Kitchen Renovation Ideas to Help Maximise Your Kitchen Storage Space

August 9, 2021

When making plans to renovate your kitchen, one aspect that you are most likely focusing on is maximising your kitchen storage space. If you are fortunate to have a pantry that adjoins your food prepping and cooking areas, the pantry may suffice for any extra storage space needed.

However, with the constant flow of new kitchen equipment and small portable appliances on the consumer market, there is an ever-increasing need for additional storage areas in many kitchens today. Many family kitchens also need more storage cabinets and cupboards for holding multiple sets of dinnerware, glassware, cutlery and table service. You may also need extra room to stow a high chair and baby food and supplies if you have a growing baby in your household.

Renovation Plans to Help Maximise Your Kitchen Storage Space

Helpful ideas and plans for maximising your kitchen storage space include the following:

  • Floor-to-Ceiling Cabinetry. If you install attractive timber floor-to-ceiling cabinets with clear glass-pane doors above your benchtop and food-prepping counters, you may be amazed at just how much storage room they can provide. If you have a pantry in a corner or adjoining your kitchen, this style of cabinetry can be installed easily there as well. Although the top cabinets are at a high level, a sturdy track ladder can enable you to reach all of your stored items in these handsome cabinets.
  • Plenty of Open Shelving. Open shelves are available in myriad widths, lengths and styles. They can be installed at high or low points on your kitchen walls according to the overall design and decor of this interior. Open shelves are handy since you can spot everything that is stored on them with a glance. It is also easy to arrange items of multiple sizes and shapes on these shelves. They are ideal for storing sets of items like spice jars, dishes and glassware as well.
  • Swing-Out Cabinets. Contemporary cabinet designs are wall-mounted to swing outward for easy access when needed and swing back to the wall when not in use. They are especially helpful for storing items that you need for special occasions or for preparing certain recipes, but not for everyday use. Mounted on sturdy movable braces and rods, these mobile cabinets are becoming all the rage in some locations today.
  • Under-Island Cupboards. When you install spacious cupboards beneath your kitchen island-top, you will enjoy spacious areas for storing large items. These cupboards can easily store the larger of your "small" portable kitchen appliances. They are also useful as places to keep large bags of flour, grains, tall cereal boxes, paper supplies or pet food.
