How Long Island Kitchen Remodeling Can Help You Create a More Organized Space
Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Even if you have a very large kitchen, chances are you have a good deal of trouble keeping it organized. Kitchens very rarely have enough space. And when they do, a set of pots and pans or a new appliance can force you to try to reorganize the entire room. Between food storage, appliances, and dishes, you run out of room in your kitchen pretty quickly. So what can you do to keep your kitchen organized? A Long Island kitchen remodeling project with some clever and creative design may be able to solve the problem.
Call our Long Island kitchen remodeling contractors to discuss your project and what you’d like to have done. And in the meantime, here are some ideas to help your remodeling project give you a more organized:
One of the benefits of having your Long Island kitchen remodeling project designed specifically for you is that we can build it based on your specific needs. A popular cabinet variation is an upright storage space. This is perfect for sheet pans and baking pans, or even cutting boards. These items are often forced to take up more space than necessary because they have to be laid out flat. But we can add a thinner, taller cabinet area designed specifically for these items. Storing these items upright will save a lot of space. Plus, you won’t have to unstack several other pots and pans to get to them!
Pot and Pan Lid Storage
Where to keep your pot and pan lids can feel like a minor mystery. The pots and pans are stacked, so their lids wind up in a little pile off to the side. So what can you do? Our Long Island kitchen remodeling contractors can help with some creative design.
Underneath the shelf you’ll store your pots and pans on, we’ll install a small roll-out drawer. So your lids can always be right beneath your pots and pans. This will free up storage space and make everything much more organized.
Lazy susans are a great way to get more out of your kitchen’s space. Our Long Island kitchen remodeling contractors can install a lazy susan with multiple levels into any cabinet space. You’ll more than double the amount of storage space in the cabinet by being able to utilize the back and sides of it. This is a popular choice for corner cabinets, where space is frequently sparse. The 360° design allows you to access much more of the space your cabinet has to offer. Lazy susans are great for pots and pans, which often get stacked and shoved away and are very frequently disorganized.
One More Shelf
The shelves inside your cabinets can often get cluttered. Saucers wind up on top of plates, and bowls on top of saucers. You’re stacking to save space, but now every time you a plate, it’s a three-minute ordeal.
We can add another shelf to solve your problem! You don’t need as much room to stack plates as you do for bowls and glasses. So our Long Island kitchen remodeling can install a shelf just a few inches below your middle shelf. Here, you can keep plates and saucers for easy access.
