The kitchen in some cultures is considered to be the heart of the home, a place we gravitate to for our morning coffee and evening meal as well as many other integral moments of our day. That’s why if your kitchen is only a small space, you want to ensure you’re maximising the area you have, so that it’s not full of clutter! Here at Multi-store, we’ve put together some advice around how best to organise your kitchen, with ideas for storage solution possibilities.
One of the places considered to be dead space below the kitchen cabinets near the floor! So why not look to take advantage of it with creating a drawer that pops out with a simple push of your feet? You could store extra plates, frying pans, even your herbs and spices!
Another area that’s rarely utilised is that space above your windows. Having a shelf installed will allow you to create storage opportunities between your window and ceiling. It’s perfect for your pots and pans and can even allow you to add a decorative flair with the use of a hanging or trailing house plant.
When it comes to organising your kitchen, we always get jealous over those beautiful tucked away pull out pantries that sometimes occupy the space between your fridge and other integrated units. A pull-out pantry is the perfect way to utilise a small amount a space with the use of thin shelving units to store things like food or chopping boards.
This one may seem a little unorthodox, but it’s a great way to upcycle your office supplies! Black wired letter trays can become a part of your industrial aesthetic, creating a stylish magazine rack, whilst an old pen pot can become a simple utensils holder.
This is one of our favourite elements to any kitchen organisation! The trolley allows for easily manoeuvrable storage which is useful if you need to tuck away anything in a different room! It’s also a stylish way to serve guests when they come over for dinner parties. Put all your alcohol and drinking options on its shelves and wheel it in for effect!
Modular shelving systems allow you flexibility when it comes to the future as you add more elements to your kitchen. If your shelving system is modular it allows you to add extra shelving or alternatively, remove the shelving if you have additional larger items to store.
