Does your kitchen's storage feel clunky, unhelpful, or seriously lacking in its ability to perform the task of keeping your cooking space organised? Kitchen storage is one of the top issues that many people have within their home. Generally, in most domestic kitchens, storage is somewhat lacking. Due to this lack, the space can easily become disorganised, chaotic, and unproductive. In order for a kitchen to feel welcoming, clean and efficient, storage needs to be practical, versatile and keep the room coordinated.  

If you feel as though your kitchen needs a spruce up, as well as a thorough audit, check out our 10 ridiculously easy ways to improve your kitchen's storage below! We have collected our favourite storage options and listed them with some helpful tips and tricks. Read on to learn more!

1. Hanging rails

One of the simpler storage solutions (which are often great for renters) is the hanging rail and rack system. These are affixed to the wall, and provide a place for dishes, pots, pans, as well as other sink essentials. 

2. Drawer organisers

Drawer organisers are one of the best ways to improve your storage. Sure, they don't actually add any additional space, but they will condense and organise what you do have. This works quite surprisingly, as you will notice you have more areas to keep things, as everything is in its right place.

3. Smart joinery

Joinery can easily age and become more difficult than it should be. These days there are a range of different options such as this neat pull-out cupboard with wire shelving. Here everything is visible and within quick reach. 

4. Sort that trash

Garbage can actually save you space and improve your storage if you implement the right solutions. As well as being environmentally friendly, sorting your trash into types, like the example above, is a great way to keep your cooking space clean and stylish. 

5. Keep it minimal

We spoke earlier about drawer organisers, and this example is a perfect demonstration of that. Here minimalism is the key to neat and improved kitchen storage. Perform an audit of your accessories, tools and equipment, and get rid of unnecessary items.
