Kitchen Storage Solutions Tips

Kitchen Storage Solutions Tips

Kitchen Storage Solutions Tips; Keeping a tidy kitchen cannot only make cooking meals at home just a little bit easier, but also a lot more pleasant. Get your kitchen organised, with plenty of good storage space, you might find yourself spending less money on eating out. Here are six kitchen storage ideas that will cut the clutter and create a well organised kitchen where cooking is a pleasure.

Top Row:

Keeping pots, pans and lids together is one of the biggest obstacles to organising your kitchen. If you can install a two-tiered cookware organiser. It helps you store pots and pans while maximising the most out of your cabinet space. Say goodbye to reorganising pots, pans or lids every time you take one off the shelf.

Countertop space is essential to a functional, organised kitchen, and nothing eats up space like small appliances– especially the larger, heavier machines such as mixers or juicers. We say keep them in a cabinet, and if possible seek out a kitchen heavy duty lift system do the heavy lifting for you. When you’re done et the lift system/shelf lower it back into the cabinet, out of sight.

Middle Row:

Although herbs and spices are small, they consume a lot of space inside cabinets. Improve your cooking efficiency with a in cupboard spice rack or pull down shelf from Howdens (as pictured). It’s the easiest way to keep spices organised, stored and close at hand!

Save time searching for scissors or stamps by giving your junk drawer a makeover. If you’re not sure where to begin (a.k.a. having a really messy junk drawer), start by emptying everything out. Once you’ve sorted things you want to keep and things you want to discard, repurpose household items like small food jars or egg cartons as storage for small items. Then divide and conquer by using a tableware drawer organiser to hold anything from batteries to lint rollers. Also to be extra organised label the containers so you know what is in each one at a glance.

Bottom Row:

Finding enough cabinet space in your kitchen can be a never-ending battle. While it’s hard to make new cabinet space magically appear, installing shelves isn’t as difficult. Consider adding floating shelves to your kitchen walls for a stylish way to store everyday items like mixing bowls or crockery. This is also a great project for a chef who loves having cookbooks close at hand.

Noisy baking sheets is a familiar noise in most kitchens. Keep your cookie sheets, drying racks and pizza pans in upright storage with a cabinet tray divider that rolls out. Install a second tray divider specifically for cutting boards, cheese trays or pizza peels.

A Kitchen Worktop with the WOW factor

A Kitchen Worktop with the WOW Factor

Finding a high quality kitchen worktop that not only is durable, resistant, solid but that look great and finishes your kitchen off with a ‘wow’ factor can seem like a daunting and tedious task, especially if it needs the requirements of a busy kitchen, family or the experienced chef.

Not only is performance and appearance important in a worktop, but it also needs to stand up to a variety of uses whilst complementing your kitchen frontal.

If you have read our blogs before you may be aware we have installed Howden kitchens for many years.  Their range of attractive and durable kitchens, accessories as well as worktops are of an outstanding quality.  In particular their laminates which are available in 38mm and 28mm thicknesses. The 38mm is available in a choice of gloss, matt, smooth and textured finishes and in bullnose and square edged profiles.

As Howden’s are such an amazing stockist/supplier of high quality kitchens, they also have a range of solid wood worktops which are available to create a premium finish for your kitchen in 40mm and 27mm thicknesses.

The majority of Howdens worktops are 616mm deep, which allows for a deeper overhang. The overall result is of an exceptional quality, workmanship and definitely gives the ‘wow’ factor.

And the added bonus of a Howden’s  worktop is that they come with a 1 year manufacturer’s guarantee. In the unlikely event of a defect in manufacturing or raw materials, they will happily replace any worktop promptly and without charge.

Obviously there are many worktops on the market but in our experience we have found Howden’s to be of a superior quality and performance.
