30 DIY Storage Solutions to Keep the Kitchen Organized {Saturday Inspiration & Ideas}

Spring cleaning always has me thinking about reorganizing and decluttering each and every room as I work my way throughout the house. It always amazes me just how much stuff can accumulate in just a year. I usually take the opportunity to evaluate just where we are and if there are any changes that can be made to make life a little simpler, more convenient, and of course more organized.
One space that never lets me down is the kitchen. There are always new clever ideas that not only make day to day tasks a bit easier by saving time – but save desired space as well.
This week’s Inspiration and Ideas highlights thirty of those clever ideas – and the best part is most of them are easy do-it-yourself projects that can be completed
 with a simple trip to your local hardware store.

  18. I have seen the first idea thru better homes and gardens but I have yet to find what they used or where to get it. Such a tease….as this is perfect for my new kitchen! In all of your research have you learned where to get any of the materials to make it???

    • Hi Sarah – Unfortunately BHG just highlights this idea on the link mentioned above. I have look around but have not been able to find a step by step or suggested company that may carry something pre-fabricated.

      The shelving could be easily replicated – though if anyone has any suggestions on finding the storage boxes please do share….
