Maximize Storage Capacity In Your Kitchen With Strategic Additions

Posted on

Running out of storage space in your kitchen can limit your family in several ways. For instance, you may not be able to pick up as many tools, small appliances, ingredients, or non-perishables as you would like. All these things might also limit your cooking capabilities and options, which you may feel determined to resolve through kitchen remodeling services.

Hiring professionals to work on strategic additions that boost storage will alleviate your storage problems by maximizing storage capacity.

Walk-In Pantry

While you can add a standard pantry and get some storage, you will appreciate how much storage you can get with a walk-in one. A walk-in design gives you storage in every direction, from the floor to the ceiling. You work alongside remodelers to create a custom design that combines cabinets, drawers, shelves, and countertop space.

The walk-in feature makes it possible to step into the pantry and look in every direction to see what you have stored. This level of accessibility allows you to find what you need quickly and easily, making the entire cooking and food preparation process more enjoyable.

Custom Island

When you have space in the middle of the kitchen, you can build an island to maximize storage capacity. An island is an ideal addition to this space because it is trickier to use in other ways.

You can get ample storage space from the island, especially when you make it the top priority during the design phase. For instance, while some homeowners may skip storage on the side where your family sits, you can add storage strategically to still provide comfortable seating.

An island is excellent for adding open shelving where you see items on display. This allows you to store pots and pans without concealing them behind drawers or cabinets. You may appreciate grabbing large cooking tools without pulling them through cabinet doors.


While you may already have a decently large cabinetry setup, you can take available wall space and add more cabinets. Your kitchen might have empty space between that ceiling and existing cabinetry, allowing remodelers to build small cabinets to fill the space.

Another strategy is to build new cabinets next to the end of existing cabinet setups. You can even go with floor-to-ceiling cabinets to maximize how much storage you can create.

When you implement these strategic additions with help from remodelers, you can successfully maximize your kitchen's storage capacity. Reach out to kitchen remodeling services to learn more.
