Kitchen storage is essential for any well-organized and functional cooking space. A well-organized kitchen isn’t just about aesthetics – it’s your space for stress-free cooking and seamless meal prep.
Without enough storage or storage that doesn’t work, your kitchen can quickly become cluttered and chaotic, making it difficult to find what you need when you need it. So whether you’re looking for ways to upgrade your current kitchen or you’re planning a complete remodel, at Birch Tree Design and Remodeling, we have learned a few things we can share with you on creating space saving solutions in designing or remodeling your kitchen.
How to Assess Your Current Kitchen Storage Needs
Assessing your current kitchen is the first step toward creating a functional and organized space. Consider the following:
- Take inventory of the items in your kitchen – It will help you to see what you have and where it’s currently stored. Pay attention to small appliances and when and how often you use them.
- Identify the areas where you’re running out of space – It could be in your cabinets, drawers, pantry, or even on your countertops.
- Consider the types of items you need to store – Do you have a lot of pots and pans? Foodstuffs? Dishes and cutlery? Appliances? Once you know what you need and want to store, this will guide some of your design decisions as you look for storage solutions that are specifically designed for those items.
- Think about how much storage space you need – Depending on the size of your kitchen and the work flow pattern, you can decide what is essential to be stored out of sight but handy to get to and what can be stored for occasional use.
A kitchen remodel is a great opportunity to add more storage space to your kitchen. There are a number of different ways to do this, depending on your needs and budget. There are lots of products that have been designed to offer homeowners a better way to store and access their kitchen things.
Here are a few of the most popular ways to add storage during a kitchen remodel:
Cabinets are a classic way to add storage to a kitchen. You can add cabinets to the walls, under the counters, or even in the ceiling.
Pull-out shelves are a great way to maximize the space in your cabinets. They make it easy to see and access all of your belongings.
Vertical space is often overlooked when it comes to storage. You can use vertical space to store things like spices, cookbooks, and even pots and pans. You may even install a rack from the ceiling to display and access pots and pans.
If you can’t find a product to fit, a good remodel can custom build storage solutions for your kitchen. This could include things like drawers, shelves, and even a pantry.
Working with your designer, you can choose the right storage solutions for your kitchen remodel. Your designer will need to incorporate them into your kitchen design. This means considering the placement of the cabinets, drawers, pantry, and shelves. Designing the kitchen for good workflow includes making placement of storage easy to access and use.
