5 DIY Projects to Make 1 Super Organized Kitchen

Command™ Brand with Apartment Therapy

These little hacks will help make order of such a utilitarian space. The star here is Command™ Hooks. They're lifesavers in the kitchen, especially if yours is the type that whether by choice or necessity embraces the stuff-as-decor organization plan. That's why we're super excited about the Command™ Brand Homewares Collection, which takes organizing a few steps further. Designed to hold everything from brooms to dish soap and sponges, all of these hangers, hooks, and caddies are inexpensive and good-looking. Here are five easy projects you can finish in an afternoon, no nails needed.

Project #1: Scrub Brush Station

  • The point of this one is to rescue your scrub brush from its pool of gunk in a sink-side container. Get them up on the backsplash to air-dry with a couple Command™ Small Wire Hooks. The hooks work on tile and other surfaces — just make sure you're off the grout — so they're a simple but easy-to-install solution above a kitchen counter.

    (Almost all the Command™ Brand products install the same way, with adhesive strips that mount to the wall, then cleanly release when you're ready to take them down, so you won't damage walls.)

Project #2: Cleaning Supply Station

Project #3: Under-Sink Sponge & Soap Caddies

  • The best feature of the Command™ Sponge Caddy is the removable, washable drip tray. When you put wet sponges in it, the drain holes allow excess water to run out; the tray catches all the drippy mess then comes out for quick cleaning. Plus, when you pair it with the Command™ Under Sink Cabinet Caddy, it's easy to keep dish soaps and rubber gloves nearby and neatly organized.

Project #4: Wall-Mounted Spice Rack

  • This is actually the Command™ Quartz Picture Ledge repurposed as a spice rack. It holds up to five pounds, and the narrow shelf with a little lip is perfect for displaying glass spice jars. You can also get it in Slate. It's a simple, modern accessory that's a lot more affordable than a designer spice rack.

    For an added kick, keep things in line with Command™ Dry Erase Message Center. Jot down quick reminders or fun messages on the dry erase board.

Project #5: Pretty Pot Holder

  • One more use for the Command™ Small Wire Hooks: Put them up to hang pot holders near the stove. The hooks work on tile, paint, wood and other surfaces, as do the Command™ Spring Clips, which you can use to hold tea towels if you want to keep a couple by the sink.
