If we brought the countertops into discussion, what would be the first thought that would come into your mind? What do people store there? Most of the people will say canisters. Countertops can represent an efficient way to store large items, like bags of sugar and flour. They are especially useful if you do not have a large space available in your kitchen. The canisters can come in a large variety of materials and sizes in order to match just about every kitchen design out there, including metal, plastic and glass. If you are into this visual aspect, we recommend that you store items like the colorful pasta in transparent canisters.
That is the plight of so many of us who spend time in the kitchen. I would not call myself a chef per se but with a large family I end up doing a lot of cooking. I started out using odd equipment gifted to me from family members and gradually moved up to higher quality pieces over the years. I actually have nice copper-bottom pans; I just can not find them with any ease. Recently I have gotten on a kick to install better kitchen storage and it is starting to make a difference. By doing a couple of cabinets at a time I can keep the costs down while making encouraging progress in the kitchen.
An additional way to free up space in your kitchen is to reorganize your kitchen cabinets. One method is to remove dry foods from their sometime bulky containers and store them in purpose bought storage canisters. Ingredients such as pasta, flour, sugar and coffee grounds can be removed from their packaging and placed in airtight containers. Not only will you be freeing up space, but your ingredients will last longer. If you really are struggling to find extra storage space in your kitchen, you should consider the benefits of adding extra storage. A quick search of the internet will show you a number of a companies that are able to provide contemporary kitchen solutions, such as carousels and shelves that pull out.
By doing something as simple as installing dish rail to the forward edge of the upper cabinet tops, you provide a defined, aesthetically pleasing storage area for the likes of that fancy dinnerware you have used once in the last year, the larger pieces of cookware that also have not seen action since the last holiday. Storing larger, seldom used pieces overhead clears more concealed storage space for some of the items that clutter your counter space. Remember that sandwich maker; there you go, out of sight. (Note, keep a balanced and visually appealing amount of items overhead, do not defeat your progress by simply shuffling the jumble from below overhead.)
Kitchen storage is no longer a silverware tray shoved into a drawer. It has evolved into pieces of artwork that you can hang on your kitchen wall. It is no longer off-white plastic, but is now available in every color in the rainbow, and in most metals too. If you think you need it, you can now find it designed to fit your kitchen size and decor. At one point, kitchens had silverware drawers, maybe a dish strainer, and possibly a canister to hold the big spoons. But today the possibilities are endless when it comes to kitchen storage. Some of the more common items are spice racks, shelf inserts, storage canisters, and my personal favorite, lid holders. These items have made kitchens more organized and 100% more functional.
Kitchen storage containers solve the problem of kitchen clutter. The kitchen is the place people gravitate to. This is where we cook, eat, have an afternoon cup of tea, play board games and do homework. Because of this, it is also the room with the most clutter. While a lot of items have a home outside of the kitchen, packaged foods belong here and that is where the real clutter begins. Packaged foods come in different shapes and sizes and, no matter how neatly you place them on a shelf, they eventually topple over. On top of that, once they are opened, you can never close them as securely as you wish to.
Some of the different canisters are square, bamboo, country apple, stainless steel and acrylic. These are just a few of the popular styles and shapes that you have to choose from of kitchen storage containers. Also take into consideration that if you have kids then it may be more practical to go for the stainless steel or acrylic canisters for long life and durability.
