One of the most common requests with kitchen remodels is to create more storage space. Having a neat and accessible place for food and accessories makes it easier to cook and prepare meals. There are many creative ways to improve organization in your kitchen while providing storage space for everything you need. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
- Built-In Drawer Organizer – Some things are just plain difficult to keep neat and tidy. Use built-in drawer organizers to change that. Once a feature left only to custom cabinetmakers, kitchen cabinet manufacturers now offers drawers with separators for spices, kitchen utensils and gadgets. This also eliminates the issue of sliding organizers that aren’t anchored down.
- Wastebasket and Recycling Bins – Do you ever wish you could hide your trash can? Maybe it smells a little funny sometimes, or perhaps you just don’t like looking at it. Stow it underneath one of your kitchen countertops in a storage space disguised as a matching cabinet. Use a pull-out drawer to conveniently access your trash can and your recycling bin.
- Hidden Storage – Older homes have many hidden spaces that can be transformed into storage. Oftentimes, cabinet spaces can be expanded and re-purposed to store everything from pots and pans to linens to wine bottles. Narrow pull-out cabinet drawers are the perfect place to store slender items that don’t need refrigeration.
