Never seem to have enough storage in your kitchen? You might just need to look at the problem differently. Rather than cramming cookware and utensils in cabinets, consider making them part of the design. We call it stow vs. show.
Countertop clutter not only looks messy, it also limits your workspace. Consider hanging items, such as food storage jars, above your counter. Attach a sheet of metal to the underside of your cabinets with screws, and glue magnets to jar lids. Then mark the jars with labels.
Hang utensils using magnetic hooks to free up additional counter space.
Your cabinet doors can be used to store lots of things. Attach curtain rods inside, and use clip rings to hang utensils and measuring cups. Add corkboard to tack up your favorite recipes.
Cookware that’s just as stylish as it is functional can be hung up high using copper pipes. Secure the pipes with small clamps, and use S-hooks to show off your favorite pots and pans while keeping things in order.
Cabinet storage doesn’t mean you can’t show off your favorite items. Remove the doors to display items used on a regular basis, such as your dinnerware. Or add glass fronts to help keep dust out, which is great for items you use less frequently.
Don't forget about the space above your cabinets. Two feet in height is perfect for decorative dishes, artwork, cookbooks, or any combination of the three. The trick is to use the entire space.
With a little planning and creativity, your kitchen storage problems will be a thing of the past.
