The global pandemic changed the way people utilize space, and homeowners planning renovations are looking to industry professionals to provide solutions that make the most of their space. The good news is that homeowners have gained a better understanding of the value of making real investments in storage and organization solutions, not just adding baskets and open shelving. Read on to learn about organizational solutions that add real value to any project.
Stability You Can See
Solutions that combine functionality and durability like the patented “No Wiggle” cabinet pullouts from Hardware Resources are a great way to add value to any cabinet project. “No Wiggle” technology eliminates the side-to-side movement and sag commonly seen in other cabinet pullouts. Best of all, this upgrade can cost less than traditional cabinet pullouts and is easy to sell clients because it’s easy to see the difference when comparing “No Wiggle” pullouts to ordinary pullouts in a showroom or by watching a video.
Multi-Room, Multi-Function Organizers
The kitchen is the central hub for the home and the place where organization plays a key role in the functionality of the space. Managing the storage of everything from small spice jars and cutlery to bulk-sized bags of rice and small appliances is a real challenge, but solutions from the kitchen can be used to tackle challenges in other areas of the home as well. Applying kitchen storage solutions to other rooms, including the bath, laundry, bedrooms, and family room, can be a great way to make the most of limited cabinet and drawer space. Here are a few examples –
Drawer Inserts – In the kitchen, use them to organize cutlery; in the bathroom, use them to organize grooming products like toothpaste, hair ties, small jars, and tubes of lotion.
Trashcan Pullout – Commonly mounted under the sink in the kitchen, a trashcan pullout in the bath is an ideal way to keep discarded items out of sight. It also eliminates the need to have a trashcan taking up floor space, an important consideration when space is limited.
Pullout Baskets – Using pullout baskets to organize the pantry helps ensure that dry foods don’t get lost in the back of the shelf. In the bath, they are a great solution to making it easy to access larger containers like shampoo and conditioner. They are also ideal for storing extra items for guests like towels and toiletries.
Door Mounted Storage Racks – Add functionality to a kitchen or bath space by utilizing the cabinet doors for storage space. These door-mounted racks are perfect for organizing items that need to be within easy reach.
When the space has been organized, and the functionality expanded, don’t forget to add finishing touches like decorative hardware and cabinet lighting. Hardware Resources offers Jeffery Alexander® and Elements™ decorative hardware solutions in a wide range of styles and finishes that complement any decor. TASK Lighting and Power offers innovations that put light and power within reach but out of sight. The patented lighted power strip is installed under the cabinet and eliminates the need to cut into the backsplash for power outlets.
