How to De-Clutter Your Kitchen Appliance Storage
If you love to cook, or just have many mouths to feed, no doubt you spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Having an efficient and comfortable kitchen is key to making the most out of your culinary talents. No matter how big or small your space is, we often find ourselves frustrated trying to maneuver around our many kitchen appliances, or trying to find them when we actually need them.
Instead of wasting time at every meal searching for the right tools and appliances, you can save time and sanity by rearranging and reorganizing your kitchen to better meet your needs. Using the following kitchen renovation tips and tricks will help you make better use of the space you have, giving you extra time and space to chop, season, and sear as you wish.
The key to maximizing your space is to add hardware to your pre-existing storage spaces. Cabinets, pantries, and shelves do not provide much wiggle room naturally, and often wind up packed and cluttered.
By replacing flat shelves with a carousel (think of it as a large spice rack for appliances), you can stash away many appliances without having them stacked one in front of the other – causing inevitable clutter. Instead of having to drag out every other appliance you own just to grab the one you need from the back, everything you need is just one spin away!
Also, don’t we all wish at one point or another that we could just pull out the entire shelf when trying to dig through bulky appliances? Now you can, and it’s easier than ever. Pull-out shelves are a cost-effective and easy addition to make appliances readily accessible. By adding a pull-out shelf to your cupboard, you can keep appliances sitting out of sight but ready to grab within seconds.
Finally, many of us keep appliances on countertops or other surfaces to avoid wasting time searching through packed cupboards. It’s nice having all our appliances plugged in and ready to go without a second thought. Nowadays, many homeowners are simply adding outlets to cupboards, creating little appliance nooks and giving them the best of both worlds. It keeps countertops clutter-free, but provides each appliance its own designated, ready to use space behind every pantry or cupboard door.
By adding hardware to your pre-existing shelves, pantries, and cabinets, your kitchen will open up and be easier to use. Keep all your handy kitchen gadgets easily accessible when you need them, and out of your way when you don’t. There are many different storage options to look through during your next kitchen renovation, and Ottawa renovation companies are more than happy to help you revamp your space to make it a dream to work with.
