One of my greatest problem in my kitchen is lack of storage. I have lots of kitchen stuff which are not properly stored and organized. I just felt that way since every time we're having a party in the house, I get lost of where certain items were kept like party spoons and forks, table napkins, serving spoons, punch bowls, serving trays, etc.
Also, my other problem is providing additional storage for my kitchen counter top. My kitchen is not really that big. It's just of a normal size. It was made that way since, we also have a dirty kitchen anyway, where most of the cooking in the house takes place. Only light breakfasts and simple meals are being prepared in my kitchen inside the house and the rest of the more complicated ones are being done at the dirty kitchen. I have storage areas in both places but I still feel unsatisfied with how my kitchen stuff are stored.
This has been a challenge for me especially so that I am that type of person who is much into home decorations and home organization. For me, no matter how small a space is, there would always be a room for everything if you only know how to reinvent and rearrange. I'm actually thinking of adding shelves and drawers in our existing kitchen cabinet and I hope that I could make it possible within the year.
Photo above shows one way of adding shelves and storage areas in your already built up kitchen counter top. See that spice rack again? I really love this idea. I might use this but I may also be introducing some minor changes as I need to consider the size of my kitchen.
What do you think?
