You may not be able to enlarge the size of your kitchen but you can still boost your storage capacity by adding accessories onto your old cabinets.
Today’s kitchen storage systems make efficient use of every available inch putting all your cooking essentials with an easy reach.
Wine racks are particularly classy accessory that have dramatically risen in popularity over the last few years. And like most storage accessories, wine racks are getting easier and easier to install requiring either a few well-placed screws or even coming pre-installed unto your kitchen cabinet.
While wine racks maybe the new kid on the block, simple shelving is still an ideal storage accessory. There are of course standard shelves, shelves that glide on rollers, tiered shelves for making can goods easy o reach and even small shelves and drawers that are ideal for storing recipes, address books, and whatever other paper work you may need at hand. A lazy Susan can transform hard to reach corner cabinets into the valuable space. And no kitchen should be without slide out baskets and bins that keep trash and recyclables out of sight. And take the hassle out of clean up.
For canned goods and bulk items, there are several types of sturdy pantry units that make special use of narrow spaces. Vertical dividers provide a handy way to store pans, trays, and sheets without having to worry about them falling over.
Even basic drawers inserts and dividers go along way toward organizing your utensils and cutlery. There are also a great way to turn your junk drawer into — well, a better junk drawer.
And do not forget storage under the sink. You can install a tilt out sink tray or even a wire towel wrack with only a few screws. By adding storage systems, everything becomes easier to reach and easier to stow away.
And for only a few dollars, you can turn a cluttered kitchen into a dream kitchen that makes cooking a lot more fun.
