How to Store More in Your Kitchen

How to Store More in Your Kitchen
Are you struggling with how to store more in your kitchen? Well, the kitchens in the Glenn Layton Atlantic Beach FL homes for sale are already spacious, bright, and finished with beautiful details, but every kitchen benefits from a well-organized layout. With these tips, you can make any kitchen feel more spacious, while also making it easier to use.

Whether you’ve got a full pantry or simply lots of cabinet space, it is important to have a well-organized system for your dry goods. A mixture of shelves and baskets can help you take advantage of all of your storage space, by enabling you to see every item at a glance. Dry goods such as cereal, flour, sugar, chocolate chips and any other good that typically comes in a bag should be stored in clear, air-tight, stackable containers. Not only does it keep them from spilling and leaking, but you can see at a glance how much you have left.

Lots of people store their cleaning supplies under the kitchen sink, but all of those bottles and sponges and scrubbers can easily become jumbled. A simple over-the-door wire organizer is a handy spot to keep sponges, rags, trash bags, and other small items, leaving the cabinet free for larger spray bottles and other cleaners.

Glenn Layton homes feature spacious kitchens that are ideal for adding in free-standing pieces of furniture that can be used for storage, while also adding style and seaside charm. A rustic, glass-door cabinet in stained, weathered wood is a perfect coastal addition to a kitchen, offering a great place to store everything from your daily dishes to your special china and stemware. This opens up more of your cabinet space for items you don’t want on display.

People often store items in jars or stands on the counter for items they use frequently, but you can free up your counter space while still having items close at hand by using the walls themselves. Magnetic knife strips, and bars and hooks that can hang everything from spatulas to spice racks are just a few of the ways to get your walls to work for you, while still being neat and stylish.

Don’t forget your kitchen island when it comes to making the most of your storage space. Open cubby holes within the body of the island or shelves and nooks at the end are a great place to store items such as cookbooks or other kitchen collectibles that can add coastal charm to your home.

By making the most of your hidden storage space, you can use open shelves to display decorative vases, shell collections, or anything else that complements your coastal décor. With just a few smart shelves, dividers, and racks, your kitchen will have a space for everything, keeping it all easily at hand.
