Readers ask: Best kitchen utensil storage options?

I received a question from a reader who was looking for storage ideas for her kitchen utensils:

What suggestion do you have for drawer dividers for kitchen tools? The ones I have don't seem to realize that the sticky part of the slots (that hold the dividers) are actually supposed to stick to the drawer sides. Do you have brands that you recommend? Thanks!

One of my favorite shops, the Container Store, offers many organizing solutions. The Expand-A-Drawer Utensil Trays adjust to the width of your drawer:

An Expandable Bamboo Cutlery Tray is also an attractive option:

KMN Home (sold through also has a really cool option for a customizable utensil drawer kit:

Or you could always display your kitchen tools on your counter within a beautiful container:

Finally, if you are a do-it-yourselfer, you could try this option (which I'm considering attempting myself). The author does a fantastic job of explaining and photographing the step-by-step process and the beautiful final results:

I hope this helps! Please let me know which solution ends up working best for you!!

Best wishes from Georgia,
