Ways to Expand Your Denver Kitchen Cabinets and Storage Space

August 16, 2017

Are you lacking on quality storage space in your kitchen? Do you find yourself struggling to find room for utensils? Are things constantly being knocked over? Now is the time to expand your kitchen. From planning a remodel and ideas for tall cabinets and premier organization to tips for creating an open layout, learn how you can make the best of your Denver kitchen cabinets.

Planning a Remodel

The first major step in any remodel is the most obvious—to plan. However, it is not as easy as you think. While there might be an overarching goal, what are the puzzle pieces that get you there? What are some of the top pain points and workarounds that you already have existing in your kitchen? It is important to pinpoint all the key areas that you need to fix with this remodel. If in addition to updating cabinets and storage, you will be adding in other appliances or furniture, make sure you have all of the dimensions that these items can go into. If you are doing a complete re-do, you still want to get measurements so all the new items fit into place. Next, you will want to brainstorm design. For instance, do you prefer modern or contemporary? Rustic or traditional? For more ideas and tips for getting started, read HGTV’s “How to Begin a Kitchen Remodel.”

Tall Cabinets and Smart Organization

One of the most important aspects to get right in your kitchen remodel are the cabinets. Functional and usable space is typically one of the go-to reasons homeowners take on a project in the first place. From your planning process, you will have all of your notes on what areas need improvement for storage. From there, talk to your local cabinetry specialist to find a solution that meets that need. You need to be able to get to your dishes, cups and utensils easily but also store many other items. This is where smart organization comes into play. Maximize space not only through shelving, but also with dividers and risers to help you split up certain pieces. Consider pull out drawers too for those hard-to-reach or small items.

Tips for Creating an Open Layout

The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in a home. Today, not only are open kitchens popular, they are more functional as well. They are especially beneficial for larger families or entertainers, but are great for a one or two-person home. If looking to make the space look larger, you can choose lighter colors that do not absorb light the way darker colors do. Work with your cabinet specialist on colors to ensure the color you choose for your cabinets complements the paint color or designs on the walls. You can also have an electrician run wiring through islands or other areas so you have more areas you can use appliances, others living in the home can charge devices, etc.
