One of the most common problems in most kitchens is lack of storage space. At UCAN, we understand that whilst large kitchens have the luxury of more space for storage, having a larger kitchen means more space for collecting kitchen appliances and utensils, therefore, storage has to be carefully planned to ensure that the kitchen doesn’t end up looking too crowded.
How to Make the Most of Storage in a Large Kitchen
Luckily, there are plenty of storage tips for large kitchens that will assist you in making the most of your kitchen’s storage space. Keep reading the blog to discover 5 simple tips for making the most of your storage in a large kitchen:
Make Use of a Kitchen Island
If you have a large kitchen that offers up enough floor space to make use of a kitchen island, use this to your advantage when it comes to storage. Not only does the island give you an extra workstation/counter, it also offers you ample extra storage space for pots, pans and other big appliances that take up a large amount of space either on your counter tops or in existing cupboards.
Large Kitchen = Large Cupboards
If you are lucky enough to have a large kitchen area, you are also lucky enough to make use of bigger cupboards for storage. Big elegant double opening door cupboards with ample storage space, walk in pantries for all your groceries and non perishable items and cupboards designated to hold giant pots, pans and appliances are just a few of the many options available to individuals with big kitchens.
Don’t Skimp on Surrounding Cabinets
If your kitchen is large enough, make use of wall-to-wall waist-high cabinets and finish them off with your choice of countertop. By filling the free space with cabinets and countertops, you are dramatically increasing the amount of storage space and ensuring that you have no excuse for a clutter-filled kitchen!
Make Use of Big Drawers
A new stylish trend that is becoming increasingly popular amongst homeowners with large kitchens is making use of pull-out drawers rather than doors and shelves. Drawers have proven to be so much more practical than cupboard doors, as they can be pulled out, store larger items, and eliminate the need to half climb into the cabinet whenever you are on the hunt for a missing Tupperware. This is typically a luxury reserved for large kitchens, as the drawers need to have space to pull out effectively.
Use Wall Space for Cabinets
When it comes to large kitchens, a common problem is that the room often looks quite empty and plain. One way to fix this is to make use of wall units; cabinets, cupboards, shelves and hanging hooks are all wall displays that not only increase the amount of storage space that you have in your kitchen but also make the kitchen feel more full and furnished, removing the open empty space that was there before.
