Finding a place for everything in your kitchen can be a difficult task. If your like me, you can never have enough storage space.

Adding kitchen storage shelves

Adding more kitchen storage shelves is a relatively simple project that anyone can do, and there are several ways to approach it. You can:

  1. put additional shelves in the pantry
  2. add shelves to the interior of upper cabinets
  3. add shelves to the interior of lower cabinets
  4. put up a hanging rack for pots and pans and use the newly acquired space

There are many ways to gain additional space, as well as “perceived” additional space. What do I mean by that?

How many times have you cleaned out your pantry shelves to discover food you’ve had for half a year or more? It had been sitting there in the back of your cupboard unseen all that time…

Without adding any additional shelves or cupboard you can condense the space required for your kitchen storage by adding roll-out shelves.

The Lazy Susan

The most under-utilized space in any kitchen is in the corners. Simply adding a lazy susan can solve a lot of kitchen storage issues. These spin on an axis and can be mounted or simply rest on the cabinet bottom. Lazy susans come in large and small sizes so you can use them in the lower and upper cabinets respectively.

Making the most of your kitchen storage

Ultimately, the most cost effective way to increase the storage in your kitchen is to add to or modify what you already have, and with the customization options available today you can get the look you want without breaking the bank to do it.

There are many ways to create space in your kitchen without breaking the budget. By adding kitchen storage shelves, you can avoid the cost of remodelling.

Before adding shelving to your kitchen, decide what you’ll use the extra storage space for. Will it be housing symmetrical items like tinned food, or do you need a place for bulky shapes like pots and pans?

Food Storage

Rolling or sliding shelves are a popular addition to cabinets. Slanted sides are useful – a short front, usually 2.5″, provides an easy view and a higher back prevents taller items from falling behind. Make these from plywood or, for a more rustic look, use wicker baskets on roller tracks.

Pots and Pans

Install recessed storage shelves and mount hooks to the interior of the cabinet door, creating a convenient place to hang your regularly used pots and pans.

Vertical Storage

Stacking serving platters vertically makes them easy to sort and identify. Install freestanding, pine dividers every 2-3″.

Dishes and Glassware

Adding open kitchen storage shelves around existing kitchen cabinets can be a great way to display dish sets.

If you plan to build your own kitchen storage shelves, you may require cabinet installation tools.
