Even the most organized of cooks struggle to keep items in their kitchen organized. Big, open, box-shaped spaces just don’t lend them themselves to staying organized. While it’s easy to initially keep items such as cooking utensils or pots organized, with out some kind of organization within the drawer or space, things eventually tend to get jumbled and overstuffed. But don’t despair, there are smart kitchen storage solutions that can be incorporated into your new or remodeled kitchen design to promote organization and make the most of the space you have.
Specialty kitchen cabinet storage can have the biggest impact on kitchen organization in two primary ways discussed below. Keep in mind when designing your new kitchen that specialty storage should be incorporated thoughtfully, taking into consideration the kitchen flow, use and traffic patterns. At Sawhill Custom Kitchens & Design, we work with our clients to truly understand how they use their kitchen space, and incorporate specialty storage features into kitchen designs that are specifically tailored to create ease and efficiency based on our client’s lifestyle. Just haphazardly adding them will not yield the same results and trust us when we say that, when thoughtfully implemented, these features in your new or remodeled will make you wonder how you ever lived without them!
Impact #1: Specialty Kitchen Storage Make Items Easier to Use and Access
Looking to improve the efficiency and functionality of your kitchen? Specialty storage features such as appliance garages, mixer lifts and pull out shelves are all designed to make accessing and utilizing the items stored within easier while minimizing counter clutter.
For example, with an appliance garage, there is no more reaching up high into the depths of the top cabinets to pull out a food processor. For an avid baker, a mixer lift is a back and time saver, allowing the mixer to be moved from storage with the lift of a finger while pull out pantry shelves eliminate looking for items in the dark recesses of a cabinet. Dish or other organization drawers located where the items are most often used will make them easier to access. Ultimately, these features will save you time and energy in the kitchen.
Impact #2: Specialty Kitchen Storage Helps You Utilize Your Space More Efficiently
A second area where specialty storage can have an impact is improving how space is organized or utilizing a space that might otherwise be wasted. This can be found in features that promote better organization, better functionality or better use of a space. For example, pull out drawers with built-in dividers help keep utensils and other items better organized. Corner drawer units allow you to better utilize corner space and avoid drawers open into each other. Narrow pull out racks for dishwasher supplies or spices utilize space between cabinets that might be otherwise wasted while also improving functionality of a kitchen.
These are just a few of the specialty kitchen storage ideas that are available to homeowners looking to improve the functionality of their space and customize their kitchen to their lifestyle.
