9 Popular Kitchen Storage Ideas

Kitchens are considered one the most important parts of a home and are often deemed as a selling point for any home. With so many items to store, it can also be the most difficult to organize. These popular kitchen storage solutions can help you keep your kitchen organized all year round:

1. Custom Pantry:

Having a well-organized pantry where all stored items can be seen at a glance is important for homeowners. This makes things much easier when it comes time for grocery shopping. Having a custom pantry with different compartments for food, appliances, Tupper Ware, etc. can help save time and make organization 100 times better.

2. Corner Drawers:

Cabinet corners can be awkward and difficult to design since corner drawers can bump into each other. These corner drawers give the illusion of two separate rows of drawers without sacrificing storage space.

3. Utensil Drawers:

Oak Hills

Instead of throwing all large utensils in a drawer, this solution has separate compartments for different utensils, making them much easier to find while cooking.

4. Drawer Under Sink:

The cabinet space under the kitchen sink can quickly become messy. It is typically a preferred spot to store cleaning supplies, sponges, extra plastic bags, etc. Adding a pull-out drawer can help keep this area clean and organized.

5. Built-in Pet Bowls:

Incorporating pet bowls into your kitchen design for your furry family members is always a great idea. These built-in pet bowls create a designated space for your pets to enjoy their food.

6. Pull Out Trash Bins:
