The kitchen is the room where most storage is needed and finding a place for every cooking item while avoiding a cluttered kitchen area can be a hard task. What you may not realise is that there is much usable space for storage on the unused walls in your kitchen. Here are some ways to maximise the use of the walls in your kitchen and create a solution to your limited kitchen storage.
Floating Kitchen Shelves
Floating shelves in the kitchen are versatile and create a sleek, streamlined storage space which attach to your kitchen wall with a visible bracket. Floating kitchen shelves will enhance the functionality of your cooking space as well as improve the visual appeal. The trick to open kitchen shelving is to carefully choose which items you wish to display and arrange them in a way that suits the space and adds visual interest. You can even display your cookbook collection in your kitchen wall shelving for quicker access to your recipes.
Carving a nook into your wall structure is functional as well as an interesting kitchen design feature. A few square nooks carved vertically down the side of your kitchen prep area are a great way to maximise the use of unavoidable open wall space. You can even fill a nook with floating shelves for extra space. Kitchen nooks work well as you can clearly store your cooking ingredients, spices and cook books while adding architectural interest and a hint of character.
When you have run out of space in your kitchen cabinets, why not display your pots and pans or cooking items out in the open on your kitchen walls. Plain-sight storage is handy as it keeps things close at hand when you’re in a rush to prepare. The key to keeping your kitchen from looking cluttered and chaotic is to group matching items together and only display essential items, rather than putting everything on show. Use simple wall hooks to artfully hang your items or for larger kitchens use a hanging pot rack.
