There’s a book that’s popular right now entitled The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Maybe you’ve read it?
If not, the gist is that cleansing your home of unnecessary clutter creates everyday joy and peace. If you’ve ever knuckled down and done some serious organizing, you’ve probably experienced that awesome sense of calm. It’s as simple as this: Pretty much everyone enjoys order and organization.
The kitchen can be an especially difficult place to create order, however, since everything from food to cookware to cleaning products lives there. But that’s where some ingenious storage techniques can come into play.
In this blog, the Very Cool Guys share some custom cabinets that maximize storage. These smart storage units mean your kitchen will contain less clutter—and that means a better everyday experience.
1.) Transform Your Pantry Into a Storage Superstar
This large kitchen pantry is unconventional but completely amazing when it comes to storage. Double-door custom cabinets open up to shelving galore, where you can stow away all of your canned and bottled goods, spices, or whatever needs keeping.
Plus, the single shelf above could store decorative items or more storage. Could you see this custom cabinet in your home?
2.) Use Corner Custom Cabinetry to Maximize Storage
Corners can be tricky spots, but you can maximize the storage possibilities with a custom cabinet like this.
Rather than a conventional Lazy Susan, V-shaped cabinet doors pull open into three separate drawers. This setup not only creates more space, but it’s objectively cool to look at. Make your storage unique with a piece like this!
3.) Keep Moisture At Bay with This Cabinet for Under the Sink
Pipe leaks can be a major disruption, to put it mildly. It’s especially aggravating if your cabinet under the sink tends to get moldy thanks to slow but steady leakage from pipes above.
While it’s best to get leaky pipes repaired, you can protect your cleaning products and other items from mold by installing a custom cabinet like this one. The drawer means objects aren’t sitting directly on the floor, where mold and moisture tend to collect. Plus, the setup creates easier accessibility.
4.) Make the Most of Tall, Narrow Spaces
Lastly, there’s nothing worse than that tall, narrow space near the wall! Without shelving, it can be hard to figure out what to even do with this space.
That’s where a custom cabinet like this really shines. Because you can pull out all of the shelves as one drawer, you’ll have total access to all of the items stored within. No more digging into a cramped, dark space in search of your bullion cubes.
