Just seven months before I showed up to help, Ozzie and Lauren had purchased this home and were ready to move in. But not before they reworked their massive backyard, laid flooring in their dining...
Kitchen Organization Ideas You’d Never Think Of
Okay guys, you all are ALWAYS asking me for my favorite kitchen organization ideas. Because let’s be honest, is there anything better than a REALLY well organized kitchen?! Okay, I’m sure there might be better things, but this is pretty high on my list of “things that make me super happy.” We spend a lot of time in our kitchen, and having organizational systems in place just makes cooking and prep time that much easier and more enjoyable.
And if you’re a Hidden Potential fan (thanks for watching!), you know kitchen remodels are kinda my thing. And my absolute speciality in these kitchen remodels is adding epic features that make you say “WHAT?! COOL!” but also “that makes my life SO MUCH EASIER!” Who doesn’t want life to be easier? Anybody? Okay, moving on!
Anyway, when I was planning my kitchen in my new house I recently moved into, I definitely took a page out of my own Hidden Potential playbook to step up my organization game. I went back through all of my favorite projects to browse all the cool things we did in these kitchens to customize them, and it inspired me! I realized it would be helpful to gather all this kitchen organization inspo into one place in case I’m not the only one OBSESSED with something like a hidden paper towel holder, a pull-out pizza station, hidden tray storage, and more!
My Favorite Kitchen Organization Ideas
Hidden Paper Towel Storage
Yes, this is the face you make when you realize paper towel can be hidden inside a cabinet.
You could also hide it under the countertop. Either way you choose it, hidden paper towel storage is oh-so satisfying.
Hidden Tray Storage
And this is the face you make when your idea to integrate beautiful wooden trays into the side of a kitchen island comes out even better than you imagined. If you do a lot of entertaining, this is a must-have amenity!
Hidden Cutting Board Storage
Here’s another twist on hidden things: hiding your wooden cutting boards in between the cabinets! You need to chop something? BOOM. Your cutting board is right there at the countertop waiting for you.
Pull-Out Pizza Station
Do you LOVE homemade pizza night at your house? Why not make a pull-out pizza station!
I get a lot of questions on social media about this so I’ll answer them here. Yes, the little compartments pop out of the drawer for easy cleaning. No, this drawer isn’t refrigerated. You just set it up for pizza-building time so you have all your ingredients in one place! This idea would work for baking, or taco night – the sky’s the limit!
Toe-Kick Secret Storage
How about making the toe-kicks (that’s the recessed space that’s under the cabinet) actual drawers that store things?! Why would we waste this space if we didn’t have to? This was a MAJORLY COOL upgrade.
Perfectly Organized Utensils
How many times have you reached into the drawer where you keep all the “things we stir with” and they all get caught on each other? Not anymore!
Drawer Peg System Storage
Sometimes having a big drawer for storage is cool, but then everything slides around in it and gets all jumbled up. Then nothing is organized, and you end up annoyed. I made this peg system to utilize the drawer space to its full potential, and it made all the difference!
Eye-Catching Wine Storage
You know what’s awesome? Wine storage. You know what’s even more awesome? Wine storage that looks cool.
Fully stocked and satisfying to look at! Win-win!
Hidden Device Charging Station
We all need to charge stuff. We all end up charging our stuff in the kitchen. Cords sure don’t do wonders for a pretty kitchen, do they?! Creating a charging drawer is such a sweet amenity for a kitchen – plus it greatly reduces the risk of something spilling on your devices!
