Organizing Kitchen Cabinets If You Have A Small Kitchen

Kitchen Cabinets are the stock rooms of your house, an area packed with cookware, kitchenware, ingredients, and all the go-to essentials that we use in cooking. Storing all these essentials in an easy, accessible, and orderly manner can save up a lot of your time, energy, and space.

Mastering the art of kitchen cabinet organization can be the next step to being a kitchen perfectionist.

Here are a few productive ways in which you can organize your cabinet spaces:

1. Pots, Pans, and Lids

When it comes to organizing and arranging pots and lids has never been an easy task; In this case, pot lid organizers would be an excellent addition to your kitchen.

Pot lid organizers have slots that ensure no scattering and cluttering of pots and pans takes place and saves a lot of space.

Following are a few pocket-friendly ways to organize your pot lids in your kitchen:

  • Attaching command hooks at the back of your cabinet doors or walls could be a perfect way to deal with lids; They are super easy to put on and give you easy access to your pots and pans
  • Discover your own eureka moment by assembling your lids with the help of dish racks
  • Some pot lid organizers come with dividers that don’t only hold lids; but also pans, chopping boards, etc.
  • Lastly, a pot rail wouldn’t be a bad investment to hang your pot, pans, and other kitchenware.

While putting away your pots and pans, make sure you don’t throw them all in together, hoping they stay intact or together. Instead, segregate your pots from your pans.

2. Pairing

The method of grouping all the similar items is the key to organization. For example, if you are organizing and arranging your pots and pans; Ensure that all kinds of pots in your kitchen will be stacked together or would be in the same compartment as well as your pans. Such stacking lies behind big pots and pans that can fit and accommodate smaller pots and pans, saving space and time.

The same thumb rule applies to your appliances and other kitchen tools, as they will be easier to access when you need them when you are prepping your meals.

3. Vertical Storage

Stacking up your kitchenware, cutting boards, baking trays, sheets, serving dishes, and platters on each other is a bad example of kitchen organization. The ideal pattern is to store them vertically. Storing your items vertically using vertical dividers and shelf risers is an added advantage to every kitchen, as it makes cabinets orderly and makes space for other kitchenware.

4. Labeling

Label your containers. Contents, snacks, appliances, tools is a sign of a good and well-organized kitchen. By sticking labels on your kitchen items, you keep discipline and commit to being organized by holding yourself and others accountable. For example, if you have a drawer set aside and labeled as only for “baking goods,” there is less chance of other items being placed in that drawerHence labels are a visual reminder of keeping things back to where they belong.


A modular kitchen is an easy and modern way of designing your kitchen that gives you the liberty to customize your kitchen fittings and designs; Modular cabinets make up for more precision, are low at the expense, and are an exceptional fit.

Final Take, 

It may sound unbelievable, but taking small conscious steps to organize your kitchen can save up a lot of time and money. All the minor inconveniences like finding items, buying extra, or not identifying items can be cut down.
