The New Year is here, the holidays are over, and it is time for a fresh start — not just for yourself, but for your home as well! I like to use this time of year to really clean out my home, de-clutter and make it function at its best. We are all running crazy and are too busy, so we need things in our home to be as efficient as possible. The kitchen is a perfect place to jump start your organizing. Today I am adding functionality and organization to the pantry. Even if you do not have a full pantry, these tips will still help you make the most of whatever kitchen storage space you have and bring organization to a whole new level. If you are like me, this is what your pantry looks like.
The island is probably the most common accent piece for a kitchen but it‘s usually something that only large kitchens can accommodate. Islands go well with open floor plans so if you have the room then should definitely take advantage of it. However, the island is not the only option. A kitchen peninsula is an interesting and practical alternative for smaller spaces or for certain types of layouts. A kitchen peninsula can sometimes prove to be a better option than an island. It provides circulation on three sides while one side is usually attached to a wall and this can offer some nice advantages. A peninsula can be an extension for your kitchen cabinetry or even for a kitchen island. It can be lower than the counter and it can be used as a comfortable dining table or a breakfast nook.
In a mixed design you could have black kitchen cabinets and white open shelves for visual contrast or grey kitchen cabinets with matching shelves for a cohesive look. On the same note, two-tone kitchen cabinets can be an interesting option if you want to play with colors and to create a dynamic decor. Another way to add color to the kitchen is by filling the open shelves with all sorts of items just as cups, containers, dishes and other things that contrast with the wall behind them. But color is just one of the things you can focus on when furnishing and decorating a room. Space-efficiency is another wonderful advantage that’s linked to open kitchen shelving. Let‘s say your kitchen has an odd layout or you have some empty corners to fill. Corner kitchen cabinets are one option but if you feel like they take up too much space or they make the room feel small, use open shelves instead. They can fit in all sorts of odd spaces such as nooks between the door and the wall or above the doors and windows.
