Optimising Your Kitchen Storage

Have you been running out of places to keep things in your kitchen as of late? If so, then it’s time to optimise the space and to make sure you’re getting the most out of what you have.

    Add more room to the pantry

    You probably only have a limited amount of space in the pantry of your kitchen. This can be an issue, but it’s one that’s easy to fix. All you need to do is think about adding some smart organisers. By doing this, you’ll find that there’s more room for everything you need to store and you won’t have to worry about shelves overflowing.

      Add more shelving

      This is all about using any addition ceiling space that you may have. You can add shelving anywhere including at the side of the fridge or over countertops. This basically gives you extra space to store all the items that don’t have a place anywhere else in your kitchen. It ensures that you don’t have a countertop with everything from a blender to a kitchen paper holder and the sugar container. Instead, it’s all up, away and out of sight.

        Fit your kitchen

        If you’re thinking about kitchen storage, fitted kitchens could be the inspiration you need. With a fitted kitchen, everything becomes part of the room. There’s a place for everything and these can be designed around your specific needs. You’ll be able to speak to a designer and determine how many cupboards you need, how many litres of cupboard space you want and where you want them positioned. Would you like shelving included in your kitchen design? No problem, with a fitted kitchen, this can all be part of the plan. As well as this, with a fitted kitchen, there’s no area of space that’s going to be wasted as part of the design. It all fits in neatly with the plan for the room.

          Use the wall

          You also need to think about using your space on the wall. If you have the typical kitchen, you’ll probably find that there are a massive section of walls that are completely bare. There are fantastic ways to use this space and to essentially make the most of it. For instance, you can add hooks. By adding hooks, you will be able to hang up all your pots and pans and maybe a few of the larger utensils. The benefit of doing this is that it’s going to free up drawers and cupboard space which is great news. You could also think about using metallic strips. These can be added to the walls. Once up, you can use them to attach large knives and other items that might be currently clogging up your countertop.

            Section Clutter

            Finally, with a typical kitchen, clutter just builds up on the countertops and you won’t even realise it’s happening. It occurs so gradually and then before you know it, there’s no space to prepare food. You should think about purchasing something as simple as a tray. A tray can fit with the design in the room and it can be used to hold all the clutter that is currently clogging up your countertops. Do this and in no time, you’ll have space to work once more.
