Adding Storage and Organization

Every home is unique, and the ways in which we use our kitchens vary widely from family to family. Some kitchens see daily activity, big meals prepared, lots of leftovers bundled up and stored, several pots of coffee and baked sweets made and consumed. In other homes, the kitchen may only be used on special days like black-eyed peas on New Years and the occasional night in. Either way, everyone deserves a kitchen that makes them feel content, relaxed and at ease.

The past decades gave rise to cookie cutter houses, all with similar kitchen layouts, the only noticeable difference being the size of the kitchen. How do we make our kitchens as unique as we are? For starters, let’s tackle the biggest problem we all face — Clutter! Whether you’re a weekend baker with big mixing bowls, or a secret saucier with lots of utensils and gadgets, there are many options to personalize your space. Here are some easy ways to add functionality, storage, and organization to make your kitchen perfect for you.

Customize your drawers with Veggie Bins and a Bread Box.

Utilize extra wall space by hanging Pots and Pans. Get rid of that old knife block and use a Magnetic Knife Strip instead.

Add an island with a rolling cart, or for a more permanent solution use a narrow table. A custom stone top is an easy addition that adds beauty to the kitchen.

Lower cabinets can collect clutter as items are hard to reach. Roll Out Trays can be installed in any cabinet to store heavy pots and pans, plastic containers, cleaning supplies, and much more.

Make using fresh herbs easy by hanging planters to an empty wall.

 

The cabinets above the microwave and fridge are hardly ever used. Add vertical dividers to store all your baking pans, serving platters and cutting boards.

Do you have any clever ideas for making the most of your kitchen space perfect for you?
