Organizing your kitchen cabinets

Nobody wants a cluttered and disorganized kitchen. But with all of the equipment and cooking tools that you use on a daily basis, things can get messy in a hurry. By having organized cabinets, you can find what you need in the blink of an eye. Here are a few smart organizing ideas for your kitchen:

A Lazy Susan

Consider slipping one of these in your cabinets to organize pots, pans, plates, bowls, spices and more. No need to reach far back into your custom cabinets - simply turn the Lazy Susan for easy access.

Go through your items

There may be certain contents sitting in your kitchen that you either don't use anymore, or rarely use. To de-clutter, take a look at all of the items and donate (or toss) those that you don't really need.

Utilize the inside

You can mount a piece of corkboard on the inside of a cabinet door for posting recipes, leaving notes, and hanging up shopping lists, calendars, keys and more. It's an easy way to know where everything is.

Open shelves

Take advantage of your vertical wall space with open shelves that extend from your countertop to the ceiling. This lets you put your favorite kitchen pieces (or cookbook collections) on display, which makes them very easy to spot when you need to use them.
