Learn how to organise your cutlery cabinet at home
Organising your cutlery is one of those tasks that are high on our home to-do lists, but we can never seem to get around to it, in reality. That’s because most of us don’t know where to start.
Here’s our checklist of tools that will help in organizing your cutlery in the kitchen cabinet in an efficient, organized way:
1. Drawer Trays: Trays are available in all shapes, sizes and materials and are helpful in keeping your kitchen drawer organized. Plastic
trays work better since wood and moisture don’t go well together. Use trays with compartments to be able to separate cutlery by
size and use.
2. Inner mat for Drawers: Besides drawers, a roll of plastic available as a thin mat works very well to line your kitchen drawers. These
are available at your local kitchenware store and can be cut according to the shape of your drawer.
3. Containers: Besides keeping your cutlery in kitchen drawers, there are always pieces that you need on a daily basis which need to be
in proximity to your kitchen work area. Consider old school aluminium containers and vintage jars with slots on the base (to allow
water to drain out) as a chic way to store your cutlery.
4. Kitchen Pegboard: A kitchen pegboard is a useful accessory in the kitchen to organise cutlery and utensils that you use everyday.

5. Magnetic Strips: For kitchen cutlery like knives, a magnetic strip fixed on the wall works well to organise them at a useful distance.
