Easy Kitchen Storage Ideas

Guest post written by friend Vicky Dean

Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes. Some of us have room in abundance whilst others barely have room to turn around. With so many pots, pans and modern kitchen accessories you can soon find that your cupboards are full and your workspaces are overcrowded. With a little bit of rearrangement and some nifty storage solutions you can soon put your kitchen in order and really maximize the space that you do have.

Tea Towel Storage 

Tea towels are only small but because you have to leave them out to dry they really can clutter up your kitchen. Clean tea towels are usually kept in a kitchen draw and then hung precariously on draw knobs or handles to dry out. More often than not they find their way on to the floor and end up dirtier and messier than ever. This is where over the door tea towel rails come in handy. There is no screwing or drilling involved as you simply hook the rail over one of your cupboard doors. They are very useful because you do not need to find a dedicated space for the rail to go and you are making the most of something that already exists in your kitchen.

Free up some cupboard space 

If your cupboard space is limited you need to try and find new ways of storing your jars and other food products. Half of the time your space is being wasted by goods with enormous amounts of exterior packaging that can easily be removed and stored without it. If you are still struggling then maybe you could try a door rack. They can be easily fixed on to the inside of any cupboard door and are wide enough to store bottles in but not so wide that they end up taking up all of the interior of the cupboard! They are great for things like condiments, vinegars, spices and even cleaning products.

Hang it up 

One of the most spacious yet overlooked places in your kitchen is that which is overhead. With a little bit of creativity and a ladder you can make the most of this space by fixing up a hanging rail. Hanging rails are best for hanging saucepans and other large utensils from.  You need to make sure that the rail is hung at the right height so you can reach your pots and pans but it isn’t so low that you keep crashing into it!
