  1. Get rid of unnecessary or extra kitchen stuffs. 
  2. Sort kitchen spices, dry foods, kitchen gadgets, bake/cookware, small kitchen appliances, dinnerware, flatware, glassware, serving dishes, kitchen utensils, cutlery sets, knives, kitchen textiles, cookbooks/ recipe books, tabletop decor, other kitchen tools and accessories. 

  3. In kitchen cabinets/ pantry/ kitchen shelf, allocate space for each of the above mentioned category.
  4. After using any stuff, put it back to it's own place. 
  5. Space for bakeware, cookware and spices should be kept close to the stove. Lid racks can be used to organize lids. Label spices in similar see-through jars so that you can find easily that you need. 

  6. Organize dinnerware, glassware and serving dishes and small kitchen appliances according to their use. For example, special serving dishes that are used occasionally can be kept in higher shelves. On the other hand, dishes that are used frequently should stand close to your reach. 
  7. Sort spoon, fork and knives and use drawer organizer to organize those in a cabinet drawer. Alternatively, small storage box with dividers can be used for cutlery sets. 

  8. Kitchen textiles such as kitchen towels, dish cloths, oven mitts and pot holders should be kept in designated place so that when required, you can reach those easily . 
  9. Keep recipe books/ cook books in a place where moisture and oil spills do not reach.

  10. Kitchen cleaners should be kept within kitchen. You can allocate under the sink space to organize those. 
Note:You may not have enough cabinet space to store all your kitchen stuffs. Try to use shelf or other storage unit to organize your kitchen. De clutter kitchen counter tops and use storage boxes to provide minimal visibility of kitchen stuffs that do not help your kitchen to look good. However, prioritize your convenience to find the stuff you need.
