An organized kitchen is extremely helpful when you are cooking dinner for your family or hosting a dinner party for guests. One of the best ways to organize your kitchen is to maximize your cabinet use and placement. Whether you are looking to remodel your existing kitchen or getting ready to customize a new luxury property with Camelot Homes, the right cabinet organization makes a difference.
Here are four top tips to help you organize your kitchen cabinets:
- Capture the Corners
A corner cabinet carousel makes it easy to fully maximize a space that can easily become lost as pantry items or food storage containers get pushed to the back, far out of reach and soon forgotten. A corner cabinet with built-in carousel allows for quick access to anything stored in this space. Some corner cabinet carousels even swing out, which is ideal for storing everything from pots to casserole dishes.
- Deep Drawers and Slim Cabinets
When planning a reorganization of the kitchen or designing a new one, remember that cabinet diversification is important. Your upper and lower cabinets don’t have to be the same size. Consider adding deep drawers near the stovetop for pots, pans and skillets. These drawers typically are part of the lower system of cabinets and are also great for holding dishes. Use a divider to keep plates and bowls separate. And for faster unloading, place this type of drawer closest to the dishwasher.
A slim cabinet with built-in dividers keeps baking sheets, cooling racks and platters/trays neatly organized. Another idea for slim spaces is a pull-out spice cabinet installed near the range. This keeps your spices handy and visible when you are cooking.
- Sink Pull-Outs
Although it can be a challenge to organize around the pipes and bottom of the sink, with the right cabinet accessories, this space can be maximized. Sliding baskets and stackable wire shelves can be used as storage space for essentials like dish soap, sponges and cleaning cloths. Another option is to use the space for hidden waste containers that roll out.
- Maximize Vertical Wall Space
Open cabinets create visual interest in the room, allowing you to display favorite dishes and glassware. Maximize your vertical wall space in the kitchen with open cabinets that expose neatly stacked plates, bowls and serving dishes. White cabinetry filled with colorful dishes adds to the room’s look and feel. This is also a great way to show off your beautiful stemware.
