Hang attractive, frequently used cookware from a metal rack suspended from the ceiling or wall. This will free up cabinet space for storing other items. Try storing baking pans, trays, and platters vertically in that hard to reach cabinet over the refrigerator. Install them between spacers of the same material on the cabinet’s top and bottom.
Creating New Kitchen Storage
This next set of tips can add much needed storage in ways you might not have considered. Try some of these ideas:
Hang measuring cups and serving spoons from hooks inside your cabinets
Mount a spice rack on the inside of a cabinet door
Place a rollout pantry in the space next to your refrigerator if you have 4 inches or more to work with
Add a clever bookcase to your kitchen and use it for cookbooks and canisters
Use a rollout cart, which can provide extra work and storage space that you can wheel from sink to stove.
Whatever you do, try a few of these ideas to get and keep your kitchen organized. You’ll be glad you did!
