DIY Small Baking Cabinet Organization Idea

3 Materials
1 Hour

While I have a larger kitchen, my baking cabinet that houses all my baking pans is small. Follow along and see how I did my baking cabinet organization in this small 24 inches wide cabinet in my kitchen.

BEFORE CABINET: The stuff did not fit in the cabinet at all, and I had reduced it as much as possible. I used all these items and had items from my oven and microwave in here as well. It was super frustrating to go into this cabinet, as you can see.

First, I cleared out the entire cabinet. Add and cut the liner and place them on the cleaned cabinet shelves.

I added the glassware from largest on the bottom and smallest on top. They fit nicely together and could stand on their sides easily.

I then stacked all the round baking pans from smallest on top to largest on the bottom on the shelf and added other less used supplies on the shelf and in the back on the bottom of the cabinet.

I then added the bakeware organizer to the front right side and started with the muffin tins. I placed them to the side because they are not used that often. This makes them out of the way but accessible when I need them.

I added the baking sheets next inside the organizer. These organizer dividers could hold about 2 inches wide stacked baking sheets so that I could have FIVE baking sheets in various sizes.

The muffin tins were placed on the side with the banking dishes because they sat nicely inside one another.

The oval baking dishes were not used often so placing them on the back and back of the cabinet worked for me.

The drying racks' bottoms were facing each other because the racks would get stuck on the wire part of the organizer. By doing this simple change, it made it easier to pull out from the organizer.

The glassware baking dishes were not inside the organizer. If I could find an organizer in this small space, I would add it here to complete the area, but I didn't find one.

Then, I added the extra supplies from the range and microwave. They filled up the rest of the cabinet.

I am thrilled with the outcome. The cabinet door closes too! YAY! I can easily pull out the supplies I need. Since I do not use round baking dishes often, being in the back works well for me.

    Years ago, I tried this in my smaller cabinet next to my stove. HATE the half shelf in cabinet, have a few cake pans there now with some travel mugs in them. Never pull out, too much trouble to get on floor and pull everything else out to get to them. If you are in an apartment or rent, this is a good solution but if you own and can slowly change kitchen that is the better bet. I had a rack for the baking sheets like in your photos, but largest pans didn't fit even with half shelf. So ended up putting under sink. Got tired of that too, b/c had to move cleaning supplies sometimes to reach back to pans. So then I started storing in oven. Now they live on one of my kitchen chairs. Am going to try and talk husband into move fridge and putting corner cabinets in and half depth cabinets along one wall next to corner cabinets. Our kitchen was poorly redone before we bought it, by a bachelor, and there is no space plus we have 5 doorways.

      If you are really angry about not being able to store all your muffin tins, sheet pans and drying racks here’s an idea for you. Take a sledgehammer and remove that half shelf. I store all my pans this way and even turn some of the tall ones on their side to make it easier to reach. My cabinet has a door opening of only 9 inches wide and I have 14 sheet pans, cookie sheets and drying racks in there in addition to a 2-piece broiler pan.
