The Best Upper Cabinet Storage Ideas for Kitchens
How to Organize Upper Cabinets
The idea with upper wall cabinet storage solutions is to make it more accessible. Most of you probably have glassware, plates, bowls or maybe your go-to coffee mugs in these cabinets.
- Heavy items on lower shelfs
- Everyday items need to be accessible
There are also items like baking sheets, prescription medicines, spices and herbs or items that just don’t fit in the pantry cabinet.
There’s tons of options out there to help you organize the upper cabinet space. When you actually do a deep dive into all the storage organizer options for upper wall cabinets you might start getting a little overwhelmed. We know, it’s easy to do. Everything from thousand dollar swing-out pantry products to pull down shelving to simple fifteen dollar plate organizers, you can go as crazy or conservative as you want.
Wall Cabinet Dimensions
As we often suggest when discussing products, make sure you examine both the product dimensions and cabinet dimensions to verify it will work properly. Here’s some basic cabinet terminology or Cabinetry 101 if need be.
Most standard upper wall kitchen cabinets will have a 12″ depth and widths of 12″, 15″, 18″, 24″, 30″ and 36″. Your cabinets could vary.
Our take away…
When it comes to storage organization, it can become more about the installation process and what you feel most comfortable with. Some items will be more complicated while others simply sit inside your cabinet.
Want the most bang for your buck? Try the baking sheet and tray divider rails. These are easy to install and can be used just about anywhere.
The wine bottle storage racks are also a simple idea to gain more space, but I would recommend looking for a pull out that makes it easy to access certain items.
Check out the Lynk Professional Spice Rack Slide Outs. If you have the room, this can be super helpful when looking for spices, cooking oils, etc.
