Spring Cleaning Dish Cabinet Organizing Tips

I love dishes! They make eating more of an event than a have to do to survive task! Using dishes you love to eat from, help make your food taste better! Finding dishes you love is just half of the fun, storing them the other half. Last week I shared some tips on how to organize some of your kitchen cabinets {here}. Today, I am sharing some tips on how to Spring clean your dish cabinets with some simple organizing tips and dish sources.

If you missed it, last week I shared some other tips for kitchen cabinet organization here.

We use plenty of paper goods at our house. In fact we have a paper goods drawer that I will be sharing soon. Eating on nicer dishes is my preference, so when we have the time, I reach for real dishes from our dish cabinet.

Like all the cabinets in your home, an organized dish cabinet will make your life a little better! An organized cabinet is an extension of the rest of your home. Opening the door of your beautifully organized dish cabinet will give you as much pleasure as a beautifully styled coffee table!

So, here are a few tips to keep yours organized and looking beautiful, plus sources to my favorite everyday dishes.

Store your dishes the way you use them! Stack all of the dishes you use frequently in the front where they are easily accessible. Store glasses that you use less often up higher. Having your dishes in a spot where they are simple to grab, will cut time and frustration!

In the cabinet to the left of our stove are the dishes I use a few times a week. They are neatly stacked for easy access. Get rid of any dishes that don’t belong in your sets of dishes or that you don’t use very often!
Place the dishes you use the most together in a spot that makes the most sense. Cereal bowls, breakfast plates, dinner plates, and everyday glasses are all arranged in this one cabinet. This makes it so quick and easy to grab what you need and things stay nice and neat.

Buy all white dishes! This will allow your kitchen to feel cohesive and beautiful. Having all white dishes is so versatile. They go with any color scheme, holiday or event. You can dress them up or down. The possibilities are endless! It’s ok to have pattern plates, but use those as your accent plates.

I have lots of different patterns on  my white plates, but I can easily mix and match pattern and texture. 

These are the dishes we use daily in our home. They are dishwasher safe, microwave safe and beautiful to eat from!

Store your dishes close to where you unload your dishwasher. You don’t want to lug your dishes from one end of the kitchen to the other! Try to find a spot for them in close proximity to that good old dishwasher! Our kids empty our dishwasher. So having our dish cabinet close by, also makes it less likely for them to drop something in route to the cabinet.

Add something to your cabinet that is a little unexpected and pretty to look at. This will make you smile every single time you open those doors. A candle from our trip to France sits on top of a stack of dishes. It blends right in since it is white. I think of our amazing trip daily because of the little reminder.

Our command center cabinet sits next to our dish cabinet. There are pretty little details in there as well that make opening that door a pleasant surprise. You can click here to read more about this little cabinet.

I hope these tips help you Spring clean your dish cabinets and keep you living life in style!

  1. Absolutely loving this blog! Such great organizing tips and tricks. Your kitchen is absolutely stunning!

    1. Kari thank you so much for the lovely compliment! Wishing you a lovely day! xo

  2. I love your blog. We spend winters in Chandler and your home is so special for a home down here.
    Your idea about getting rid of pieces you don’t use is spot on.
    I spend a lot of time thinking about where to put things in my kitchens whenever we move. I like to store the plates, silverware and stuff we use all the time so that I can stand at the dishwasher and put them away. For me it makes life so much easier. Fortunately, we have the perfect cabinets between the dishwasher and our breakfast table in both houses. Makes setting the table easy too. I also had pull out drawers made for all my lower cabinets and for the pantry. I’m too old to get down on my knees to pull out stuff.
    I love having a baking area where the flour, sugar etc is in the big jars like you have on your counter. I pull out the drawer, open and measure what I want, put the lid back on and push it closed. In Oregon, where I have grandchildren I had to buy big square containers so they can measure without as much flour and sugar getting everywhere. So much tidier than pulling it out and having it on the counter.
    Keep up the wonderful posts.

    1. Hi Jean, thank you so much for your sweet message! You are such a sweet lady! xoxo
