Cabinet Storage Buying Guide

Before You Shop

Before you begin your kitchen design, think about any special storage or workspace requirements you might have. You can add some organizers after the cabinet installation, but many must be built into the original cabinet order. So it makes sense to review your needs with a kitchen design specialist.

Upper Cabinet Accessories

Upper cabinet storage accessories help keep frequently used items in reach:

  • Pull-down spice racks fit in or under the upper cabinets to save space and eliminate clutter.
  • Microwave shelving keeps countertop microwaves off the counter.
  • Pegs or hooks hold mugs and teacups.
  • An appliance garage hides blenders, toasters and infrequently used items.
  • Hanging cookbook racks keep spills off the pages while freeing counter space.
  • Pull-down or side-cabinet message centers make family communication easier.
  • Built-in smart device storage charges batteries and keeps technology away from food and beverages.
  • A built-in recipe cardholder makes it easy to keep track of recipes.

Lower Cabinet Accessories

Lower cabinet storage accessories are excellent solutions for silverware, recycling bins and more:

  • Roll-out baskets add a decorative touch and create usable space in narrow openings.
  • Drawer organizers keep silverware and kitchen tools handy.
  • Pull-out waste and recycling centers keep trash hidden, make cleanup easier and keep children and pets out of the garbage.
  • Cutting boards with integrated knife storage and pull-out tables create more task space.
  • Oversized Lazy Susan units make use of space in a corner cabinet.

Additional Ideas

Under-sink kitchen cabinets.

Kitchen designers are finding more ways to help use every inch of your kitchen. Here are a few more interesting options for kitchen storage.

  • Built-in basket systems store potatoes, onions and other produce with more ventilation than drawers.
  • Wine racks or cubbies store wine on its side, as vintners recommend. Some wine racks use the space between the refrigerator and cabinet.
  • Under-cabinet racks store wine glasses and other stemware to leave more in-cabinet space for other things.
  • Swing-out pantry racks make it easier to reach items stored in the back of the cabinet.
  • Flip-down sink trays transform the space in front of your sink into a convenient sponge-holding caddy.
