The first step towards an organized living is to de clutter. Pull out everything from the cabinets and donate or get rid of stuff you have not used for a while now. The aim is to keep only those things that are used. Arrange things in order of usage. Items used on rare occasions on higher shelves and things you need daily on the lower racks.

2. Utilize Wall Space:

Floor space is limited but the walls are all ours. A clever use of walls to create more storage space by using shelves, racks, wall panels can make more room in a kitchen with minimal storage options. Create your own smart solutions by buying an assortment of wall storage cabinets and shelves

A hand rail, hooks, rods and pegs can be used for the hanging purpose anywhere.

Smart Kitchen Storage Solutions:

No rage over storage

  • Get extra kitchen cabinets and trolleys with portable boxes, which are great for items you rarely use but still need in your modular kitchen.
  • Use a vertical shelving rack to free up the counter and get some extra storage space.

Double up

  • Use towel rods or wall panels as floating cutlery holders: Hang mason jars form the rods using ‘S’ hooks and fill them up with cutlery, utensils or even some flowers to brighten things up.
  • Hanging the rod at eye-level ensures you don’t need to bend every time you need a dishrag or ladle.

Maximize your workstation

  • Store everyday kitchenware on a rack or a pegboard.
  • You’ll also benefit by using fitted shelving units to store things that need to be at room temperature.
  • A two- or three-tiered hanging wire basket would also work wonders for fruits, veggies and breads.

Put your fridge to work

  • Putting a wire rack or a clear desk organizer in your fridge will greatly increase the number of goodies you can store – and you can see them clearly. Since they’re plastic or wire-mesh, they can be stacked.
  • For those of us who aren’t blessed with a pantry, hang a multifunctional organizer onto the side of the fridge – it’s great for storing kitchen accessories.

Roll it along!

  • Store fruits, nuts, snacks and spices in a utility cart that can live under your kitchen sink and be rolled out when you need it. You could even store cleaning supplies in these versatile trolleys.
  • They could also work just as well for beverages, barware and mixers.

Visual pleasure

  • Make the most of the underside of your wall cabinets by screwing mason-jar caps to them. Voilà! A set of floating Mason jars that elegantly store and display your pasta, pretzels, popcorn kernels and whatever else.
