Whether you’ve got a small kitchen or a big one, keeping your cupboards and cabinets tidy is often a problem. However, with good organization and a few tricks to apply on a daily basis, it’s possible to have a tidy kitchen and optimize your space to the maximum. Discover our tips for organizing your kitchen cabinets.
Tip no. 1: Sort out
Before you start arranging and categorizing your various items, start by sorting out your cupboards. In your grocery cupboards, check all expiration dates and discard out-of-date foods. And don’t forget to highlight short-dated products to limit food waste.
As for your kitchen cupboards, take out all your utensils and sort out those you never use or have in duplicate. Also remember to check that all your appliances are working properly, to avoid cluttering up your kitchen with faulty ones. Set-aside utensils, crockery and appliances can be donated, sold or recycled, depending on their condition.
Tip 2: Categorize
Once you’ve sorted, consider grouping items in the same category together. This saves time when you’re looking for something. Then think about where you’d like to store this category. It has to fit in with your lifestyle and the way you cook. We recommend, for example, keeping your cooking utensils close to your hob, your oven dishes in the same column as the oven, and placing seldom-used appliances at the top of the cupboards or in less accessible areas.
Tip 3: Choose the right kitchen cabinets to optimize storage

It’s essential to install as much storage as possible in your kitchen, depending on the space available. You can choose wall units that go all the way up to the ceiling if you have a small floor space, or opt for a central island if you have a large space.
You should also choose pedestals that optimize your storage space. Pedestals and columns with integrated drawers are perfect for keeping all your utensils in view and better organizing your storage space.
