The kitchen is the central part of the home that needs to hold a lot of things. Most people can never seem to have too much space in there. If you are running low on room in your kitchen, use these tips and tricks to give you some much needed storage.
Use Your Overhead Space
Pots and pans take up a lot of valuable cabinet space. Consider investing in an overhead rack to hang up pots, pans, utensils, and other items that take up a lot of storage. This is a great way to free up space on the shelves and add a modern look to your kitchen at the same time.
Organize Drawers with Inserts
We all have drawers that are cluttered in the kitchen. If you have a hard time sorting through your utensils, it’s time to get some drawer inserts. They are great to organize your utensils and free up some valuable space in your drawers. Use them to organize your junk drawers and other cutlery as well.
Magic of Magnets
Magnets are great for decorating the fridge, but they can be functional too. Use the power of magnets to your advantage to store smaller items on the side of the fridge. You can get small magnetized racks for storing things like spices, or get something bigger out of the way like a knife block with a magnetic side.
Maximize the Wine Rack
Ideally, wine racks were made to hold wine. But do you have enough wine bottles to keep it full? If not, use your wine rack to store other bottles. Putting things like water bottles and olive oils on there can free up a ton of space. It’s a great way to make something you already have more functional, and it adds a unique look to your home!
Cutting Board Combo
Lack of counter space is one of the biggest issues in a tight kitchen. You are always having to shuffle things around to make everything fit, which can be very inconvenient when using a cutting board. This can be a simple fix by getting a cutting board that fits over your sink. That way you will always have room to do your chopping and the lack of space won’t be inconvenient.
It can seem challenging to fit everything you want in your kitchen. However, there are several tips and hacks to make the most use of the space you have. If you’re considering upgrading to a home with a more spacious kitchen, contact me and I will be happy to help you.
