Stow vs Show: Kitchen Storage

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.

Hang It Up

Magnetized jars hang underneath the cabinet

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.

Store More

Measuring cups hung from rods and recipes stuck on corkboard

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.

Use a curtain rod under the sink to hang cleaning sprays. Keep a roll of trash bags within easy reach by hanging a paper towel holder on the inside of a cabinet door.

Think Vertically

Adhesive hooks hold cutting boards

Utilize the sides of your cabinets. Adjustable adhesive hooks can be moved around as needed. Just pull the strip to remove them.

Show Off Your Cookware

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.

Then use the side of a cabinet and drapery rods to store lids. You can also hang pegboard to show off your bakeware.

Change Your Cabinet Fronts

Glasses doors show off your best glassware

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.

Add an Island

Whether modern, rustic or traditional, an island reflects your kitchen style. Not only does it provide additional work space, it's a great place to store extra dinnerware and supplies.

Utilize Every Inch of Space

Cookbooks placed on the top of kitchen cabinets

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.
