DIY Kitchen Cabinet Organization

I’m a bit of a neat freak, so I get excited over little things like a neatly-organized pantry or perfectly arranged closet.  Naturally, our cluttered kitchen cabinets bothered me.  I wanted to organize them more so I didn’t have to break my back trying to find which skillet to use.

To save the day, Evan found these “Rev-a-Shelf” kits at Lowe’s.  They’re pretty pricey, but we decided it was worth it to splurge.  We bought three kits — two for both cabinets that housed our pots and pans, and one larger one to remedy the disaster zone existing in our kitchen island.  These kits are available in all shapes and sizes, and we just had to ensure we bought the right kit to fit each of our cabinets.
The actual assembly and installation of the kits was rather simple.  It took about 20 minutes to fully install each one.  First, you assemble the frame per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Once done, stick it in the cabinet.  The frame will be fastened on one side, bottom, and back of the cabinet to fully secure it.

We first used a drill to create pilot holes for the screws. Then, we fastened the shelf kit to one side of the cabinet door frame with those screws.

We followed the same process to secure the bottom and back of the frame to the cabinet.
Once everything was secure, now it was time to slide the pre-assembled drawers onto each row. 

That’s it!  A completely organized cabinet.  My heart was so pleased with the result.

Each drawer can be pulled completely out of the cabinet so that you have full access to your cookware.  Here’s what our pan and skillet cabinet looks like:

And here’s our pot and sauce pan cabinet:
The drawers themselves slide easily and smoothly with little to no effort involved.

I’m in love with these kits, and highly recommend them!  They’ve doubled the amount of cabinet space in our kitchen.  Now everything is easily accessible, too!
