My kitchen drawers are slightly narrow, and my utensil holder has a lip around it. The holder sits on the drawer ledge, but there's still space to close the drawer. It also leaves enough room below to store wooden spoons, spatulas, or other tools. The utensil holder easily slides back and forth to make the spoons accessible, also. I do have to lift the holder from the front end sometimes, but that's little concern to me.
It cost about $7 for the utensil holder, and worth millions for organizational purposes.
