Your options for storage solutions include:

Shelves

  • Look to different interior shelving options for easy-access in hard-to reach places:

    • Vertical pullout units

    • Rollout shelves

    • Foldout banks of shelves

    • Swingout shelves
       

  • Gain storage space with narrow, 4-inch-to-10-inch wide slide-in shelves that look like posts when they’re pushed in. They can give you extra room without taking up whole sections of the cabinets, holding spices, soups, and more.
     

  • Put away plates with ease with open shelving—a great way to add color and personality to your kitchen. Also, since upper cabinet open shelving tends to be more recessed than low-hanging boxes, you’ll end up with a more open workspace.
     

  • Turn an awkward corner into a valuable storage spot with a lazy Susan. Many shelving manufacturers offer accessories to make access even easier, like pie-shaped bins and slideouts.

Baskets

  • Add visual depth and interest with pullout wicker baskets and under-the-sink pullout wire baskets—ideal ways to store linens, cleaners, or vegetables, depending on their location.

Bins

  • Make cleanup a breeze with pullout trash and recycling bins.

  • Add style and practicality with grain storage bins.

Drawers

  • Consider using drawers instead of shelving for your base cabinets.

  • Don’t only equate drawer storage with cabinetry. Many appliances, including refrigerators, wine chillers, and dishwashers, now come as drawer units. Store milk and juice next to your breakfast nook or place frequently used items in a refrigerator drawer beneath your workspace.

  • Keep what you use where you use it. A large drawer under a cooktop is an ideal place for pots and pans.

  • Use dividers for simplified retrieval:
     

    • Cutlery compartments

    • Spice drawers

    • Utensil dividers
