You’ve been dreaming of a more functional kitchen for a long time and now that you’re ready to renovate it, it’s time to make sure it’s tidy, operational and practical. In order to do so, several elements must be taken into consideration such as the configuration of the kitchen cabinets, the addition of storage space, the addition of accessories that optimize storage, etc.
Cabinets up to the ceiling
For their new kitchen, some may choose to have the cabinets extended up to the ceiling. This is a great option to reduce chores because you won’t have to clean the top of your cabinets! You can choose not to install any doors, install fixed ones or just regular ones. By adding new cabinets up to the ceiling, you benefit from additional storage space. However, since they are located higher up, you will need a stool to access them. We recommend that you store your occasional household items there, such as fondue or raclette sets.
Corner cabinet system
All kitchens have corner cabinets that sometimes make it difficult to access their contents. There are several storage systems that can be installed such as swivel trays or the “magic corner”. Very practical!Source : richelieu.com
Sliding pantry system
With sliding drawers in your cabinets, there’s no need to stretch to get the canned goods or any other ingredients for your recipes. Very practical!
For large drawers in your new kitchen, you will definitely need a utensil divider to keep the contents of your drawers from being a total mess. A must-have accessory! For a more modern look, go with the stainless steel utensil divider. Otherwise, for a more classic look, go with the plastic or wooden one.
To group your seasonings into one drawer, get a spice rack. This way, your spices will be easily accessible when you’re cooking.Source : richelieu.com
Garbage and recycling

Storage for large kitchenware
To maximize your kitchen counter space, how about storing large kitchen utensils in a cabinet pull-out system. Great, isn’t it?Source : richelieu.com
Are you tired of seeing cell phones charging all over the kitchen counter? Include a charging drawer in your new kitchen! No more cluttering up the counter!Source : richelieu.com
Electronic opening system
This electronic opening mechanism allows you to open your cabinet door easily by sliding your foot under the cabinet. A sensor will detect your foot movement and activate the opening. It is used with garbage cans or recycling containers. Very practical when you have your hands full!Source : richelieu.com
Again, in an effort to free up counter space (so you can be comfortable while cooking), many take the opportunity to conceal the microwave. Instead of placing it on the countertop, you can hide it behind a cabinet door or in an open cabinet.
As you’ve seen, there are many storage options available for your new kitchen. You have to admit that there is no shortage of ways to improve storage in your kitchen!
