It seems like our kitchen can be quite like our closets: clutter and hard to manage. The counters become spots for collecting junk from the fam and the cabinets get filled with more than just pots and pans. Well, it’s time to get a bit neater and tidier, don’t you think? Check out these 15 kitchen storage ideas that will help you declutter
1. Cutting Slots
House Beautiful inspires our kitchen storage with this area that was make for cutting boards or even bakeware. Just slide your necessities in and you’ve got an easy-peasy way to organize as well as find and grab what you need. If you have the extra space, have one installed or DIY one on your own.
2. Keep Spices in Drawers
Don’t have your spices taking up space in the pantry or on the countertops – especially if those areas aren’t the most spacious. Instead, do what Taste of Home suggests, put those spices in some drawers. You’d probably find that it’s so much easier to find what you need this way.
3. Pegboard Wall
Pegboards aren’t just for the garage or the craft room. According to A Beautiful Mess, they’re great for the kitchen as well. What’s great about this project is that they take function and organizational and turn it into a piece of art for the space as well.
