So you’ve already Marie Kondo’d the heck out of your cabinets, and you still don’t have enough space. It happens to the best of us. But whether you have a big family, a handful of roommates, or just a lot of stuff, there are ways to make the most of the space in your cabinets in Salt Lake City. From cabinet experts AWA Kitchen Cabinets, here are some tips for optimizing your cabinet space.
You Don’t Have to Keep Everything in Your Cabinets
Some items just weren’t meant for the kitchen cabinet life. Seasonal items and other items you use very rarely can be stored in a closet, basement, or attic. You don’t need the Santa Claus cookie cutters cluttering up your cabinets all year long.
Now start thinking about the items that you use all the time. Your coffee maker, spice rack, or anything else you’re reaching for every day can be left on the counter, making more room for your other items. You can also choose to leave certain items out on the counter on display. Whether it’s a pastel pink KitchenAide, a particularly ornate coffee canister, or a vintage kitchen appliance, displaying your prized kitchen possessions is a great way to free up cabinet space.
Shelves and Turntables and Bins, Oh My!
You are not alone in your cabinet space maximization endeavor, which is why there are countless retailers that carry organizers to help your cabinets stay decluttered. Cabinet shelves are one of them. If there is too much vertical space in your kitchen cabinets, adding these shelves helps create more horizontal surface area. Rather than precariously stacking your kitchen items to fill the space, cabinet shelves are a great way to make use of all of the space you have without making it difficult to remove items at the bottom.
Turntables are the perfect solution to that spice shelf that somehow always ends up a mess. Rather than digging through countless spices, simply spin the turntable to find the ones you need. You can also use turntables for canned goods or other small items.
Bins will also be your friend when it comes to optimizing cabinet space. If you have small items that you’re not sure how to efficiently store, a bin will do the trick. Not only that, but you can use bins and other containers to store items that you want to keep on the kitchen counter.
