If you’re remodeling your kitchen, your attention is probably focused on selecting finishes and materials for your floors, cabinets, countertops, and so on. As important as it is to ensure that your kitchen is as beautiful as you desire, even more important is ensuring that your kitchen is as functional as you need it to be. One of the most important elements of a functional kitchen is having enough storage for all of your kitchen supplies. Here are a few storage ideas that you may want to consider including in your kitchen remodel. Speak to your contractors in Atlanta to see if they can work these into your design.
Lazy Susan Cabinet
Corner cabinets are notorious for wasting space. Because they tend to be so deep, you can’t make full use of the cabinet without burying some of your items in the back, where they’re extremely difficult to reach, if not impossible. One way to correct this problem and upgrade your storage is to install a Lazy Susan in the cabinet. By allowing you to spin a simple tray to reach items in the back, this simple upgrade makes the most of those deep corner cabinets. These can have multiple levels too, so you can maximize vertical space at the same time.
Sliding Spice Cupboard
You know that narrow space beside your fridge? It’s not good for much, right? Well, you can change all that by have your contractors install a sliding spice cupboard while they’re doing your kitchen remodel. This narrow, tall cabinet can slide in between your fridge and your other cabinets, and can conveniently store all of your spices in such a way that you don’t have to dig through them all to find what you’re looking for.
Does your kitchen flow into your dining room? If it doesn’t, odds are you’re already going to correct that issue with your remodel. While you’re at it, consider adding a floating cabinet or 2 that open from both sides. These cabinets can be mounted to the ceiling above the kitchen counter closest to the dining room. By putting a cabinet door on both sides, you make it easy to access all of the dishes stored in the cabinet. Plus, since it’s that much closer to the dining room table, it gets that much easier to set the table for supper.
