Maximize Countertop Space with Kitchen Displays & Organizers

The kitchen is more than just a place to prepare meals. It has a long-standing reputation as the space where families gather, entertain guests and express their culinary creativity. Because of this, countertop space is a valuable commodity. To maximize your kitchen’s functionality while maintaining an organized and stylish appearance that even Gordon Ramsay would be proud of, you’ll want to consider incorporating products from shopPOPdisplays.

Why Are Kitchen Displays Important?

Functional and visually appealing, a well-organized kitchen not only enhances efficiency but also creates a pleasant environment conducive to both cooking and socializing. Here’s why kitchen displays are crucial when it comes to improving this space:

  1. Maximize space: Kitchen display shelves and risers help you increase and make the most of vertical space. This allows more valuable countertop real estate for cooking meals.
  2. Stylish and functional: Kitchen displays serve as both storage solutions and decorative elements. They come in a variety of materials and designs, allowing you to customize your kitchen’s aesthetic in order to showcase your personal style.
  3. Easy access and visibility: Frequently used items are conveniently within reach when you use kitchen displays. Open shelves and organizers provide easy access, allowing you to quickly locate and retrieve necessary utensils, spices or cookware.

10 Tips for Utilizing Kitchen Displays

  1. Utilize Shelf Organizers: Organizing your kitchen shelves (whether they’re open or within the cabinets/ pantry) ensures everything has its own place and prevents clutter from building up on the counters. Shelf organizers such as baskets and acrylic risers offer a way to capitalize on the vertical space between kitchen display shelves. Use them to neatly stack plates, bowls and cups, creating a streamlined and neat appearance.
  2. Add Layers with Tiered Risers: There are so many uses for risers. Not only do they work wonders within your shelves, but they can also help maximize the vertical space of your countertops. Using tiered risers to organize your herbs and spices is a great way to keep everything you need visible and accessible, while not taking up a lot of room. You can also place these tiered versions inside the cabinets or pantry.
  3. Consolidate Items on Trays: The goal is to consolidate, but that doesn’t mean that your countertops should be completely barren. Kitchen display trays allow you to group items together in a way that looks visually appealing and purposeful. Salt and pepper shakers tend to remain out at all times since they are some of the most-used items in people’s kitchens. Consider placing them on your choice of tray along with the utensil holder, containers of sugar and flour, or even decorative items like candles and plants. The tray creates a portable station, so the items can be easily moved around and placed where needed.

Specialty serving displays for ice-cream cones, cupcakes and cake pops are great for entertaining. They look inviting to guests while providing a purposeful and organized presentation for your treats. Many have tiered, 360 degree designs that ensure they take up minimal counter space.
  6. Install Pegboards: Versatile and customizable, pegboards are a convenient way to utilize your wall space in order to free up the counter and declutter the cabinets. Hang pots, pans and frequently used utensils on hooks, ensuring they are readily available, or you can use it to create a coffee station or herb garden directly on your wall and off the counter.
  7. Install Hooks and Shelves Under Cabinets: Not enough space on your wall for a pegboard? You can still utilize the area between your cabinets and counters by installing hooks or small kitchen display shelves. Hang mugs, utensils or scaled-down pots and pans or set up a spice rack. There are so many possibilities for making the most of that space, which would otherwise go unused.
  8. Incorporate an Expandable Dish Drying Rack: Opting for an expandable dish drying rack that fits in the space above and around your sink provides a designated area for drying dishes post-wash that won’t intrude on your countertop space. Plus, the excess water will drain directly into the sink instead of onto your countertops.
  9. Add More Drawers: In instances where shelves aren’t able to fully contain the clutter, drawers can create an enclosed space and offer more compartments for organization. This acrylic 5 drawer organizer creates extra layers of storage, whether you place it directly on the counter, on a shelf in the pantry or even under the sink. More places to put things ensures a lower likelihood of random utensils, spices and other odds and ends floating around on the counter.

Add a Bar Cart or Barrel: Single Window Cedar Barrel 20" Diameter x 30" HighStoring your wine and liquor on the counter not only takes up valuable space, but also has the potential to ruin your beverage.
