Here are some unique and simple, cost effective ways to create a bit more storage in your kitchen:
This type of rack pulls down from the upper cabinet, a location that keeps knives where they are handy for a cook but beyond the reach of young children.
If you've got a deep enough drawer, piggybacking two drawers in the space of one allows you to keep different sets of silverware in one section and meal-preparation tools in the other. In the double drawer shown here, the top section slides on runners mounted inside the bottom drawer.
If you have drawers that are custom sizes, look for adjustable silverware organizers. The type shown here has parts that slide together. You also can find drawer dividers made of plastic and cut them to size with scissors. We have also made custom silverware organizers to suit our client's needs.
The space under the kitchen sink is a challenge. So many plumbing parts are in the way that it often becomes a dark cave. Look to tilting drawers, door racks, stacking shelves, and plastic buckets filled with cleaning supplies to bring order to your cabinet.
Sturdy wooden pegs, secured into holes in the base piece, keep dishes from knocking against each other every time you open or close the drawer.
Trends in Kitchen Renovations
White kitchens are extremely popular and when done right can be the shining jewel in a home. White is appealing because the bright whiteness gives off a “clean” feel, which is especially good in a space that can easily get dirty and cluttered. The same principle holds true with bathrooms.
White can really pop when offset against a dark counter and appliances. Interest can be added to your white kitchen with dark floors or a vibrant paint colour. With white being such a versatile colour, you can easily change the appearance of a white kitchen with a fresh coat of paint or a new backsplash.
Traditionally kitchen cabinets have been either white or stained. Stained cabinets have been every shade from honey oak to espresso. 2014 brings with it a new trend which is taking the decorating community by storm: Grey. Grey is a beautifully neutral colour which comes with so many options. You can even paint the cabinets or stain them a solid stain colour or even a washed grey look. There are many colours you can accessorize with such as a darker or lighter shade of grey than what's already on the cabinets, white, black, red, a celedon green, or even a cobalt blue or yellow. Next time you're in a paint store, check out all the shades of grey paint and stain that are available. It might open you up to new possibilities the next time you decorate.
