Kitchen storage can be a constant struggle, especially if you have a small kitchen. Without adequate storage, your kitchen will get cluttered and messy. Here are some ways to make the most of the storage space you have and add more storage options.
Pull Out Pantry
You can outfit one of your cabinets with pull-out shelving that maximizes the number of items that can be stored. Pull-out pantries are perfect for storing oils, canned goods, pasta, baking ingredients, and more. This type of shelving is usually made to fit tall, thin, and deep cabinets. It slides out to reveal a lot more storage than it looks like on the surface.
Use an Overhead Pot Rack for Kitchen Storage
Overhead racks are useful if you have a lot of cookware. Pots and pans are difficult to stack together in a cabinet or drawer because they are all different sizes. They have holes at the ends of their handles so they can be hung from hooks. You’ll also free up some drawer and cabinet space by not keeping pots and pans there. Overhead racks come in many styles and some even include lighting. Installing one directly over an island is a popular look for kitchens.
A Lazy Susan is a rotating disk for storing spices and other small containers. It makes it easy to access things towards the back by simply spinning the disk around. Some Lazy Susans come with multiple tiers to store more items. They are great space savers and can be hidden away in cabinets or placed on the countertop.
Add an Island for Kitchen Storage
An island is a valuable addition to a kitchen as it provides more counter space and storage underneath. Use a set of cabinets or drawers for the base of the island and install a countertop. It can also double as a seating area if you put a couple of stools on one side. If you have a lot of open space in the middle of the kitchen, adding an island is a great idea.
