Remodeling your Davidsonville kitchen is a delicate balancing act. On the one hand, you want to ensure that the new kitchen looks appealing—that it’s an aesthetically pleasant room in which you and your family members can spend quality time. At the same time, though, there are practical considerations to take into account—like creating sufficient space for storage, for cooking, and so forth. Is there anything that homeowners can do to add a bit of extra storage space to their potentially cramped Davidsonville kitchen? A few tricks of the trade spring to mind:
Use a pegboard.
This DIY fix may not be to everyone’s tastes, but those who have vintage or retro kitchens may wish to think about adding a painted pegboard, from which they can hang things like pots and pans and kitchen tools. This not only saves shelving and drawer space, but the colored pegboard can add a beautiful and feisty accent to any kitchen area.
Get a standalone pantry.
You may not have much pantry space in your home, but there’s no reason why you can’t add a bit more. Investing in a metal shelving unit and positioning it in a corner or out of the way somewhere can give you a convenient place to store food.
Buy some cabinet inserts.
Even some simple wire frame inserts can provide you with additional storage in your cabinets or pantry. You can also use some shelving inserts to store large kitchen items—like mixing bowls or serving platters—on top of your cabinet units.
Install an open shelf.
You may not have the space to install new cabinets, but perhaps you do have space for a simple, standalone, open shelf—on which you can store a toaster, cook books, or what have you.
Get a pedestal table.
Finally, you can get a small table to place in the corner—using it as a kind of makeshift breakfast nook but also allowing yourself more space to cook and to store items as needed.
It is difficult, sometimes, to create new kitchen storage space, as you’re limited by your square footage—but not by your creativity or your resourcefulness. For more insights into the kitchen remodeling process, we invite you to call or e-mail Integrity Home Pro today. Photo credit: GreyHouseInc.
