We will be moving into a kitchen that’s smaller than the one we currently have if we go with the house I showed you (which I’m 99% sure about). I’m not quite sure how I’m going to set things up and where I’ll put everything but I thought I’d share some great ideas for organizing a small kitchen that I found!
Moving is such a great opportunity to not only get rid of stuff but to start out more organized! I’m really looking forward to that! And kitchen organization usually isn’t too difficult, even when the kitchen already has food, plates, etc. in the cupboards. All you need are some clever organization solutions, like the ideas below!
10 Ideas for Organizing a Small Kitchen
1. Pull Out Rolling Rack
People get really creative when it comes to organizing a small kitchen! Make a narrow rolling rack for that wasted space next to the fridge, like this one by DIY Passion.
2. Inner Door Spice + Utensil Organizer
Organize your kitchen cabinet door insides so that you can use them to organize your spices and utensils, like this clever solution by Jenna Burger.
3. Burner Cover Working Surface
Find ways to give yourself more workable surfaces like this project. Here’s how to build burner covers that extend your counter top space like in this great example from The Kitchnn.
4. Backsplash Baskets
Using your backsplash area is a great way to keep your counters free, like in this organized kitchen from No. 29 Design (It looks like this post has since moved. If you know where the new link is, let us know and we’ll update the link).
5. Cabinet Pegboard Organizer
This is a great way to organize a small kitchen that doesn’t have many drawers. Check out the very organized cupboard from Food Network.
6. Sink Cutting Board
Organizing a small kitchen requires making use of all available space. Get a cutting board that goes over part of your sink for more counter space, like in this kitchen from Sweet Verbena. I know Ikea sells one but I’ve seen some at TJMaxx as well.
7. Shower Caddy Produce Rack
Use the space at the end of a cabinet like this idea from Domestic Diva. She hung a shower caddy up and used it to store some vegetables.
8. Pegboard Pot Rack
If you have the wall space, a pegboard pot rack like this one from Rice Designs is a great way to free up cabinet space.
9. Side of Fridge Spice Organizer
There are so many clever kitchen storage ideas out there! Utilize the side of your refrigerator with narrow plastic storage baskets like in this example from Instructables. I’ve seen these little baskets at dollar stores.
10. Under Shelf Racks
These look like great kitchen cabinet organizers! Double your cabinet space by using under the shelf racks like in this organized cabinet from HGTV.
I hope you got some ideas for making the most of your small kitchen!
