It’s the center of our homes, the place where we spend the most time, where we feed our families, and the room that guests always gather in when we entertain. For those reasons plus more, it’s essential that the kitchen in our home works for us, with us, and nurtures our inner chef. An organized kitchen is just what we need to make all the parts of mealtime work together. Knowing where each item is and having a system in place that helps, rather than hinders, is essential to keeping the household going and mealtime enjoyable.

Kitchen Organization Alleviates Stress

Planning meals day in and day out is a labor of love many can relate to. Throw in picky eaters, a packed schedule, and a jumbled mess in your kitchen, and you’re in for another level of stress. Taryn Cawyer and Katy Richardson, expert organizers and owners of Simply Home in Birmingham, Alabama, know exactly how that feels.  “Having to dig for your favorite spatula, unpack a stuffed cabinet looking for that perfect pot to boil water in, or look for that specific spice you need (then end up finding four of them, three of which are expired) can be incredibly stressful and time consuming,” Cawyer says, Fortunately, there are organizational tools that can help.

“An organized kitchen is important because it can really streamline those high stress moments,” Richardson says. Organization is key in the kitchen. If a good cook is only as good as their tools, then an organized kitchen is essential to grabbing the tool we need in a second’s notice.

Clear Out The Clutter

Cawyer and Richardson’s number one tip is to streamline what is kept in the kitchen and only keep your best or favorite items. “You just don't need eight spatulas, you know the one you always grab and that’s best for the job, so consider donating the rest,” they say.

Less is sometimes so much more. By clearing away the items that go unused and incorporating a clear system of organization, your kitchen will become less chaotic and more user-friendly, which is what we all need and love in our household kitchens.

Here are 10 kitchen organizers that will ensure every cabinet stays organized so you can maximize every inch of space:
