If you have ever struggled to cope with the amount of items in your cupboard or have a small kitchen and need help organising space then follow our guide to maximising storage units.
Open shelves let you display your prettiest kitchenware while making everything easy to spot and retrieve or put away.
If you don’t want to take down existing upper cabinets but like the idea of open shelves, simply remove a few doors and paint cabinet interiors to set off your belongings.
Intrusive plumbing pipes, the sink bottom, and pullout hoses can make bringing order beneath the kitchen sink a particular challenge. Choose stackable acrylic or wire shelving that fits beside and below the sink U pope to make the most of available space.
Add storage bins, shelves, and hooks inside doors for more storage, and consider including some specialty storage such as a holder for plastic grocery bags.
To boost storage, look for a kit that transforms the false drawer fronts on the front of the sink cabinet into tilt-out bins for storing cleaning items.
A deep drawer becomes a safe harbor for pots and pans near the stovetop. You can also use drawers to hold dishware by adding dish divider dowels to keep plates, bowls, and saucers stacked tightly in place.
Make sure the drawer is equipped with quality sliding hardware that can hold the weight of dishes when the drawer is fully extended.
Add a pullout rack inside the door for spices. If you have more space, install a turntable on one shelf so you can spin bottles of oils and vinegars into view. Decant other foods and spices into clear or labeled containers for quick inventory and easy stacking. If you’ve ever used a flashlight in a fruitless search to find something at the back of a dark cabinet, you’ll love this solution.
Trade out fixed cabinet shelves for ones that effortlessly slide out. With sliding shelves, you can see items at the back of the shelf as easily as dry goods at the front. A shallow lip around each shelf keeps supplies from falling off.
Keep items from rattling around inside drawers by adding an insert or drawer divider that maintains order so you quickly spot what you need. Fit small containers between dividers when you have especially tiny objects to corral.
You’ll need a place to store cutting boards, cookie sheets, muffin tins, and other items that stack neatly on their sides.
Convert a cabinet with dividers and allow these items to stand on end. It’s an ideal height and keeps them conveniently close to your prep zone.
You’re more likely to recycle when bins for paper, plastic, and glass stow neatly inside cabinets near the kitchen cleanup zone. Pullout cabinets feature cut outs sized to hold plastic waste receptacles that are easy to lift out and empty when needed.
