Kitchen space utilization is all about organization; the more organized a kitchen is, the more “stuff” you can keep within reach. Here are my 5 golden rules for keeping your kitchen completely organized.
Golden Rule #1–Be a Wall Flower–
Utilize all the space available (this includes walls). By hanging hooks to store utensils, it’ll free up often sparse counter top space.
Make creative use of space
Golden Rule #2–Be Dimensional–
Think 3 dimensional by stacking bowls and plates. Most kitchen stores carry wire shelves to get even more storage within the cabinet.
Think three-dimensional. Stack the plates and bowls. Kitchen stores also carry wire racks for the inside of cabinets to add even more storage space
Golden Rule #3–Out With The Old–
Pitch single-purpose tools. Yes, I understand there are several single-purpose tools that are irreplaceable (egg slicer, peeler, mallet), but look at what you really use and you’d be surprised how few tools you actually use on a regular basis.
Out with the old. Get rid of the single purpose tools that only clutter your drawers.
Golden Rule #4–Be Transparent–
Utilize see-through containers for easy access. Or if placing the items in drawers, label the top of the container.

Golden Rule #5–Utilize Spacesavers–
Pull-outs are a serious space saving help. I love my pots and pans pullout (shown below). The lids stack easily on the top and the pots and pans are organized nicely and not smashing into each other ruining the non-stick surface.
