But sometimes the look of your home just isn’t enough- sometimes you simply need more space and additional storage to make your kitchen organized and functional. That’s why we are going inside the cabinets this time- sharing some of the best tips, tricks and DIY hacks so you can get the most out of your cabinet space.

1. Paint the Inside of Your Cabinet Door with Chalkboard Paint and have a Built-in Grocery List.

This tip is so easy and effective. You can find chalkboard paint (or spray paint) in almost any craft store. Simply apply two coats to your surface and you’re ready to go! It’s great for grocery lists, memos, reminders.. The list goes on (literally).

2. DIY Dish Rack

This project is great for plates of course, but it would also be a fantastic way to store cookie sheets, cutting boards, and serving trays. All you really need is a few dowels (both square and round, measured to size) and wood glue! And while there are quite a few steps to making your own, the additional storage it adds and the money you save is well worth the little extra elbow grease. You can find a full DIY tutorial here:

3. Interior Spice Rack Shelving

Storing spices on the interior side of your cabinet door versus displaying a stationary spice rack is a big space-saver for anyone who seasons their food with something other than salt and pepper. Why waste valuable space when you could have a bunch of tiny little bottles blend in seamlessly with your cabinet door? Plus it’s as easy as getting a few photo shelves and using wood glue to attach them.

4. Wine Rack to Store Water Bottles

How many of us have dedicated a whole cabinet to our on-the-go plastic containers? Our tupperware never truly stays stacked and our bottles seems to get knocked over as soon as we put our hands near them. But there’s a perfect solution we wish we would have thought of sooner – a wine rack! Who says that a wine rack can only store wine? This storage device is perfect for storing everything, from your Yeti canteen to your glass travel cup. Plus it actually stacks your bottles for maximum space and utility!

5. DIY Pull-Out Trash Cabinet

Here is another super simple DIY project that will keep you more organized and just might be the most convenient hack around! The trash can is truly essential to any kitchen and yet it always seems to be in the way. So what better way to conceal it, than to give your trashcan it’s own space? All you need is a cabinet and an extra drawer to reconstruct into your trash can frame work. With just a few simple nuts and bolts, you will have a genuine pull out trash can – and it didn’t cost you hundreds of dollars to purchase! You can found a fully DIY tutorial here:

There are so many ways to utilize your kitchen space to its fullest potential, we couldn’t fit them all in one blog. However, these are some of our favorite hacks that will help you kick off the new year and have your kitchen ready just in time for spring cleaning.
