Your kitchen holds a lot of different items, from pots and pans to dry goods, appliances, and utensils. It can be overwhelming to figure out where to store everything and keep your kitchen tidy and organized. Here are 4 kitchen storage ideas that are easy to implement and offer creative solutions for keeping everything neat.

A Lazy Susan is a Kitchen Storage Solution

A Lazy Susan is a rotating disk that often has multiple tiers. It is ideal for storing small containers like spices and condiments. These tools save space by grouping items together in a small amount of space. You simply spin the disk to access anything stored on it, making everything easy to access. A Lazy Susan can be placed inside a cabinet, on a shelf, or right on the countertop.

Overhead Pot Rack

Pots and pans are awkward to store in drawers and on shelves because they are all different shapes and sizes. Hanging them from the handles is the most convenient way to keep pots and pans in the kitchen.

Install an overhead pot rack to the ceiling with hooks to hang your pots and pans. You can also hang things like cutting boards and large spatulas and ladles. Anchor the rack to ceiling joists so it will be secured with no risk of falling out.

Add an Island for Kitchen Storage

An island offers the dual benefits of more storage and more counter space. Design your island by choosing cabinets and shelves for the base and a countertop that works with the rest of your kitchen. You can also add stools to make the island an additional space for eating and gathering.

Hooks for Cleaning Equipment

Hooks on the wall or the side of a pantry are perfect for storing a broom, a mop, and a dustpan for easy access. Another option is installing a mop and broom rack with fixtures that grip the top of the handles so you can hang the tools vertically. It’s easy to clean up every day when your cleaning equipment is nearby and within easy reach.

You’ll enjoy using your kitchen more when it is well-organized with great storage solutions. Use the 4 ideas above to make your kitchen a more functional space.
