Storage Trends - Maximizing the Potential of Your Kitchen


Sometimes it seems challenging to find all the space required for glassware, cookware, and cookbooks, not to mention food and all the other paraphernalia one needs in a busy hub station, which describes most kitchens these days. Nevertheless, space does exist. It just takes a little ingenuity and thinking outside the box to find clever ways to maximize your kitchen's storage abilities. In this post, we will discuss 3 different ways to provide more storage space for the kitchen area.

Re-Purpose Old Boxes

When trying to think outside of the box for attractive storage ideas, don't forget to look inside old boxes. Depending on the style of your decor, old wooden crates and boxes look great and can add a rustic touch to your kitchen's design. When placed on their side in strategic areas, they serve to double your counter top space. Paint them to add a splash of color if you like, add some hooks inside to store cups and be sure to use both the top and bottom shelves to store items you want to keep handy.

Revisit Your Windows

Some kitchens have a window that has less than a desirable view to the outside. If you need a bit more privacy and want more storage space, consider adding a railing or two, with hooks, across the window. Hang pans, dish cloths, or anything else you can attach a cord to, and cover up an unattractive view while finding a home for kitchen items at the same time.

Versatile Pegboard

If you have a bare spot on one of your walls, add some pegboard with cup hooks to store lids, pans and/or cooking utensils. Paint it to add a splash of contrasting color or paint the pegboard the same as your wall color to help it blend in.
