How To Make The Most Of Your Kitchen Storage Space
Even with a big kitchen and massive walk-in pantry, without the proper storage organization, the space will start to feel cluttered and cramped. Let’s be honest, you’ve probably ordered take out more times than you’d like to admit because who likes to cook in a disorganized space? We sure don’t! Here are some of the best tips to tidy up your pantry and organize your pots, pans and spices.
The first and most important step is clearing the clutter! Donate any kitchen items that you no longer use and throw away expired foods. Reducing your kitchen items and only keeping what you need is a major step towards having the organized space of your dreams. Now that you’ve reduced your kitchen items and only have the essentials, we can dive into some innovative storage solutions.
Clever storage solutions create a user-friendly pantry that keeps clutter off your kitchen counter. Many conventional pantries only have open shelving, but there’s something else to consider. When you add a countertop and cabinets to your pantry, it will double your kitchen’s usable space and take its storage capacity to the next level. Use baskets and bins to organize your pantry essentials and don’t forget to add labels to everything. Finding things quickly is a breeze in a well-organized pantry.
Maximize your cabinet space with pull-out cabinet organizers. No more rifling around in a dark cabinet looking for a mixing bowl only to come up short. Instead, pull-out organizers slide easily on gliders with little effort so you can find exactly what you need, when you need it. Large pull-out drawers maximize every cubic inch of storage space and are roomy enough to store bulky items, like pots and pans.
Does your kitchen have an empty wall? Perfect! Think vertically and add some custom floating shelves. Beautiful open shelving does double duty as both a place to display your decor and as an area to store your kitchen essentials. Place everyday use items, like beautiful glassware, plates and bowls on your open shelves. These items will always be within reach and it will free up some extra cabinet space for things that you don’t use every day.
