip #4: Tailor Your Cabinet Shelves

Measure your stacked dishes to find the exact height needs of your shelving, and use adjustable shelves to avoid wasting space.

Tip #5: Add Simple Storage

Most kitchens have room for small shelves between the counter space and cupboards that can store dry goods or cookbooks. Pull-out hanging rods for dishtowels can be installed in spaces between appliances and cabinetry, and wire racks can be fitted around sink pipes to hold cleaning supplies.


We hope you find these ideas useful for your own kitchen. If you have any questions about your home, or any real estate needs whatsoever, please give us a call. We’d be glad to help in any way possible.
