Here at Infarrantly Creative, I’ve been busy showing you how I utilized the space on the inside of cabinet doors to better organize my own kitchen. As it turns out, that empty space on the inside of my doors had amazing hidden potential! When you stop to consider the square footage of level, usable space on the interior of your cupboard doors, you can start to envision new possibilities for controlling kitchen clutter. I’ve found a wealth of ideas for taking advantage of both sides of your cabinetry that I can’t wait to show you in this installment of 5 Ways Saturdays.
1. Measuring Helps
I turned an unused surface in my kitchen into functional space when I organized all my measuring cups and spoons. Now, instead of digging through a cluttered drawer to find them, I have a designated spot for each of them. Along with a handy conversion chart, everything I need for measuring in my kitchen is now extremely accessible.
2. Magnetic Containers
Over at I Heart Organizing, Jen found a way to magnetize the back of her cupboard doorsso that she could attach small magnetic containers to them. Now Jen’s spices are easy to see and easy to reach, and Jen has cut down on clutter inside her cabinetry, too.
3. Bathroom Clutter Busters
Kitchen aren’t the only rooms with additional storage options behind their doors. Bathrooms are always in need of a way to control the chaos, too. I’m not the only one with a tangle of corded appliances in the bathroom, right? The Family Handyman offers a great behind-the-scenes storage solution for that. Check out these DIY PVC pipe curling iron holsters.
4. Hidden Message Board
Switching the my measuring conversion chart from the front of my fridge to the inside of my cabinet has cleared a little space on the refrigerator door. I can have a completely pristine fridge front if I copy this great idea from Young House Love. They covered the inside of their cabinets with cork for an instant, hidden message center.
