8 Ways to Get the Most Out Of Your Kitchen Storage

Many people regard the kitchen as the heart of the home. This is the place where meals are made, family and friends bond over food and our body, mind, and soul is refuelled. 

That’s why your kitchen design should be functional. In particular, it needs to provide enough storage for your kitchen items and ingredients. Here are eight kitchen storage ideas to help you get the most out of your kitchen:

1. Use your vertical space

If you run out of space in your kitchen cabinets and on your counter tops, you can add extra storage by hanging rails or hooks on your walls. Using your vertical spaces or walls is an effective storage solution.

2. Kitchen Islands

Whether you have a small or a large kitchen, it’s worth measuring to see if you can fit a kitchen island. A kitchen island is a very versatile piece of furniture, offering counter space and extra storage.

3. See-through containers

If you have a lot of mismatched boxes and containers of food, organising them can be a challenge. Transfer your food items into see-through Tupperware-style containers or jars so they're easier to stack and organise. Don’t forget to put on labels so you can identify which is which.

4. Install corkboards inside your kitchen cabinets

Maximise every space you have in your kitchen by installing a corkboard inside a kitchen cabinet. You can hang light items like measuring cups, or pin recipes and coupons.

5. Magnetic spice jars

Organise your spice jars by gluing magnets to individual spices. You can then hang them on the side of the fridge. Hanging small baskets is another idea. Make sure to glue a strong enough magnet so it won’t fall.

6. Use a pocket organiser

A pocket organiser or a shoe organiser made to be hung behind a door can store some of your ingredients. Make use of any space to hang an organiser, either behind a kitchen cabinet or a door.

7. Add a kitchen cart

Kitchen carts can be used as an extra prep space, plus they’re mobile furniture. So if you’re not using it you can simply move it to the side until you need it again. Make sure to pick a cart that has drawers in in for extra storage.

8. Keep your kitchen clean

Lastly, the most important kitchen storage idea is to declutter your kitchen. This will help make your kitchen space organised, clean, and feel larger than it is. Remember to always put everything where it belongs after use and get rid of any expired food to minimise clutter.

Keep these eight tips in mind so you can get the most out of your kitchen storage.
