Easily Organizing Kitchen Countertops

Do you feel like your kitchen is constantly cluttered and messy? If so, don’t worry – you’re not alone! A lot of people have trouble organizing kitchen countertops. But the good news is that there are plenty of ways to do it using things you already have.

This article will discuss organizing a kitchen counter using pegboards, cake stands, trays, shutters, magnets, and various utensil containers. So, read on for some helpful tips!

Start by sorting

Start by sorting through everything on your countertops. Decide what needs to be there and what can be stored elsewhere.

Frequency of use

Look closely at what is sitting on your counters. Have you used the item in the last couple of weeks? If not, is there somewhere else you can store it? Move these items into the cupboards or a storage area. Reminder: never store heavy items in top cupboards.

Broken items

Is something broken and has been that way for a while? Either put it in the ‘repair’ box and purchase the necessary parts to fix it, or toss it. You probably never will if you haven’t fixed or used it for this amount of time.

Sentimental items

Are you hanging on to a gift you don’t use? Be generous and donate the item to a charity.

Organize your items into groups.

  • put like items together. For example, group your spices together,
  • put items you use to do similar tasks for example, put all your baking supplies in one spot,
  • and put items close to the areas used. For example, oils and seasoning are placed near the stove.


Remove everything from your counters and give them a thorough cleaning. This means taking everything off the countertops, including items typically left out, like canisters and vases, and giving them a good wipe-down. Don’t forget to clean the splashback and appliances, too.

By taking everything off the counter and giving it a good cleaning, you’re starting with a clean slate and making it easier to keep things tidy in the future. Plus, it’ll definitely make your kitchen look brighter and more inviting.

Corralling Items

One of the best ways to create more space on your kitchen countertops is to corral items together. This can be done by organizing items together and using containers to hold them in place. For example, if you have a lot of small appliances, you can group them together on one side of the counter. Or, if you often use herbs and spices while cooking, you can keep them in a designated container near the stove.

By keeping things organized and contained, you can free up valuable counter space. In addition, it will be easier to find what you need when everything has its own place. So, next time you organize kitchen countertops, take some time to corral items together and reclaim your space.

Pedestal cake stand

Cake stands can be used to organize a variety of things.

  • store dishwashing supplies: brush, dish soap, and hand sanitizer near the sink.
  • coffee station: powder-creams, sugar, spoons, etc. Place mugs around the bottom of the stand.
  • seasoning items near the stove: oils, salt, pepper, etc.
  • organize your spices and herbs

Shutters can also be used to organize your kitchen counters. Shutters can hang pots, pans, knives, utensils, and even spices. This is a great way to free up space on your countertops.

Utensil containers

What you can use to corral your utensils such as spatulas, whips, and ladles.

  • crocks
  • pitchers
  • hurricane candle holder
  • painted boxes
  • cans
  • flower pots


Using a curtain rod instead of a bunch of individual hooks reduces the number of holes created in your backsplash. You can hang the rod under the cabinet and avoid all holes in the wall.

What can you hang:

  • hot pads
  • baskets
  • pails
  • small metal baskets
  • utensils
  • small wall hanging shelf or basket-you can store dish towels, utensils, cookie cutters, etc. in the hung containers.


Use a tray whenever you have to group items for quick counter cleaning. Items you can use for trays:

  • small pizza pan
  • small jelly roll pan
  • Low-sided wooden tray
  • ceramic tray
  • low sided baskets

Trays can store various items, including cups, plates, bowls, and silverware. They are also great for organizing spices and herbs.


Use magnets to attach lightweight items to a metal strip attached to the wall or under cabinets, or you can use the side of the refrigerator. These magnets will usually not stick to stainless steel. Glue a magnet to spice jars, small baskets, cake decorating sprinkles, etc., and attach it to the metal strip.


Don’t forget pegboards. They’re always useful when organizing. You can use them to hang pots and pans, knives, utensils, and even spice shelves. This is a great way to free up space on your countertops.

More ideas:

  • use a paper towel holder to slip cookie cutters on
  • fill a container with wooden skewers to store knives
  • Install coffee makers, microwaves, blenders, etc., under the cabinet.
  • don’t forget the end of your cabinets-hang baskets, a rod, or use hooks for items
