Cabinets and Drawers
We store most of our food and kitchen items in our cabinets and in our drawers. Ensuring that we have some organization within both our kitchen cabinets and drawers would certainly add to how efficiently we work in the kitchen. And in this day and age of specialization there are a multitude of storage solutions that you can find for any room of the house, not the least of which is the kitchen. So where does the homeowner start when it comes to kitchen storage?
The first place to start is where you store the most items and that is in your cabinets. Whether you have a small galley-type kitchen or a large U-shaped kitchen, adding some proper storage solutions to your cabinets will certainly help you find what you need when you need it. Kitchen cabinet drawer organizers take the form of pull-out drawers that are installed inside your cabinets in lieu of the traditional shelves. It takes a bit of work but not as much as you might think to install these storage items. You can either do it yourself or hire someone but after you make the upgrade you’ll be so glad you did. The real advantage of the pull-out kitchen cabinet organizers is that with a simple pull of the drawer-like tray everything comes into full view, even what is in the back of your cabinet.
Or perhaps you could install a lazy Susan or a turntable within your cabinets. These rotating surfaces allow you to easily see what’s in the back of the cabinet with a simple spin. You can purchase these as single-level units or dual-level. What is so convenient about these units is that you can store common items like spices on one unit so that you will go one place when you need them for ingredients in your meal.
Your next largest storage area in your kitchen is your kitchen drawers. Kitchen drawer organizers allow you to separate kitchen items properly in your drawers. Rather than seeing a jumbled mess when you open up your drawers, you will have an organized space with distinct separate zones for each item. You can either by expandable wood dividers that will fit in any drawer or single one-piece units that are also expandable to fit any drawer.
If you take the plunge and add some smart storage to your kitchen cabinets and drawers you’ll be well on your way to working much more efficiently in the kitchen.
