When it comes to any kitchen, storage is crucial. Some people seeking to improve their kitchen storage capacity will opt for kitchen renovations in Adelaide, which can remodel a kitchen equipped with added cabinets, pull-outs, drawers, and even a pantry for additional storage.
However, if you’re not yet ready to invest in renovations and extensions, you can take a look at reorganising your storage instead. Here are a few practical storage solutions that can effectively revamp the way you keep and manage things in your kitchen.
1. A Spice Drawer
Having a spice rack is one of those common features of a kitchen. But spice racks can also take up valuable counter space. For a more minimalistic look, a spice drawer may be a great option with suitable tiers to organise your spices. It can also provide easy visibility and access to the spice you are looking for.
2. Containers and Jars Are Your Friends
The vast majority of us typically just store food items in the packages that they come in. It’s quicker and it’s easier, but is it really better? For the sake of organisation, aesthetic appeal, and to keep food lasting longer, storing foods in containers and jars is a much better option. You can keep pasta noodles, spices, sugar, or anything else that you use with regularity in an easily stackable, organisable container. This will enable better access to foods and better food preservation over the long haul. You will be thankful that you made this switch when you realise that items are easier to find and that they stay fresher, too!
3. Use Cabinet Doors
Perhaps the most overlooked area for maximising space is on the inside of cabinet doors. This can get a little tricky depending on the size of the space between the inside of the door and the inside of the cabinet, but is certainly a possibility to look at. Using the inner side of cabinet doors is often an easy and effective way to add storage for smaller items such as spices and tea bags. Even cutting boards and certain utensils can neatly nest on a shelf on the inside the door. This helps to keep things where they are best kept – out of sight and out of mind, so your kitchen and mind can be clear.
4. Invest In Fitted Storage
With bespoke fitted kitchens cabinets, you can create a space that’s customised to fit your kitchen and optimally provide storage. Fitted storage is versatile and can accommodate nearly everything, from your cooking utensils to food. You can even invest in adjustable railings and shelves that offer a level of flexibility for your kitchen that can adjust to your changing needs.
5. Hanging Storage for Pots and Pans
If your pots and pans are large, bulky, and take up a lot of precious storage space, it may be a good idea to consider hanging your pots and pans on a suitable rack or pegboard. This is another great way to save cabinet space while also keeping everyday items within reach. You can hang pots and pans overhead, on a mounted pegboard on a wall or even under a table or island counter.
6. Install Floating Shelves
Floating shelves can be easily installed anywhere in the kitchen where there is wall space and can provide you with convenient access to regularly used utensils and foods, or even your favourite cookbooks. You could also store other items such as plates, bowls, or show off your mug collection! By utilising unused vertical space with easy-to-install floating shelves, you can create the additional storage areas you need for your kitchen.
