16 Kitchen Hacks to Maximize Your Space:

  • Use pretty and functional jars on your counter tops to hold frequently used pantry staples!
  • Make your own fridge mats out of placemats. Makes spill clean-ups so simple!
  • Use your pantry doors as a kitchen command center. Don’t have a pantry? Use the back of a cabinet door!
  • Organize your coffee supplies in a decorative and functional way…bistro style in a seagrass basket.
  • Keep clutter off of your kitchen counter using a decorative and functional wall storage system.
  • Use lazy susans to store canned goods in your pantry.
  • Use a cake stand to hold your kitchen sink essentials like dish soap and hand lotion!
  • Install your own kitchen sink tip outs to utilize wasted kitchen space. Use them to hold sponges and brushes.
  • Use wire pencil baskets screwed to a side wall in your pantry or closet for spices.
  • Use a basket to organize all your cleaning supplies under the sink.
  • Use labelled mason jars to store spices in a drawer.
  • Use inexpensive spring tension rods to create dividers for cupboards.
  • Use bins in your fridge to group similar items together and keep everything organized!
  • Use an unused wall space in your kitchen to act as a command centre.
  • Free up cupboard space, and use an armoire or set of drawers to store linens and things from your kitchen!
  • Hang a shelf with a towel rack above the sink and use storage containers to hold items like towels, soap, and other small kitchen items.

    You’d think I’m pregnant again, or that it’s spring with all the cleaning and organizing I’m doing… (wink)

    Lovely, Jo. I think I’m going to get those wire pencil baskets to free up a much needed drawer here at the estate.

    These are some great tips! I like to organize everything in my house right before Christmas. I feel like it’s good Karma to leave space for new treasures that Santa/husband may bring.
