One of the reasons why we bought this house was the size of the kitchen. There is so much space and storage. I was sold because I love to bake and cook. And then when we had the cabinets refaced and extended to the ceiling, we gained even more storage space. This means that I can have a cabinet dedicated to the baking supplies I use most often.
A few weeks ago, I decided to organize my main baking cabinet which houses my measuring cups, measuring spoons, mixing bowls, KitchenAid mixer attachments, and other baking-related items.
Here’s what I was working with before. It was okay, but I wasn’t taking full advantage of the vertical space in the cabinet.
I initially set up the cabinet like in the photo below, with the measuring cups, spoons, and one of my KitchenAid mixer paddles on the doors. But every time I opened a door, the cups or spoons would clank against the door and scare the crap out of me, causing a curse word or two to flow out of my mouth.
So I made the executive decision to change the set up. And it was super easy because the Command™ Brand products I used are easy to remove and reapply.
If you’d like to recreate this in your home, follow the easy steps below.
Grab your baking essentials such as measuring spoons, cups, lightweight mixers and whisks, as well as your Command™ Brand products. Determine which cabinet you want to create your organized baker set-up and follow all surface prep instructions on the back of the packaging.
Following package instructions, mount one Command™ Quartz Key Rail to the inside of the cabinet. Repeat to mount additional key rails in the cabinet.
I used three key rails across the top of the bottom section.
Following package instructions, apply one Command™ Medium Clear Hook to the inside of the cabinet. Repeat to apply additional clear hooks on the sides of the cabinet. I used one on each side– two on the bottom and two on the top.
Hang sets of measuring spoons and cups on the key rails, and use the clear hooks to hold plastic mixers, tools, whisks and more.
In order to get the measuring cups to fit nicely, I cupped the 1/2 cups and 1/3 cups together.
Don’t ask why I need four sets of measuring spoons. I just do.
My magnetic measuring spoons that I use to fit into small openings can’t be hung so I set them on the cabinet shelf.
Organizing this cabinet and putting up all the Command™ Brand products took less than 30 minutes so this is a very doable project for anyone.
