Is there such a thing as too much kitchen storage space? The obvious answer is no and that no is multiplied by many numbers if you have a house that is small as it is. When you have used up every cabinet in the kitchen how can you create more storage space.
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.
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.
Storage rack units comes in two of the most popular materials used in making them including wood or steel, so what ever you choose, make sure they are solidly built. While other rack units can be mounted on the wall, others are attached in the cupboard or placed near the cooking stoves.
An additional way to free up space in your kitchen is to reorganize your kitchen cabinets. One method is to remove dry foods from their sometime bulky containers and store them in purpose bought storage canisters. Ingredients such as pasta, flour, sugar and coffee grounds can be removed from their packaging and placed in airtight containers. Not only will you be freeing up space, but your ingredients will last longer.
At one point, kitchens had silverware drawers, maybe a dish strainer, and possibly a canister to hold the big spoons. But today the possibilities are endless when it comes to kitchen storage. Some of the more common items are spice racks, shelf inserts, storage canisters, and my personal favorite, lid holders. These items have made kitchens more organized and 100% more functional.
So what is the moral here. It is a simple one, so get ready. Kitchen storage can be used by anyone, will fit any décor and makes life a lot more functional. So what are you waiting for.
