Storing Small Kitchen Appliances

Posted on July 1, 2019

When most homeowners have their kitchens designed, they usually allocate space or niches especially for the bigger appliances like the oven, stovetop, refrigerator, and dishwasher. However, most homeowners forget about the smaller appliances so they end up stacking them on top of each other or placing them on the countertop, which can be a waste of counter space. It can be terribly inconvenient to have to move these small appliances whenever you need space for prepping meals. This is why it is equally important to think about the smaller appliances when having your kitchen designed. If you’re undergoing kitchen remodeling, you might want to take these smaller appliances in mind when adding improvements to your current layout. Below are some ideas on how you can store small kitchen appliances:

Appliance Cabinets

This can be anything from the full-length ones to the smaller cupboard sized ones. Appliance cabinets are great, as they are designed specifically for your kitchen appliances. How many small appliances do you own? Most households have a toaster, a microwave oven, a coffee maker, a food processor, a food mixer, and a blender, among other things. That’s a whole lot of small appliances to keep on your kitchen countertop or kitchen island. An appliance cabinet can take care of your storage needs while making each appliance as accessible as your refrigerator or stovetop. To make them extra convenient, have a kitchen remodeling professional add outlets so you don’t have to take them out when you need to use them.

Custom-Built Drawers and Cabinets

Microwave drawers are becoming more popular, as homeowners realize the convenience of having one. It doesn’t have to stop there though, as you can also have custom-built cabinets made especially for each small appliance. Like a small niche for your coffee maker that you can open whenever you need to make coffee or a pullout surface for your food processor, blender, and food mixer. They’ll probably cost just as much or maybe even less that your cabinetry and they’ll certainly make your life easier.

You can have your contractor integrate these add-ons while undergoing kitchen remodeling so you can maximize your remodel.
