Custom Kitchen Cupboard Organizers for a Functional Kitchen

When you choose a custom kitchen or you’re doing a kitchen renovation, you want it to look good, but you also want it to be practical and functional so it’s easy to keep your items organized.

Here are some ideas for kitchen cupboard organizers that you should consider choosing.

Include Pull-Out Drawers

Pull-out drawers are a great way to keep your pantry cabinet organized. They make it much easier to find what you need without having to reach way into the back or pull other items out first.

Choose the depth and width of your drawers, the material, and whether or not you want them to be exposed or have a door to keep them hidden. 

You can even take it up a notch by adding labels, internal trays and dividers to organize things like spices, cutlery, dried goods, snacks and more. 

Add an Appliance Garage

An appliance garage is a dedicated storage space for those appliances you need to use regularly but would rather not have out on display such as coffee makers, stand mixers, air fryers and even your microwave.

Ideas for appliance garages include:

  • Dedicated cupboard space or an open cubby
  • Roll-out counters
  • Fold away doors for easy access
  • Lift or roll-up cabinet doors

We love these inspirations by Better Homes and Gardens. Your options are limitless when it comes to smartly storing your appliances while keeping them within easy reach.

Add Clever Shelving Solutions

Different types of shelving can help maximize the space in your custom cabinetry. Consider adding these shelves to make organization a breeze:

  • Smart shelves: Similar to pull-out drawers, smart shelves are wide shelves that pull out to make it easier to reach things in the back. They can be installed to your preferred depth, making it possible to store almost anything.
  • Corner shelves: A corner shelf can maximize storage space in a hard-to-reach area. Open corner shelving can also add a stylish highlight to your kitchen where you can display special items.
  • Plate shelves: Storing your plates on specialized plate shelves that can be mounted to the wall or within the cabinet is a great way to free up shelf space for other items. As a bonus, your crockery is protected from any bumps or chips.

Add Kitchen Cabinet Accessories for Optimal Organization

Adding storage accessories can personalize your custom kitchen. There are many accessories and inserts available that can suit your specific needs and wants. For example:

Add a wine bottle organizer: A wine bottle organization system not only gives a dedicated location to store bottles but also adds a touch of panache to your kitchen.
Add a wine fridge in the same cabinet and you could have a perfectly organized at-home wine bar.  Bottle organizers also work as an alternative storage solution for pantry items like oils, bottles of vinegar and more.

Can storage system: Canned goods are usually a culprit for cabinet clutter, but they’re also a staple pantry item in any household. Keep them organized and keep track of what you have and what you’re running short of with a slanted can-rolling insert.

Lazy Susan: This turntable storage solution is great for a corner cabinet and works well for easily grabbing items that could get lost in the back of your cabinet. All you have to do is rotate until you find what you need. Also useful for storing larger items such as pots and pans.

Tricks and Tips for Organizing Your Kitchen Cupboards

Once your custom kitchen has been installed, then comes the fun part of filling it with your food, tools and equipment. 

There are many ways to keep your kitchen staples neat and tidy. These organizational tips and tricks will help ensure your pantry shelves and cupboards are easy to fill and stay organized all year round.

  • Baskets: A great alternative to drawers, baskets are a great way to store smaller items that would otherwise roll around or get easily lost behind other items. Use baskets for snacks, dried goods, spices or just those kitchen odds and ends. You can even add labels to the baskets to make it easy to find what you need the first time.
  • Containers: Use different-sized glass or plastic containers to separate items that share a cupboard or pantry space. For example, one container can host baking supplies such as flour, sugar, baking powder and flavourings. Another container can hold pasta and rice. 

Containers are also great for storing cleaning supplies and household necessities such as extra garbage, compost and recycling bags, dishwasher tablets, liquid detergents and more. 

  • Add dividers: Adding dividers to your shelves and drawers prevents your everyday essentials from becoming one big jumbled mess. Vertical dividers are ideal for items that would otherwise be stacked, such as chopping boards or cookbooks. Drawer organizers are also great for utensils and sharp knives that you don’t want out on display.
