It’s easy to pack your kitchen with too much food and too much cookware, so keeping it all organized can be a bit of a challenge. However, the more organized you are, the more efficient your work space, which is why it is best to update your kitchen cabinet storage space when things get out of hand. Before going out and buying the store, however, review your needs so that you find cabinet storage features that offer the most convenience to you. For instance, do you have more to gain from upper cabinet storage accessories or lower? Check out the quick guide below to find out!
Upper Cabinet Storage Features
Pull-down spice racks can fit in or under upper cabinets, creating space and removing clutter.

Lower Cabinet Storage Features
Roll-out baskets add an attractive touch while creating a more efficient work space.
Pull-out waste centers are great for keeping trash hidden and keeps pets and children out of the garbage.
Cutting boards with knife storage are convenient for creating more task space.
Oversized Lazy Susan units allow you to skim over items easier without creating chaos.

It may help to get everything out of the cabinets first and sort them into groups. While doing this, see if there are any items you can afford to get rid of. Limit groups to three basic areas: preparation area, cook-and-serve area, and sink area. Also, try to keep the three areas close so you can work more efficiently. Overall, avoid stacking to make everything accessible. For canned goods and small appliances, use step shelving to help organize. Wire baskets are also great for deep cabinets and keeping items within reach.
