MAKING ROOM – Remodeling to Maximize Cabinet Space in Your Kitchen
HOW TO MAXIMIZE CABINET SPACE
Remodeling the kitchen is a big project, but the improvements it brings can be just as big. If you are tired of looking at your old cabinets and struggling to find the things you need, building extra space into your kitchen remodel is a smart move.
Whether you have started the kitchen remodeling project or not, it is important to look for creative ways to squeeze more space out of your new cabinets. There are a number of ways to make more room, and the best strategy is to choose the ones that work best for you.
Top Stragies to Maximize Cabinet Space
1) ADJUSTABLE SHELVING. If you are shopping for new cabinets you need to look for models that include adjustable shelving. Adjustable shelves are invaluable to any kitchen remodeling project, and they can help you make the most of the space you have available. Suddenly you will be able to maximize the cabinet space you have available, and your kitchen will seem larger as a result.
2) CONSIDER THE USE OF FLOOR-LEVEL CABINETS. It is also a good idea to look closely at the space around your feet. In many kitchens, the floor-level cabinets represent wasted space, but it does not have to be that way. You can use those lower level cabinets to store all kinds of things, including less frequently used appliances, large cans, bottled water and a host of other items. You may not want to use this space for things you need every day, but you do want to make the most of it.
3) MAKE THE MOST OF THE CABINET SPACE OVER THE STOVE. The space over the stove also tends to be wasted, so do your best to make the most of it when you remodel. Those above-the-stove cabinets tend to be shorter and squatter in stature, and that makes them perfect for storing boxed items like cake mixes, dry pasta and similar ingredients. You do not have to waste the space available inside these small cabinets – with a bit of creativity you can make the most of it.
4) MAXIMIZE THE SPACE INSIDE THE KITCHEN CABINETS.Hopefully your remodeling project already includes the installation of larger size cabinets, but you can make them even roomier by adding portable shelves. Adding a special gadget that holds soup cans will keep your kitchen cabinets neat and organized and eliminate any wasted space. You can do the same with things like bottled water, spices and other important kitchen items.
By the time you are done, you will have a kitchen you can be proud of, and much more space to work with.
