Proper storage is essential for every kitchen for it to be functional. One of the best ways of incorporating storage in your kitchen is by adding cabinets of different sizes. If you are looking to increase the amount of storage that your kitchen has then using the vertical space available is also a must. 

To give you an idea of how you can use your vertical space here are six open cabinet designs that you can use for your house.

1. Multilevel timber cabinets

By incorporating multilevel wooden cabinets like this, you will not only be able to maximize the storage space available in your kitchen but will also get a particular place for storing small utility items. Apart from this using building materials like timber can give your cabinets an extended durability so that you do not have to redesign your kitchen often.

2. Rectangular shape cabinet

If you want to create a certain place in your kitchen for holding liquor or cold drink bottles then building a similar looking rectangular shaped cabinet is highly recommended. These cabinets can also be used for holding condiments like sauces and spices. By placing the cabinet right above your gas range, you can make it more convenient for yourself to reach out for cooking essentials while preparing a meal.

If you do not require a lot of space in your kitchen and are searching for an organised option for storing your kitchen utensils, then building such an open shelf is a perfect idea. The rack can run across the entire length of your kitchen so that it gives you a flat surface to store all your utensils right above your counter space. Apart from this by keeping the shelves open you do not have to add any doors which make it convenient for you to grab a utensil when needed.
