How to Maximize Space in Your Denver Kitchen Remodeling Project

Whether your kitchen is big or small, you can still maximize your space to get the most out of it! As you prepare for your Denver kitchen remodeling project, consider your current methods of organization and structure and how you would like to improve it. From there, no matter what your kitchen’s size, you can find ways to get the most out of your space and remodel! Here are some tips to help make the process seamless.
  1. Make Drawers and Cabinets Work for You: One of the best ways to maximize your kitchen is to get creative with your storage. You are not necessarily confined to your current situation. For cabinets, find vertical storage options that enable you to put more on a shelf. You can also find tiered options to make things easier to find and reach. Plus, this will help you have to take out items just to get to the back. Next, utilize your corners better. One of the most popular ways to do this is with a lazy Susan. There is an alternative to the lazy Susan though—corner drawers! Corner drawers give you even more space and depth to use in your kitchen storage.
  2. Dividers: Dividers are a great way to help separate items. One, this will help find items easier and two, it will keep them together. For instance, think about all of your sheet pans. Create a vertical divider option to help separate the various sizes. Another option for dividers are for your Tupperware bowls. Create dividers to separate the lids from the bowls to avoid losing them. In addition to dividers, make sure your shelving is at the appropriate heights. This will allow you to maximize what is used on each shelf. So whether your contractor moves shelves to different areas, or you invest in shelf stacking kits, be sure to get the most out of your shelves.
  3. Storage that Hides Commonly Used Items: Even though you use your trashcan, toaster, toaster oven, coffee pot and various other appliances often, you don’t have to keep them in the open. As you work with your contractor on your remodel, create built-in solutions for these commonly used items. For instance, create a drawer that fits your trashcan to easily slide in and out. You can also create extra space to keep garbage bags with it. Next, consider a sliding cabinet door to place countertop appliances in for easy access. This will allow you to use them on a daily basis without being in plain sight at all times. You can also create easy-access storage solutions for food too, such as a bread or coffee drawer or cabinet. Need more inspiration? Check out HGTV’s “20 Smart Kitchen Storage Ideas.”
