When it comes to kitchens, one of the most important elements to maintain beauty and functionality is storage. To keep things as organized as possible leaving the heart of your home clutter-free and pleasing to the eye, enough space to stash away all your cooking and dining items should be ensured. With this said, this article discusses how to achieve more storage with kitchen cabinets.

Cabinet Organizers

Adding more storage does not necessarily mean more or bulkier kitchen cabinets. Making use of what you already have is the smartest way to efficiently add space. Try to open your cabinet doors and look at your cupboards and shelves to see how things are arranged. Here are some tips on how you can organize the contents better:

1. Take out items that are in bulky packaging and keep them in stackable containers instead.
2. When shopping for containers opt for clear ones so that you can easily distinguish what is inside without having to take out contents of the cabinet.
3. Get rid or rounded containers and replace them with rectangular or square ones.
4. Avoid frustration when looking for items by placing often used things in easy to access cabinets and group things together such as one place for all utensils, another entirely for food, etc.
5. Consider buying and integrating innovative cabinet organizers into drawers and kitchen cabinets. Such products include: Utensil Drawer Organizer, Utility Cookware Divider, , Knife Block Drawer Organizer, Base Filler Pull-Out, and Single or Double Base Waste Basket Pull-Out

Window Seats

Accentuate your windows while adding more storage with low base kitchen cabinets as window seats. Other than extending the space where you can keep your items, you will also be adding to the stylishness of the area. Just make sure to create oneness in the design by implementing the same finish or repainting your windows to complement with the new window seat cabinets and build units with the exact sill height and width of the window.

Beyond Standards

When adding kitchen cabinets to achieve more storage, skip the standard sized wall and base cabinets (not unless you have all the floor area that you need). There are types and constructions that allow homeowners to enjoy more storage without taking up too much space.
• Sideboards are perfect for keeping small items such as utensils or linens and can be placed anywhere since these units are free-standing.
• For your appliance cabinet needs, choose from different sized oven cabinets.
• Tall pantries are ideal for general storage that takes up minimal floor area due to their height.
• Free standing kitchen islands can be used in many different ways aside from holding cookware and other items. These can also be used as a breakfast table, or an extension to your counters.
• Lazy Susan cabinet helps maximize use of space by allowing easier and more convenient access.
• Drawer base kitchen cabinets are specially designed to better organize smaller items such as cutting tools, utensils, and cooking spatulas.
