20 Kitchen Designs With Great Storage Space

A kitchen is the most functional room in the house. You use it for so many things, from cooking and eating, to entertaining, kids’ homework, crafts, bill paying, and much more. It can be the collect-all room for more than just dishes and cookware. Your kitchen houses a wide range of items, which means it can easily get cluttered and unorganized, especially if you don’t have adequate storage. Creating more storage is and you can be creative and add storage in areas that maximize the use of your square footage, counter space and other areas of the kitchen. Here are some tips to give your kitchen a storage space makeover.

1. Wall shelving

If you have a wall that doesn’t serve much of a purpose but to hang a piece of artwork or maybe houses one or two cupboards, why not create a whole wall of shelves that can really help you organize your kitchenware, and other items you can’t find the space for. It’s a great way to display your beautiful pieces, as well as store items you have nowhere to store. If you have enough wall space behind your kitchen sink, build shelves above the sink, or on either side of the window, if one exists. This gives you easy access to your kitchenware and other items you may need to get to easily.

2. Decorative storage cabinets 

Today, decorative storage units come in an array of styles that make your kitchen look stylish yet serve a very important purpose, they store things. You can choose a storage unit that looks much like a stand alone cabinet that offers storage options, such as shelves, pull-out drawers or hangers for hanging items. Whether your décor style is a country chic, modern, rustic or retro, you can find the look you want. And depending on the space available, there are cabinets that fit into corners, or other odd spaces where you need to optimize your space.

3. Utilize all your space options for storage

Your island or chopping block doesn’t have to serve one purpose, but you can make it work for you by including things, such as, pull-out drawers, shelves, and cubbies. Set organizers on your chopping block or island where you can organize cooking utensils, spices, and other cooking items.

4. Hanging pot rack

Hanging pot racks are not only storage options, but they are decorative, too. A wrought iron hanging pot rack can be a focal point for the kitchen, plus free-up storage space for other items that you want to keep out of site.
