One of the number one requests from homeowners is that they need more storage in the kitchen. If you are doing a Pompano Beach Kitchen Remodel project, this is easy to plan for in the planning stage. However, if you have an existing kitchen, you may need to be a bit more creative to get more use from your kitchen space, since you are not changing the existing cabinetry.
The planning process during a kitchen remodel is the perfect time to look at the existing space and see where it can be improved.

Taking Inventory of Your Kitchen
When you step back and take inventory of all the items in your kitchen this will help you the most with planning how to best utilize the space in the kitchen.
Creating a Floor plan for your Kitchen
The kitchen layout/floor plan will help you tremendously look at what your options are in relation to the storage space within the kitchen.
Clean Out and Give away Unnecessary Items in the Kitchen
One of the fastest ways of creating more space in a kitchen is to rid yourself of things that you do not need or use. These items are usually stored away just collecting dust in the kitchen. Take this time to purge the bulky items that are being not used at all or used once or twice a year
After you have analyzed your space and determined how much space you need for your kitchen, take a look at the kitchen cabinets and the pantry. Do you have the right cabinetry or pantry space for all of the things in your kitchen, such as food items, cooking utensils, dishes, pots, pans, cookie sheets, serving trays, etc.
Take the time needed to plan your kitchen storage needs that will suit your current lifestyle and for years to come.
