3 Ways To Add Storage Space In Your Kitchen

If there’s one thing that almost all homeowners will say about their kitchen, it’s this: “There’s not enough storage space”. Unfortunately, kitchen appliances and other cookware can take up a lot of room, leaving little space for anything else.

Luckily, there are many different ways to add storage space to your kitchen. Here are 3 ways to add storage space in your kitchen.

1. Add a kitchen island

One way to instantly add more counter space AND more cabinet/storage space at the same time is to add a kitchen island to your floor plan, like the one pictured below.

Kitchen islands come in a variety of sizes, shapes, materials, and with numerous different features. There are both permanent and non-permanent options, and kitchen islands can vary widely in price.

The basic features are the same throughout all islands. There is a counter and then some type of storage space in the form of drawers and cabinets. Some will have other features like a knife block or even electric outlets built in so that you can plug in a microwave, coffee maker, blender, or some other appliance.

Adding a kitchen island, no matter what size or price will surely add plenty of storage space, and counter space.

2. Add Removable hooks to hang pots and pans

Pots and pans can be a pain to store, and this is especially true if you have a lot of cookware. Usually, pots, pans, and other bakeware gets stored underneath the countertops, in the bottom level cabinets.

The problem is, that this takes up a lot of space, and other things could be stored there. Plus, there’s a better way to do it.

You can easily store most pots and pans by putting up removable hooks to hang the cookware by its handle. There are several places that you can hang these hooks, including the side paneling on the wall, the side of the refrigerator, and even the inside lining of the cabinets.

By doing this, you can free up some storage space for other items, and keep your pots and pans easily accessible so that you can use them whenever you want.

3. Utilize the space underneath the upper cabinets

One place that often gets overlooked is the area right underneath the upper cabinets. By using the bottom outside of the cabinets, we can use hooks to hang things like coffee mugs, or even a magnetic strip system with spice jars being attached to it by a metal lid.

Using this space allows you to get every last square inch of your kitchen utilized and will clear up room in the cabinets for other things to be stored. Plus, it makes grabbing a clean coffee mug quick and easy and allows spices to be at the ready for whenever you make breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

There are plenty of ways to add storage space to your kitchen, and to better use the space you already have. These are just a few storage hacks for your kitchen, and hopefully, this will help you better organize and enjoy your kitchen and your home.
