Ideas to Maximise the Storage in your Kitchen

Posted by on November 20, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off on Ideas to Maximise the Storage in your Kitchen

Adequate storage is essential for any kitchen space.  Having room for everything keeps your kitchen looking tidy and makes preparing food easier.  Here, we’ve listed some of the best ways to maximise the storage space in your kitchen.

Wall Space

Making the most of your walls is a great way to keep things stored.  You can use the walls in a variety of ways, standard units, extra tall units, shelving, hanging pots and pans on a rack and knives on a magnetic strip.  The ceiling can also be used to hang pots and pans.

Maximise the Awkward Corner Space

There are many new ideas to make the most of awkward corner spots in your cupboards.  No more reaching into the back of the cupboard to find what you are looking for; just swing out chrome baskets, pull out shelves or turn a carousel.  Make the most of the dead space on the back of the door with hooks for small kitchen items and towels, racking for saucepan lids or even your spice jars.

Use of Baskets

Wicker baskets are a useful tool for storage, whilst adding a design feature and breaking up the look of a long row or cupboards or drawers.

Utilising the Worktop

Maximising your storage space is essential to be able to keep a clear worktop area.  A chopping board that fits over the sink will free up counter space when preparing food.  Pull-out chopping boards can also be installed.  Another way of keeping this space clear is keeping appliances such as toasters, kettles and microwaves in pull-out or concealed cupboards. You give yourself much more space for preparation but still have easy access to your appliances whenever they are needed.
