How to Organize Very Narrow Kitchen Cabinets
Keep narrow cabinets organized in your kitchen by installing items that make the utensils and equipment you need accessible. A thin, deep cabinet can seem like nothing but a problem, but if you put the right tools in it, you can turn the cabinet into a useful storage space, where you can stash items that previously did not have a home. Before you begin organizing, get rid of any tools or gadgets you haven't used within a year, or any duplicate items.
Store bottles of oil or vinegar on a lazy Susan in a narrow cabinet. If your cabinet is particularly tall, make use of the wasted space above by using a double decker lazy Susan.
Store cooking magazines or cookbooks in the narrow cabinet. Use paper or wooden magazine holders to hold the magazines upright. When you want to pull out a magazine or book, simply slide the magazine holder out of the cabinet.
Install a pull-out pantry shelf. The pull-out shelf allows you to make use of the cabinet's depth without having to remove every item to get to those in the back. Use a tiered shelf to make the most use of the space.
Keep your bakeware, including your cookie sheets, orderly by installing a bakeware rack. You can also use the rack to store flat kitchen equipment like cutting boards.
