A stunning kitchen remodel isn’t going to look good with random kitchen cabinets and ingredients running across the counter. And if you live in an apartment, the organization of the kitchen is of the utmost importance. Make sure your kitchen is properly organized so that you can get the most out of your kitchen remodel. Our senior designers have these tips for improving kitchen organization.
Risers and shelves
If your closet space is limited, consider installing risers. Not only is it easier to pull out crockery, pots and pans, but it also helps you make the most of the valuable storage space.

Not everything in your kitchen has to be kept behind closed doors. Exquisite glassware and other kitchen items deserve to be in the spotlight. Set up trays, baskets, and bowls throughout the kitchen to keep your countertops neat and neat. In this luxury San Francisco apartment, we placed a cocktail tray on the marble island for a convenient and portable storage solution.
One of our most popular trends in kitchen organization is cork boards. Not only do they look great in a rustic, chic space, but they are also a flexible and practical storage solution. If you’re looking for a fun DIY project for a weekend, put some cork board on the back of your cabinets so you can hang measuring cups and other bells and whistles.

Every nook and cranny
Make sure you take advantage of all the rough edges available to get the most out of your space. In this rustic, chic Hoboken apartment, we placed a series of numbered wooden boxes on top of the cabinets. It’s perfect for stowing beloved gadgets that are rarely used, such as crockpots and deep fryers.
You may not be making full use of your closets. Make those hard-to-reach places a little more accessible with some pull-out cabinets.

Open and closed storage
When organizing your kitchen, try to strike a balance between open and closed storage solutions. Handmade and unique pieces deserve to be displayed even when not in use. However, closed storage is also important. Sometimes it is best when your great-aunt’s pot is not visible.
Even the most passionate minimalists have a garbage drawer somewhere in their home. If you want to get the most out of your drawers, consider a number of drawer dividers. We are part of this expandable bamboo bowl from Crate & Barrel. It’s designed for cutlery but is perfect for trash drawers anywhere.

Whether you need to expand your kitchen island or just need space for a drink, a trolley can be a great addition to your kitchen. In this chic, rustic loft with a view of Union Square, we have moved into a bar cart made of reclaimed wood that can easily be rolled out for entertainment.
