How to Organise Kitchen Drawers

How to organise your kitchen drawers. Organised kitchen drawers means that all your space is used efficiently and it’s easier to find items when you need them. Some easy tips on how to organise and declutter kitchen drawers.

Disorganised kitchen drawers are a breeding ground for clutter! Like any space that lacks order, kitchen drawers become a dumping ground for stray and often unnecessary items. But if you’re like me and enjoy cooking and need to optimise your space then it’s worth the time to make your kitchen as efficient as possible.

Ideally your kitchen should be as user-friendly as possible for when you are cooking and preparing food. Now you can achieve this, with this easy step-by-step guide I have created to help you organise your kitchen drawers and make your kitchen as efficient as possible.

4 STEPS TO ORGANISE YOUR KITCHEN UTENSILS

  1. REMOVE ALL ITEMS from your kitchen drawers and wipe each drawer clean.
  2. GROUP LIKE ITEMS together – cutlery, gadgets, tea towels etc.
  3. PURGE broken items or any that you’ve not used in the last 12 months.
  4. ORGANISE by assessing your current drawer storage solutions, implementing new systems where needed, and by avoiding overcrowding your drawers.
