Having a cluttered and disorganized kitchen can be a major hassle to even the most efficient cooks. It’s not hard to get frustrated when you open a drawer and all your pots and pans lids start cascading out, or when you buy groceries only to discover you have no room left in your pantry. Instead of getting frustrated at your situation, call a kitchen contractor that specializes in maximizing storage space! Kitchen contractors not only know how to make your kitchen seem bigger than it is, they can help create a room that is not only functional but also beautiful.
If you have been on Pinterest within the last five years, you might have noticed that the kitchen is becoming less of a 1950’s-era utilitarian room and more of a design piece. Things such as vertical storage, built-in Lazy Susan’s, and corner cabinets are all items that your kitchen contractor will be able to install in a breeze.
By hiring a kitchen contractor, you’re stepping off the dreamy pages of Pinterest and into the real world where experts know how to achieve the look and functionality that you want in your home. Experienced kitchen contractors are experts in reaching the corners, nooks, and crannies of your kitchen so that you have more room for the things that matter. When is the last time you actually grabbed something from the cabinet above your refrigerator? Have you left some of your pots and pans to die in the corner cabinet you never use? A kitchen contractor is able to assess these spaces and figure out which areas should be better utilized. It might be possible to remove the cabinet and put a shelving unit above your fridge that you can more easily reach inside, or install a pull out unit into that corner cabinet that makes it easier to reach into the back.
Vertical storage is one of the most underutilized techniques in the modern kitchen. A kitchen contractor will be able to help you maximize your storage by installing hanging racks above the island, magnetic strips on the wall to hold spices and frequently used sauce and oil bottles, or even shelves underneath a cabinet to hold and display your glasses. Before your consultation with your kitchen contractor, take note of what you most frequently grab when cooking and bring a list to the meeting. A kitchen contractor will take this list and transfer it into a game plan – for example, if you find that you constantly are digging for pans in the cabinet, installing a hanging rack above your kitchen island will be beneficial.
