7 Kitchen Storage Solutions: How to Fit More in Less Space
The kitchen is one of, if not the most important room in most homes. In order for it to be as efficient as possible, the kitchen needs to be smartly designed so that every space is capable of being utilized to the fullest. Unfortunately, in a lot of older homes, kitchen storage wasn't a priority so it is left to the homeowner to come up with their own creative kitchen storage solutions.
Southland's Atlanta GA home builders know a thing or two about ingenious kitchen design. The following represents seven ways homeowners of older houses can fit more in less space.
Use a Rolling Cart "Island": Spacious kitchens can easily accommodate an island for extra prep space and storage but smaller kitchens simply don't have the floor space for a permanent installation. Using a rolling cart can help solve that problem. This type of cart is portable, lightweight, and it can be parked up against the wall so it will be out of the way when not in use.
Use a Pot Rack: Pots and pans take up a lot of cabinet space. If there is a lack of storage real estate for the pots and pans, install a wall or ceiling pot rack and the cookware will not only be out of the cabinets, but they'll be easier to find and reach.
Downsize the Appliances: When redesigning a small kitchen, consider purchasing a slimline dishwasher or oven. This will allow for more cabinets in the design.
Install Vertical Storage: If the kitchen is small, but the ceiling is high, then install additional cabinets above the existing ones for storing all of the lesser-used equipment and dishes. Install a library ladder, the type that rolls along a track which will provide easy access to the lesser-used items.
Thin Spaces for Thin Storage: Most kitchens have slivers of "dead" spaces that can be turned into smart storage. These areas can be turned into slide-out spice racks or a convenient place to hold the baking sheets.
Install a Magnetic Knife Rack: Rather than using a bulky, counter space hogging knife block or filling up a drawer with sharp knives, install a magnetic knife rack on a wall near where most of the cutting, chopping, and slicing happens. This keeps the knives neatly organized, easy to reach, and out of harm's way.
Use the Back of Cabinet Doors: The cabinet under the sink can often become disorganized and inefficient. Using a hanger shelf on the back of the cabinet doors will provide easy and organized access to the under-counter essentials.
