The kitchen is one of the most used parts of your home.
Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, you want to come to the kitchen for a good meal. That’s why you should pay attention to how this part of the house is organised. Too many property owners ignore it and assume they’re going to be okay by throwing items all over the place. This may work at times but can become doubly confusing when multiple people are walking around doing the same thing.
Instead of letting this happen focus on some practical kitchen storage solutions. Here are the leading options to implement as soon as possible!
1) Pull Out Shelves
Let’s begin with one of those storage solutions everyone should incorporate into their daily setup. The goal is to include pull out shelves in cupboards as this will clear up a lot of the clutter and make things far more organised too. In essence, you’re able to organise what’s put onto these shelves at all times while still being able to spot what you need without having to open drawers.
This is a lot easier than having to remember where you put something in the kitchen. A pull out shelf keeps things simple.
2) Tiered Holders
You should also look for tiered holders that are put on the countertop.
These are stacked solutions that are made to offer access to important items. You’ll have the tiered holder put on the countertop and it will hold kitchen utensils that are needed throughout your time in the kitchen.
Of course, each person will have particular needs when it comes to finding the right holder but it’s best to make sure there’s enough space four those items that will need to be used at various points. It’s always recommended to get one of these for the kitchen!
These are unique and something many modern kitchens are starting to offer.
The idea is to set up risers in the cabinets so you are able to put items underneath or on top without having to waste space. A lot of items can’t be stacked on top of each other without risk (i.e. glasses and plates), which is why a riser is useful. It creates a solid platform that’s halfway up for your important items while still allowing items to be placed underneath in the gap that’s created.
A lot of people like this idea because it’s seamless, beautiful and works as it is supposed to.
4) Drawer Inserts
Most drawers by design are horrible for storage. The old fashioned one level drawer hardly displays the full range if items. In addition to adding risers you can also buy some really good drawer inserts, some are multi level and others are still singular. Regardless of your choice they really help organise your kitchen drawers better and make it easier to find things.
Drawer inserts will keep your drawers organised and you won’t be rummaging around to find the things you want when you need them. I have to admit i’m addicted to drawer organisers, i have them installed in all my drawers throughout the house.
Baskets are one of the simplest storage solutions a person can include in their kitchen and will always work. You can use these to carry towels or other items that are going to be needed throughout your time in the kitchen. Since you will spend so much time in the kitchen, these baskets keep things together and allow you to get rid of clutter that piles up over time. This is an easy-going solution that should be a part of your plan as soon as you begin!
6) Hanging Hooks
Hanging hooks are nice because you’re able to put them up inside cabinets and make sure additional items are fitted into the space. Of course, you will want to find something that’s easy to set up, and offers a good amount of space but there are many viable options on the open market these days. Look for the one that is in line with what you need for the kitchen and have it set up as soon as possible.
You will enjoy the hooks as they are ideal for a number of items that have to be put into place within the kitchen.
7) Shower Caddies
Yes, this is a unique solution that’s used by millions of people around the world. The premise is simple enough. You’re going to take a traditional shower caddie and have it set up somewhere in the kitchen as a way to hold important items (depending on what you need). This is a good way to keep things accessible without having to scour through cabinets and/or drawers in a bid to locate what you need at that point in time. A lot of people enjoy this option because of how useful it is. I’ve even seen them with small timber boxes used as the shelves ( it looked great )
With these kitchen storage solutions, you’re going to be well on your way to organising a seamless kitchen setup that’s worth your time. Anyone that wants to focus on making meaningful changes to their kitchen will know it begins with refined organisation. Otherwise, the kitchen is always going to stay messy and out of sync with your needs as the property owner. Start with these kitchen storage solutions and feel good about the changes you’ve made to the setup. It will be well worth it!
