If you have a huge kitchen in your home, but somehow still you lack space, and all your stuff looks like a mess from spices to appliances, you just need to reassess your kitchen organization skills. The problem here is not that your kitchen is small, but you are not using the space right.

Only those can master the art of kitchen organization who know exactly how to use even the smallest space or what we call a dead space in the kitchen.

Here, we have put together a few organizing tips and design ideas so that you can utilize all your kitchen space. Let’s take a look.

  • Organizing Refrigerator Is An Essential

One of the messiest places in most kitchens is the refrigerator because it is the place where most of your edibles go. From food leftovers to fruits and vegetables to spices and poultry, all of them are supposed to go in refrigerators. So, what would you do if your refrigerator did not have enough space to hold all the things anymore? Will you go buy a second one?

Well, of course not! If you go on buying a new refrigerator every time your old one fills up, you will be left with no space. The wise idea here is to organize your refrigerator. We suggest using the refrigerator organizing bins so that not only you can have separate compartments for all your edibles, but also you will be able to save a lot of space inside your refrigerator.

In addition, other than providing you with extra space in the refrigerator, you would know which things can be found through the organizers. For example, if you are looking for a particular spice, instead of turning your whole refrigerator upside down, you can simply look into the organizing bin with all the spices, and you will find the one you want!

  • Learn The Art of Draw Organizing

One of the best organizing tips we learn during kitchen organization is to make sure all our kitchen drawers are well organized. No one likes to open a drawer and see a pile of utensils and not be able to find the one they are looking for. This is why you should always keep all your utensils separated in the drawer.

You might wonder that even if you separate the utensils, there will be a time when it will all become a mess again because of the frequent use of the drawer. Well, for that, we have a solution for you, and that is to get a drawer organizer set for your drawers. This way, you will be able to have a separate compartment for your forks, spoons, knives, etc.

Moreover, through this organizing method, you won’t have to search in your drawer to get the knife you need. Also, once you start using a drawer organizer, you will notice that the number of utensils your drawer held back then without the organizer is way less than it holds now!

So, instead of using two drawers for just your silverware, you can store it all in one, and have the second one save space for other things.

  • Utilize All Your Space (Even Under The Sink)

Most people make one mistake that causes them trouble in managing space in their kitchen. And that mistake is to be ignorant of possible small spaces. For example, many people do not pay attention to the space under their sink and often miss the chance to store a few things in there.

Of course, you cannot put something edible in there, but you can put other things such as your kitchen cleaners, dish soaps, and kitchen towels. And to put them all in the right way, you must have an under-sink organizer so that nothing creates a mess. You can divide your kitchen cleaners and cloth with the help of an under-sink organizer.

  • Get An Extra Storage Unit

If you think that the cabinets and drawers in your kitchen are not enough for your stuff and you need more storage space, we have got a solution for you.

Instead of getting rid of the extra stuff, how about you get a compact, slim space rolling cart for your kitchen? You can put your snacks, drinks, and fruits on the cart and save up space in your cabinet.

Moreover, another benefit of this would be that you will not have to go through the trouble of serving snacks every time you have guests over. You can simply roll your snack cart from the kitchen to your living room, and your guests could help themselves to their choice of snacks and drink.

Please note that putting snacks and drinks is just a suggestion. You can put any other stuff you want to as long as you are saving up space in your kitchen.

Utilize All the Dead Spaces in Your Kitchen

One of the most important things to achieve optimum kitchen organization is learning to manage all dead places in the kitchen including rotten fruits. When you think that all our kitchen space is utilized, you ignore these dead places, which as a matter of fact, if you start to use, will help you save a lot of space in the kitchen. All we need are a few organizers to help us in the process!
