When you have a small kitchen, it can get cluttered fast. But you don’t have to live with perennially packed cabinets and drawers or messy countertops. There is a simple solution that cuts down on chaos, provides more space, and increases cabinet functionality. Using kitchen cabinet organizers will get your cabinets in shape while making your cozy kitchen feel bigger. Here’s how.

How Cabinet Organizers Optimize Space…So There’s More of It

When you have a smaller kitchen, you have to get creative with storage to keep your cabinets, drawers, and pantry neat and functional. Fortunately, there are an array of kitchen cabinet storage solutions that will increase the amount of space you have and make your kitchen easier and more enjoyable to use. Some of these include:

Drawer Dividers

Drawers can often feel shallow and slim – especially if you already have a tight kitchen. However, by installing drawer inserts and dividers, you can make the most of these spaces by organizing each item so everything has a home and is easy to find. 

With drawer dividers, that big ladle won’t get stuck in the back and be difficult to reach. Nor will you have to dig through tools for the sifter, garlic press, or can opener. Every item will be meticulously organized and right within reach. 

Cabinet Pull Out Drawers

The cabinets in your small kitchen could likely benefit from organizers. For instance, with pull out drawers inside cabinets, you can keep larger items, like pots and pans, easily organized. You don’t have to bend down or get on your hands and knees to find the big sauce pot or the right-fit lid. Simply slide out the drawers and grab what you need. This also makes better use of your base cabinet space so cooking and baking are more efficient. 

Lazy Susans

Another area where space is often under-utilized is in corner cabinets. These are usually small and awkward, with a lot of wasted space. Yet, with a lazy Susan or corner pull out kitchen cabinet organizer, you can actually use every square inch of storage that’s available to you, tapping new storage potential for spices, baking supplies, or canisters of coffee, tea, or other beverages. 

Pull Out Trash and Recycle Drawers

When you have your trash or recycle bins in sight in your kitchen, they not only eat up floor space but can get smelly and unpleasant. Even a designer trash can takes up space. Instead, invest in a pull out trash or a trash and recycle drawer that uses the existing space inside your cabinets to store garbage and recyclables. 

Small Appliance Storage 

Get your toaster, coffee maker, mixer, and other small appliances off your kitchen countertops and keep them stored with a cabinet organizer made for these items. You can access them quickly and easily while keeping the counters in your small kitchen clear.

With less clutter in sight, your kitchen will appear neat, tidy, and even bigger. Yet, your small appliances will be right in reach when you need them. 

Stacking Shelves and Tiered Organizers

Cabinets and pantries often have a lot of unused vertical space inside them. With stacking shelves and tiered kitchen cabinet organizers, you can use all the vertical space that’s available. 

Use bins or canisters for items like rice and pasta, or flour and sugar, and stack these on shelves or tiered organizers. This not only increases space substantially but also makes it easy to see what you have and what you need to get more of.

Ready To Make Your Kitchen More Functional? 

If a full kitchen remodel isn’t in your budget, but you really need more space, kitchen cabinet organizers and storage solutions are the answers you’ve been looking for. You will have more space and less frustration, all in a cost-friendly way. 

If you’re looking for affordable exterior upgrades, consider cabinet painting or refacing services as well. Your cabinets will look and function like new in a matter of days, making your small kitchen feel big at heart!
