Tips for Drawer and Cabinet Storage

  • Add pull out drawers to give you easy access to pans in kitchen cabinets.
  • Use dowels to keep plastic containers under control. Simply strategically place the wooden pegs to keep similar sized items stacked in place.
  • For Tupperware lids, separate them by sizes as well and store them in their own boxes.
  • Use drawer organizers or small bins in your “junk drawer.”
  • Place flatware like utensils in different dividers, keeping like utensils together.
  • Have clear organizers or acrylic dividers in your drawers so you can see everything while also keeping it from feeling too crowded.
  • Use a built-in knife box in your drawer to hold all your kitchen knives.
  • Layer multiple trays to expand your space in deeper drawers.
  • Have a charging drawer, which you dedicate to keep tech items such as phone chargers.
  • If you’re upgrading your kitchen on a budget, use small cardboard boxes from around your house to separate items.
