Just throw it under the sink. That seems to be a common thought among homeowners looking to hide the “stuff” cluttering their homes. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. If there is one area in the house that creates the bigger challenge of storage, it is under the sink. It’s not the easiest to organize, and it can be a challenge to create storage under your kitchen or bathroom sink due to pipes getting in the way. In the kitchen you may also have a garbage disposal taking up some serious prime real estate. Below are a few helpful tips to setting getting over your under the sink woes.
- Hang a tension bar. This is a magical tool. Hang a tension bar in the front of the cabinet and hang cleaning bottles from the bar. They are off the lower level, creating more storage space, and can easily be seen and moved.
- Don’t forget about the lazy Susan. For those items that you use on repeat, place them on the lazy Susan. This ensures that those items are easily accessible and can be seen.
- Pullout Baskets. As we age, it becomes more difficult to bend over to grab items, let alone see what is in the back of the cabinet. Installing pullout baskets or shelves solves this dilemma. I love my pull out shelves and I can’t imagine my life without them.
