When we were doing our kitchen, we looked through those and picked up some elements to copy. I use a rack and clean/store my knives as soon after use as possible, and they now go a long time without resharpening. Go here now.
Putting knives on a magnetic bar will dull them quickly as nicks and dents will accumulate when a knife is removed and replaced. As the reader, you assume any risks involved when completing projects seen on this site. No two homes or two spaces are considered the same.

I would love to organize this cabinet with maybe some shelves. My sink sits kind of at an angle that gives me a corner cabinet above my sink where right now I have my bigger corning ware like for casseroles and lids as well as some tupperware containers that I can freeze food in and then also use to microwave. Are the specifically made for the freezer storage?I have used just plastic bins from dollar store in past and they break and become real brittle in no time.
I am working on it. I am wondering about the containers you use for the freezer. I am thinking of a perfect place; on top shelf above the Corning ware dishes. I could move the clear glass dessert dishes elsewhere.
Would make it easier to unload from the dishwasher. I am hesitate because those shelves are glass, and the only way I’d store the mugs there is if I placed some type of shelf liner that would act as a cushion for the glass shelves. Maybe I should switch the clear glass dessert dishes with the mugs and store them above the drinking glassware.
The mugs go in same cabinet with everyday Corning ware..the good china is in deep cabinet above the refrigerator. Another matching lazy susan is to the right of the stove but that could be used more efficiently, plus there is another lazy susan in an upper cabinet that is not being used efficiently. Will see if there is room for it. I keep my baking pans and muffin tins,etc.
I just looked and there is a nice pasta bowl that I don’t use often that can be stored in the large garage cabinets. The ones to the left of the stove are used for pots/pans,frying pans, crock pot, pressure cooker, and my stainless mixing bowls. We have less space but everything is all on one level.
I miss that but don’t miss going up/down the 13 stairs a million times a day. We downsized in 2005 and storage space is lacking. Our pantry has pull-out drawers and I don’t have enough space for everything.
You can see ahead of time basically what is supposed to be in them. Before we had a wine cellar, we just stored our wine in the unfinished cool basement. I take it you aren’t big drinkers from what you said, but if you have it sitting up there for months it is going to ruin it when you do end up serving it. I know most people store wine in their kitchens (generally the warmest room in the house), though.
That is the worst place to store it, since heat affects wine. One tip, though…don’t store your wine above the stove. I would LOVE to know about your pretty paper in your drawers.
Second, love the idea of putting an organizer on my pantry door.
