Aside from putting your tableware on display, you can also create a cooking cheat sheet


From the multitude of ideas we've featured, we learned that nothing beats having a clean and organized kitchen. After all, a tidy space where everything is in order is very important—especially if we want to work efficiently.

To add to our list of kitchen hacks, here are four more creative ideas that you can try.

Hooks for measuring cups

When cooking, some of us find it hard to locate tiny utensils and essentials like measuring spoons and cups. Save on time and energy by placing them where you can easily spot them! Install hooks inside your cabinets as seen in the photo. Aside from measuring spoons and cups, you may also hang your short ladles here.

Measuring cheat sheet

Having trouble with conversions and measurements? Convert a cabinet door into a blackboard cheat sheet for common measurements! You may pair this project with the first kitchen hack as you can align and hang measuring essentials inside the cabinet as well. 

RL Tip: Aside from writing down measurements, you may also use this part of the cabinet as a memo board to take note of the week's menu or current pantry supplies. This will help you track which items you need to buy the next time you visit the supermarket.

Install open shelves above the sink

Even if you don't have cabinets in the kitchen, you can still keep your plates and dining essentials organized by installing open shelves. Choose a sturdy piece that can hold even heavy ceramic pieces. 

RL Tip: You may opt to put the ones you seldom use on the highest layer. If you don't have space where you can leave plates and glasses to dry, reserve the lowest layer for this purpose. To maximize your shelf, you may also add hooks below where you can hang ladles, graters, and other cooking utensils.

Install racks for your canned goods

If you always make sure that you have enough pantry supplies, chances are—you might have problems storing them in a small kitchen cabinet. To deal with this challenge, you may use closet racks! This project allows you to see each label at a glance, too!
