Choosing the Right Kitchen Drawer Organizers

Some of our favorite drawer storage solutions

by Brad

Kitchen drawers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are wide, some are narrow, some are deep, and some are shallow, so there's not really a "one-size-fits-all" option for every situation. (Not to mention the nearly endless combination of cutlery and utensils one can store in a kitchen drawer!) Though it can be a little tricky to find the best fit, with a little bit of measuring and planning you can have your drawers in tip-top shape in a matter of minutes,

To help you get started, here are a few of our customers' favorite options:

iDesign Linus Shallow Drawer Organizers

For drawers that aren't particularly deep (around 2"), our iDesign Linus Shallow Drawer Organizers might be a good choice. Molded from clear, virtually unbreakable Resipreme plastic, they featured textured bottoms that help keep them in place and come in a variety of sizes. They can also be hand-washed when needed, making them very easy to keep clean.

*We also offer these organizers as starter kits in several sizes: 6" x 18", 9" x 18", 9" x 30", 12" x 18", 18" x 21", and 21" x 30".

Everything Drawer Organizers

Another option for shallower drawers is our Everything Drawer Organizers. These handy bins are made of clear, durable plastic and feature curved interiors for easy cleaning. Plus, these organizers also have squared corners, allowing them to fit tightly together in a drawer, eliminating gaps.

*Also available in starter sets of four (9" x 18") and five (18" x 18").

Bamboo Drawer Organizers

For those looking for a more "natural" look, we recommend the Bamboo Drawer Organizers. They're easily stackable--making them great for deeper drawers--and handsomely constructed from bamboo with a MDF (medium-density fiberboard) bottom. And because bamboo is an easily-renewable resource, they're environmentally-friendly too!

If you'd prefer an adjustable tray with multiple compartments instead of individual bins, we also offer an Expandable Bamboo Flatware Tray and Utensil Tray. The left and right sections slide out to adjust to the width of your drawer, allowing them to expand from 13" to 23" wide for an all-in-one solution.

*These are also available as starter kits in three sizes: 6" x 18", 9" x 18", and 12" x 18".

Silver Mesh Drawer Organizers

If you prefer a more sleek, modern feel, our Silver Mesh Drawer Organizers are an attractive option that look great not only in kitchens, but in offices and craft rooms as well. These modular bins are similar in size to the Linus and Everything Organizers (2" tall), but are constructed from durable, epoxy-coated steel wire mesh.

*Also available in these starter kits sizes: 6" x 18", 9" x 18", and 12" x 18".

Joseph Joseph DrawerStore Cutlery Organizers

For particularly narrow drawers, Joseph Joseph comes to the rescue! At only 4-3/8" wide, their DrawerStore Cutlery Organizers sport a clever design that allows you to fit as many knives, forks, and spoons as possible into a very small space. Constructed from durable grey plastic and featuring non-slip feet, these organizers come in two different sizes. (Plus, if you also need to store your steak knives in a narrow space, Joseph Joseph also offers a Knife Organizer!)
