If you’re a cook who dreams of more elbow room in your kitchen, these clever storage solutions can provide it to suit any décor or style, combining beauty and efficiency to help keep your kitchen clutter-free. From compartmented dividers and lazy Susans to dedicated drawers for spices, baking supplies, pots and pans, or vegetables, these solutions have something for every kitchen.
Custom-designed drawers have shelves for lids and plenty of depth for the pots and pans beneath them—or are fitted out with pegs to house unique china, with spaces perfectly suited to each square plate, bowl, and saucer. Spaces like these are an ideal way to both protect your good dishes and keep your above-counter cabinets free for other items.
Terrific Kitchen Ideas to Save Space
For narrow spaces between larger cabinets or next to appliances, vertical storage is the way to go: racks can hold canned goods or dry goods, staples, or cleaning supplies. A pullout drawer stores glass spice jars laid out in one layer easy access. Veteran bakers will adore the deep drawer that not only handles baking pans and mixer accessories but baking staples such as flours, sugars, and chips in transparent-topped metal built-in canisters. Leave behind the clutter of a breadbox on your counter with a drawer that protects the bread’s freshness and holds the cutting board. Drawer dividers can be made to fit long utensils such as wooden spoons or expand to hold everything from your cutlery to your timer. So take a look at these clever storage solutions: one or more of them can make your kitchen seem bigger almost instantly!
