How to Organize Under the Kitchen Sink


One of the most challenging spaces to organize in your home is under the kitchen sink. When organizing under the kitchen sink we have to be creative to get the most use around the pipes and garbage disposal. Maybe I can get even more space if I talk to a Plumber Frankston to get the most efficient plumbing set up and then decide to check out some sinks at places similar to to get some sink inspiration that might help you with organizing your sink. I was excited to share with you how I organized under my kitchen sink to maximize space in the video below.
One of the reasons why finding space under your kitchen sink is so difficult is because of the way the water-pipes have been installed. Regrettably, there are no easy, dependable DIY fixes for a badly-planned kitchen sink pipes. It might require the service of professional plumbers such as the charlotte plumbing experts to fix these issues and thus make up more space for storage.

The first step to any home organization project is to clear the space and purge the items that are not needed. Under your kitchen sink you want to only place those items that you need.





In this video I share with you how I organized under my kitchen sink and the organizing tools that I used to work around the challenging areas. I hope you enjoy and find helpful.

    Hey Nikki! Love this! Where can I find the cleaning caddy?

  2. Cathy says:

    The “under the sink kitchen” makeover is so inspirational. Looking at it makes cleaning the kitchen more exciting when I think that perhaps some day my kitchen could be as well organized and appointed as yours.

  3. Kelli says:

    Hi Nikki. Loved your under sink organization. Did you make the “clean” sticker?

  4. Diana says:

    Thank you for sharing this! I appreciate your tip about the single sink, as we are getting ready to replace ours. And I haven’t used SOS pads in a while; guess I got scared they would scratch things. But if Nikki uses them, it’s probably a good idea…putting it on my list now 🙂

  5. Christine says:

    Love this! Beautifully done!

  6. Kellee says:

    I’m SO excited to see all your tips!! You mentioned you’d post a link for the crocheted finger towels. Where do I find that? Also, do you have a link for the teal Target organize bins? Those are perfect!

  7. Dawn says:

    Nikki, you must have the most beautiful and best-organized under-the-sink cabinet in the world!

  8. Tia says:

    Hi Nikki, hope your well. I just did my kitchen cabinet. I will use the SOS pad idea cutting into 4 pieces. So many good ideas. Thank you! Your kitchen is beautiful.

  9. Tammie says:

    Hey there Nikki, I don’t have to tell you how much you inspire me and give me so much inspiration. I just ordered my under the sink Baskets from Amazon so that I can start my organizational process under my sink. I would like to know though, where or how did you make your cleaning caddy under your sink?

  10. Susan carter says:

    Love the cleaning caddy. Where did you purchase it?

  11. Morgan says:

    I love your kitchen! What kind of granite do you have in your kitchen?

  12. Christine says:

    Hello! Loved your under the sink organization and ran right out to Target this morning to get those stackable containers! Thank you! Are you able to provide the info on your diffuser and what oils you use to freshen your kitchen in the evenings?

  13. Joan says:

    Love your organizational videos. Now I want to organize my spaces. Thank you..

  14. Gari says:

    I just viewed your two videos of your craft room and was truly impressed. I have a 3 room quilting studio that is so messed up I have not been able to get back to work in it. (I got sick last spring and in June was diagnosed with breast cancer that had already spread into most of my bones. I missed summer but finally got on a medication that is strengthening my bones and helping me to feel stronger.) Meanwhile as I was going down the mess in my studio was piling higher and higher. I can’t stand for long periods so am slowly beginning to put things in the places designated for them and your organization has inspired me to try to work a little harder so I can get back to creating and using what time I have to make a last minute mark, or whatever time I have. Thanks for the inspiration, just when I needed it.

  15. michelle says:

    Love the sink…what diffuser do you use , glove brand , and the hand soap containers and the cleaning caddy?
    I love it all…. thanks for sharing

  16. Liana Hanson says:

    Where did you get the hand soap and dish soap containers and the white tray on which it sits?

    • Kierstin Auger says:

      Your kitchen is AMAZING! Where did you get the hand and dish soap containers and the white tray. I have wanted something just like that forever. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Melynda says:

    Hi Nikki!
    Love love your videos!! So inspirational! I was wondering the mint cleaning clothes that you have, are they called ‘green’ color on the website? The colors looks off but I REALLY want the mint colored ones like the what you have. Thank You, Melynda

  18. Nav says:

    Your kitchen organization ideas are awesome. May I know where did you get the hand soap dispenser and dish soap dispenser bottles from

  19. Brittany says:

    Hi Nikki! I’m praising the pinterest God’s today for guiding me to your site! I am desperately trying to get organized and you give me hope! I’m trying to order the canisters from target, do you mind telling me how many of each size you have? Thank you so much!

  20. Cristy says:

    I love all things organizational and haven’t seen anyone using the canisters you used for your dishwashing tabs and so forth before. That was such a great idea and keeps everything nice and tidy while still looking pretty!

  21. Maryann says:

    Stunning ! Thank you ! Maryann from Cape Town, South Africa ????

  22. Chante' says:

  23. Mel says:

    Love this! Where did you get your dish and hand soap bottles?

  24. Kim says:

    Hi Nikki. Love the kitchen sink organization help. Question for you… Do you have any suggestions for what I call “the black hole”? That deep awkward under the counter corner cupboard in the kitchen that usually doesn’t have a large opening? No matter what I do it seems like wasted space in the kitchen that should have some practical use other than stuff getting pushed into the back corner and forever forgotten because you can’t reach it.

  25. Debbie Turner says:

    Nikki where did you get your valet and the dispenser for dish soap and hand soap? I got so many ideas from you . Thank you for sharing! D.

  26. Mandy says:

    Love this! Makes me want to organize. It also reminds me of a time when I didn’t have kiddos that make this so hard! Nikki- have you seen the grommets on gloves for hanging? You’d prob like! I LOVE the tiffblue color- makes my Heart happy!

  27. Carol says:

    I thought there was supposed to be a link to etsy shop for the cloths but I didn’t see a link. Can you provide it? Thanks

  28. Lauren says:

    Hi Nikki,
    I love your organizational ideas for under the sink area. You created an inviting space in an area that is often overlooked. I love creating spaces that encourage me to enjoy mundane tasks like cleaning the kitchen. Thank you for the wonderful tips. I am excited to create a space of my own.

  32. Donna says:

    Love the idea of having one huge sink! My question is… Do you rinse them under running water then instead of placing them in the next sink to be rinsed? I know it sounds like a silly question , but I’m curious. Love your under the sink organizing ! I will have to steal some of your ideas. Thanks again for your tips. You have a very beautiful home from what I have seen so far and love the color

  41. Amanda says:

    Hi. Thank you for your inspiring video. I hope to organize my space just like you have. I was wondering where you get your clear dish soap and hand soap you keep in the counter as well as where did u get the soap dispensers from?
    Thanks so much!

  42. Karla says:

    Thank you. I like that you tell where and why you’ve choose everything.

  43. Janice says:

    I just found you- via Pinterest- LOVE this!

    I was wondering though- do you have a dish drainer? If so, where do you store it? How about a dish ‘pan’, or do you use the entire sink when washing dishes? I have a dish drainer that I am constantly putting under the sink and then taking back out, as I hate having it sitting on the counter- but you don’t have room for such under that beautifully organized sink area.

    Thanks for your help- I’ll be wandering around your blog…

  44. Nancy says:

    Hi Nikki,
    Please tell us where you got your ‘cleaning caddy’.
    Wonderful blog as always.

  45. Heather says:

    Hi Nikki,

    Thanks! I am loving your blog.

    Nikki I loved your Video! I made my trip to target today for all my supplies. Thanks for sharing!!

  50. Adrienne says:

    I love how she coordinated the colors!! I wish all of my soaps and detergents etc… Were all the same colors like this. They are not so I went out and bought several plastic bins and instead of one color, I bought a variety of different bright color lids. It looks amazing and thanks to this video, I love my kitchen sink area. Thank you

  51. Alice says:

    looooove this. such an inspirational kitchen…eye catching in a subtle enough way to keep it looking clean and organized.

  62. Jackie says:

  65. Bretta says:

    Very nice! We are remodeling our kitchen ourselves right now so I’m looking forward to implementing your ideas. I’ve cut my s.o.s. Pads for years too, but I also cut my magic erasers in fourths to make them last longer as well, plus I get to use a fresh one more often than if I leave them whole.
