Organizing Ideas For Glass Front Cabinets

I like to keep a clean house, When my house is orderly, I feel happy and can think clearly.  If you were to drop by my house unannounced, it would look pretty good.  But I do have a dirty little secret. I have a hard time keeping my kitchen cabinets and closets orderly.  The reason being is I am a collecter.  Can you relate?  This is our glass front cabinet.  I know not everyone has an antique medical cabinet in their dining room, but I'm sure some of you might have glass cabinets in your kitchen or a hutch in your dining room.  What I like about glass cabinets is the same thing as what I don't like....you have a clear view of what's inside.  Keeping them tidy is important and sometimes hard to do.  I decided it was time to pare down and simplify.  As painful as paring down can be, there's nothing quite like the feel of a lighter load!

1

EMPTY YOUR CABINET AND EDIT YOUR STUFF


The first thing you want to do is clear out your entire cabinet, and place everything on top of your table and edit, edit, edit. Editing is the most important part of organizing and often the most difficult because it means parting with some of your things.

CLEAN

Once your cabinet is empty, go ahead and clean all of the shelves.  I used my homemade natural cleaner   If would like to make your own natural cleaner click on the link to go to that post. You will also find free cleaning recipes & labels to download and print.

THINK...WHAT DO I WANT TO DISPLAY IN MY CABINET?

After you've decided what goes and what stays you're going to give your STAY pile one more edit by choosing what will go inside your cabinet. This will make your cabinet look cohesive.  You can pick a theme or choose a color.  I chose mainly white and added a few colorful cups and bowls.

4

GROUP LIKE ITEMS TOGETHER

Now it is time to decorate your shelves by grouping like items together. Bowls with bowls, cups with cups and plates with plates.

ADD COLOR IN CREATIVE WAYS

After the shelves are organized with your plates, bowls, cups, and glasses it is time to add color.  Fruit and greenery are simply displayed in clear glass vessels.  Nothing fancy a  pickle jar or a large vase will do.  Using clear glass makes for a clean uncluttered look.

Use items that have colorful labels and group them together on a plate or tray.  For subdued color place a handful of wine corks in a glass vase.

ADD TEXTURE

Beans in mason jars and folded towels add texture and warmth to the glass shelves.

USE BASKETS

I have to say baskets are my best friend!  Remember the paper towels and cookbooks that were exposed on the bottom shelf.   Guess where they are now?  Yes, hidden away inside these baskets.

Place a large basket on top of your cabinet for more storage.
