Reinvent Your Kitchen: 8 Benefits of Custom Kitchen Cabinets

The kitchen has long been known as the heart of the home. It’s where we feed our family, cook together, make memories, and start and end each day. Having custom kitchen cabinets designed to keep your life better organized can be a game changer.

When this space is in disarray it can set your entire day back. Disorganized drawers, cabinets that are too full and a pantry that is overloaded can make everyday tasks more difficult and stressful than they need to be.

Organizing everything from your dishes to your drawers helps streamline cooking, getting out the door in the morning and wrapping up your day.

When it comes to organizing, you also shouldn’t stop at your kitchen. Organizing your mudroom or laundry room cabinets can also be life-changing.

Here are a few solutions to help spark your own home organization.

Figure out what doesn’t work

When it comes to a kitchen remodel or an organization project, try and start with why you’re there in the first place. What is it about your kitchen or space that is disorganized. Thinking about what’s wrong in your space will is the best place to start.

If your kitchen doesn't inspire you to cook, that's a problem. Cooking at home has a huge amount of health benefits.

Think about what doesn’t work in your current kitchen. If the pantry is always overflowing, or your pots don’t ever seem to fit the same way, you may be spending too much time grappling with these.

The same goes for the mudroom or laundry room cabinets. These are especially vital places to stay organized when you have small children at home. If you’re always looking for shoes, backpacks, sunscreen, and hats, you’re likely always running late rushing out of the door.

Having a more organized home has been linked to better physical and mental health. Having a more organized home will do more for your overall well-being than you'd think.

Sit down and make a list of your current problem areas. Identify what bothers you, why it bothers you and where you wish you were more organized. Once you have your list, you can move forward in finding a solution.

Planning a solution with custom kitchen cabinets

Now that you’re armed with what bothers you about your current space, you’re ready to tackle the next phase. This is where the fun begins.

You can now start to look for solutions that work for you. Browsing online, looking at inspiration boards are all great places to start.

There are a ton of great ideas on blogs to help inspire you.

Next, you’ll want to look at each problem on your list and think of your dream solution.

For example, let’s say you hate that all of your large cutting boards can’t fit in your cabinets. A solution for a new cabinet can be one that doesn’t have shelves so you can easily slide them in.

If you have a large collection of small kitchen gadgets that you use regularly, make these more accessible.

Drawer organizers can be a huge help in putting everything in its place. If you currently don’t have very many drawers, that’s a problem that can easily be fixed by installing a cabinet with only drawers.

Let’s say you have a large family and are always pulling dishes in and out of the dishwasher. An open cabinet with dish slots could save you a ton of time.

You just slide a dish in or out as you need them or are putting them away. Put this where the entire family can reach and you have a functional way to store plates.

When the layout is the problem

It can also be extremely frustrating when a kitchen isn’t well thought out. If your dishwasher is 12 steps from the sink, you'll likely find yourself with stacks of dishes piled on the counter.

With a new layout, you can make the space more functional in addition to being organized.

A custom kitchen cabinet can come with multiple shelves, no shelves, drawers, organizers and more. You get to decide what you use most and what you don’t.

Using custom cabinets to organize other parts of your home

Custom cabinetry doesn’t end with the kitchen. Aside from a chaotic mudroom or a disorganized laundry room, the possibilities for custom cabinetry are endless.

In a bathroom, for example, these rooms are generally small and every inch counts. Standard stock cabinetry doesn’t always fit your lifestyle. Here’s where a custom built cabinet can be a game changer.

If you have an unruly make-up collection, custom built cabinets with a lot of drawers for small objects may be your best bet. Same goes for large hair tools such as blow dryers and curling irons. Keep these from being tangled messes under your sink with a custom cubby.

The garage is another place we may not think about when it comes to using a custom cabinet. The garage often tends to be a dumping ground for random items.

From holiday decorations, pool toys, and garden tools, anything we don’t know what to do with, often ends up in the garage. Take back this untapped storage potential with organizers.

You can apply the same principles you do in your kitchen to your garage, basement, or storage closet. Cabinets provide a neat and orderly place to store any number of items.

In a formerly disorderly storage room, you can transform it into a wrapping station or holiday workshop with custom cabinetry. Take wrapping paper, holiday decorations, and art supplies and put everything in its place.

With new custom cabinetry, you’ll have a place for everything in addition to a new counter to work off of. You can use it for crafting, wrapping, art projects with kids, or any hobby. Think of it as a bonus space you never knew you had.

Put the game plan into action

Custom kitchen cabinets are an amazing way to make your house more efficient. Once you’ve determined what your biggest setbacks are and created a game plan, you’ll be amazed and how seamless the rest will go.

You’ve identified your struggles, what doesn’t work for you and your family and created a plan for change. Realizing your kitchen’s shortcomings will help you plan for what will make your life easier.
