Colour Schemes for Your Kitchen

Only a few kitchen styles and colour schemes survive the ever-changing trends. Don't get caught up in the latest and greatest kitchen, which will quickly fade out and make your home look dated, if not tacky. When planning your next home construction or kitchen renovation, learn as much as you can about kitchen timeless designs and options. Then choose one that fits your personality and style. 

Here are some stunning kitchen colour schemes that have withstood the test of time. Note that matching accessories, appliances, tiles design, and storage may be ideal, but some creative mix could also go a long way in terms of aesthetic and style.

To help you with planning, here are the best colour schemes we think are best for kitchens:

  • Classic blues and grey
  • Tans and browns

Maximising Space in the Kitchen

Maximising Space in the Kitchen

We all want a large kitchen with a walk-in pantry, storage for seasonal décor, and enough space to hide all of our appliances. But, in reality, most of us are confined to a small kitchen with barely enough space to store our collection of reusable water bottles. Circulation is important especially in a room where you prepare meals; counter spaces or a kitchen island where you can work on and corner spaces for storage of some knick-knacks that you don’t use often are highly essential. 

While we can't change the cost of living, we can provide organizing solutions that will make your current space feel infinitely more comfortable. Do a Marie Kondo and maximise space in the kitchen.

Here are some tips to maximise your space in the kitchen:

  • Ditch bulky packaging
  • Place everyday items at eye level
  • Install slide-out drawers
  • Install upper shelves
  • Put everything in place
  • Make use of hooks
  • Use drawer separators
  • Create groupings
Ditch bulky packaging

Ditch bulky packaging

Foods such as cereals and chips are frequently packaged in large, bulky boxes or air-filled bags that take up more space than the contents. Decant them into clear, space-saving, stackable containers to save shelf space while also making your snacks look cute.

Place everyday items at eye level

Place everyday items at eye level

We're all struggling to reach those higher shelves. Keep them for seasonal items and entertaining necessities such as platters and trays. Use the easier-to-reach shelves for items you use every day, such as plates and bowls.

Install slide out drawers

Install slide-out drawers

Most cabinets have plenty of storage space, but getting to it can be difficult at times. Install slide-out drawers instead of kneeling down and reaching your entire upper body into the cabinet. These handy pull-outs add utility and make it simple to access that far-back cabinet space that you usually don't get to use.

Install upper shelves

Install upper shelves

If you don't have upper cabinets, a few shelves will suffice without the need for a contractor. Furthermore, the open shelving look is very popular in kitchens these days.

Put everything in place

Put everything in place

Labeling your containers, shelves, and drawers will not only help you find what you're looking for, but it will also hold you accountable on days when you're too lazy to organize. Because of the subtle labeling, this fridge has a place for everything and everything in its place.

Make use of hooks

Make use of hooks

You're wasting valuable storage space if you don't already have a set of hooks hanging as a kitchen catchall. Place some kitchen towels, cutting boards, and even plants here to keep them out of the way but still within reach when needed.

Use drawer separators

Use drawer separators

Regardless of how well-organized you think you are, unless you use drawer separators, the items scatter freely, creating a cluttered appearance. A few separators will keep groupings together and easy to sift through, such as utensils. Retrofit your drawers and make them adjustable depending on what you will use them for. 

Create groupings

Create groupings

Grouping specific categories together is one of the fundamentals of organisation. This makes it easier to find items and keeps everything together that you might need at the time. A well-organised and well-stocked coffee bar makes mornings much easier while a drawer with neatly stacked tea boxes is not just pleasing to the eye, it also gives you access to flavors for you to choose from.

Now you know the best kitchen storage organisation ideas that will help you make the most of your storage space and even create more. We hope that you try out these genius tricks to corral clutter and store cooking essentials to make your kitchen more functional and less chaotic.

Maximising space in your kitchen can be achieved through careful interior design. Maximising kitchen spaces isn’t just for putting order into a very used space in the house; it also saves you time and money. With a bit of creativity and problem solving, you can create a functional yet stylish kitchen that’s tailored to fit your lifestyle.
