Storage Options

Make sure your kitchen space has plenty of storage. The cupboards in your kitchen and pantry are highly functional places to store food items. This is especially true if you’re cooking with a gas range. It’s easy to see where you’ll need food ingredients and where your food ingredients are stored.

Store your pots and pans in attractive containers

Pot and pan storage is one of the best ways to declutter your kitchen. All the while, you’ll be able to find everything you need from the countertops to the bottom of the kitchen cabinets.

Invest in deep drawers

Drawer drawers have come a long way from the decoration of small jars and bottles. These are the perfect space savers. To maximize your storage, look for deep drawers that hold everything from spoons to whisks.

Use your countertop space

Countertops are the perfect place to store food ingredients, cookbooks, and plasticware. Look for countertops that are flat and functional, such as granite. Have a wide base so you can staple it to the countertop.

Put down a shelf

For a minimalistic kitchen, store plastic containers with jars on top of the countertops. When you need to quickly access a product, such as a blender or toaster, behind the counter, you can stash the items on the shelves.

Use a rack

As a stylish addition to your kitchen, racks can keep cooking utensils, pans, and other kitchen essentials in their proper place.

Hang a shelf

Whether you have a kitchen with a bar or not, a shelf in the kitchen is a perfect place to store these items. The key to keeping this shelf useful is making sure it has at least one side that opens up. You can use a magnetic dry erase board to make sure you’re able to find what you’re looking for. This can be helpful for kitchen clutter such as bread, cookies, and pasta.
