Is it just me, or does it feel like there is always something new that needs organizing in the kitchen area? In our house, we have a very limited amount of cabinet space & a whole lot of stuff that needs storing! I’ve already talked about how we save space using magnetic hooks and a wall-mounted knife rack, and I revealed a few of my favorite cabinet storage tips in my first Cabinet Storage 101 post. Today, we will tackle another little area: drinkware. All class. All glass. That’s just how we roll.
Wine & Dine:
Like a box of fine wine, our stemware storage is cheap & simple. We use one side of an under-cabinet stemware rack for our wine glasses, and I added S hook shower hooks to the other half of the rack to organize our coffee mugs. Easiest double duty storage hack EVER!
I like using a two-tiered Lazy Susan turntable to store our regular drinking glasses. The extra shelf helps take advantage of vertical storage space, and the turntable allows me to actually reach the items up top since I can easily spin it & bring any item to the front.
True, it doesn’t take advantage of as much space as a cabinet shelf, but it definitely makes everything more accessible than a normal shelf. (If I had to reach the back of the cabinet, I’d need to use my folding step stool every time I got a little thirsty!)
Oh, and yes, I totally use a cabinet shelf to separate my dishes. It’s so nice being able to store everything in one place without having to lift the little plates off the big plates to use them! (Sometimes the smallest things make me so happy — you know I love using those cabinet shelves for everything!)
How do you maximize your kitchen cabinet storage?
