Kitchen storage

Maximizing Kitchen Storage


No matter what size your kitchen, the more storage space you have, the better organized you’ll be, whether you’re whipping up a gourmet dinner or simply making a grilled ham and cheese sandwich.

And scoring extra storage space doesn’t mean you need a total kitchen re-do. You can implement one—or all seven—of the following hints in no time at all.

  1. Hang up mugs. Hang hooks for mugs inside cabinet doors, on a wall, or underneath cabinets, to gain extra shelf space.
  2. Hang up stemware, too. A stemware rack mounted underneath a cabinet is another way to gain shelf space. Plus, the easy accessibility comes in handy when entertaining.

  • Plants: Houseplants are terrific options for incorporating texture. Succulents, cacti, begonias, palms, bromeliads and spider plants are just a few of the hundreds of statement-making choices.
  • Woven baskets: Woven baskets not only add texture; they also serve double-duty as storage bins (for those errant remotes, magazines and dog toys).
  • Accent pieces: While you want to steer clear of creating what looks like clutter, a ceramic, wooden or glass accent piece or two adds variety.
  • Wall décor: Traditional framed prints are fine, but why not think outside the box and consider metal wall art, macramé wall hangings, tapestries or mirrors with unique frames?
  • Pillows and throws: Layering pillows and throws adds texture while also upping the coziness of a room. You’ll find lots of throw pillow options with interesting weaves—and even tassels—as well as throws in a variety of fabrics.
  • Area rugs: Like pillows and throws, area rugs come in a wide range of materials and weaves. Rugs crafted of natural fibers, like jute or sisal, as well as shag rugs or those with raised pile, help define a space.
