Finding enough storage space in your kitchen can be a nightmare.

Even large rooms can have poor storage and many people find that they just throw things into the first cupboard that they see. Not only does this make it a pain to find anything but opening a cupboard door to look for the coffee and having 5 things fly out at you isn’t the best way to start your day.

Basically what we are saying is that your storage space is inadequate but that doesn’t mean you need to go out and buy a whole new kitchen. We looked at some ways to improve storage space in your kitchen a while ago and we are back to show you why you aren’t making use of the space available to you.

You Aren’t Using Your Walls

Do you have a lot of empty walls in your kitchen? Why aren’t you adding shelves?

So many people don’t make use of something that is incredibly simple to give you more storage space. A few shelves added to your walls will give you much better room in your kitchen to place herbs, bottles, glasses or pots and also that coffee jar we mentioned earlier They are not only an inexpensive addition to your kitchen but something that can be installed with ease and it keeps the clutter off your work surfaces.

What About The Top Of Your Cabinets?

Look up to the ceiling in your kitchen? What is on the top of your cabinets? Probably nothing.

Unless you have an unusually high ceiling that can’t be reached even with a small step ladder then you are not utilising your storage space correctly. The top of your cabinets are a great place to store things that you don’t use that often but they are still on hand when you need them. Seriously, move the lesser used items in your kitchen up here to free up space for the things that you use everyday.

Have You Even Organised Your Cupboards?

We all do it. We come home and just fire the shopping into whatever cupboard you think it should go in. The same happens after you wash up.

Organising your cupboards correctly will give you more storage options. It isn’t even hard to do this. Follow the great tips in our previous post to organise your kitchen cupboards properly and you will be amazed at how much room you now have to put things away. Just don’t come back from Tesco and throw everything into the cabinets without thinking.

Improving Your Storage Space

It doesn’t take a lot of effort to improve the storage in your kitchen. In fact, just a few simple things can really make a big difference in the space that you have available to you.

Adding some shelves, putting rarely used items on top of your cabinets and organising your cupboards properly are 3 really simple tips that you greatly enhance your storage space. These can be used in small, medium and large kitchens. Just because your room is big doesn’t mean that you have a lot of storage options available.

Your storage might be inadequate now but a few tricks will give you the space that you need.
