Tips for Utilizing & Maximizing Cabinet Space
Ask San Antonio homeowners what complaints they may have about their home and you're likely to hear a lot of grumblings about not having enough space. What most people don't realize is there's usually plenty of available space, it's the manner in which it's being used that makes the difference.
The average home has lots of space that's being misused and, as a result, wasted. Learning how to better use the existing custom cabinet space you already have can make a world of difference.
Top Tips to Make More Room in Your Cabinets
Maybe you've been cursed with a small kitchen or maybe you just seem to have more things than cabinet space. Either way, here are some pointers that could help you with this issue:
- You may have big, spacious cabinets, and maybe even have a lot of them. However, once they're filled with odds and ends it can make you feel disorganized and stressed. This is the ideal opportunity to add additional shelves inside some of the larger cabinets. It's a great way to make better use of the existing space.
- Or, what about a shelf or two outside of the cabinets? If your cabinets don't go all the way to the ceiling, this is perfect for a shelf as long as it looks organized since it will be visible. Or, put one to the side of the cabinetry for those items you use the most and need to keep handy.
- Those magnetic strips generally used for knives can hold other items. Add a strip inside the cabinets where you keep pots and pans and keep the lids or other metal utensils on these strips.
- Possibly the biggest waste of space in the kitchen is the inside of your cabinet doors. Use hooks or over the door racks to store dish towels, the lids to your plastic food storage containers, and shopping bags.
