3 Storage Hacks for Your Kitchen

by Kevin Smith Author

Do you feel like your kitchen never seems to have enough room for all the things you want to put away? There are plenty of storage hacks out there that can help you maximize the use of this space. Here are a few you can try.

Have Compartments in Your Drawers

Most of the time, people just throw all sorts of things into their kitchen drawers. These items end up jumbled up together, and it can be hard to find what you need. It also isn't an effective way to make the best use of the storage area, as objects that aren't neatly stacked have unutilized free space between them.

To better organize your drawers, you may purchase some with several compartments or partitions. If you've already bought ones that don't have this feature, you can just set up DIY dividers by cutting up old shoeboxes and gluing them together to create custom-sized sections. You'll have an easier time stacking similar items on top of each other and keeping other objects separate. This reduces empty space.

Use a Magnetic Rack for Knives

Instead of having a bulky wooden rack that takes up precious countertop space, why not try using a magnetic strip to hold your knives? Install one on the wall above your usual work surface and just stick these tools on it. It's a great way to store blades and make them more accessible at the same time. You'll also be utilizing the vertical room between upper and lower cabinets that are usually left vacant.

You may create a DIY rack with magnetic strips you can buy from hardware stores. There are also other more stylish options, such as magnet bars with wooden or ceramic finishes, that you can purchase from shops that sell kitchen accessories.

Customize Your Cabinet Door

Utilize the area on the inside of your cabinet door to create storage for items that you need easy access to. You can do plenty of things to maximize this usually bare space.

For example, you can mount a hook rack on this side of the door. This is good for neatly organizing frequently-used cooking utensils, like spatulas or turners. You don't have to dig through your cabinet to find them, as you can spot them easily when you open it.

Another useful accessory that you may install on the back of the cabinet door is a wire organizer or caddy. This creates handy shelving for bulkier objects. Depending on the container's size, you can store anything from small spice jars to cleaning supplies.

These are just some tips that you may follow. From using drawer compartments to hanging caddies on the doors of your kitchen cabinets in Bellevue, WA, all of these hacks will help you organize the room and create more storage space.
