They say that the kitchen is the heart of a home. It is the place you spend the maximum amount of time, prepare meals, converse, and more. But what happens, when the workhorse of the house doesn’t have enough storage space to keep all the cooking essentials and appliances? Well, you make every inch work extra hard!
To help you up your storage game, we’ve scoured out 9 genius storage tricks that will banish clutter from your kitchen, for good. Check them out!
1. Use the space above the cabinet
If you have unused space above the kitchen cabinet, then use it up to store kitchen essentials. Additionally, you can also use the space to display art, unique artifacts, and cookbooks.
2. Replace corner shelves with a lazy susan
Most of us have this one storage pain point: Not being able to use the far-fetched corner of the cabinets. Tackle it by installing a Lazy Susan. This way, you will be able to shove kitchen utensils at the extreme corner of the cabinets with ease.
3. Make the most of narrow spaces
Narrow corners and other tight spaces may not appear storage-friendly at first. But they’re a ready-to-occupy thin stow-away space for slim things, for example, herb and spice containers or concentrates.
4. Install pot hangers
Kitchen utensils like pots and pans take up considerable space in the kitchen cabinets. Keep them in sight by installing a metal hanger with hooks. This way, you will be able to store them, without hampering the cabinet space. Additionally, you can also hang balcony planters with the help of a metal hanger.
5. Think shallow for small and deep for big items
Assign a shallow cabinet for things like corkscrews, bloom cutters, and a garlic press. This way, you will be able to keep these easily-lost items in one designated space.
6. Hide appliances in kitchen cubbies
Appliances like toaster and mixer grinder consume a significant amount of countertop space. Hence, keeping these items in a cubby or appliance garage is an excellent option to start with.
7. Use hangers to organize dishcloths
Kitchen linens such as tablecloths, napkins, and table runners can make your kitchen appear messy. Keep them sorted by installing a metal organizer in the kitchen. This will not only keep the linens in place and easy-to-find, but also keep the area clutter-free.
8. Create a perch for display items
Another genius way to add storage: Install shelves along the perimeter of the kitchen to display art, artifacts, bone china, and more.
