10 Photos of Hyper-Organized Kitchens That’ll Make You Swoon!

October 14, 2017

Strategies tidy homeowners use (like color) to make things look pretty.

Some people have a special knack for making everything seem so put-together in their kitchen, so prettily organized — without buying expensive things.

How do they do it?

They Put ‘Like’ and ‘Like’ Together:

Like goes with like, whether it’s a similar shape or a similar function. In the case above, it’s both. Lids are together, organized by shape. The bottoms are together, also organized by shape. And see how the colors are grouped? So satisfying.

They Use Color to Help Them Organize:

Green glasses go on top…

Blue plates go on the bottom…

Brown mugs go on the right…

Color makes things pretty. By putting like-colors together, you create a sense of order and a way of mentally picturing where something is.

Plus, it makes a large pantry look put-together.

Like [a] mint green and gold one:

Or [a] black and white one:

Black and white is probably the most flexible color scheme. In the pantry above, the white pulls together the different canister shapes. The black wire baskets tie into the color scheme to help “tidy” the chaos that is supermarket food.

They Use a Grid:

Whether it’s easy to see or not.

They Use Clear, Same-Shape Containers for Staples:

Makes it easy to see what you have, and how much. Time saved.

They Use Consistent Labeling:

Imagine how much messier that drawer would look if the labels and jars were all different shapes, sizes, and colors. (Now only if they were alphabetized…).

But it’s [the] fridge… And [the] freezer drawers.

…that have us swooning.

Shape, function, containers, grid, and the color (wow!). Makes you want to clean out your fridge now.
