Aah…how I would die for a clutter-free kitchen! It might seem like the unreachable dream, but these nifty storage ideas will help you on your path to orderly bliss. If your cupboards are struggling to contain all of your kitchenalia or you just love clever space-saving solutions, you need to add some of these smart ideas to your kitchen.
Optimize your pantry –Make the most out of your pantry space by organizing your groceries. Keep a rotation of kitchen pantry – cereals, dry goods and spices, so that you’re not adding clutter to your shelves with expired items.
Consider open shelves -Not only are open shelves a hot kitchen trend right now, but they also help to open a cramped space.
Maximize your existing storage -If budget is an issue, take a look at improving your existing space. Add dowel rods to your cabinets and shelves to create plate holders and add more storage space.
Clear food storage -Clear food containers are great for small spaces because they let you visually identify your dry goods quickly and easily, without having to rummage through cluttered or cramped cabinets. Putting a label on the container makes it all easier still.
Leave no space unused -Don’t forget to make use of even the smallest spaces to get the most out of your kitchen. A pull-out drawer under your sink, for example, is a handy way to store sponges and knickknacks that would otherwise take up valuable counter space.
Open up with light-colored kitchens -Use cool colors, like whites and grays, to open up your kitchen space.
Use vertical space -With smaller kitchens, cabinet and drawer space can be limited, so get smart with your vertical space. Pierced boards are great for hanging larger kitchen utensils that would otherwise crowd your drawer space. Additionally, glass-front mounted cabinet doors are a beautiful way to display your serving ware and to leverage wall space.
Super cabinet to the rescue -Pull-out drawers and racks allow you to pack all of your pantry items into one convenient location in a fraction of the space of a normal-sized pantry.
Small kitchen spaces can be tough to keep organized, but don’t let a cramped space get you down! These storage ideas will help you maximize your space and create a better kitchen.And finally…the trick really is to make the most of what you’ve got!
