7 Ideas To Maximise Kitchen Storage Space

Your kitchen will likely contain more gadgets, accessories, and other items than any other room in your home, and that is before any food. This is the reason why the kitchen has a lot of storage space. However, if you have a small kitchen, then even this storage can be at a premium. There are ways that you can create more storage without building an extension to your house. Here are 7 ideas to maximize kitchen storage space. 

1 Buy a Mini Fridge

If you have limited space, then mini-fridges can be a great way to store and chill items without costing you a lot of space. They can even be placed in the dining area so you can reach cold drinks without having to go to the main fridge. 

2 Install Hooks for Mugs

Cups and mugs don’t always stack properly which can make them take up a lot of space in your cupboard. One way to fix this is to install hooks under the shelves to hang cups and mugs. You can also get metal hook racks that slide onto the shelf if you don’t want to drill holes. This will free up much-needed space for other items. 

3 Declutter Your Kitchen

There are many people who will have utensils or old dinner plates that are never used. This is a good time to clear out all of the old items to make more room for the things you use. Kitchen cupboards and the fridge can also be cleared to remove old and out-of-date food that always ends up at the back. 

4 Sink Cutting Board

If you don’t have a lot of counter space, then getting a cutting board that fits over your sink can create valuable space for cooking and preparing food. You can also get covers that fit over your cooking hob as well to create even more countertop space. 

5 Install a Pot Rack

Pots and pans are other items that can take up a lot of space in the cupboard. By installing a pot rack, you can free up that space, and make your pots and pans easier to reach. Some people add pot racks to shelves or as a dedicated row of hooks on the wall. Another idea is to have one suspended from the ceiling on hooks and chains. 

6 Add Shelf Risers

Shelf risers are small shelves on legs that allow you to place items underneath as well as on top. This can double the amount of storage you have in your regular cupboards. These risers can also be used on the countertop to create additional storage of utensils or gadgets. 

7 Add Storage to Cupboard Doors

One area that many people miss is the area inside the cupboard doors. There is usually enough space to fit a small rack for plates or cooking sheets. Some people also place their bin behind the cupboard door, especially the one under the sink. 

So, there you have it – just 7 simple ideas that can maximize your kitchen storage space. By adding these and other storage ideas to your kitchen, you can create more than enough space for your additional gadgets and utensils.
