A well-organised and efficient kitchen is a dream for every homemaker and cooking enthusiast. If your kitchen is the heart of your home, then it deserves special attention when it comes to storage solutions.
Keeping your kitchen clutter-free and organised will also help with the room’s function, but also makes it look nicer if everything is in order. In this article, we will explore some brilliant kitchen cupboard storage ideas and kitchen cabinet storage solutions to optimise space and enhance organisation, ensuring your kitchen remains a joy to work in.
Try these easy-to-follow ideas – you don’t necessarily need to buy any new equipment, but you’ll benefit from thinking about what goes where and how to best use your space.
When you don’t have much cupboard space to work with, you might feel limited with how you can organise your kitchen utensils and essentials – but there are lots of ways you can work with your space to create order out of the chaos!
Designate an area of your space to create a cosy kitchen nook that can be used for multiple purposes – whether you create a little pantry, or a seating bench that doubles up as storage for larger kitchen items, or it’s just lots of shelving to host your mug collection. Our guide on how to create a cosy kitchen nook has all the hints and tips you need.
Cooking pots and saucepans can take up significant space in kitchen cabinets. To optimise their storage, consider using pot racks or installing hooks on the inside of cabinet doors to hang them. Another space-saving idea is to use stackable pots and pans, which efficiently make the most of vertical space while keeping your cookware easily accessible – this can help to make your small kitchen look bigger too if you’re working with a narrower cooking space.
Create additional storage space by incorporating hanging shelves or baskets in your kitchen. These can be suspended from the ceiling or mounted on walls, providing a perfect spot to store items like fruits, vegetables, or kitchen towels. Hanging shelves are not only functional but can also add a touch of charm to your kitchen decor.
Sometimes the smallest change can improve your storage situation. Would any of these ideas make sense in your kitchen?
Now you’re making the most of your storage space, let's not forget about the flooring. Our guide on the best flooring for kitchens goes into great detail about all the specifics, but here’s a quick rundown: Laminate, luxury vinyl and engineered wood are all excellent choices for kitchen flooring, where spills and stains are common, due to their durability, easy maintenance, and water-resistance properties. Laminate, vinyl and luxury come in various styles, mimicking the appearance of natural materials like wood or stone, while engineered wood offers a more authentic wood look, but it’s more stable and doesn’t come with the hassle of maintenance like old-fashioned floorboards.
