Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes. However, there is one fact most families agree on. The kitchen is the heart of the home.
This epicenter of the house is not just for meal creation. It’s also where you work remotely, assist your children with schoolwork, gather with friends and much more.
Since the kitchen is the most important and most utilized part of the house, it should be an organized, clutter-free space. As a result, we are discussing the topic of Kitchen Storage.
WHERE TO BUY QUALITY CABINET STORAGE SOLUTIONS
Lighthouse Contracting Group has designed and renovated kitchens all over the Lakes Region. For this reason, there are two high quality cabinet storage and organization manufacturers we commonly work with. In fact, we even utilize these products in our own homes!
KITCHEN CABINET MANUFACTURERS
1. HARDWARE RESOURCES
Hardware Resources designs, engineers, and manufactures products for the kitchen cabinet, bath and closet industries. Consequently, they only sell their own products and deliver directly to the customer.
Rev-A-Shelf began as a metal and polymer Lazy Susan component manufacturer. Since then, it has grown into a leading innovator of quality, functional residential cabinet storage and organizational products. Namely kitchen drawer organizers, base cabinet and pantry pull-outs, functional waste containers and LED lighting systems.
ADD THESE KITCHEN STORAGE IDEAS TO YOUR WISHLIST
1. BLIND CORNER CABINET STORAGE
What is a blind corner cabinet?
A storage area located between two adjoining rows of base cabinets. For instance, if you look inside your cabinet and your view of the contents are obstructed, you have a corner cabinet.
Hidden cabinets are challenging and may feel like unused, wasted space. Fortunately, a solution exists. Try the The ‘Cloud’ by Rev-A-Shelf.
This cabinet accessory is designed for 15”, 18” and 21” blind corner openings. Thereby, creating a fabulous spot to store large pots and pans or appliances.
According to Rev-A-Shelf, these cloud-shaped shelves feature natural maple or gray solid bottoms and round or flat wire accents.
2. PULLOUT WASTE CONTAINER
You know that trash can taking up precious real estate on your kitchen floor? Get rid of it!
Install a Pullout Waste Container from Hardware Resources. Not only are they preassembled but they also come in multiple sizes.
Have a recycling bin too? Request a double system installation!
Unsure of the best location to install your pull out trash can? We suggest the cabinet right next to the kitchen sink.
To clarify, consider your nightly sequence of events while preparing dinner or cleaning up after a meal. The kitchen design should create a natural flow without interference. For instance, pull out the trash can, rinse the dish and place in the dishwasher.
3. FOOD STORAGE CONTAINER ORGANIZER
Who has a drawer or cabinet in their kitchen with plastic containers and lids thrown inside? As a result, it is the drawer of chaos and stress we try to avoid.
Rev-A-Shelf has an amazing solution: the Food Storage Container Organizer. Jeremy Doucet, the owner of Lighthouse Contracting Group, has this cabinet accessory in his kitchen. He raves about it!
The container organizer is designed for 18” and 24” base cabinets. It has adjustable clip-on lid dividers.
Therefore, you can customize the space to your specific container sizes! In addition, this kitchen organizer can also be used for pots and pan lids.
4. LOWER CABINET PULLOUT WITH KNIFE BLOCK & UTENSIL BIN
While you might enjoy showing off that high-end Wusthof knife set and block, it takes up valuable countertop space. Not to mention, common clutter is a distraction from a clean, bright kitchen design.
Average Kitchen Clutter
For the purpose of cleaning up the clutter, store your k-cups, paper towel dispenser, mixers and utensils inside your cabinets. Namely, this Contemporary Flat Wire Base Cabinet with Knife Block and Utensil Bin by Rev-A-Shelf.
Cabinet Storage Features
A lower cabinet organizer provides easy access to your knives, cooking utensils and miscellaneous ingredients. Thus providing clear countertops and efficient access while cooking!
Child Safety Locks
If safety is a concern, consider child safety locks. Might we suggest Rev-A-Lock as the security device for you. This magnetic lock keeps cabinets closed unless you have the magnetic key to disengage it.
5. MIXER/APPLIANCE LIFT
This kitchen storage feature is on the wish list of our Brand Ambassador, Jennifer. Her favorite hobby is baking. Unfortunately, her KitchenAid Stand Mixer takes up too much space in her small kitchen.
Countertop Mixer Storage
For this reason, the Soft-Close Mixer Lift by Hardware Resources is on her wish list. In fact, this lift can be attached to any custom shelf in your lower cabinets. It has an adjustable spring tension and holds appliances up to 45 pounds.
