Be Smart When Creating Pull-Out Storage During Your Next Kitchen Remodel
Pull-out storage can be a lifesaver in any kitchen, but especially those kitchens that are simply not working well for the homeowner. Are you trying to make do with the space you have in your kitchen? Did you know that pull-out storage can save you a lot of headaches when you are making meals and cleaning up afterwards?
There are many options to consider during a kitchen renovation relative to pull-out storage and you can easily choose the ones that will work best for your needs and the needs of your family.
Pull-Out Storage Cabinets
Pull-out storage cabinets can be installed anywhere you have some free space in your kitchen. You know those small areas in between cabinets or between the cabinets and your sink or dishwasher? All those ordinarily wasted spaces can become functional for you when you simply choose to install pull-out storage cabinets in those areas.
Some pull-out storage cabinets are quite small. Those smaller cabinets mainly fit items like spices and some canned goods. It is best to fit these types of pull-out storage cabinets near the stove or where you prepare most of your meals. The reason for this is the cabinets will make your life much easier, since you won’t need to go back and forth to your larger pantry to get anything. This option will save you a lot of time as well.
Larger pull-out storage cabinet areas can be used too if you have the space for them. Those storage cabinets are excellent for when you need a place to put your garbage can and recycling bins. You can pull them out when you need them and keep them closed and out of the way the rest of the time. We love fitting the storage cabinets for garbage and recycling near the sink when possible, because it makes it so much easier during clean up.
You can even use the larger pull-out storage cabinets as your pantry if you cannot fit a pantry anywhere else in your kitchen.
Roll Out Storage Cabinets
Cabinets can easily become a jumbled mess, especially if they are large and you are trying to fit too much stuff in them. We recommend installing roll out storage in your cabinets to alleviate the mess you are inevitably going to find after a few weeks.
The roll out storage is basically a tray on wheels, and you can fit multiple shelves inside each cabinet if you want to. All you need to do is pull out the shelf you need and push it back in when you are done. These shelves will allow you to put dishes away much easier, because everything will be much more organized. There is even a special shelf for those cabinets where you store your pots and pans. The pots and pans fit on one shelf and the lids go on the shelves that don’t slide out above.
While you will love the roll out storage for your dishes and pots and pans, we know you will also love it for your pantry. You will never need to worry about losing your favorite baking mix or that can of diced peaches ever again.
You can easily organize each shelf and keep like items together. Plus, since you are just pulling one shelf out at a time, the chances of things being put back where they belong is much greater. This means your entire family can help keep your kitchen neat and organized!
The best part about these two types of storage cabinets is that you can install them anywhere in your kitchen that you like. The pull-out storage cabinets can go in between upper cabinets or lower cabinets, so you will never need to worry about not having enough space for them in your kitchen. While the roll out storage cabinets work best in the lower cabinets, you can install a variation of them in the upper cabinets if you can ensure functionality.
If you are tired of the lack of space and functionality in your kitchen, it is time to be smart when it comes to creating pull-out storage during your next kitchen remodel. Instead of dealing with your lack of storage and not having a place to put everything in this space, you can easily create a little extra storage space without increasing the size of your kitchen.
A few smart moves will have you using your spices more often, finding things with ease, and even putting your dishes away without everything toppling over on you. The best part is that your kitchen will still look stylish and will match your existing décor.
