Update Your Kitchen Storage
If you are thinking about remodeling your kitchen, chances are something that already exists is not working for you. There are tons of different storage option available to make your life easier. Here are a few of the important factors to consider when you are trying to figure out storage options for your kitchen.
Trash And Recycling
One of the most important things in your kitchen might be where you dump your waste. When working, you want the disposal to be close to the area where you are chopping and cutting so that you can easily get rid of your scraps. Consider putting a pull out cutting board right over your trash can so that you can dump your scraps right in the bin underneath. A garbage disposal in the kitchen sink can also help with the scraps that are too small to be picked up.
Plates and Cups
Be sure to pick a cabinet for your plates and cups that will hold everything and is also conveniently located. If your dishwasher is on one side of the kitchen and your plates and cups are kept on the other side, you are going to have a lot of walking to do when you are putting away your dishes. It is best to take into account the location of your dishwasher and plan out your storage from there.
Are you a frequent baker? Some people like to arrange their kitchen with baking in mind. Baking ingredients can all be kept in one cupboard above your work space. This saves running back and forth to the pantry every time you need a supply. Shelves can be designed at different heights to hold canisters of flour and smaller decorative items like sprinkles and frostings. Keeping these items all within reach of your workspace will make it easy for you to bake your sweet treats.
Spices are sometimes the trickiest to store. The little jars and bottles can add up quickly, and need a storage solution of their own. There are tons of pull-out spice racks on the market today. Some fit under cabinets, others are designed to go in a drawer. Figure out where you plan to keep your spices and then look into purchasing a rack that will work for your space.
