The kitchen is the heart of your home, where family gathers and we nourish our good health. So, why not show it a little extra love with an easy home improvement project?
Quick do-it-yourself projects don’t need to be complicated or take up much more time than cooking a plate of pasta. In fact, one of the easiest ways to upgrade your kitchen is with some handy sliding shelves – it only takes 5 minutes!
Here are 5 ways to install sliding shelves to you’re your kitchen clean, organized and ready to go.
- Economize your essential pantry space
For those with a narrow pantry, or no pantry at all, quickly installing sliding shelves will not only give you more surface space, but it will help to easily organize your groceries!
- Install a pull-out trash can
Trash in your kitchen can be bothersome, get in your way, or be just plain unsightly. If it’s not contained well, it can start to smell, and foul odors don’t mix with cooking and eating. By installing a sliding shelf, you can tuck your trash can beneath the countertop so it’s out of the way when you’re not using it, and easily accessible when it’s time to clean up.
- Make pots and pans more accessible
Instead of reaching into the back of your cabinet and fumbling with heavy pots and pans, simply install a sliding shelf that brings the heavy items to you. Glide the shelf out of the cabinet, grab what you need and then tuck it away again. It makes cleaning up less painful too!
- Create storage for Tupperware or cleaning supplies
Maintaining a clean kitchen is important for keeping your family healthy. Easily store a supply of towels, disinfectants, and soap in a designated drawer so they are always readily available. Adding a shelf beneath your kitchen sink is easy and will ensure you have enough storage space for these essential items.
- Organize your spices or cutlery drawer
Is your oregano, paprika and black pepper all jumbled together? Instead of wasting time searching for what you need to season your dish, use a sliding shelf to organize your spice rack so that each one is clearly visible. You might even end up rediscovering some flavors.
The next time your family gathers for a holiday dinner or you’re passing along a secret family recipe, you’ll be happy with how easy it is to find what you need in your newly organized and re-designed kitchen space. Plus, this transformation only requires a few basic household items like a screwdriver, pencil, measuring tape and 30 minutes on a Sunday afternoon.
