Do you ever feel that you would have the perfect kitchen if you had just one more inch of room. You are not alone. In my case, I still have not found the perfect place to store utensils…utensils! With abstract kitchen designs, it can be difficult to find room for that new Vitamix 6300. Here are a few storage tips to save for some extra room in your kitchen.
We love our pets. We love to feed them right. However, its difficult to find space for their kibble when all we can find is labeled “BIG food for BIG dogs!” You order one bag and it arrives on a pallet at the shipping yard. One solution is to pour their food into cereal containers. They don’t spill, they aren’t completely awkward to use (think every time you’ve tried to pour a huge bag of dog food), they fit easily into cabinets, and most importantly they save space! They are a simple, cheap, and easy solution.
For some, baking is a hobby, for others it’s therapeutic, and for the rest of us…it’s frustrating. Losing measuring cups and tablespoon utensils can turn a simple afternoon of baking into a complex math equation, starting with a teaspoon of vanilla extract and ending with a burnt bundt cake and a whisk shaped hole in your wall. A simple solution can just be through organization, a can of chalkboard paint, and mountable coat hanger rack. This is an excellent way to not only a creative way keep track of your utensils, but will save you plenty of drawer space.
As we grow older, we stop fearing what is underneath the bed and start dreading the horrors that could be lurking underneath our kitchen sink. By adding a tension rod, you will be able to hang cleaning supplies, leaving plenty of room for bins to hold sponges, gloves, and the gremlin you weren’t supposed to feed passed midnight.
What’s more frustrating than an unopenable drawer? This fix is a bit more advanced, but you’ll be thanking yourself for the extra room once you complete this little project. With a couple hinges, 6 screws, and a plastic tray you’ve developed another compartment fit myriad items!
