Never Underestimate a Well-Planned Utility Space

No one likes living in a crowded home, which is why proper storage is such an important quality for any place. One of the best ways to ensure a home is equipped with sufficient storage solutions is to sit down and create a well-planned utility space design.

Where Should You Put a Utility Space?

This is something that is completely up to you. While some homeowners like to put their utility space attached to their kitchen, others prefer to incorporate it into their laundry room or other parts of their home. What is even more important than the location of the utility space is the location of the utility space.

A utility space is a great place to put a collection of items that would otherwise be cluttering up other rooms of the home.

What Makes the Perfect Utility Space Design?

Planning the best utility design is something that will require multiple considerations. For example, you will need to have plenty of segregated storage solutions. Otherwise, it is far too easy to end up with a cluttered mess when you go looking for something specific in the utility room.

You should also have a storage system that is individually designed for the space where it is located. So if you happen to include a utility space as part of your laundry room design, then you should make sure to incorporate storage solutions that are able to contain and organize various detergents, other laundry products, and provide a space for holding laundry baskets or folding clothes.

In order to make sure that you get a utility space design that is perfectly suited to your particular needs, you’ll need the guidance of a team of design specialists. That is where we come in with our expert design services. To take advantage of our custom-designed spaces, make sure to contact us at The Kitchen Showcase.

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.”
