When it comes to designing or renovating kitchens, one of your priorities should involve storage. Keep in mind that you will be storing a lot of kitchen stuff in that area so you have to make sure that there is enough space. This will ensure that your kitchen remains clean and free of clutter.
How much cabinet storage to install for your kitchen will depend on the number and size of the items that you need to keep as well as the size of your kitchen. Here are some simple tips to help you determine the right size cabinets for your kitchen:
Assess your kitchen – Consider the size of your kitchen area. Think about its appearance. Will the size stay the same? Is it possible that you will be renovating it within a few years and making it bigger? How frequent will you be cooking in your kitchen? What items will you be storing inside the cabinets? Do you have enough space for additional cabinets? Make sure to assess everything before having new cabinets installed or before remodeling your storage area.
Write down all your kitchen items – Gather all your kitchen items, and write everything down on a sheet of paper or on your tablet. Break them out into categories, such as kitchen utensils, perishable and nonperishable food, electric appliances, drinking glasses, dishes, linens, cleaning tools, etc. This way, you will have an overview of how much storage space you need.
Determine the appropriate storage space – The ideal drawer frontage should be 1,400 inches for kitchens that are less than 150 square feet, 1,700 inches for medium-sized kitchens and 2,000 inches for kitchens which are over 350 square feet.
