It’s officially my favorite time of year! The trees are turning red and yellow, the holidays are approaching, and I just feel the need to have a hot drink in hand at all times. I also feel the need to get a little more organized, perhaps because life gets so busy this time of year.
Plus, the kitchen gets a lot of use during the holidays, so it’s a great time to streamline and get organized – so you’ll have a little extra time to sip those hot drinks! So today I’m sharing a quick kitchen organization idea you may not have thought of, as well as a few other kitchen organization hacks to make life a little easier.
We are about 80% done with our DIY kitchen reno, and yes, it’s taking forever. One thing I added during the renovation for extra convenience is a towel bar right below the kitchen sink. I’ve always hated the way those fake drawers under the sink look, since they usually don’t have hardware attached. So I decided to put a bar there for hanging towels, that way
my husband we don’t drip water across my freshly installed floor reaching for a hand towel.
I was a little worried it would get in the way when standing at the sink but it really doesn’t. I used an Ikea towel bar I’ve had for quite a few years, similar to this one. I can’t find the exact one I have, but they sell several different styles and sizes of towel rails.
If you’d like to incorporate this idea into your kitchen, the most important thing is that you buy a rail that fits your cabinet, so make sure to measure before you buy. Then just center the rail on the drawer face, mark and predrill the holes, and attach with screws. What could be easier?
Enjoy your new handy-dandy towel bar!
Here’s a few other handy kitchen hacks to help you out this season:
1. DIY Charging station from Polka Dots in the City. This is so cute and such a great idea. Here’s what you need to make this charging station:rail with hooks, Flatware Caddies, and the wire basket with handle.
2. I love this simple DIY trashbag organization from Simply Organized. Just a set of wall brackets and a wood dowel. You can tighten the screw on the brackets to keep the dowel from coming out when in use.
3. And how about this idea from Ask Anna for storing those rolls of foil, etc- pretty clever, huh?
4. The ladies over at Made From Pinterest used a tension rod to organize underneath the kitchen sink. It doubles the storage space, and all the bottles are up front and easy to access!
