How to Organize Your Kitchen Drawers
I love starting the new year with a fresh perspective and an organized home. I am starting in my kitchen. My kitchen drawers have gotten disorganized and messy during the holidays. Baking, cooking, and entertaining have taken their toll, and it’s time to clean out and organize the kitchen drawers!
I have three easy and effective steps for tackling this task. And I’m sharing my favorite kitchen organizing products with you. I’m taking all the guesswork out of getting your kitchen organized for the new year!
3 Steps to Organizing Kitchen Drawers
Ok, here they are! My 3 steps to achieving clean and totally organized kitchen drawers!
Step 1: Take Everything Out!
The first thing you need to do if you want to tackle organizing your kitchen is to empty all the drawers! Take everything out and make three piles. One for donating, one for keeping, and one for garbage. Get rid of anything that you don’t use, including missing parts (hello, Tupperware) and broken items. You will be surprised at what you find.
If you are short on space, this is a great time to really assess an item’s value and whether or not you want it taking up space in your kitchen! When I organized my kitchen drawers, I found that I had six spatulas! I kept three and put the others in the donation pile.
I use this same mentality with my clothing as well. If I haven’t worn it in a year, I will donate it. Of course, there are exceptions to this, but it’s a great starting point.
Step 2: Designate a Space for Everything.
Now that you have everything out of the drawers, put all of your items together by type. Then, figure out the best spot for things. For example, put all of your kitchen spatulas together and determine which drawer makes the most sense to keep them in.
Also, keep cooking utensils together and have them close by the stove and oven. Some of this is common sense, but you get the idea!
Step 3: Measure and Shop for Drawer Organizers in
Once you have figured out what will go in each drawer, it’s time to get those drawers organized! Measure each drawer and make a list of what will go in that space.
My favorite place to shop for drawer organizing supplies is The Container Store. I found some amazing deep drawer organizers that came in so many different dimensions to fit the drawer perfectly.
Make sure you take the dimensions of each drawer you are organizing before heading to the store. You will want to know the width, length, and depth of each drawer.
I made a list of each drawer with its dimensions and what was going to be stored in it. This made shopping more efficient and easy! If You want to Purchase Kitchen Products, Visit Elementra Kitchen in Surat.
How to Organize Deep Kitchen Drawers
When we remodeled our kitchen, we opted to replace the lower cabinets with pull-out drawers. I love having the deep drawers for storage, but they can easily get messy and out of control!
Here are some tips for organizing deep kitchen drawers.
Stack like items in your deep kitchen drawers. Casserole dishes and mixing bowls fit great in these large drawers. I like to stack dishes to save space, but only if they nest well together. And I never stack more than three. Otherwise, it becomes a leaning tower of Pisa!
Use drawer dividers to keep your deep kitchen drawer organized. I love these bamboo dividers to make a large kitchen drawer more organized. By creating sections within the space, you assign each area a purpose. I used these drawer dividers in the drawer that holds all of my kids cups and school lunch containers. The dividers also hold the items in place rather than falling all over the place when opening and closing the drawer!
Stack items vertically. I found these great wooden organizers that allow me to store my muffin tins and cooling racks vertically. This saves so much space and is great for items like these that don’t stack very well.
