No matter how large your kitchen is, it always seems that every kitchen needs more storage. Here are five tips for maximizing the storage your kitchen already has:
1. Corral your lids. By mounting a drawer for pot lids directly under your pot shelf you will be able to corral your lids and create a more efficient kitchen.
2. A second utensil drawer. Utensils drawers tend to be a deep jumbled mess of interlocking utensils and other handy tools. By building a sliding tray that creates two shallower spaces in one drawer you can organize your utensils more efficiently.
3. Add upright storage. Keep baking trays, cutting boards, and other difficult to store items that take up a lot of flat cabinet space upright by adding a divider to one of your cabinets and creating an upright storage space.
4. Add shelves. Take a look in your kitchen cabinets… is there a lot of wasted space? If so, add an additional shelf to your cabinet by cutting some plywood to fit and purchasing a bag of shelf supports.
5. Utilize cabinet doors. Your cabinet doors offer many storage options such as a built in knife rack, hooks for storing measuring cups or spoons, narrow racks for storing spices, and more. Depending on what would best suit your space, a quick internet search is bound to bring up many suggestions for cabinet door storage that I would recommend taking a look at.
