If you need some cabinet storage ideas, keep reading!
1. Corner Drawer
Do you ever feel that the corners in your home are a waste of space, especially the ones in the kitchen?
If you feel that way, then you are not utilizing kitchen corner drawers in the right way - or at all for that matter.
A corner drawer can utilize extra space that would otherwise not be used. Since corners usually go deeper, you can use a drawer that is deep and wide as well, so it can hold some of your bigger kitchen items like pots and pans. Using drawers here is better than sticking with a traditional cabinet because things won't get lost as easily.
2. Add a Utensil Drawer
If you're someone who doesn't like to see your utensils on the counter, you can add in a utensil drawer. Rather than having them all lie down so you can't see which ones you have when you want to whip up some eggs or pancakes, you can use a utensil drawer that keeps the utensils vertical.
3. Use a Can Rack
If you are utilizing your cabinet space for kitchen storage of food, then you may know how easy it is to forget about the cans you got three years ago that are now expired.
To ensure this doesn't happen, you can purchase a can rack or a tiered riser so that you can see all of the cans you have. This also works for any other type of food as well, such as pasta sauces, oils, and more.
4. Add a Cookie Sheet Divider
How many times have you gone to bake some cookies or roast sweet potatoes only to have all of them come falling on top of one another?
To avoid this, you could add a cookie sheet divider into your cabinets. When it comes time to use a cookie sheet or two, you won't have to worry about the cookie sheets falling over or falling onto the floor either.
Instead, your cabinet organization will stay pristine.
5. Use Turntables for Ease of Use
Not only is it frustrating when items fall out of your cabinet, but it is also frustrating when you have to dig through the front to get to the things in the back. That's where a turntable can help you out.
Instead of having to do this, all you have to do is spin the turntable to get to things in the back. These are especially useful for oils, vinegars, spices, and other smaller items in your kitchen.
6. Add a Pull-Out Trash and Recycling Bin
Having your trash sit out in the kitchen doesn't always look the best. Or, on the other hand, if you have it put away in the pantry, it can be quite the walk to get to when you simply need to toss something.
That is why putting a pull-out trash and recycling bin into one of your cabinets (whether you are getting new cabinets or not), is a smart idea. You can easily add them to any cabinet that is at least 15 inches wide/
7. Utilize the Under the Sink Space
You have a cabinet under the skin for a reason, which is usually to have access to the sink in case you need to fix something. But there's another reason as well! It adds extra storage to a space.
It can be tricky to organize the sink space, though. With the pipes and sink itself in the way, you can only do so much. But making the best of it can make all of the difference in your kitchen organization.
One idea is to add in a towel rack to store your towel when not using it. You can also add a soap and sponge holder as well behind the door. On the base of the cabinet, you can add metal slide-out drawers that you can easily access.
Consider putting dish towels, extra soap, dishwasher detergent, or something else you need storage for in here.
8. Use a Pan Stacker
Just like your cookie sheets, you may feel that your pans get all messed up every time it comes time to cook. You may also avoid cooking because it creates such a mess.
To avoid the mess, start cooking more, and ensure your cabinet storage is on point, you should use a pan stacker. This makes it easy to grab whatever pan you want to use at the moment without creating a mess.
