Whether you are a professional chef, a busy mom who enjoys preparing creative meals or a novice who specializes in scrambled eggs on toast, having a functional kitchen space is sure to feature high on your home improvement wish-list. 

One way to ensure every inch of your food prep area is put to good use is to call in the help of RJM Woodworx to put a customized kitchen plan into action. RJM Woodworx will consult with you and then, after designing cupboard space to suit your unique needs, will manufacture and install quality wooden units that will enhance your home. To plant the seed of inspiration, RJM Woodworx shares five practical tips on kitchen storage.

 
1. Take the time to plan ahead

When planing your new kitchen design, focus on what you need and not just on what looks good. What you want is an end result with maximum packing space and easy access so that there is minimal walking, bending, stretching, climbing or digging around to find whatever utensil or bowl you are looking for.

 
2. Choose quality over quantity

You may be tempted to cut corners when it comes to quality in your new kitchen, saving a buck wherever possible is always a pleasure. However, an important point to consider is that you use the cupboards in your kitchen more than those in other rooms. Shelves need to be strong enough to support heavy piles of plates, drawers need to open and close smoothly and worktops will need to handle heat and water for many years to come. 

 
3. Maximize your corner spaces

We all know where the Bermuda Triangle is. It is somewhere in the deep, dark packing space some people call the kitchen corner cupboard. It needn’t be this way because by getting clever with this huge storage opportunity you won’t end up on your hands-and-knees digging for things. Great ideas include corner banks of drawers, LeMans pull-out units and the good-ol’ Lazy Susan.

 
4. Use pullout shelves or drawers

There is nothing worse than not being able to reach something, or having to unpack half a storage cupboard to get at something that is hiding all the way in the back. By using pullout shelving or drawers in a kitchen the back of your shelf is easily accessible and can be used for day-to-day kitchen necessities and only things you use once a year.

 
5. Be inventive with spice storage

Whether you prefer a slide-out spice rack that fits neatly into a thin verticle space next to your stove or a wide drawer parallel to your work surface that presents your spices at a glance, it makes life a whole lot easier when your spices are easy to see and reach.
