Kitchen and bathroom cabinets, while having a huge effect on overall style, also contribute greatly to how well kitchens and bathrooms can be organized. There are few things more annoying than walking into a room and not knowing where something you urgently need can be found. If you are planning on expanding the size of your kitchen or bath just to accommodate more storage units, think again. There are ways to utilize and improve existing cabinetry to help you lead a more decluttered and stress-free life.
Make a Storage Plan
First, figure out how much storage you actually need. Declutter your home and choose to keep only the most essential things. Once you know how much stuff you have, plan accordingly. Every single fixture or appliance should have a space dedicated for it alone.
Equip Cabinet Doors and Drawers
Have existing cabinet doors fitted with hooks and smaller shelving units. This method works best for kitchen cabinets which can house items of varying sizes, from small measuring spoons to large dinner plates and pans. Use drawer inserts to avoid having to rummage through all sorts of things before finding the one item you are looking for.
Convert as much vertical space as you can for storage. Have existing cabinets extended all the way up to the ceiling. Use racks and tiered organizers in lieu of irregularly shaped boxes or bags. Store a ladder within easy reach so you can access higher storage levels more easily.
