On my post ‘Organized Kitchen Counter,’ you can see that our kitchen area as a whole didn’t give you an idea of the disarray in the drawers. Though each drawer is clean, the truth is they were disorganized. Over the past few months, I didn’t pay attention to the small hidden areas in our house such as kitchen drawers which I know need as much attention as the big visible ones. So, while organizing ours, I came up with these 5 steps to organized kitchen drawers.
5 Steps to Organized Kitchen Drawers
1) Take everything out. It’s the best way to start the organization process because it helps you see every item you have. I don’t know about you, but I always like to empty the space before organizing whether in a small or big area in the house.
2) Clean the space. Wipe it with an all-purpose cleaner. Rinse, then dry with a clean cloth. Disinfect the surfaces with an antibacterial kitchen cleaner.
3) Add drawer liner. Drawer liner is a must to keep the space clean and to make it look charming. After all, these hidden spaces can make a significant impact.
4) Group same items. Know what things you have and which of them are mismatched. If you have many of those and you don’t want to get rid of them yet, make sure to designate a space for them and revisit before purchasing new ones later on.
5) Organize the utensils. Finally, now that you have all items grouped, it’s time to organize them in your clean drawers.
What materials did I use?
Firstly, I used solid white self-adhesive shelf liner which I bought at Walmart. It’s my go-to liner as I tackle every drawer and cabinet shelf in our house. I love its clean look! It gives the small hidden spaces a good impression.
Then, I use acryclic silverware and utensil organizer. The dividers are well-designed, and it’s easy to clean. I’d like to keep our drawers uncomplicated, so the combination of the drawer liner and organizer is perfect.
That’s it! Simple and easy 5 steps to organized kitchen drawers. For now, it’s just my husband and me (plus our 5-year old Shih Tzu), so we keep things minimal. What works in our home may vary on yours. I’m sure if you have a big family you’ll need more drawers for your utensils.
