Organization Tools to Make the Most of Your Cabinet Space
Courtesy of Knape & Vogt
With properly planned cabinet space and the right accessories, your kitchen can increase its storage capacity even without increasing square footage.
The standard dimensions for cabinets are becoming less so. Maybe you can add 6 inches of storage to your base cabinets, making them 30 inches instead of the standard 24 inches deep. Or you could make your upper cabinets a foot taller and add 3 to 4 inches to their standard 12- to 13-inch depth.
Double up on drawers to give you more storage space. They’re being used now to store plates, pots and pans, and snacks—and replacing base cabinet shelving in many instances.
And check out the growing number of options that can help you take advantage of every last inch of available cabinet space.
