We all spend a lot of time in our kitchens. Especially if we have families, it seems like as soon as one meal is done, it’s time to start on the next one. Because your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your house, having it organized just the way you want it is essential. If you’re having trouble making the most of your kitchen, new cabinets in Amherst from NH Woodworks is a great place to start. But there’s a lot more you can do, too!
Here are four tips to help you make your kitchen more functional.
Install Ceiling-High Cabinets
If you have a small kitchen, you need to take advantage of every bit of space you can. Cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling draw the eye upward and make the room look bigger. Not only that, but it also gives you more storage space. You can put appliances or cookware that you don’t use as often on the high shelves and keep your everyday items within reach. Or, if you have anything especially fragile, you can easily keep them out of the reach of the kids.
Add Rolling Shelves
When you’re in the middle of making dinner, the last thing you want to do is root around in a low cabinet looking for the appliance or pan you need. Rolling shelves in the cabinets under your counter will save you time and back pain. Instead of reaching to the back of the cabinet, pull out the shelf and let the back of the cabinet come to you.
Put Racks on Your Cabinet Doors
You’d be amazed at how much stuff can fit in a cabinet if you are smart about how you use the space. Put racks on the inside of your cabinet doors to hold everything from cutting boards to dish towels.
Hang Pots and Pans
Pulling the pan you need out of a stack in your cabinet is a real pain. And pots take up a lot of space in a cabinet or on a shelf. Install hooks underneath a shelf or cabinet to hang your pots and pans. If you don’t have that kind of space, you can install a rack that hangs from the ceiling. You’ll save so much space and time when you can just lift the pan you need right off the hook instead of yanking it out of the cabinet.
