Modern kitchen with lots of storageWe know keeping your kitchen organized can be an ongoing challenge. To help you out, we’ve put together some of the most common kitchen storage dilemmas and our tips on how to solve them!

Pots and pans

Pots and pans are some of the toughest things to find room for in your kitchen. They vary in size and shape, don’t always stack neatly, and take up a lot of room. And that’s not even taking into account the lids! Needless to say, many homeowners struggle with how to store their cookware collection. If you’re considering a major kitchen renovation in the near future, the ideal solution would be custom pantry drawers specifically built to store cookware and lids. At Closet & Storage Concepts of Denver, we can custom design a pantry that fits all your storage needs! If you are looking for a smaller scale solution, consider a hanging pot rack that attaches to the ceiling or walls in your kitchen. There are also special racks and pantry inserts you can purchase that are designed to keep lids organized.


Keeping your spice collection organized can also be a challenge. Over time, it’s easy to accumulate a large collection of spices that take up valuable pantry space. Not only that, but if your spice shelf isn’t well organized you’ll end up wasting a lot of time searching for what you need. Invest in a rotating spice rack or shelf (similar to a Lazy Susan) to make accessing your spices easy. A door rack is also a great way to store spices because it frees up shelf space and makes your spice collection super-accessible.

Food storage containers

Similar to pots and pans, reusable food storage containers can be a storage and organization nightmare. Different brands come in different sizes and shapes, some nest together, some don’t. And we’ve all been there: you open the top shelf where you store your containers and they all come tumbling out on top of you. If it’s time to replace some of your containers anyway, consider investing in a matching set that fits together. For your existing containers, pull everything out and spend some time organizing them by shape and size. Store smaller containers in larger, similarly shaped ones to save space. Dedicate one container to holding all the lids, so they’re organized and easily accessible.
