After the drawers are organized, head to the pantry. This is another case where things are often left to fall apart because the door can be shut. In order to shop smart and know what ingredients you have on hand, organize your pantry. Determine what must be kept in the pantry and then figure out the best way to store it. Some things will stay fresh longer if they are in glass containers. Also be sure edible items are up off of the floor by at least six inches.
There are so many types of drawer handles available now that it literally takes up pages and pages in catalogs. Most home improvement stores dedicate entire aisles to them. They are made from a full spectrum of materials from very simple functional wood ones all the way to very exotic bone. Some are very ornate and have very intricate designs. The handles in many cases really make the piece. There are those that are very simple and elegant that is made from pewter, brass, stainless steel and other simple metals. There are others that are shaped to look like other items, like miniature baseballs, footballs or forks and spoons. The sky is the limit to what the handles can be made to resemble. They are also offered in a variety of finishes, to compliment a decor.
Tackle one drawer at a time. Organizing solutions need not take a long time. Set aside a specified amount of time. Limit a maximum of 30 minutes for a large drawer or one that hold lots of items. Smaller, less full drawers put 10-15 minutes time maximum on these sized drawers. This way you stay focused, don't waste time, and you get done quicker and leave more time for other things. When kitchen drawer organizing is done in small, manageable chinks of time, then I find I am more likely to do it more often so will you.
The final choice if you are replacing odd sized drawer knobs is to buy ones with a back plate. A back plate can cover the existing holes. No one will know they are there. It will eliminate the problem inherent in the other option where you have to match the finish of the holes to the drawer front. Many drawer pulls come with back plates. You can search the home improvement stores and hardware stores looking for that ideal set of cabinet handles. It takes a lot of leg work, but you get a first hand look at any hardware you are considering. If it is a local store, you are likely to know how good their return policies are, as well.
To choose drawer knobs that will fit the holes that have already been drilled for previous hardware, it is essential to do some measuring. Take off the old drawer pull and measure from the center of one screw hole to the center of the other. A three-inch distance is quite common and it will be easy to find a replacement.
