Pull-Out, Wall, or Door Spice Rack
Don’t waste precious space on small spice bottles when much bigger items need to be stored on food pantry shelves. It’s essential for cooks to know what spices they have on hand when planning meals and making shopping lists, so a spice rack that is easy to reach and see will make your kitchen much more functional. There are many choices available, including pull-out, wall-hung, or cabinet-door spice racks. Check out a few options, and then decide which one is perfect for your kitchen storage needs.

Pull-Out Trash Can Cabinet
A pull-out trash can cabinet is a handy addition to any kitchen. A pull-out cabinet keeps the trash can and its accompanying odors hidden away from public view – and from curious toddlers and hungry pets, too. Pull-out trash can cabinets can be built to house two trash receptacles to make recycling a breeze. There is also an option to install a cutting board that pulls out over the trash can to make chopping and prep work clean-up easy. The best location for one of these cabinets is right next to the sink.
Clear Vacuum-Sealed Containers
Clear vacuum-sealed containers are helpful and money-saving for storing staples like flour, sugar, beans, oatmeal, and other dry goods. Transferring these items to a vacuum-sealed container will help you keep an eye on what needs replenishing and keep them fresh for much longer than if you leave them in their original packaging. Be sure to label them clearly, so you don’t confuse the quick oats with the old-fashioned kind.
Sometimes deep drawers can be wasted space since most things usually stored in drawers are not bulky. A stacked drawer will double the storage capacity of deep drawers.
One of the most valuable additions to a kitchen is peg drawers. While the majority of people still use wall cabinets for storing their dishes, a peg drawer designed for dish storage is much more convenient and makes it easier to reach in and grab plates or put them away after washing. In addition, for anyone with limited mobility, this storage solution is a huge help.
Extra Deep Drawers
If you install extra-deep drawers for your heavy pots and pans and bakeware, you will wonder why you waited so long to make your life in the kitchen so much easier. Instead of crouching down and searching a deep cabinet for the pot or casserole dish you need, you can open a drawer and quickly and easily find what you need.
Don’t waste an inch of cabinet space. Shelf risers allow for more storage without needing to stack items too high. For example, you can store bowls and cups on the base of shelves and plates and saucers on the risers.
Hook hangers can be used inside cabinets, on cabinet doors, on a peg rack, on a rail hung above a window or under a shelf, or in a broom closet. You can use hook hangers just about anywhere in your kitchen where there’s open space. You can use small hook hangers to store coffee cups or hang dish towels and large hook hangers to store utensils. Hook hangers are the MVPs of storage solutions because you can use them in so many different ways.
