Providing storage space in the kitchen is something that must be done, especially in a kitchen with a limited space. No need to use a special cabinet to store various kitchen equipment and foodstuff, you can be creative by transforming the kitchen into a multifunctional storage area. Here are some ideas that you can follow and apply in your kitchen.
Maximize the wall
Installing hanging shelves on the wall is the most effective solution to create storage space. The height of the hanging shelves is even can be maximized up to the ceiling so that the storage space becomes more spacious. In order not to look monotonous, combine hanging shelves with wall shelves for displaying accessories or putting spices jars.
Classifying according to the function
To make it easier to taking the stuff needed when doing activities in the kitchen, you should classify the kitchen stuff according to the function. For example, one special cabinet for storing tableware such as plates, bowls, and cups, a row of drawers for storing spoons, forks, and knives, and also cabinets for storing unused foodstuff. This way, the kitchen will look tidier and well-organized.
Open or closed
There are two types of storage cabinets that you can apply in the kitchen, i.e. open cabinet and closed cabinet. Each of them has advantages and disadvantages. The open cabinet will look nice if you put a pile of lovely plates or spices jars neatly. However, the disadvantage is you have to make sure they are always neat.
If you have a lot of stuff, you should choose a closed cabinet so that the kitchen always looks tidy. To make it look interesting, use bright colors on the coating of the cabinet door or choose frosted glass or sandblasted glass material as an accent.
Utilize the kitchen island
Besides wall mounted cabinet, you can also utilize the kitchen island as storage space. Not just storing the kitchen stuff, shelves or cabinet in the kitchen island also have a double function as a shoe cabinet or magazine storage shelf.
It’s simple and easy, right? Good luck on creating storage space in your kitchen!
