Top 6 Ideas for Kitchen Organization

Looking for more space in your kitchen for dishes, pots, pans and utensils? Does it always seem like there's been an explosion of dishes and cookware in your kitchen? If yes, then consider the following:

The Lazy Susan is made up of a collection of shelves, usually two or three, that can rotate. Lazy Susan come in multiple forms, but circular Lazy Susans are most common. While they are often found on large kitchen tables, they can also be found between two kitchen cabinet doors in the corner. Lazy Susans are great for storing small kitchen items, such as spices, can openers and utensils.

2.Hanging Pot Racks - Elegant Storage

Hanging pot racks will serve you in two ways: They'll suspend your pots and pans from the kitchen ceiling - this will give you more shelf space; and they'll look great, giving your kitchen an air of elegance.

3.Kitchen Cart - Convenience on Wheels

The kitchen cart, while not glamorous, can serve you well. Often made of wood, they can contain moveable shelves to make room for both large and small items, as well as kitchen cabinet doors and draws with which to place everything from cook books to appliances.

4.Bakers Rack

Bakers racks come in a multitude of materials, from wood and glass to stainless steel. They serve as shelving units on which you can stack your pots, pans and food items.
