Choosing stock cabinets for your kitchen may save you money as well as time since you will not have to wait for them to be built. But you may want to consider purchasing a few custom cabinets for those odd-sized spaces or the areas where you want to maximize the functionality and storage in your kitchen. Many homeowners underestimate the number of cabinets they will need and end up unhappy with that portion of their remodeled kitchen.
Here are 5 ways that you can add extra storage, functionality, and style to your kitchen:
Pull-out Shelves in Cabinets
Instead of continuing to dig through your cabinets to find the baking dish or pot that you are looking for, we recommend installing pull-out shelves inside your cabinets. You will then be able to pull them out when you are looking for something as well as when you are putting items away. You will no longer find yourself opening the door and shoving things inside hoping for the best.
Imagine opening your drawers and finding them all organized all the time. This is possible if you have them custom-made with sections that will hold everything that you put into them. If you have a cook top that is separate from your oven, we recommend that you install a drawer underneath it that will hold all your cooking utensils.
You no longer need to store all your food in a separate pantry. We recommend that you install a drawer or two that have individual sections for storing snacks. If you place this drawer in an easy to get to space, you will not have everyone asking you what they can eat or where it is. Instead, they can go to the drawer and pull out whatever is in there. The individual sections will keep everything upright and in its place.
Spice racks can be installed as either tall and thin cabinets or shallow drawers and you can choose the one that will work best in your kitchen space. When you install one of these for all your spices, you will never find yourself digging around in your pantry looking for the correct spice.
Coffee and Tea Storage
Instead of storing your coffee and tea on the counter or on the other side of the room in a cabinet, we recommend that you have a drawer that can hold all those items. You can place the drawer under your coffeepot, where you will be able to reach it easily.
As you are planning your new kitchen space, you will want to find a way to store everything while making it functional at the same time. If you do this the correct way, you will find that your kitchen is more stylish too, because everything will not be out in the open. Instead you will have the room to place small items around for even more visual appeal.
