Kitchen Organization to Build into your Remodel

by | Apr 15, 2020

 

A kitchen remodel usually consists of a new layout and cabinets, along with updated appliances. Custom cabinets for organization have taken center stage in kitchen trends, providing useful storage of cookware, utensils, and non-perishable food. Cabinetry can look stylish while maintaining unique custom storage solutions that add to your life. Let’s explore some cabinet storage ideas for your remodel that will get you excited about cabinetry.

Clever Cookware Storage

Everyone has had a messy base cabinet full of pots and pans. Homeowners try to get a hold of it by reorganizing often, but it doesn’t stay that way for long. Your cabinet choices for organizing your cookware can improve with the right tools. One dedicated storage solution is a roll-out rack, installed in your base cabinets. These racks organize your pots, pans, and lids. They stay tidy because you can’t just shove a pot into the cabinet during a hectic cleaning session. What’s even better is a corner cabinet with a rotating shelf. Corner cabinets offer more space than you would expect and can make the most of your space.

Pantry Cabinets and Pantry Walls

A tall cabinet, also known as a pantry or utility cabinet, can be useful for creating food storage without taking up too much space. These cabinets often range around 84 to 96 inches tall. Our favorites include pull out racks that can hold more than enough food without losing items in the back, like with a traditional pantry. If you want more than one pantry cabinet, consider a pantry wall. You can organize your food by your family’s needs. Pantry racks can hold spices, cookbooks, or other nonperishables that normally take up too much room in wider cabinets.

A Utility Drawer for Odds and Ends

Additionally, there are slim tilt-out drawers available with storage for odds and ends, like flashlights, extra batteries, and other miscellaneous items. You can also use utility drawers for organizing cooking tools, sponges, and dish towels. You might choose to store your plastic wrap, tin foil, and Ziploc bags in a utility drawer. It’s the perfect addition for keeping the clutter at bay and a way to utilize spaces in your cabinets that are often wasted.

Keep the Trash Out of Sight

In many kitchens, there is a garbage can sitting somewhere off to the side. Not everyone likes to see the trash can or smell it every time they walk past. If you have separate recycling receptacles in your kitchen you may be sacrificing more than just aesthetics—they take up valuable floor space. Cabinets are now designed to contain those items out of sight of your guests and nosy pets. Many cabinets feature a pull-out rack that holds the garbage or compost pail. Others may look like the siding of the cabinets that pull open for you to drop items in or pull the bag out.

Kitchen storage can be hard to manage. With the right choice of cabinetry for your kitchen remodel, it will make it a breeze.
