What can I do for storage of my baking pans

Answered
We recently moved to a smaller house with a much smaller kitchen. I love to cook and have a large supply of cooking utensils. I have very little storage, and need some creative ideas to store my treasured baking pans and dishes, but still be able to get to them.

    My baking pans are are in long narrow under the bed plastic box on wheels....actually it’s under the dresser the microwave sits on....I pull it out when needed.

  • I keep some of my utensils (the most used) in an antique crock on my counter next to my stove.

    Storage pots are great for those used frequently. If you place those that are used infrequently in small covered shoe boxes in less used cupboards, you can gradually weed out the ones you don't really need. You might also decorate them for the seasons and gift them to special friends or relatives.

    Bulky things not used weekly in my kitchen go in the garage. Maybe pack them into a bin and store them in an easy to get to location somewhere else. Garage, floor of a closet, under a bed maybe.

    I looked up and saw that a couple of my cabinets had open space so I added a couple shelves. No more tippy stacks and I can reach 3 shelves rather than two.

    Lower cabinet shelves tend to lose things as they are too deep. Maybe find boxes the full depth so you aren't wasting the way back. You could do actual sliding drawers but so long as things aren't too heavy this works fine for me.

    And saddest. Maybe you would be happier if you went through it and gave some things that are not used often away. Your house is a container and much more enjoyable if not overstuffed.

    you could paint a basic pegboard, attacho wall space, if you have it. I think there is also removable adhesive paper that you could attach to any surface and not worry about damage, glue magnets to it, or there may even be some that is already magnetized, and hang your lighter weight items. (side of fridge, stove or get a hang over the door accessories / shoe bag and do what you can. Best of luck!
