Organizing Your Kitchen Utensils

organize utensils

If you love to bake and/or cook, chances are you’ve got plenty of utensils at hand. These can easily become cluttered, however, especially if thrown in a drawer with no organized method keeping them easy to spot and/or grab. Here are some helpful tips to make life in the kitchen easier for you.

  1. Install a towel rack. If you have open space on a kitchen wall, try installing a towel rack with “S” hooks to hang your utensils.
  2. Try a pegboard. If you aren’t too keen on the towel rack, try a pegboard instead to help store your utensils. It will work, as these are often used in garages and workshops to hold tools.
  3. Hang a rake. Yes, that’s right, a rake! If you like the rustic, farmhouse/outdoors look, you can hang a rake on your wall to be used as a hook for utensils.
  4. Utilize a pitcher. If you have some antique pitchers around the kitchen, feel free to use those to store your utensils.
  5. Build your own D.I.Y. utensil rack. If you take pride in making your own items feel free to create your own utensil rack.
  6. Try a different location. If there is no wall space and the countertop space is limited, you could hang them from a bar that has been installed on the side of your kitchen cabinets. Another option is placing them in bins that fit into a pull-out drawer.
  7. Attach hooks to the inside of cabinet doors. Make sure, however, that the doors close completely shut.
  8. Install an under-the-cabinet mount. These go underneath cabinets and have flexible grippers that will hold the utensils in place.
  9. Switch up the position. If you prefer to keep them in a drawer, try storing them diagonally with dividers between them.
  10. Get crafty and colorful. If you have children, you may find that it’s fun to build a storage container together out of their Lego blocks. This creates a fun family project and adds a whimsical flair to your kitchen.
