4 Ways to Get More Out of Your Kitchen Cabinets

Maykel Sloothaak

If it's been a while since you last checked out the variety of kitchen cabinets available on the market, you might be surprised at all the new ways you can use the space in your kitchen. Innovative designs blend the modern, fresh look you want to incorporate with features you can really use to make your home more welcoming, especially to you. Here are just a few of your options:

Sliding Drawers Under the Sink

Have you ever dug around for something under your kitchen sink and wound up making a bigger mess? The cabinets under the sink are notorious for becoming a black hole of cleaning products and trash bags. If you insert small sliding drawers, you can keep everything neater, and it will be super easy to find things when you need them. Smaller half drawers can fit near the pipes so that you can store even more under your sink.

Corner Drawers

All those corners and angles in your kitchen don't have to be wasted space. Consider adding a series of corner drawers. Because they run into the corner, this style of drawer is deeper than the others in your kitchen. This type of drawer can accommodate longer items and even some of your more unusual kitchen tools that don't fit anywhere else. Even if you only have one corner in your kitchen, this is a perfect way to use that space.

In-Cabinet Spice Racks

Spice containers take over a cabinet quickly. Keep them in line and accessible by using the back of your cabinet doors. Find premade spice shelves to mount inside the cabinet or go with custom cabinets that tackle that for you. Remember to check the expiration dates on your spices before you put them in the new racks. Once they're organized, you have a better chance at using them up before they expire.

Sliding Recycling and Trash Storage

Those trash and recycling cans take up so much space if you leave them out. Tuck them away and keep them neat by using a sliding cabinet. The cans line up one behind the other, so you're using the depth of your counters to your advantage. Depending on the size of your cans, you should have enough for trash storage as well as plastic and glass recycling bins.
