For a lot of us, the kitchen is a place for both work and play. Not only is it a place to prepare food and eat, but a lot of us also get a lot of work done in the kitchen such as sorting mail, paying bills etc.

The kitchen is the place where we store our food, cooking utensils, supplies and others. Sometimes, we also keep our keys, mail and bills here. The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the entire household. This is why we must be able to furnish and choose the right kitchen storage according to our needs.                                                                                                                                                    Wooden Pantry System

When it comes to kitchen organization, it should be a blend of aesthetics, convenience and functionality. Ideally, it should be a good mix of open and closed storage options, depending on what they are there for. Drawers are for hiding those loose utensils and cutlery and what have you, while shelves can hold bigger items in your kitchen. You can enhance your bigger shelf spaces with other storage solutions such as a lazy susan, or a corner shelf or even a full set of pantry shelves. These will allow you to organize a mix of various supplies and utensils in these bigger shelves.

If you have a lot of space in your kitchen and prefer to have a decorative aspect in it to add more life, why not use a glass cabinet as your main kitchen storage and simply highlight it. You can put, or rather display here your fancy dishes, serveware and other artisanal pieces worth showing off. Just remember to keep the look clean, uncluttered and organized by putting the pieces that blend and look good together.

For those with a small compact kitchen, a great idea for added kitchen storage is pull put organizers. These basically double or triple your existing cabinet by adding layers where you can further organize supplies in. You can also maximize even more space by applying the use of multi-tiered trays placed inside drawers. Here, you can properly store your cutlery and other utensils. If your kitchen is compact, why not store pots and pans by hanging them on the ceiling or putting them on rolling serving carts which aside from becoming additional kitchen storage can magically turn into a prep table as needed or simply kept at the side of the room when not in use.

In essence, your kitchen space does not simply function as just storage, though that is their immediate purpose.

And remember that the kitchen, is the busiest part in the house. People tend to gather there whether family or friends, and the last thing we want is for the kitchen to be dirty and cluttered. When you choose your kitchen storage it is important to consider both the aesthetics and its ability to provide all your storage needs.
