O’Brien Harris I spent my afternoon yesterday cleaning out closets. And man, oh man, did it feel good! When you’re as… um… organizationally challenged as I am, you have to do Spring and Fall cleaning. And maybe a few other times along the way. I literally feel like I lost ten pounds — no diet necessary! When I get on a spree like this, there’s no stopping me! I’m looking for a little inspiration to get my kitchen back tip top shape… We hope it inspires you to a little kitchen organization of your own!
Hands down, my favorite kitchen organizational essential is my hermetic glass jars. Opening the door and seeing row after row of gorgeous, clean, streamlined glass is wonderful! And, as a bonus, it’s a great a great way to eat clean. Who wants to cram that perfect pantry full of cookies when all those beans and grains look so very lovely! (Okay, there’s usually a glass jar of a cookie or two too…)
Organizing is like dressing. If you don’t have a great foundation, it’s over before it began. That’s why great shelving is totally crucial to a perfectly organized kitchen. (And it’s ALL 25% off at the Container Store… I literally am in love with that place!)
Artickoke, ltd Drawers with custom organization are phenomenal. But, if you’re like us, the world was not that kind to you. We think our bamboo cutlery trays and drawer organizers, with all those little customizable compartments are pretty close to the real thing. There’s nothing like opening that gorgeously organized drawer.
We don’t know about you, but we absolutely adore huge drawers for organizing absolutely everything. Wonderful!
Now this is a coffee station. For those of us who don’t have a massive, built-in espresso machine, there are always other options… Since we are sans gorgeous coffee cabinet, we got sick of big coffee makers taking up valuable counter space. Enter: Bialetti (like those pretty silver coffee makers in the cabinet.) Fill it with water, scoop in the coffee, pop it on the stove. And put it away when you’re finished. Plus, it’s super yummy!
A perfectly organized wine fridge is such a kitchen essential. You can be ready for a party at a moment’s notice — and the bubbly is already cold!
Matching spices are THE BEST! We think we would cook more if we had a drawer like this…
Tom Howley Separate spaces for trash and recycling is such a simple concept but so incredibly useful… especially for the person taking out the trash!
Wow! Talk about an organized refrigerator! We would adore having all of our drinks separate from our food.
This recessed space is one of the best kitchen ideas we’ve seen yet. All the essentials are right at hand but still don’t take up valuable counter space.
What a fantastic use of those awkward corner spaces! We’re feeling more organized already. How about you?
Thanks for inviting us into your (very organized?) home today!
