Kitchen Storage Tips

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Providing convenient and suitable storage for small, large and variously-shaped kitchen tools and equipment is one of the most important aspects of kitchen planning.

Whether you choose to have enclosed cupboards, or open shelves , the important thing is that everything should be easily seen, accessible and in the most convenient place.

Shelving

Open shelving

is cheap and easy to install, and suits people who like the look of their kitchen equipment and use it often. Shelves can be fitted where cupboards cannot, (for example, in front of windows, on the backs of cupboard doors, under sloping ceilings and in small recesses). An up-and-over shelf can also be fitted so that a heavy piece of equipment, such as a food processor, can sit in a cupboard and swing out, when required. Shelves can also be of different depths. Wider shelves are good for large plates, jugs and bowls, but it is useful to have some narrow shelves. One narrow shelf, running along the wall about 12 inches above the worktop and above any electric sockets, is indispensable for jars of herbs and spices and any other small items, which would get lost on deep shelves.

Cupboards

Enclosed cupboards can be very dominant in a kitchen and will usually set the style for the whole room. You can choose the simplest wooden, Shaker-style design and paint it, or you can have an elaborate, molded wooden kitchen in a dark stain and in between these, there are many variations of wooden, veneered or plastic-finished kitchens to choose from. If you plan carefully, you should not have to cover every wall with cupboards. It is often more pleasant to have some open wall space to hang a picture on, or to act as your home office. Having too many cupboards simply means you can shove things into them, which you don’t need and never even glance at. For a narrow kitchen where cupboard doors may open straight into your face, you can get cupboards with sliding doors, but these can be irritating to use and small things can often get hidden behind them.

Plan the interiors of cupboards carefully. A narrower shelf fitted inside a cupboard will mean that you have room to hang a set of shelves on the back of the cupboard door, which can be a more convenient way of storing small items. Low cupboards are easier to use if the shelves pull out on runners, so you can see what’s on them. Wire basket shelves will prevent things from rolling off. If the kitchen is next to the eating area, equipment for eating and table laying can be kept in a double-sided peninsula unit, to make more efficient use of the area.

Drawers

Drawers are among the most useful forms of storage. They can be any depth and size: shallow for linen, table mats and cutlery, square for dry foods and smaller items such as string and labels, and deep for upright bottles, saucepans, a basket or waste bin.

You can buy standard drawers and design the interior for a specific purpose (for example, fill them with wire baskets for vegetable storage, bottles and jars or laundry). Very narrow drawers, fitted with wire shelves, are available as part of some ranges of kitchen units, which can store nearly all your tins and dry foods in a very compact space. Such units can be short in height to fit next to an under-the-worktop refrigerator, or tall to fit next to a large refrigerator-freezer or indeed into any spare, narrow space in the kitchen.

    Kitchens are among the most difficult rooms in the house to clean. With their myriad loose parts, such as dishes and appliances, there are a lot of things that will need the attention of your dust cloth, sponge or broom. While it will probably take the better part of an afternoon to spring clean your kitchen, the end result is well worth it. Nothing beats a shiny, well-organized kitchen to set the right tone for a productive new year.

      Make Your Kitchen Sparkle

    1. Step 1

      Prepare for your spring cleaning by washing and putting away any dirty dishes. Remove appliances from the kitchen counters.

    2. Step 2

      Dust the entire kitchen. This includes windows, window sills, door frames, cabinet tops and lighting fixtures. Don’t forget the top of the refrigerator.

    3. Step 3

      Examine the back splashes and remote corners of counters and cabinets for previously hidden food stains. If you find any, scrub them off using mild soap and water.

    4. Step 4

      Wash down the kitchen counters. If your kitchen has a bar or an island, wash those as well.

    5. Step 5

      Clean the interior of your oven. If the oven has an automatic-cleaning feature, use that. If not, use a commercial oven cleaner and a scouring pad. The object is to thoroughly remove any baked-on food matter inside the oven.

    6. Step 6

      Remove the range coils from the top of your stove and clean them in warm, soapy water. Before replacing them, wipe down the entire surface of the stove with a damp cloth or paper towel.

    7. Step 7

      Empty your kitchen cabinets. Set their contents aside in a safe place, and then dust every shelf inside the cabinets, using a damp cloth. Give the interior cabinet walls a wipe-down while you’re in there. Once you’re done, replace the contents.

    8. Step 8

      Remove the contents of your kitchen pantry. Discard any food that’s too old to eat or that will never be used. Replace the contents in a neat, organized manner that will allow you to easily see what you’ve got in there.

    9. Step 9

      Clean out your refrigerator. Remove all the food, discarding anything that’s gone bad. Wipe down the interior, including walls, shelves and storage bins. Do the same thing with the freezer. Replace whatever food you’re keeping.

    10. Step 10

      Use a glass cleaner to wash the panes on your kitchen windows.

    11. Step 11

      Dust any window blinds you may have. If your kitchen windows have curtains, remove them for washing.

    12. Step 12

      Sweep, and then mop your kitchen floor.

    How to Color Match Kitchen Cabinets

    How to Color Match Kitchen Cabinets,How to Color Match,Kitchen Cabinets,choose the right colors,wood grain,cherry finish,Cherry cabinets match colors,Paint your kitchen cabinets,glossy white,French decor,bright colors,Modern interior designers,contemporary homes

    Families normally spend a large portion of their time in the kitchen, so it’s important to choose the right colors for that entire area, including the cabinets. Use colors that make you feel comfortable and complement the rest of your home.

    Step 1

    Determine whether you want a wood grain for your kitchen cabinets or whether you want to paint them. For example, if your house has a country look, you may want to select an oak wood grain to match the rest of your furniture. An oak grain goes well with colors generally associated with country decor, like blues and greens.

  • Step 2

    Choose a cherry finish if you like the traditional look. This includes Victorian and Old English decor. Cherry cabinets match colors like mauves, greens and maroon, colors often used in traditional decorating.

  • Step 3

    Paint your kitchen cabinets a glossy white if you like French or colonial decor. French decor incorporates bright colors, like blue, orange, yellow and red. The white will make bright color accents stand out.

  • Step 4

    Paint your cabinets a bright color to match your contemporary taste. Modern interior designers use bright colors when decorating contemporary homes. You may paint them any color you choose such as yellow, orange, blue, red or green. Display a few accents the same color as the cabinets to tie in everything.

    How to Get Your Kitchen Wood Cabinets Ready for Painting

    By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

    Painting your kitchen cabinets can freshen up your kitchen. It’s an inexpensive way to revitalize your wood cabinets and introduce new color to the room. But if you don’t properly prepare your cabinets, your project may not go smoothly. Take the time to get your kitchen cabinets ready for painting, and your project will likely have a more positive impact on your kitchen.

      How to Get Your Kitchen Wood Cabinets Ready for Painting

      Unique Kitchen Cabinets 

    1. Step 1

      Remove all foods, dish and glassware, and any other items you store in the cabinets. Wipe down the shelves and interior walls with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt.

    2. Step 2

      Designate a workspace. This space should include an area to store the doors and hardware as you remove them, an area for sanding and an area for priming and painting.

    3. Step 3

      Count the number of doors you need to paint. Create a “tagged bag” for each door. Do this by writing a number on sandwich bags to correspond with each door. Door 1 will have a bag tagged with the No. 1. Door 2 will have a bag with No. 2 written on it and so on. These will be for the hardware and screws.

    4. Step 4

      Start at one end of the bank of cabinets. Remove the first cabinet door. Do this by removing first the bottom screw of the bottom hinge attached to the frame. Remove the bottom screw of the top hinge. Put the screws in the bag marked No. 1.

    5. Step 5

      Remove the top screw from the bottom hinge. Hold the door in place as you remove the top screw from the top hinge to prevent the door from falling. Remove the hinges on the door. Remove the handle and place all the hardware into the bag.

    6. Step 6

      Mark this door with a No. 1 on the side of the door that faces the frame. This ensures that the doors and hardware are installed in the correct order. Mark the interior of the frame with the No. 1 as well. Put the door and bag in the designated storage area.

      Repeat the process for each door, marking each one with the subsequent number.

    7. Step 7

      Prepare the cabinet frame for painting. Wipe the frame of your cabinets with a damp cloth. Use a degreaser if needed to clean the surface. Lightly sand the frame with fine grit sandpaper.

    8. Step 8

      Wipe the frame down with a damp cloth to remove dust, and dry with a cotton cloth. Use a small brush to prime the cabinet frame. The primer adds durability to the paint and prevents the paint from “bleeding” into the wood, creating a blotchy effect.

    9. Step 9

      Let the primer dry for 24 hours before painting. Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours before installing the doors.

    10. Step 10

      Proceed to prepare the doors while the primer and then the paint on the frame dries. Clean each door with the cleaning product of your choice. Dry with a cotton cloth.

    11. Step 11

      Move the first door you removed to the sanding area. Lightly sand with a fine grit sand paper. Wipe the door with a slightly damp cloth to remove the dust from sanding. Take the door to the prime and paint area.

    12. Step 12

      Apply a coat of primer. Since you will prime over the penciled number, you need to mark the door again. Use a small piece of painters tape and write the number on it. Stick the painters tape to the side of the door. Let the primer dry for 24 hours.

    13. Step 13

      Remove the piece of painters tape and paint the door with the paint color of your choice. Add a second coat if desired. Continue to identify the door with the piece of painters tape. Repeat for each door.

    14. Step 14

      Reinstall your doors in the same order, starting at the same end as you did to remove the doors.
