How to Optimize Your Kitchen’s Storage Space

Posted on: April 17, 2016

When homeowners in Northern Virginia come to us for a kitchen remodel, the number one item on the “must have” list is more kitchen storage. Since the kitchen is one of the most used spaces in your home, it is no wonder why you need storage space for pots, pans, dishware, food, and more. If renovating your current kitchen isn’t an option quite yet, there are several ways to optimize your kitchen’s storage.

Check out the ways below; or, if you’re ready to expand your kitchen with a renovation, call the kitchen design experts at WISA Solutions!

6 Ways to Make the Most of Your Small Kitchen

Use stackable containers and cups – chances are your cabinets are full of containers, cups, and other items. Purchase items that are stackable to help you save space.

Invest in an island with storage – Islands are a great place to not only prep food but to also store your kitchen utensils! Choose an island with plenty of storage to hold items.

Hang mugs and more – Many of your typical hardware and home décor stores have hanging devices that make it easy to hang mugs, pots, pans, spoons, and more! Take advantage of your wall space and hang items to keep them out of your cupboards.

Store outside of your kitchen – Do you have plates and platters that are only brought out for holidays and special events? Store these items in closets, basements, or attics.

Store high – Do you have room above your cabinets? Install shelving above your cabinets to store items you do not need every day. This can be large platters, matching dishware, and more!

Install a pantry – Many pantries are built into the home; however, if you don’t have that option there are several ways to install a pantry. One easy way is to use large cabinets—similar to a wardrobe. This will allow you to store food and spices in places other than your kitchen cabinets.

How to Make More Storage in Your Kitchen

If you’re looking to increase the space in your kitchen, your best bet is to schedule a renovation. Renovating your kitchen can not only increase your storage but it also allow you to completely create a kitchen of your dreams—from countertops to appliances.

“WISA stands behind their work, which is high-quality. Waris and Daoud are very communicative and were very helpful in getting work done on time. Some of their rates were a bit higher than other competitors, but for the quality of service and work, it's worth it!”

“WISA Solutions is a top notch contractor. We reached out to numerous contractors for our kitchen, foyer and half bath renovation. WISA was by far the most responsive, detailed and affordable of the three quotes that we received. Working with Waris and Daoud was a breeze. This was our first…”

“Great Job! Excellent work at a fair price. WISA remodeled our two upstairs bathrooms. We received 3 quotes for this job. WISA was a bit lower than the others, but not by a huge amount. What impressed us was their presentation. We had a chance to visit to a similar…”
