Kitchen Cupboard Storage Space

Kitchens are the one place where families can gather to cook, clean, eat and socialise all at once. It’s no wonder they’re often referred to as the heart of the home! But with so many activities taking place in the kitchen, it can feel as though there isn’t enough space to fit it all in. If your kitchen is a little cluttered or lacking in space, read on as we share our top kitchen storage tips.

1. Drawer Compartments

Our first tip is to divide your kitchen cupboard drawers into smaller ‘compartments’. Each compartment can then house items of similar function or size. This is especially useful for storing those odds and ends that seem to have no place of their own. Storing your tools and utensils in this way also makes it quick and easy to find them. There are plenty different ways to divide a drawer. One convenient solution is our wooden drawer organisers which feature five fixed dividing trays. You could also make your own moveable dividers using cardstock or craft board.

2. Multi-Purpose Kitchenware

Small kitchens can look quite disorganized with loads of different appliances and utensils. Multipurpose kitchenware can help reduce this clutter, create more space and simplify your life too! Take our multifunctional bread bin for example. This trendy bread bin doubles up as a cutting board, so you can save on kitchen counter space while still keeping your baked goods as fresh as possible.

3. Wall-Mounted Storage

Wall-mounted storage racks are an ideal solution for limited kitchen counter space. Not only can they store many different items, but you can also place them right where you need them. For example, mount your spice rack close to the stove so your herbs and spices are within easy reach while cooking. Besides for their fantastic functionality, colourful storage racks can even form part of your kitchen décor.

4. Open Shelving

Our next tip is to install open shelving. These shelves help open up a space so it feels brighter and airier. Open shelves will increase your storage options for tableware and other items that take up valuable kitchen counter space, such as biscuit jars, recipe books and herb planters. Open shelves are also incredibly easy to organize and, because everything is in clear sight, everyone can find what they need with ease.

5. Wasted Spaces

Take a look around your kitchen for wasted spaces that you can put to good use. Some of the more obvious areas include the space on top of kitchen cupboards or below overhanging counters or cupboards. You can also give yourself more space by hanging pots, pans and cooking utensils from the ceiling or on the inside of kitchen cupboard doors.
