It’s All About the Cabinets
Take Extra Time to Consider Where to Store Your Dishes
Keep Your Drawers Organized
Stack When You Can
There is no area in your kitchen that is more valuable for storage space than your cabinets. This is not news to anyone, but we find that many homeowners do not act accordingly. Every single inch of your cabinets should be well utilized. Add multiple-shelf units to your cabinets, movable trays, and other additions that can make it simple and easy to use every square inch of space in your cabinets.
Dishes are one of the most difficult aspects of your kitchen when it comes to organizing. Why? Because dishes take up a lot of space yet they are used every day. You want to keep them nearby, but this means giving up a lot of cabinet space. There are many solutions to this, such as adding dishes storage to your countertop, installing hooks for coffee cups and wine glasses, and storing less-often-used dishes away from your kitchen.
Do you have a junk drawer in your kitchen where you throw the miscellaneous items that don’t have a home? If so, get it out of your kitchen. There is surely a room in your home that has an extra drawer – don’t waste one in your kitchen. You can also buy organization trays to make your cabinet drawers more space-effective. For example, you can stack short organization trays one on top of each other and effectively double your space.
It’s not always possible to stack but if you, do it. Buy bowls that match so that you can stack them. Stack larger plates underneath smaller plates. Choose coffee mugs that can be stacked. It’s such a simple thing but, as we mentioned above, if you make every inch of your cupboards and cabinets count, you will get the most from the room you have.
