If you like to cook a lot, you know that there are massive advantages to having a clean, well-organized kitchen. A lot of kitchens are designed for just that: design. Unfortunately, having a beautiful kitchen doesn’t mean much if you can’t easily access the items inside it. This is where smart storage comes in: maximize efficiency without sacrificing style. A lot of our clients don’t realize how easy it is to include smart storage cabinets in your kitchen, but it’s extremely quick and inexpensive with a little planning.
Do you appreciate being able to reach everything inside your cabinets? Consider this: smart storage cabinets can make it possible to reach even the very back of your top shelf without having to climb on a counter or take anything out of the cabinet. Sliding shelves are a very trendy way to introduce storage space without having to add anything additional to your kitchen. Your kitchen contractor can install sliding or rotating shelving with a few well-placed screws and anchors, and being able to instantly reach everything in your cabinet will be an upgrade you never look back on.
One of the reasons that model kitchens look so beautiful is something that you wouldn’t notice at first glance – that they’re relatively empty. While having appliances that are used daily (such as a toaster or blender) on the counter can be handy, it does create a cluttered kitchen that looks more mess than blessed. Smart storage can include building a hidden, built-in door that extends down to your countertop from your top cabinets that hide away frequently used small appliances and create the illusion of a neater and better put together kitchen.
If you’ve taken care of the more frequently used items, such as spices and small appliances, you can still do more with storage upgrades. Having your kitchen contractor assess where you can maximize space in your kitchen will be a decision you never look back on. We’ll be able to tell you whether cabinets that go to the ceiling and hide away cookbooks or those oddball baking dishes that you have but use maybe once a year will be a good decision for your household, or if your money would be better spent optimizing space with a functional kitchen island. Your contractor is used to assessing unique situations, and an experienced one will be more than happy to help you save money while achieving your dream kitchen.
