As the heart of the home, the kitchen is the place for family gatherings, cooking, and entertaining. But when your kitchen is cluttered, it can be difficult to find the tools and ingredients you need. That’s why storage is essential in any kitchen. Here are seven interior design ideas to maximize your kitchen storage:
Use vertical space. Utilize upper shelves and wall-mounted cabinets to maximize vertical space in your kitchen. This will help you store items that you don’t need to access often, such as seasonal items and extra supplies.
Install Roll-Out Shelving. Installing roll out shelving within kitchen cabinets can help to make better use of deep storage areas where things can sometimes get lost behind other items.
Create a coffee bar area. A coffee or drinks bar area in your kitchen can take some of the organizational weight off by keeping all the coffee and drink related items together in your space. Having all the necessities together helps you to be more efficient in the kitchen too. Need an idea on a space for your coffee bar?

Add a pantry. If you have the space, adding a pantry is a great way to store food, kitchen supplies, and small kitchen appliances out of sight and off the countertops.
Use corner shelves. Take advantage of the often-overlooked corner space in your kitchen. Installing corner shelves will give you additional storage for spices, oils, and other small items. You can also install a lazy susan in a corner area to make for even more storage space.
Install an island. A kitchen island can provide additional storage and countertop space. Plus, it can also be used as a breakfast bar or as a gathering place.
Use baskets and bins. Place baskets and bins on shelves and countertops to store items such as fruits and vegetables, cookbooks, and small appliances. This will help keep your kitchen neat and organized.
By implementing any of these seven interior design ideas, you can maximize your kitchen storage and make your kitchen more functional and organized. And remember, if you need help maximizing your kitchen's storage, we are just a click or call away!
