No matter how much cabinet space you have, sometimes it’s still not enough. If you have too much stuff and not enough room to put it, things get messy fast.
There are ways to increase your kitchen cabinet storage space without adding entirely new cabinets.
Kitchen storage racks, along with other organizational tools, can you help you get your cabinets in order for good.
There are a few different kinds of storage racks. Some are designed for plates and other dishware while others are designed for food.
Why not opt for a can rack, spice rack or kitchen lid rack?
You’ll find a wide variety of shapes, styles, and colors available. In order to find something that fits, you should write down your cabinet's measurements before you shop.
Also take note of the cabinets’ interior material if you want the racks to match - consider taking a photo to compare colors.
Once you have your storage racks, set aside a day to sort through all the clutter in your cabinets so you can start using them. It’s easiest to complete this particular project cabinet by cabinet instead of doing it all at once.
Choose a starting point, and remove everything from that cabinet. Go through and see what you need and what can be thrown or given away. Let go of anything you never use. It can be hard but it’s worth it to free up that extra space in the end.
Should I Clean The Cabinets Before Installing New Racks?
While everything is out of the cabinets, scrub them with warm water and whichever cleaning product you usually use. It’s a good chance to do so since they’re rarely empty.
Once they have dried, think about the placement of the storage racks. You may want to designate certain items to certain cabinets. How you organize your kitchen is up to you, just make sure to decide before putting in the storage racks.
Finally it’s time to put everything back in! If you’ve come up with a great sorting system and found the best storage racks for your needs, this should be an easy task.
Not only do kitchen racks give you more space to store things in your cabinets, they also make it easier to find what you’re looking for quickly. When things are neatly organized you can access your food and cooking tools instantly. If you’re looking for an easy organization project that will make a big difference in your home, this is the idea for you.
