Tips for Getting More Kitchen Storage With Same Floor Area

Conventional wisdom says that freeing up more floor space allows for more storage space. Although it is not wrong, it would be incorrect to think that this is the only way to do this. There are ways to increase your kitchen’s storage capacity with the same amount of floor area.

Make New Cabinetry Touch the Ceiling

The space between your upper cabinetry and the ceiling is generally unused. If your kitchen can relate to this, maximize this vacant wall area with a new set of cabinets. Yes, they can be hard to reach, but they are meant for storage seasonable items.

If you have partyware you rarely use or old appliances you do not want to toss, ceiling units can provide you with more room for storage.

Go Deeper With Drawers

Typical kitchen cabinets are 24 inches deep. If there is an opportunity to achieve greater depth, take advantage of it. If you are planning to get new kitchen countertops, trade your cupboards for drawers to avoid having trouble with access.

Have an Island

A kitchen island is rarely lonely, for its utility is usually multi-faceted. It could have open shelves, toe kicks, under-sink cabinets, pull-out drawers and many more. Your imagination is the only limit to your new kitchen island storage capacity. 

Adopt Clever Features

If you have no plans to replace your current storage units and do kitchen cabinet refacing only, consider retrofitting them with new pieces of hardware to have more functionality and better organization. Hanging rails and pull-out racks are two of the most popular add-ons to old cabinets.
