No matter what the size of your kitchen is, chances are you could use a little help with keeping it organized. There’s rarely ever enough space in a kitchen, and the addition of a new set of pans or an appliance can force you to re-organize the entire space. Between food, dishes, and appliances, it’s very easy to run out of room in your kitchen.
So what can you do to keep the space organized and manageable? At JAW’s Contracting, we work on lots of kitchens, and our professional St. Helens remodeling contractors have put together some creative design tips that can help you out.Here are a few ideas for additions or alterations to your kitchen that help you keep it easily organized:
Lazy Susans are a great way to maximize the amount of space you have for storage in your St. Helens kitchen. Installing a lazy Susan in a cabinet with multiple levels can double the amount of storage space that you’re able to get out of a cabinet by allowing you to utilize the back and sides easily and efficiently. The 360° design allows you access of all of the space of your cabinet.This is a popular choice for corner cabinets especially, where space is frequently sparse and underused, and this a great way to store pot and pans, which can otherwise be an organization nightmare.
One popular variation of the cabinet is an upright storage space. Sheet pans, baking pans, or even large cutting boards often don’t have a clear a place to be stored, and they’ll end up taking up more space than they need to by being laid out flat on a shelf. A thinner, taller cabinet is a great place to keep these items. Here, they can stored upright and they won’t take up unnecessary space in your cabinets.
Pot and Pan Lid Storage
One of the most difficult parts of kitchen organization is finding a good place for pot and pan lids. The pots and pans are typically stacked, so their lids wind up in a little pile off to the side. So what can you do? Our kitchen remodeling experts can help solve this problem with some creative design. Underneath the shelf that you store your pots and pans on, we’ll install a small roll-out drawer. So your lids can always be right beneath your pots and pans. This will free up storage space and make your entire kitchen much easier to organize.
