Kitchen is one of those spaces in the house that tend to always get messy. Unlike your bookshelf, you can’t just put everything neatly and forget about it.

I cook every day, so every day I need all those pans, bowls, cutting boards and other things. So, I want everything to be easily accessible and also to have its own place. Because when I don’t need a mixing bowl, I don’t want it to stand in the middle of a kitchen and take all the space, right?

But not only I want everything to be organized, I also want it to look nice. Have you seen those pictures of beautifully organized kitchens and pantries, with light colors, fresh flowers and stuff? Ahh. I want to live in those pictures.

So even though that plastic shoe organizer must be very convenient, I’ll try to avoid putting it on my door as long as I can.

Here are some ideas on how to organize your kitchen, that I find both clever and cute!

    Ouu love the tea shelf and the pantry labels! My kitchen is always a disaster and I really have been meaning to re-organize. Did you find it time-consuming to implement these changes?

      Of course, projects where you need to build something (like a drawer organizer or tray divider) are a little more time-consuming, but they will save you so much time and energy in the long run! I hate it when even if I see a thing that I need I still have to take everything out because it’s all just a huge pile of baking trays, muffin tins, etc.

    Wow, these are all great ideas! I have literally no counter space in my kitchen so things get cluttered quickly, On top of not having a dishwasher. I’m a homes hook mama, and we use the kitchen multiple times everyday! I am bookmarking this page and will be coming back to put some of these ideas to good use! Thanks!

    I love the tea shelf idea! I love tea but having multiple boxes and bags of tea in a cabinet gets messy quick, and then it’s hard to find the one you’re looking for. I’ll have to use that idea in my kitchen! Thanks for the great ideas!
