As any homeowner will understand, there’s no such thing as too much storage space – especially in the kitchen. Whether you’re prepping to sell your house, or simply trying to reorganize, it’s always a good idea to make the most of what you have and use your space as efficiently as possible. Here are a few tips for adding storage space to your kitchen, which can help to make it look clean and tidy, and improve the functionality of your home’s most popular living space.
1. Install some corner drawers. While this storage solution needs to be handled by a professional contractor, corner drawers can give you added storage and utilize that unused wall space.
2. Add end-cabinet shelving. If the end of your kitchen cabinet or island juts out into the room, consider adding built-in shelving to the end of it. With this added storage space, you can have more room to store small appliances, dishes, or cookbooks for easy access.
3. Build shallow roll-out drawers. Shallow drawers can be built above your deeper drawers, allowing you to easily store small utensils and kitchen gadgets that can get lost or jumbled in deep drawers.
4. Install pull-out spice racks. These narrow racks pull directly out of the wall, keeping your spices upright, organized, easy to find when you need them, and hidden from view when you don’t!
5. Use your backsplash to hang large items. If your backsplash is empty, install small hooks and use it to hang large cooking utensils, pots, or pans. You can even set up a magnetized knife strip!
6. Try built-in knife storage. Speaking of knives — in-counter knife storage looks like a slit in the surface of your counter. This allows you to store your knives so that the blades are hidden and the handles protrude from the counter for easy grabbing.
Hopefully these tips will inspire you to make use of seemingly useless space in your kitchen! For more information on preparing your home for sale, contact the helpful real estate agents at Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers!
