Out of all the rooms in a home, the kitchen is the area that can become the most cluttered and overwhelming. And when it comes to finding more space, many resources out there will recommend getting rid of small appliances, tools, and items that you don’t need. But, what if you use all of the items in your kitchen and you still find yourself limited in space?
Oftentimes, the problem is not how many items you have or that you’re disorganized, but can indicate an issue with the overall storage system. If you take a look at your pantry and cabinets and you see a lot of overhead space that is not being used, then the solution would be to maximize the space you do have.
This guide is for the homeowner who wants to do some serious organizing and is looking to invest in custom shelving to utilize every inch of their kitchen storage space. Here are 4 ways to make more room in your kitchen.
Most kitchens in Calgary feature a pantry with generic shelving, top and bottom cabinets, under-the-sink storage, and some drawers in-between. The issue with this is that our needs shift over time and you can see how life progresses by how we use our kitchen and the items we acquire over the years.
For example, new parents may need to reach for their InstaPot more often to prepare quick meals. Suddenly, you need extra storage space to accommodate baby bottles, children’s bowls, cups, and cutlery. Or perhaps you’ve taken up a love of baking and have added new small appliances to your collection, like a mixer and baking tools.
The beauty of adjustable shelves is that you can alter the layout of your pantry and cabinets based on your needs at the moment. You can adjust shelving to perfectly fit items so that there is no empty overhead space above and customize to your liking.
With custom roll-out shelving, you can utilize every inch of space in your pantry and cabinets without having to dig through items at the front to get to the ones in the back.
One of the benefits of roll-out shelving is that you can quickly and easily look at all the products you have. Sometimes, when items are way in the back or aren’t visible, we end up buying the same products without realizing that we already have what we needed. This leads to more clutter and more storage space used. Roll-out drawers save you time, effort, and money and make using your kitchen that much more enjoyable.
One of the most valuable organizational tools is a Lazy Susan, which is basically a platform that rotates. We can take this same concept and expand it so that a corner of your pantry, cabinet, or even a dedicated area in your kitchen becomes a rotating storage solution. This is a smart and efficient way to use every inch of storage space and eliminates the often wasted corner of shelving.
Do you use a lot of canned goods? Are you a wine lover? Do you need a dedicated area for baking tools and ingredients? One of the best things about having customized accessories is that they are tailored to your needs. While pre-made organizational solutions from a big box store can get the job done, they may not make sense for your lifestyle and interests – or even fit your pantry or cabinets, for that matter.
When working with professional cabinet and organizational experts, you have a designer who will create a plan based on the layout and size of your kitchen pantry and cabinets. The process becomes an investment that will pay off in the long run, including increasing the value of your home and giving you a tidy kitchen free of constraint and clutter.
The kitchen. Your hub for meal preparation, miscellaneous storage, and familial gatherings. With such responsibilities placed on a single room, it makes sense that you’d want to have it as clean and spotless as possible. Although there are many ways to reach that unblemished condition, one method in particular is especially useful: cabinet refacing. The […]
Your closet. The storage solution that’s used daily but rarely receives the care it deserves for the utility it provides. And this is evident in how Canadians treat their closets like an afterthought. However, closet organization is not an impossible task, it’s just one we’ve learned to let fall by the wayside. But if you’re […]
Spring is back. And as Canadians, there are few things we look forward to more than warmer weather, longer days, and outdoor activities. But this is also the time of year when our accommodations could most use a top to bottom clean. After being cooped up in our homes all winter, it’s a necessary evil. […]
Countertops. So important yet so often taken for granted. Your countertops are a contributing factor that helps add continuity as well as a sense of “completion” to your kitchen. Imagine how barren your kitchen would be without the finishing touches provided by the smooth elegance of a high-quality countertop. Every kitchen needs countertops. However, you […]
Now that 2022 is well underway, it’s the perfect time to get busy working on those New Year’s Resolutions you promised to improve the quality of your life. Although many people set intentions such as starting a gym routine or dispensing with bad habits, one common New Year’s resolution is more organization. And for good […]
With the right storage solutions, your kitchen can be a place that you look forward to cooking in.
