If you're like most people, you don't have enough places to store all of your kitchen necessities. The kitchen can be one of the hardest rooms in the house to get organized. It's full of gadgets and accessories and sometimes it's a real trick trying to figure out where to store everything. If you're looking for some useful kitchen tips for storage, here are a few to get you started.
A customized pantry
This is the ultimate storage solution for any kitchen. When you have a pantry designed specifically for your own kitchen, you can sometimes end up with double or even triple the storage space you're working with now.
Add a drawer under the sink
If you open up the doors to the cupboards underneath your sink, you'll see a lot of wasted space that's available. This is the perfect place to keep your cleaning supplies and you'll still have plenty of space available underneath the added drawer to store other odds and ends.
In some kitchens a lot of space is wasted in the corners. Corner drawers head into the corner diagonally and offer a lot of storage space. They are deeper than the regular drawers so you can pack a lot of gadgets into them.
A drawer for cookie sheets
Storing cookie sheets can be somewhat of a dilemma. If you lay them horizontally they take up a lot of room and if you put them vertically they tend to fall over. There are pullouts available that can be put into your cabinet to neatly store your cookie sheets. You can also add metal dividers to keep your cooling racks, cookie sheets and muffin tins separated and tidy.
A trash can that pulls out
Free up some of your floor space by adding a pullout storage compartment for trash. Some of these trash cans also come with a side storage area where you can store your trash bags.
