While it is great to have new cabinets you will find yourself so much happier with your new kitchen if you put some thought into what storage options will benefit you most.  There are more storage options to choose from than you can possibly imagine. Since everyone uses their kitchen a little differently, a custom kitchen remodel is the perfect time to maximize the space of your new kitchen and choose those storage options that make the most sense for you and your household. 

Design Tips for Efficient Kitchen Storage

  • Consider cabinets proximity to appliances. For example, it makes perfect sense to have a pullout spice rack next to your range.  You want items in close proximity to where you will be using them.
  • Put your silverware drawers close to your sink or dishwasher. Have a designated cabinet or drawer for dishes.  It will make clean up easier and more efficient
  • Take advantage of cabinet drawer inserts. Consider a built in utensil caddy for commonly used cooking utensils.
  • While cabinets are typically cost less than drawers some kitchen items work better with drawers. Consider spending a little extra to have the right amount of kitchen drawers for storage.
  • Double stack cabinets to maximize the full space of your kitchen layout
  • Don’t have dead corners and take advantage of kitchen corners such as corner drawer stacks or a lazy Susan.

When you come into Brakur Custom Cabinetry to begin planning your Chicagoland custom kitchen remodel with your kitchen designer be prepared to talk about how your family uses your kitchen.  Some homeowners do more entertaining and may need a kitchen with storage options for a more social kitchen where others use it more to cater children and pets
