Having a kitchen that you love is a big deal. Considering you’ll be using the kitchen more than almost any other room in the house, you deserve to have a kitchen that works for you! Adding functionality to a kitchen is even more important than how your kitchen looks. A lack of usable storage is one of the leading complaints homeowners have about their kitchen, but luckily there’s plenty of ways you can improve it! 

Accessible Cabinets 

Kitchen cabinets that are too tall are a commonly overlooked issue in kitchen design. When the top shelf requires a step stool to reach, you’re probably not going to utilize it very often for storage. Having kitchen cabinets installed at a lower, more accessible height is a worthwhile change to make! You can also add a carousel storage system into your existing cabinets, so you don’t have to struggle to reach items in the very back. 

Maximizing Pantry Space

Having a great pantry gives you somewhere to store all of your non-perishable food items without taking up precious cabinet space. Many new homes are built with a pantry, but older homes can have one by transforming a nearby closet into a functional pantry. Pantry inserts can be added to maximize the space in your existing pantry without breaking the bank.

Deeper Drawers 

Deeper drawers offer the perfect storage solution for mixing bowls, baking pans, and other large items that you can’t seem to find a good spot for. Drawer organizers can be added to keep items in place. Your days of shuffling through everything in a drawer to find what you need are finally over! 

Exposed Shelving 

Open shelves are growing in popularity and for good reason! Open shelves add storage space outside of your normal cabinets and offer a great spot to display some of your favorite items. You can use exposed shelving to hold anything from wine bottles to your prettiest plates and bowls. Changing up the items on exposed shelves is an easy way to give your kitchen a facelift without actually doing any remodeling! 

Island Storage 

If the extra counter space you gain by adding a new island isn’t enough, think about all of the extra storage you gain! An island can be equipped with drawers and cabinets on all sides to transform your kitchen’s amount of storage space. Islands are also proven to offer a great return on investment if you ever decide to sell your home!
