Organizational Tips for Kansas City Remodeling Projects


The kitchen is perhaps the most important room in your Kansas City household. Some of your family’s most cherished memories are made within the kitchen. Your family gathers in the kitchen after a long day of work and school. These conversations are often the best part of our day. The professional kitchen remodelers at Shawnee Mission Builders are constantly focused on maximizing your family’s enjoyment of its Kansas City kitchen.

Your kitchen is also the most important room when it comes to entertaining. When you invite guests into your home, it is very likely that you will be cooking for them. Not only will the kitchen be the area where the meal is prepared, but it is also likely to be a place where guests congregate. The kitchen design team at Shawnee Mission Builders understands that a kitchen must both look great and function well.

When you consider remodeling your Kansas City kitchen, you should remember that your project goals should focus both on the look and layout of your kitchen. Nothing can be more frustrating than trying to entertain or gather in a poorly laid out kitchen space.

At Shawnee Mission Builders, their experienced kitchen remodelers know how to maximize the useful space of your kitchen. Here are a few tips on how you can increase the storage space and organization of your kitchen, so that you, your family, and your friends can enjoy your Kansas City kitchen remodeling project to the utmost.

Vertical Storage Space for Baking Sheets

For some reason, everyone stores baking sheets directly on top of each other below the range. This storage method is highly inefficient and extremely frustration. It prevents you from finding the exact cooking sheet that you need, and when you do find it, you have to pull out three others to get the chosen one out.

The kitchen remodelers at Shawnee Mission Builders suggest that you add vertical storage space in one of your cabinets for baking sheets. By storing these items vertically, each will be readily identifiable and retrievable.

Pull Down Stand for Tablet

Cooking like a professional in this day and age has become extremely easy. All we have to do is go online and pick a fancy recipe to call our own. The problem is we have to follow that recipe while we are cooking. Switching between the stovetop and your tablet can be quite the hassle.

The expert kitchen designers at Shawnee Mission Builders can install a stand for your tablet that will come down from underneath your upper cabinets. In this way, the recipe will always be right in front of you for easy access.

Drawer for Pot Lids

Perhaps the most frustrating storage problem common to most kitchens involves the pot storage area. Because storage space is slight, we often separate pots from lids so that we can place the pots within each other. When it comes to finding the lid, we are usually left confusticated.

The kitchen remodeling pros at Shawnee Mission Builders suggest adding a drawer underneath your traditional pot shelf. With this simple solution, you will never have to go searching for a pot lid ever again.
