Here are some organization tips to help clear space on your countertops:

  • Mount a magnetic strip on the backsplash or the side of a cabinet to hold knives.
  • Mount a long towel bar on the backsplash behind the stove and hang a series of S-hooks on it to hold utensils.
  • Use a steel tool storage unit for kitchen storage for placemats, take-out-menus, and silverware.
  • Use a pot rack whenever possible. If ceilings are low hang pots on the wall with simple screw-in cup hooks.
  • Use metal swing-out racks in a base corner kitchen cabinet for easy access.
  • Use a narrow console table that has shelves as an island for those large pots, pans, and bowls
