Ways to increase storage in your kitchen
Ways to increase storage in the kitchen during a renovation
Adding storage to a kitchen offers numerous benefits that can enhance functionality, organization, and overall satisfaction in your cooking space. Whether your goal is to reduce clutter and stress or better preserve your food, there’s no better time to increase kitchen storage than during a complete renovation of the space.
Upgrade Your Kitchen’s Cabinetry
One of the best ways to maximize kitchen storage during a renovation is through cabinetry upgrades. You can install taller cabinets that extend to the ceiling to make use of vertical space, incorporate pull-out shelves and trays inside cabinets for easier access to items and corner cabinet Lazy Susans to optimize space in hard-to-reach areas. Adding a roll-out pantry or pull-out pantry shelves for storing canned goods, spices, and other items is also a great option. When it comes to drawers, you can use drawer dividers and organizers to keep utensils, cutlery, and small items well-organized, and deep drawers to store pots, pans, and larger kitchen items.
Add a Pantry or Shelving
If space allows, build a walk-in pantry with shelving and storage for dry goods and kitchen appliances. You can also convert a nearby closet into a pantry, optimizing storage for food and small appliances. If you’re working with limited space, install floating shelves on unused wall space for additional storage and to display decorative items or cookbooks.
Get Creative with Your Kitchen Storage
Utilizing sink and window space is also a great option. You can add a tilt-out tray in front of the sink to store sponges, scrubbers, and dish soap. If there’s a window with space below, consider creating a window seat with storage underneath. Other options to consider include adding storage in the island along with storage above the island to make use of otherwise wasted space.
When planning your kitchen renovation, work with a design-build firm to maximize your storage space while maintaining a functional and aesthetically pleasing kitchen layout. Careful organization and the use of space-saving solutions can help you make the most of your kitchen storage during the renovation.
