Clearing Up Counter Space
Kitchen Designer Expert Tips: Storage For Your Kitchen
When you don’t have enough storage space in your kitchen, you end up cluttering up your counters. Once you’ve filled up all the counter space, you start piling things on the floor. Before you can’t stand to be in your home due to all the clutter, talk to our design specialists about incorporating these storage and organizational tricks into your kitchen design.
Hang in there
Instead of using your counter space or any horizontal space to store more gadgets, tools, appliances, and utensils, take a look at your walls space or any vertical free space where you could hang a few of your items. We know you can’t hang your Kitchen Aid from a hook on the wall, but all of your pots, pans, and utensils all come with convenient little “hang from here” handles. So, go ahead and hang the things that can be hung.
You can even hang stuff from the ceiling. What’s a kitchen island if it doesn’t have a canopy of overhanging pots and pans?
Get rid of the knife block
It may not seem like much, but the more you can take off your counters, the more open and light your kitchen will feel. With a lot of open counter space, you’ll feel much more free to cook and move about in your kitchen. The magnetic strip that you hang on your wall is the perfect answer to the counter-hogging knife block, and you’ll get to display all of your sharp, shiny knives.
Utilize the top of your cabinets
If there is space between your cabinets and the ceiling, choose your best-looking items to place on the “top shelf.”
