DIY // A Home for It All Kitchen Organization

Clutter!  Do you suffer from it? We sure do.  I like to have everything put away in its place, but for some reason everything always finds its way onto our kitchen counters.

Before the little kitchen remodel, we stored our dishes and food in the cabinets (like most sane folks), but we also had to add a buffet to store all of our little appliances, such as the crockpot, rice cooker and blender.  And then the food also found its way into the hallway closet.  There's just never enough space for it all. So we copied the cool kids and installed some open shelving to showcase our white dishes and maximize our cabinet space. Check out the open-shelving tutorial I created for Houzz.

We also added a few other key wall storage items to help us say adios to the countertop clutter.  Ikea hit the mark again with their wall storage options.  We implemented their Grundtal magnetic knife rack {$8.99} and their Inreda glass rack {$10 for 5-pack}, which we still have yet to put up.  We also used Ikea's Bygel rail with a couple old refrigerator baskets for some additional wall storage.

Plus some mounted cork inside our cabinets to post recipes and important information - like contact numbers for the babysitter.

Lastly, we created some magnetic spice jars thanks to the tips by Emma & Elsie at A Beautiful Mess.

So what about you guys?  Have you implemented non-traditional storage options to help get your kitchen super organized?  Do tell.



  1. This looks fabulous! Love the cork inside the cabinet. Ikea always manages to come to the rescue, don't they? ;) xo

  2. Can I ask where you got the jars with the wooden lids! Love them!

  3. Hi Hannah. I scored the jars at my local goodwill. West Elm used to have a more modernized version but it looks like they're sold out. :( http://www.westelm.com/products/mrk-wood-glass-storage-jars-d722/?pkey=call-kitchen&cm_src=all-kitchen||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_--_-

    There are also these gorgeous acacia wood topped canning jars. Swoon. http://merchant4.com/under-50/limpid-jar.html

  4. Ha! Just saw this! Nothing like being two years behind. ;)

  5. Thanks so much! They're seriously gorgeous! I love wood lids!
