DIY kitchen organization ideas

How to organize your kitchen on a budget with quick and easy DIY ideas. Even if you’re renting, you’ll see that you’re not stuck with your less than ideal kitchen!

Here are some of the things that I mention in the video:

Spice storage:

Magnetic spice containers
Magnetic spice rack with wall mount

Wire shelf extenders

Tension rods

Removable double sided tape

Wall mounted magnetic knife rack

Knife rack project materials:

Wood edging – iron-on
Lattice molding
3M command strips

Kitchen cart on wheels

And you can see the kitchen cart upcycle project I did here.

How to decorate a kitchen on a budget

My galley kitchen in my new apartment is definitely an upgrade from my NYC kitchen but I wanted to give my generic white rental kitchen an upgrade and a little bit more personality with some color. I’ve always wanted a blue kitchen so I added a touch of blue with a temporary DIY backsplash and you’ll see how I managed to also paint a feature wall blue without actually painting the wall using temporary wallpaper. Lighting is also very important so I’m going to show you how to install under cabinet lighting using IKEA LED lights for better task lighting at the counter. With these changes, and few more tweaks, I now really love my kitchen and actually like to spend time in it!
