1- Keep the necessary
Generally, most kitchen problems are caused by excess items.
There are lots of pots, pans, cutlery, cups and even supplies that don’t fit anywhere.
Before you start the organization, think: which items do you really use and are needed and which can be dispensed with?
2- Leave what you use most handy
The crowded benches also give a bad impression of mess and disorganization.
At this point, try to leave only those indispensable items that you use every day.
To organize, use trays, pots or hooks.
3- Choose the drainer well
The dishwasher drainer is another that takes up a lot of space on the countertop and can make it difficult to organize the kitchen.
The good news is that there are already several smaller and very practical models.
You can choose, for example, this version that is on top of the sink, saving space and helping to organize the kitchen sink.
4- Hang some items
Many people believe that due to the lack of cabinets, it is impossible to organize the kitchen.
And that is not true, after all, with creativity it is possible to overcome the lack of cabinets.

5- Hang the cups
The organization can also help decorate your kitchen.
If you have several cups, how about leaving them on display and organized?
You can build niches and shelves using pallets and include some hooks to hang the dishes.
6- Separate the plastic pots
Among the creative ideas to organize the kitchen, the care with plastic pots makes all the difference.
After all, they take up a lot of space and can make the furniture completely messy.
The tip, in this case, is to separate the lids and pots and create small compartments in the cabinet drawers (like the example in the image).
7- Invest in shelves and niches
Your small kitchen and you don’t have enough space to store everything you need?
The shelves and niches are great allies in those hours. Since they have no doors, they don’t weigh visually.
And at these locations, you can organize various items – and even decorate your kitchen.
8- Separate kitchen utensils
A very common question is how to organize the kitchen drawers.
That’s because utensils usually take up a lot of space and can all get messy.
If your drawer doesn’t have a separator, invest in these plastic boxes that you can find in any home utility store. Then just separate each item in its compartment.
9- Hang the cups inside the cupboard
Organizing the cabinets and the dishes are a real challenge.
When it’s time to leave the cups protected and organized, how about hanging them?
Just install hooks between the cabinet shelves.
10- Place the roasters and shapes vertically
When it comes to organizing the kitchen cabinet, the roasters and shapes are a challenge.
They take up space, are clumsy and have a difficult shape to stack.
One tip is to leave them vertical, like in the image.
11- Use labeled pots in the pantry
The pantry is a place that always gets messy, especially when it’s not visible, right?
To avoid this, the tip is to remove the products from their packaging and store them in transparent jars.
Remember to label correctly, indicating the product name and expiry date.
12- Use plastic baskets in the refrigerator
Your biggest difficulty is organizing the refrigerator?
Plastic baskets can help a lot.
Use them to separate the same foods, such as fruits, vegetables and others.
13- Enjoy all the spaces
Creativity is one of the main allies to organize a small kitchen.
Even if you spend little, it is possible to leave everything in order and well-functioning.
The inside of the cupboard door, for example, can be excellent for organizing small items.
14- Use the sink wisely
The messy sink is a big problem.
But in small kitchens, it is inevitable not to use it to organize some items.
If this is your case, use hooks and other supports to hang cutlery, spices, etc.
15- Hang the rollers
Have you noticed how many rolls of stuff we have in the kitchen?
Paper rolls, cloths, plastic bags, etc. To organize them, a cool idea is to use those supports that can be hung in the closet.
