Ideas for organising kitchen drawers
Do you often find yourself rummaging through cluttered kitchen drawers, looking for the right utensil? And are you one of those who say you'll organise it...one day, but never really get round to finding great solutions? If so, you're not alone. Disorganised kitchen drawers can make cooking a frustrating and time-consuming experience, but the good news is that it doesn't have to be that way! With a little bit of effort and finding the storage solutions that work for you, you can transform your kitchen drawers into efficient, organised spaces that make cooking and meal prep a breeze.
The great kitchen drawer declutter
The first step in organising your kitchen drawers is to declutter them. Go through each kitchen drawer and remove any items you don't use regularly, are broken or are outdated. This is a great opportunity to donate or recycle items that are still in good condition but that you no longer need.
As you're decluttering, think about the items you use most often and consider how to group them together in your kitchen drawers. Much like putting mugs in the cupboard above the kettle makes sense, so does having your garlic press to hand rather than, say, the pizza cutter that you only use once a month.
Categorise by Function
A fundamental principle of efficient drawer organisation is categorising items by function. Divide your kitchen drawers into sections based on the types of items they will hold. For example, designate a drawer for utensils, another for cooking tools, one for baking supplies and so on. This approach makes it easier to locate specific items quickly.
Embrace the power of Drawer Dividers
Once you've organised your kitchen drawers, the next step is to divide them into sections using drawer dividers and drawer organisers. This will help you keep similar items together and prevent them from rolling around in the drawer, getting stuck or gathering dust at the back of them. It also means you won't need to do a great declutter once a year; everything should stay manageable for a long time!
We offer a range of drawer dividers specifically designed to fit our kitchen drawers. These dividers are easy to install and can be adjusted to fit your specific needs. You can also check our other storage solutions for drawer organisers.
Optimise deep drawers with clever solutions
Deep drawers offer excellent storage capacity, but without proper organisation, the deep drawers can quickly become a black hole of clutter. Take advantage of this space by incorporating additional storage solutions such as sliding baskets or stacking bins. These options maximise vertical space and provide convenient access to items that would otherwise be challenging to reach. With clever solutions, your deep kitchen drawers become functional and efficient storage zones.
Unlock wall space for utensil storage
If you're short on kitchen drawer space in your kitchen, consider using wall space to store your utensils and tools. This can be done using a wall-mounted magnetic strip or a hanging rail with hooks. Not only does this free up valuable drawer space, but it also puts your utensils and tools within easy reach while you're cooking.
