Run a Shelf If you have a wall in your kitchen that does not have any cabinets on it then it is the perfect place for you to run a shelf. Running a shelf will allow you to put whatever you wish on that shelf and will free up a great deal of extra space in your kitchen. Most people stick to putting decorations on kitchen shelves, but the sky is the limit and really depends on your taste and storage space needs.
For anyone that might prefer splurging a bit of money on buying new kitchen storage jars, then you should be prepared for all of the options that stores have available. You will not just find the ordinary round kitchen canister jars, but nowadays the designers of kitchen storage containers have become more creative in designing storage containers that are square, oval, rectangular, hour glass shaped. Designers realize that people want more of something that will match wall paintings and other decorations that they might have in their homes. A better way to find out what designs and colors are available, is to search online at websites that have kitchen supplies, decorations, etc. You will most certainly find something that you like. You could either choose to buy kitchen canisters online, or you can get ideas by looking online, and then go to your favorite home decorating store to buy some canisters if you prefer to not have to wait for shipping.
If space is a problem, but on the other hand you have a lot of floor space in your kitchen, you should consider installing a kitchen island. A kitchen island is a free standing addition to your kitchen, which as its name suggests, sits in the middle of the floor. The great thing about kitchen islands is that not only do you get extra storage space but you will also get extra countertop space, or you can even add an extra sink or appliance.
When it comes to utensils that have not yet dried a sink organizer can sit on top of an extra sink where newly washed plates can wait to dry. Large glass jars containing food can sit on top or inside the fridge without much of a trouble. Plastic storage boxes that look like lunchboxes can contain left overs that can be stacked on top of each other inside the refrigerator until ready to reheat in the microwave oven.
It has been said many times that the kitchen is the heart of the home this is as true now as it has ever been in American history. Families gather for holiday togetherness in the kitchen, friends chat and laugh in kitchens everywhere, waiting for their hosts to prepare snack and treats. Due to their central position in all homes, having a clean, organized kitchen has become extremely important, making kitchen storage the perfect area to focus on when choosing a house warming gift for new home owners.
If you are a person who loves to cook, chances are yougot recipes written down somewhere. While that can be stored in your file cabinet back at your home office, it is very inconvenient to going back all the way to retrieve it and risk smudging food all over your other files. The solution is a Recipe and Coupon Organizer. This plastic box can sit anywhere in the kitchen, allowing you to simply reach for it whenever you need to look up on your recipe.
When choosing kitchen storage, specifically for the new home owner, there are two general types of ideas the kinds of storage that are appropriate and needed in just about any kitchen, and those more suited to the individual kitchen and personalities of the owner. If you know the owner well, and have seen the new home or pictures of the new home is kitchen, then consider a gift that specifically suits that kitchen. For example, you may have seen the kitchen, and noticed that it is small, and low on drawer and cupboard storage. Also, you know the home owner to be an avid cook, so you wonder to yourself where they will keep their spices. The perfect gift might be a magnetic spice rack, the type where a modern looking metal sheet is mounted on a wall, or inside a cabinet door, then neat, metal containers hold spices, magnetically stored away on the mounted metal sheet. Myriad such ideas for specific storage needs exist, and a walk through a home organizing store would reveal many ideas to suit any kitchen.
