Organization In the Kitchen picture

When referring to the organization of a kitchen, we mostly think of gadgets, dishes, and other non-perishable items.  But since a residential kitchen isn’t as likely to have chopped veggies and herbs sitting out all night in little dishes, we always need a place for everything, and everything definitely needs a place.  Here’s some inspiration about how to define a spot for everything in the kitchen in 12 shots.

Stacking plates is the option we all know, but sometimes it leads to some misfortune when everything crashes down on the floor because of some mistake… A good plate stacker will definitely help, considering you can sort your plates by their dimensions.

Vertical drawers are welcome when we need to organize spices boxes, salt, pepper and small utensils. They help to fill the gap between larger cabinets that come in standardized sizes.

Ok, I admit this is more like a gadget. But please consider that retro-lighting in a large drawer is a good thing when it’s 10pm and you need some obscure stuff you use only twice a year!

This is my favorite by far! Storing herbs, oil, vinegar and other condiments in an inverted island on the counter is a very smart move. Moreover, this allow us to bring more freshness and greenery in the kitchen.

Segmenting your drawers with dividers will help when you have a lot of utensils and flatware. Think that plates are also welcome in mid of bottom drawers as they are easier to grab there.

Some manufacturers allows you to integrate double-width drawers with special robust fixations. This is the dream of many of us to have a whole pantry available at the pull of a drawer. One more time, it’s better to have your ingredients and utensils at low to mid level so you can exactly see what you have at hand, without the clutter that usually stack up in the upper cabinetry.
