Organized upper kitchen cabinets in 5 easy steps is on the blog today! These upper kitchen cabinets are where kitchen utensils are stored in most homes. So, this is absolutely a big deal to me because I want to make sure that every single item in the cabinets is clean and organized. After all, being a clean freak and organization obsessed is good to keep a healthy lifestyle. No one wants to be sick from filth, right?
I have to admit that although I am an organization obsessed, simple and easy steps are my favorite. I don’t have time to re-invent the wheel. Seriously, who has time in the world to make things intricate? I bet close to none! While I was doing this project, I am once again reminded of how vertically challenged I am. That’s why I made sure that the placement of each item is strategically done based on how often it is being used. In case you are wondering if we have a step stool, of course! What am I going to do without it? Can anyone relate to this?
It’s been one year ago, immediately after we close our house the very first thing I did was thoroughly clean the kitchen area and install shelf liner on cabinets. I was using a white shelf liner then. It was clean and I surely love it. But yesterday I decided to replace it with a patterned liner. It’s a good contrast with all of the white kitchen utensils and glassware as well. Huh! As if our guests would check each cabinet when they visit us.
Organized Upper Kitchen Cabinets in 5 Easy Steps:
1) Take everything out and decide what items to keep or donate. As a minimalist, I only keep items that we usually use. We don’t cook often, so we don’t have a huge collection of kitchenware. There are a few items that I decided to donate mostly the old mismatched ones and absolutely not our style.
2) Clean the space (I mean each cabinet shelf). I used ‘Clorox Citrus Blend Disinfecting Wipes’. This is my go-to when cleaning our house because of its multi-surface cleaning feature.
Hint: Make sure to check if this product works well with your cabinet materials before using it.
3) Measure the cabinet shelves for the shelf liner and organizers you’ll be using. Measure. Measure. Measure. It’s the only way to get the project done the right way.
4) Install the shelf liner and position the organizers as to where you want to place them. Depending on the size of the cabinets and how many you have in your kitchen, installing a shelf liner may take longer. Since our kitchen is not grandiose in size and we only have a few cabinets, the installation process only took me about less than an hour. Step 1 is the one where I took a longer time (if you know what I mean, deciding what to keep or donate).
How about the organizers? This is a bit tricky. Because I can’t find all that I like in our local store. So, a couple of them was purchased at the store while the rest were ordered online.
5) Put the items back on each shelf. This is the most awaited part when organizing! I love to see the transformation of a project every single time. Don’t you?
