Today there are more choices for storing your silverware, cutlery and everyday eating utensils than ever before. Cabinet manufacturers usually offer cutlery dividers as an accessory. Most of these are fixed in the designated drawer which allows for little flexibility.
I find that lately most of my clients opt to source their own. There are so many materials ranging from metal, to bamboo to plastic. The best part is they are also removable to allow for easy cleaning.

Keep in mind that you can use these drawer organizers for more than just cutlery. They're great in a bathroom for make up or a desk for pens and other office supplies. In addition there are multiple configurations. Take stock of what you have to help you decide how to arrange the compartments in your drawer. I like the Orgaline system from Blum.

Individual compartments fit into a frame that in turn fits into your drawer. You can also remove the compartments without the frame if that works better in your particular situation.
