Kitchen Storage Ideas
Make it easier to find items in your kitchen cabinets and kitchen drawers with some new kitchen storage ideas. Start by going through each kitchen cabinet or drawer before you start and declutter any items you no longer need.
Think about do I really need all these pans or do I only use a few? The more clutter in your cabinets the harder it is to find the items you need.
Next use these cool kitchen storage solutions to finding your pots & pans, silverware, and Tupperware easily when you need them. No more searching all over for the pan you need to cook.

Pots & Pans Storage
Instead of just throwing your pans into the cabinets and then searching for them when it’s time to cook use this pan rack.
What’s great about this storage rack is it can be made into two separate racks or expanded to hold up to 7 pans, sheet pans, cookie sheets or muffin tins. I like that it’s versatile for each user.
Also when you use a potholder the pans are not stacked onto each other which can lead to scratches on the pans.
The Simple Trending Pot and Lid holder can be used lying flat or standing up. It looks great on your kitchen counter or inside your cabinets. I like that it is adjustable to the size of your pans and can also hold your pot lid.
Now that you have your pans organized in the cabinets you need a place to put your lids. This door-mounted pot lid rack is the perfect complement to the potholders. You’ll save tons of space by mounting it on your cabinet door.
Pan Storage Hack
Another great idea to keep your pans from scratching each other when stacked is to use cloth trivets in between pans.
In my own kitchen in the island’s large drawers, I stack my pans with these Woven Trivet Coasters in between each frying pan. It’s a clever way to keep your pans from scratching each other.
Bonus when you need extra trivets at holiday dinners you can use these.
Cutting Boards & Sheet Pan Storage
Make it easier to find all your cutting boards and sheet pans with a simple organizer in your cabinet like the one I used above.
It’s a great way to organize your cutting boards and sheet pans using this expandable 7-section holder. The non-slip feet keep the unit from moving while you’re grabbing a cutting board. You can easily see what you need and grab it from the kitchen cabinet.

Over the Door Cutting Board Holder
If you don’t have room on your shelves for these cutting boards try this cool kitchen hack with an over the cabinet door holder. Just hook it over your cabinet door and slide in your cutting boards or sheet pans.
Aluminum Foil Holder
Use this kitchen wrap organizer to hold your boxes of Aluminum Foil and Clingwrap. It mounts to your cabinet so you can hide the holder away and then easily grab foil when you need it.

Grocery Bag Holder
Do you have grocery store bags all over your cabinet? Mount this grocery store bag dispenser and have a small space to hold all your plastic bags.
Kitchen Hack: If you don’t want to spend money – use a tissue box or plastic cereal container to stuff all your grocery bags and easily pull them out when you need them.
Large Garbage Bag Rolls
This is a smart kitchen hack -Store your rolls of garbage bags on a wall-mounted paper towel holder. Attach the paper towel holder to the inside of your kitchen cabinet and quickly tear off a bag when you need it.
Here are two paper towel holders we like.
The Cary 360 involves no drilling instead just use the strong adhesive tape that is included. It also has a small shelf on which I like to store extra kitchen sponges or small bottles of detergent.
If you want something simpler try this paper towel roll that you can screw into the cabinet. Make sure you get one that has both ends closed so when you pull off a garbage bag it doesn’t go flying off the holder.
