4 Ways To Maximize Cabinet Space In Your Kitchen Design

Construction & Contractors Blog

When designing a kitchen, you want to make sure that you have enough room to store all of your kitchen tools, supplies, and food. With the need to add in counter space, windows, appliances, and even furniture pieces, it takes good planning in order to ensure that you have enough cabinet, and thus storage space, in your kitchen.

#1 Be Flexible With Door & Window Placement

The first thing you need to be willing to do is to be flexible with door and window placement as you design your kitchen. Maybe the window would go best over the top of the oven instead of over the sink. Being flexible with moving around the doors and windows to get the best use of the space as you design your kitchen can help you take advantage of the space and add as much storage as possible.

#2 Use Cabinets That Reach the Ceiling

Don't leave an awkward gap between your cabinets and the ceiling. Although you could use that space to decorate with, the truth is that generally when there is open space between your cabinets and your ceiling, that space turns into a dust trap. Make the most use of this space by extending your cabinets all the way up to the ceiling.

If you want more display space, install some glass cabinet doors so you can show off decorations or special kitchen pieces.

#3 Install Corner Cabinets

Don't allow corners to turn into dead spaces. In any corner of your kitchen, install corner cabinets. Corner cabinets have come a long way and can include moveable shelves that allow you to take advantage of all the space that a corner cabinet has to offer. Corner cabinets can really increase your storage space, so be sure to include some in your kitchen.

#4 Install Drawers Instead of Doors

Consider installing drawers instead of doors in your base cabinets. The base cabinets are the cabinets that sit on the ground. Installing drawers instead of doors can make the space easier to use. Drawers can be a great way to break up the space and can make it easier for you to access the items that you put in that space.

#5 Have One Wall for Floor-to-Ceiling Storage

As you design your kitchen, make sure that you have one wall for floor-to-ceiling storage. Dedicating one wall to floor-to-ceiling storage will help ensure that you have the space you need for all of your kitchen tools and food. It can also provide you with extra storage space for other items as well.

If you are designing your own kitchen, you control how much storage space you end up with. Be flexible and willing to move around door and window locations, use cabinets that reach the ceiling, make use of corners with corner cabinets, use drawers instead of doors on base cabinets, and dedicate at least one wall in your kitchen entirely to storage.
