Keys to Kitchen Storage
When looking to update a kitchen space, one of the first things you should consider is improving the storage. Following a few simple principles will enhance the overall use and efficiency of your kitchen. So, trade in those deep, dark cupboards with unused pans sitting in the back for modern and simplistic designs that really will improve your whole kitchen.
For the above the counter cabinet storage, deep shelves will get you nowhere except needing a step ladder. You only need one layer of storage in the upper cabinets. This way, you can easily see and access those items, especially those on the top shelf.
Drawers are the answer to your prayers in the lower cabinets. Instead of having to bend down and reach your arm deep into the cabinet, pull out the tray and have it all out in the open for your choosing! This makes it easier to store pots, pans, appliances, and dishes in the lower cabinets without having to worry about getting them out later.
Pick a place for everything and keep it specific! When remodeling, consider what you need storage for and accommodate that need. There are specific storage solutions too that will keep dishes in places, food accessible, and cooking utensils organized.
Open shelving is a great solution for staying organized. With dishes and food in view, whether in the kitchen or the pantry, the open design will give you easy access, but also motivate you to keep it orderly. Wire shelving in the pantry will keep food remnants and dusts from gathering. An open design encourages a naturally cleaner space.
