If you are planning to redesign your kitchen cabinets, and storage is one of your primary concerns, here are some ideas that will help make the most efficient use of the space you have available in your kitchen:
1. Extended cabinets
The first way to ensure you use all the available space in your kitchen is to run your cabinets to the ceiling. Not only will this give you ample storage space, but it will also eliminate dust collection and make cleaning your kitchen a less tedious task. You may even dedicate an entire wall on which your cabinets can run from floor to ceiling.
2. Drawers that extend fully
If you are going to be storing lots of items in your kitchen drawers, it would help to have easy access to all those things. Opting for a drawer runner that fully extends can help with ease of access. You can also add drawer organizers as you will find that the less cluttered your drawers are, the more items you will be able to fit inside.
3. Pantry pull-outs
Adding pull-out shelves to your kitchen cabinets will significantly increase your storage options. These pull-out shelves may be used to store anything from spices to cleaning products. Unlike regular cabinet shelves where items may get lost in the back, pantry pull-outs make everything accessible.
4. Over-the-fridge organizers
If you can never figure out the right place to store your cookie sheets or cutting boards, consider adding over-the-fridge organizers to your kitchen cabinet design plan. You can even add pull-outs there as well to allow for better reach.
5. Floating shelves
If you want more cabinet space while keeping your kitchen feeling light and open, you should incorporate open shelving in your cabinet design. Floating shelves are aesthetically pleasing and are a great place to display your colourful storage jars or daily essentials, such as coffee mugs.
6. Under-cabinet storage
Even the space between the bottom of your cabinets and your countertops can be used for storage. You may utilize hanging units to store mugs, utensils, and small pots and pans.
7. Inside cabinet door storage
There are several options for inside cabinet door storage. You can utilize the space on the inside of your cabinet doors for a built-in knife rack, attached storage bins, a cutting board rack or measuring cup hangers.

At Kitchen Art Design, we design custom kitchen cabinets inspired by the families that will use them. Every custom kitchen cabinet begins with your vision in mind. However, we understand that redesigning your kitchen cabinets can seem overwhelming and you may be tempted to add all the features you can think of, but before you make a design choice it is essential to consider whether it is functional, or if it only takes away space you could use for something else. That is why every project starts with a consultation with our design team. With decades of experience, our designers will evaluate the space and tell you what designs will work best in your new kitchen. Once you have agreed on a design plan, we will then make custom kitchen cabinets made to fit the specific dimensions of your home.
