Kitchen Organization is one of my most asked about topics and one of my favorite to do. Not just because I love a good DIY project but because it can make a big impact on your every day function and use of the space. Good organization can save you time and frustration. Here is a quick story about a DIY project I recently tackled. Enjoy 🙂
Recently it came to my attention that we had two trouble spots in our kitchen. Here is a step by step guide of fixes with photos. (of course who doesn’t love show and tell)
1st problem Tray & Cookie sheets
Problem- Cookie sheets, platters, cutting boards and more are falling over in the cabinet.
I couldn’t get anything out without all of it coming out. Finally I had it. Time to roll up my sleeves and fix this the right way.
First step– First clear everything out of the space and start with a clean palette.
This also gives you a chance to go through things. Do you use these items regularly? Have you touched in a year? Two years? Did you not know you had it? Maybe it is time to reassess and pass on what you aren’t using.
Solution- I used tray dividers to keep things organized. This allows everything to be stored on their edge without falling over. I can now pullout 1 item at a time!
These U shaped tray dividers by Rev-A-Shelf anchor better than others on the market and keep them from tipping over. They are easy to install, they only require 4 screws.
After- I love the results and only took me about 30 min. (Okay… well an hour but only because I broke a bowl and had to clean up all the glass.)
Problem #2 to follow. Keep your eyes open it’s coming soon.
Where are your trouble spots in your kitchen? Leave a comment below with a spot you need help. I will pick one or two of you and do a DIY spot light on a solution for you.
Do you have too many trouble spots to count? Do you need more help than 1 hour of DIY can handle? Let me know I’d love to help you dig deeper and develop a new plan that works for you.
