As the home of appliances, cookware and every specialty gadget under the sun, the kitchen is and always will be a perplexing place to organize. The never-ending accessories and endless food cans, boxes and bags easily fill up every nook and cranny, especially in a not-so-big kitchen.
Houzz users have been finding and creating innovative organization techniques to help solve their kitchen dilemmas, from storing pots and pans to organizing a messy walk-in pantry. The favorite solutions below, pulled from our list of most popular photos on Houzz, have been added to tens (and in some cases hundreds) of thousands of users’ ideabooks. See if one of them will inspire an idea for your own kitchen.
1. Custom pantry. More than any other storage solution, Houzzers dream of a perfectly organized walk-in pantry. More than 410,000 users have saved this photo to their ideabooks, thanks to its pullout baskets, pocket doors and abundant shelf space.
“People love pantries because they house everything all in one place,” says storage designerMarie Newton, who designed this pantry. “You can see it all, so you don’t end up buying something you already have.”
2. Corner drawer. Ingenious corner drawers are a creative solution for awkward corners, which is why 250,000 Houzzers saved this photo. The drawers run diagonally into the corner, which makes them deeper than most and therefore lets them pack a bigger storage punch.
3. Utensil drawer. This clever utensil built-in keeps serveware and silverware conveniently in check. Added to more than 230,000 ideabooks, this image is one of the most popular on Houzz. If you want the look but can’t afford custom, take the DIY route by placing stainless steel pots in a deep, empty drawer.
