The good thing about a kitchen renovation is that you get the chance to personalize it to your specific needs and lifestyle. This includes storage solutions! When it comes to kitchens, storage is essential for keeping the space functional and organized. However, not all kitchens are created equal, and some may lack the necessary storage space. Whether you have a small kitchen or a large one, there are storage solutions available to make the most of your space.
Here are 7 kitchen creative kitchen storage solutions for any sized space:
1. Maximize Cabinet Space:
Cabinet space can be limited, but there are ways to make the most of it. You may notice there is negative space in cabinets – you can use shelf risers to utilize this extra space for more storage. A plus is also that you can actually see the dishware being stored in the back of your cabinets. There are more solutions such as pull-out organizers for pots, pans, and lids. You can also install a lazy susan to make it easier to access items in the back of the cabinet.
2. Use Vertical Space:
If you’re short on counter or cabinet space, consider using the empty wall space left bare after cabinet installation. You can install shelves or a pegboard to hang utensils, or create a coffee bar where you store and display your mug collection. You can even utilize magnetic knife strips to store your chef knives. Think outside the box – or cabinet – for how you can store items.
3. Hang Pots and Pans:
Speaking of vertical space, hanging pots and pans can free up cabinet space and make them more accessible. You can install a pot rack or use a wall-mounted rail with hooks to hang your cookware.
4. Utilize the Pantry:
Pantry spaces have a tendency to become cluttered which makes it hard to know what food you have available. This can lead to wasting money on purchasing items you already have and food waste. Organizing a pantry is essential to knowing what you have and where you can find it. You can use clear storage containers to keep snacks and ingredients visible and organized. You can also install shelving or racks to keep canned goods, spices, and other items accessible.
5. Under-the-Sink Storage:
The space under your sink is often overlooked but can be valuable for storage. One creative option is to install a tension rod to hang cleaning supplies, which gets them off the bottom of the cabinet, making room for more items to be stored. You can also purchase and under the stink pull-out organizer to store dish washing soap, trash bags, and other kitchen essentials.
6. Invest in Multi-Use Appliances:
There are so many kitchen gadgets available these days – but many of them are only good for a single use – like making breakfast sandwiches. But, if you’re short on counter space, you may want to consider investing in multi-use appliances like an Instant Pot or an air fryer. These appliances can replace multiple tools and take up less space.
7. Use Drawer Organizers:
Drawer organizers are not just for silverware anymore. There are many options for drawer inserts that can help keep utensils, measuring cups, and other small items in their place.
