Smart storage solutions will transform your kitchen from cluttered to cozy. No matter how small your kitchen there’s probably more room for stuff than you think. Start with the following tips and let the possibilities unfold.
Lids are almost impossible to find when you need them if they’re all jumbled in a drawer. Install a slide-out pot lid rack inside a lower cabinet to keep tops organized.
Window seats are pretty in the kitchen. Make them pay for their keep by equipping a window seat with deep, roll out cabinets underneath.
Need more countertop space? Extend prep space with a hinged piece of butcher block that you can fold down when not in use.
A wire baker’s rack with hooks and adjustable shelving will instantly expand kitchen storage.
Free up valuable space by installing a blacksplash rail system with hooks. Sleek stainless steel complements the modern kitchen décor. Get your kitchen utensils out of the junk drawer and hang them to save both time and space.
Spices, medicines, small jars or bottles will be visible and won’t spill when displaying them on a clear turntable. No more standing on tippy-toe to reach small items way in back of the pantry!
Kitchen Tool Holders
Rescue those turners, flippers and slotted spoons from the junk drawer and arrange them in a beautiful kitchen tool holder. It’s easy to find the perfect holder to match your décor. Look at wall mounted tool holders if you’re short on counter space.
Small Storage Bins for Specialized Items
Sort out your specialized items like Christmas cookie cutters and cake decorating tools and put them in clear plastic bins. Label each bin and stack them in your pantry or a closet.
You can instantly double your cabinet space by using cabinet organizers to stack your dishes. You’ll also reduce breakage with individualized storage space for plates, platters and saucers.
Divide and Conquer
By storing pizza pans, cutting boards, cookie sheets, etc. on their sides you not only save space, these items will be easier to reach. Use kitchen dividers to separate items.
