Kitchen storage seems to be a never-ending topic of discussion amongst renters and homeowners alike. It seems that no cooking area is properly built to withstand the amount of items that we try to shove into it! Luckily, there are some great kitchen hacks that are low-cost and easy to execute. Today, we’ve got one for you that requires only hooks and hangers!
If you’ve been searching for a way to keep your cabinet space organized, then look no further! This DIY project will help you keep the lids to your pots and pans both orderly and secure.
As we said, this job is super simple to complete—in fact, if you have children, this is a great opportunity to include them in the build.
All you will need are four damage-free stick-on hooks and two plastic hangers per standard-sized cabinet door. You may use more or less depending upon the height of your cupboards. We recommend going for the sturdier metal ones for this particular task. They cost a few dollars more, but they tend to last longer and look sleeker than their plastic counterparts.
Fasten the hooks
For the first step, you will simply attach the first two hooks to the inside of the cabinet door. Before applying, be sure that your surface is dry and wiped clean. It’s best to place the first two hooks about 4 inches from the top with an equal amount of distance in between, like so.
Attach the plastic hanger
Turn the plastic hanger upside down and slide it over the two hooks. The underside should fit very snugly onto the top of the metal divots.
Create a second tier
Apply the next two hooks about two inches below the bottom of the top hanger. These hooks should be placed so that they line up directly beneath the upper two. Be sure that you place these about 4 inches from the bottom edge of the door.
Secure the second hanger
Repeat Step 2 using the bottom hooks.
Slide in the lids
Take your first pot lid (this one should be a bit larger size than the rest) and slide it behind the top plastic hanger. The handle should fit just above the horizontal end. Next, you can take a smaller pot top and slide it in front of the larger, top one. The small one should fit comfortably into the triangular part of the hanger. Repeat this process using the bottom hanger.
Pretty nifty, huh?
