Cabinets are one of the most important spaces in our homes — no, really. Cabinets and drawers help to hide some of the unlovely elements of our lives. While they contain the clutter from public spaces, that doesn’t mean they can’t be organized themselves. When things feel dysfunctional in our own lives, coming home to an organized space can make all of the difference. And cabinets, if they’re structured properly, can greatly improve your experience in the kitchen or greater home around you.
These days, with COVID-19 a major factor in Arizona, we’re all spending a lot more time at home. Why not put that time to good use and invest in organizing our cabinets so that they’re most efficient? Here are a few tips for how you can maximize cabinet space in your own home:
Use Shelf Risers
Adding shelf risers to cabinets is a total game changer. Regardless of whether you have a horizontal or vertical cabinet space, you can purchase shelf risers on the cheap which will help to add layers to your storage space. Not every product or utensil is made to be stacked — but with shelf risers, they can be.
Stack Versus Stand.
If you want to maximize cabinet space, you have to be flexible. While it might require a few attempts to organize these areas properly, it will be so worth it in the end. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to play around with different structures. Consider what can be stacked versus stood to ensure optimum storage space. Stacking items can save space, but that doesn’t mean it’s the most efficient approach to revising your cabinets. Try to only stack items like bowls or cups, and then stand items on end like cookie sheets or pans. This will maximize space, and it will also make it easier to remove items when needed.
Add Hooks to Cabinet Doors.
Using storage tools like containers or organizers is helpful in structuring the groundwork of a cabinet — but, who says you can’t also maximize the wall space of cabinets, too? The next time you organize your home storage space, consider incorporating hooks on the inner walls of your cabinets. Measuring cups, spoons and mixer attachments are lightweight kitchen essentials that can hang seamlessly from these hooks, and they’ll offer you more space for other items in drawers and cabinets.
Corral what you can.
Loose kitchen items can contribute to cabinets feeling small and messy. Bulky pieces like tupperware or baking/measuring utensils are easy to store in separate organizational containers, and it can help maximize on making your cabinet space feel less cluttered. Consider using baskets or bins to store all of these kitchen products in. Not only can they help brighten up a space with multicolor designs, but they can also limit unused space — just ensure that they fit perfectly within each individual cabinet.
Get stackable containers.
Maintaining uniformity in container size and shape is imperative for maximizing cabinet storage. Not only will it condense the space that these containers take up, but it will also make your items look neater and more organized. There’s also a lot of stackable containers on the market that feature labels which will help you clearly identify your food and beautify your pantry or cabinet space.
