Overhaul Your Drawers

Diamond Cabinet is thinking out side the cabinet,offering adish drawer called the Pegged Dish Organizer.The pegs can be rearranged to fit plates,bowls, cups,saucers, you name it. Kitchen Shelves is also a scattered brains panacea.Try the cut to fit spice drawer insert,for instance,that keeps spices easy to see without wasting space.

When in Doubt,Roll It Out

Go Upside Down

If you are overhauling your kitchen,consider turning it on its head.Designers are increasingly building pullout garbage drawers even with the countertop lip and setting a shallower drawer at the bottom,reversing traditional positions.One sweep of the sponge and all counter crud falls into the garbage,instead of on your tea towels.

Hide It

Island isnt just an island but an opportunity to stash more stuff.Merit Kitchens builds islands with curved end shelves,wine racks and even built in French style china cabinets.It also offers shelving with pullout wicker baskets,an idea that makes organizing both useful and artful.

Spin It

To banish the usual scatter of mismatched lids and containers,try Smart Spin Storage System.The12 inch square spinning base holds 24containers and lids of varying sizes. "You can put it in cabinets or on a lazy Susan" says Kathleen."I want to get another set and throw all my other containers away.

Let It Hang

Hidden isnt always synonymous with organized.Consider taking advantage of wasted airspace by hanging a pot rack akind of culinary chandelier.Ira Wood and Son,a Kentucky wholesaler, offers scads of pot racks from Cuisinart,John Boos, Enclume and others.John Boos PotTrak,for example,is a sleek set of three rectangular maple frames with aluminum hangers and spacers to hang pots, utensils or even baskets.Kathleen's solution is even simpler: She hangs ladles, strainers and long-handled forks in her window,interspersed with hanging bunches of herbs and peppers acurtain that still lets the sun in,she says.
