Kitchen Remodeling Ideas For An Organized & Highly Functional Space
Kitchen remodeling offers you the opportunity to make changes that are important to you. No matter what size of kitchen you have, chances are that you could use at least a little help with keeping it organized.
There’s rarely enough space in most kitchens, so installing a new appliance or getting a new set of pots and pans can force you to rethink how you’ve organized the entire space in the past.
So what is the best way to plan kitchen remodeling to make the space function better? What can you do to ensure your new kitchen stays organized? Here are a few of our favorite customizing ideas to incorporate into the design that will make your kitchen remodeling project outstanding.
Kitchen Remodeling With Custom Shelving
The shelves inside your cabinets can often get cluttered. Saucers wind up on top of plates and bowls on top of saucers. You are constantly stacking to save space but now every time you add a plate, there’s a layer of saucers and bowls that need to be removed first. And then, there’s all those food containers and microwavable dishes that flop around and fall out every time you try to get something. Between food, dishes, and appliances, it’s easy to run out of room in your kitchen for anything else.
Another shelf can be added to solve your problem. Stacks of saucers don’t need as much vertical space as bowls and glasses. So a shelf can be installed just a few inches below the middle shelf. Here, you can keep plates and saucers neatly out of the way until you need them. A drawer can serve as a great plastic container storage solution. Just have a thin vertical board installed to dedicate a small part of the space for lid storage.
Custom Remodel Your Kitchen With Lazy Susans
Lazy Susans are a great and popular way to maximize your kitchen’s space and they can easily be installed during your kitchen remodeling project. Install a lazy Susan with multiple levels into your cabinets. Small Lazy Susans are great to store and access spices and the larger ones are perfect for pots and pans. You’ll double (at least!) the amount of storage space in the cabinet by being able to utilize the back and sides of it easily and efficiently.
Lazy Susan cabinets are a popular custom style for corners where space is frequently sparse and hard to access. Lazy Susans are easily installed here. The 360° design allows you to access all of the space of the cabinet. They are great for pots and pans which often get stacked, shoved away, and easily disorganized.
Vertical Shelving For Kitchen Remodeling
With the right kitchen remodeling contractor, you can have all the custom features you like. One of the benefits of having your kitchen design created just for you is that it will be designed and built based on the specific needs of the space and your own personal needs.
A popular cabinet variation is vertical shelving. This is perfect for sheet pans and baking pans or even cutting boards. These flat, long kitchen tools are cumbersome to use and store because they have to be laid out flat. A cabinet with vertical shelving is designed specifically for these items to make using and storing them easier. Storing these items upright will save a lot of space that you need elsewhere. Plus, you won’t have to unstack several other pots and pans to get to them!
Pot and Pan Lid Storage
Where to keep the lids of your pots and pans is one of the problematic parts of organizing a kitchen. The pots and pans are stacked, so their lids wind up in a little pile off to the side. So what can you do? Since you are remodeling, this is the time to get it right. A Kansas City kitchen remodeling professionals can help with some creative designs. Here’s one idea from our pros at Shawnee Mission Builders.
Underneath the shelf you’ll store your pots and pans on, we can install a small roll-out drawer. This is a great place to store the lids because they are right below the pots and pans. This will free up storage space and make everything much more organized.
