Your kitchen area is one of the busiest areas in your home, and it can be difficult to find extra storage for all your equipment and knick knacks. Don’t let the initial size of your kitchen dissuade you; there are many simple ways you can add extra storage in your kitchen area and make it more organized and free of clutter. Let Handyman Connection of Butler Warren share some tips.
Maximize Your Stove Range
The space above your stove is one of the most overlooked parts of your kitchen. We suggest installing some shelves here or even a holder so that your utensils will always be on-hand when you start cooking. If you’re planning to install a wooden shelf, make sure it’s a few feet away from the stove itself; you can place the equipment holder closer since most are made of metal and have better heat resistance.
Invest in a Hollow Island
Hollow islands are free-standing cabinets, and some of them have wheels that allow you to move them easily. If your cabinets area already filled to the brim, a hollow island maybe all you need to store your other kitchen equipment and knick knacks. It’s also the best place to store cookbooks and baskets.
Buy Some Baskets
Speaking of baskets, we suggest investing in some if you’re starved for storage. Baskets, especially woven ones, seamlessly blend in almost any kitchen space so don’t be afraid to buy several for your kitchen. The best part about them is that they’re portable, so you can move them away if necessary to free up some space.
Maximize Sink Space
Finally, we suggest you maximize your sink space. Make sure the things you put here are what you use in your sink though, such as sponges and scrubbers. A dish holder is also a good idea, especially if you need more storage for your plates.
