Kitchen Storage

Kitchen storage stores and websites are the latest craze in small home improvements! Affordable, easy to install and highly useful, the possibilities are endless!

But before you run to the store to buy all this new  storage space, you will need to know what needs to be stored. If you need to add some space for pots and pans, dishes and glassware, trays and serving bowls, spices or packaged foods, you will need to measure the items you will be storing so you know how large your storage units should be.

Storage is more than just plain cabinets, there are so many more options these today. You can find solutions to various storage problems and be able to make the most of even the smallest of spaces.

It is possible to have a beautiful looking kitchen and lots of storage. A good place to start would be the kitchen cabinets and cupboards. You can purchase wire shelving that stands in your cabinets and can double the usable space!

But there are other places in the kitchen that could provide potential storage areas. You need to think beyond the cabinets, shelves and closets to look at available storage space.

Kitchen Storage

Carefully examine all surfaces in your kitchen, for example look at areas above or below appliances, also look behind doors and any unused floor space your might have. Draw up a list of any potential storage areas in the kitchen that can be better organized.

You can also make your own kitchen storage units that can be custom-designed to fit your needs. You can build common kitchen storage cabinets and racks that will add storage space and help you organize your kitchen better. For instance you could build a wall mounted rack holder for storing pots and pans. It could also be hung from the ceiling. Another idea is to install some 3 tiered step shelves for storing condiments, cans, and spices in wall cabinets.

The false fronts on sink base cabinets are great for installing tilt out trays that can storage away sponges, soap, and other kitchen items.

You could add a towel bar to the back of sink base cabinet doors for keeping dish cloths and small hand towels close to the area you need them in. Installing pull-out baskets or shelving in base cabinets can make it easier to reach items in the back.

Tray dividers can also be installed in base cabinets to create more storage for trays, cookie sheets, and muffin pans.
