One of the main goals of a kitchen remodel is often to increase the amount of storage space in a room that is frequently one of the most crowded in the house. To achieve this goal for your kitchen remodeling in Lancaster, read our tips below!
Storage Tips for Kitchen Remodeling in Lancaster
Take it all the way up.
Extend your kitchen cabinets all the way up to the ceiling. This is a great way to utilize space that would otherwise go unused. It’s also a good place to store those items that you need in your kitchen, but perhaps not on a regular basis. Even if your ceiling extends down to meet your cabinets, you may be able to take advantage of this space if the ceiling is hollow here.
Look for hollow space.
Speaking of hollow space, it’s not uncommon for the space behind interior walls, ceilings, and even floors to be hollow. If you can, open up these spaces and create nice little niches or additional cabinet space for more storage. If you knock on the surface and here an open, echoing sound, there’s a good chance the space is hollow. There might be wiring or other work located here, so this isn’t a guarantee, but if there’s nothing there, knock it out and get storing!
Convert a closet.
Do you find a nearby closet goes unused, or gets cluttered with miscellaneous items? Convert it into dedicated kitchen storage space! A great way to do this is with pull out shelves, for multiple levels of easy access storage. Or try the pantry approach for wall-storage if you have the room.
Keep it rolling.
Inside your kitchen, you can keep it rolling with wheeled shelving. This movable storage space is great to bring those frequently used kitchen items with you wherever you need them. Make sure you have a place to store this when you don’t need it as well, otherwise it will get in the way. Next to the refrigerator might be a good spot.
