1. Install Custom Cabinetry

If you just bought a new home or are considering a kitchen remodel, it’s easier for a custom cabinet manufacturer to help optimize your space. In older houses with limited space, good utilization of your cabinet area is a challenge. And if you have an oddly shaped space for kitchen cabinets, it can be difficult and confusing to try to optimize the space on your own.

A custom cabinet company can create pieces to the exact dimensions you need and even can make them match your existing décor or the vision you had for your remodeled look. At Red Rose Cabinetry, we’ll help maximize your kitchen space and solve your storage problems with our custom cabinets.

2. Create Divided Drawers

An open drawer with dividers for storing utensils is a great way to optimize your kitchenAnother way a kitchen cabinet manufacturer can optimize your kitchen storage issues is with divided drawers. Drawers with dividers—which could be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal—make storage a breeze. You can organize silverware, chef knives, spatulas, serving spoons, and other little kitchen gadgets.

You may also consider a sink tip-out drawer. This drawer is perfect for storing bottle brushes, pot scrapers, and sponges. Plus, it will make your kitchen look tidier since you won’t have those items laying around your sink.

And if your kitchen is really low on space, installing toe-kick drawers at the bottom of your cabinets can provide the extra space you need for thinner items, like cutting boards.

3. Optimize Your Kitchen Features

If your kitchen features a built-in home bar or butler’s pantry, there are ways to optimize this space too. Ask your cabinet designer to install glass-front doors so that you can feature a few special glasses or prized items. The rest of your cups and glassware can go behind solid doors, so everything looks organized.

White cabinets with glass fronts are the perfect way to highlight a few special items

Another kitchen feature you can have your cabinet manufacturer design for you is a chic coffee bar. Store your coffee maker, espresso maker, coffee beans or grounds, and coffee mugs right in one central location. You’ll get to be your own barista! But having all of your coffee or tea-making items in one place can help enhance your kitchen.

4. Kitchen Storage Solutions

The beauty of working with a custom cabinet manufacturer to optimize your space is that you can create customized storage solutions. For example, consider creating a section of your cabinets with open slots so you can store baking sheets, cupcake tins, and cake pans on their sides. This storage method makes it easier to pull out the pan you want without knocking over the stack of pans on top of it.

Another storage solution is to get your pots and pans out of the cabinets and hang them up instead. For example, most saucepans have a handle that makes them easy to hang from hooks or a custom-made hanging pot rack. And don’t forget about the space above your cabinets too. Store infrequently used kitchen appliances and cookbooks up there for when you need them.

5. Organize Cabinet Contents

To properly enhance your kitchen storage space, you also need to consider organizers inside your cabinets. For example, installing a turntable or lazy-susan inside a cabinet near your stove allows you to store spices, oils, bottles of vinegar, and other sauces to find them easily when you need them. A quality cabinet maker will listen to your design ideas and help bring those to life.

As you begin to place your contents back inside the cabinets after our expert installers finish their job, don’t forget to label everything to know what each item is. After all, all of those white baking powders can look so similar! Additionally, keep like items together:

  • Baking supplies in a cabinet near your stand mixer
  • Cutting boards and knives by a large counter for food prep
  • Spices, pots, and cooking utensils close to the stove for cooking
  • Sponges, dish soap, kitchen towels, and drying racks belong by the sink

With high-quality cabinets and excellent organizing skills, your kitchen will be tidy, organized, and beautiful.
