There will never be enough space for the new stuff you keep on buying. You will just have to learn to efficiently utilize the space you have. This holds true for the entire home, especially for your kitchen. The harbingers of storage space in the kitchen are its cabinets. If you smartly exploit their space, you won’t have to throw out things unnecessarily or store them in odd places in the kitchen. Read on to know how to intelligently use your kitchen cabinets:
Hang Overhead: A solemn issue with the in-fashion modular kitchens is their lack of surrounding walls as a modular kitchen design is built around the concept of openness. Such a design strikes out the walls of the kitchen to gain space. This in turn results in little space for placing the kitchen’s upper cabinets on. However, an easy fix to this issue is hanging open shelves from the ceiling above the kitchen counter. This lets you store minimally used things in the overhead cabinets and if you build them without doors, it keeps the stored stuff easy to see and easy to access.
Fit an Extra Drawer or a Pull-out: A space-saving trend these days is to place a drawer inside another. This helps in storing different kinds of utensils and cutlery in different sections. The drawers can also be used to divide their constituents based on their usage and occasion. Additionally, you might have marvelled over the space utility of the storage cabinets placed in kitchen corners and more so, you would be happy to know that these corner cabinets can get better at space employment if pull-outs such as a wire pull-out are added into the mix. Available for L-shaped and Straight corner cabinets, pull-outs can be easily attached to the back of the cabinet door and are comfortable to access too.
Install Vertical Cabinets: Horizontal storage in the kitchen is preferable because appliances and utensils used in the cooking room usually acquire more of a horizontal space. However, if the space on the x-axis is limited, cabinets can aim for the y-axis instead i.e. they can be vertical. Vertical cabinets, installed from the ceiling-down, help you accommodate infrequently used stuff by utilizing every inch of available space.
Store inside Doors and Walls: The cabinets and counters can only accommodate so much. An effective idea to store more is to get a pocket cabinet which puts up with small appliances, cutlery, containers, dried food items and maybe even a tiny sink. The same fix can apply to a wall-built cabinet which can be used to accommodate everything from utensils to a microwave or an oven.
Conclusively, kitchen cabinets if utilized intelligently can house all the stuff which has no work being outside all the time and present you with a decluttered and open kitchen which you can use for its real purpose, cooking.
