You’ve just remodeled your kitchen, and it is gorgeous! Now that those new cabinets are installed, it is time to move all of your kitchen belongings back home. But where to start? Begin by making the most of your cabinets. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Put Things in the Right Place
You may have not realized how many items your kitchen cabinets housed until you were forced to empty those cabinets. Now that you are ready to put everything back, be sure you choose every item’s new home carefully. Ask yourself: “what do I use the most?” These items should always be stored at eye level. They will be easier to retrieve when needed – and easier to put back when you (or anyone in the family) is done with it.
Give Your Drawers a Purpose
Sure, every home has at least one junk drawer in the kitchen to keep those miscellaneous items that you want and need but have no idea where to store. But honestly, should every kitchen drawer look like that? The answer is no. Give every drawer a purpose. That will make organizing it easier and more efficient.
Use Pop Up Shelves
Short on space? No problem! Use pop up shelves to store horizontal things (like dishes). Pop up shelves can double or triple your storage space quickly and easily.
Incorporate a Variety of Storage Solutions
Your home was designed to make life in the kitchen easier, and that means creating the right storage solutions for every inch of your new space. When designing your new home, be sure to ask the experts at Hannah Custom Homes & Remodeling to help you choose the perfect pull-outs; space savers, drawers organizers and more. You may be surprised at the unique kitchen storage solutions they have to offer.
Finding Space for All of Those Gadgets and Appliances
No kitchen is short on gadgets and appliances. The key to using them is to find a home where they can be easily found. This means having a space that can fit those large appliances as well as those small gadgets. Consider what you use most (or would like to use more) when designing your new kitchen – and then use that space!
Organize Those Cleaning Supplies
When you think of kitchen storage ideas, few people think about cleaning supplies. Yet, having the right cleaning tools on hand is vital to keeping messes from getting out of control. Be sure to dedicate one cabinet (preferably a lower cabinet that is away from food items) for cleaning supplies like disinfectant sprays, cloths, dishwasher tablets and more. Most people prefer to store these types of items under the sink, so be sure to create a large enough cabinet to accommodate these essential cleaning items when designing your new home.
