It has been said many times that the kitchen is the heart of the home; this is as true now as it has ever been in American history. Families gather for holiday togetherness in the kitchen, friends chat and laugh in kitchens everywhere, waiting for their hosts to prepare snack and treats. Due to their central position in all homes, having a clean, organized kitchen has become extremely important, making kitchen storage the perfect area to focus on when choosing a house warming gift for new home owners.
When choosing kitchen storage, specifically for the new home owner, there are two general types of ideas - the kinds of storage that are appropriate and needed in just about any kitchen, and those more suited to the individual kitchen and personalities of the owner. If you know the owner well, and have seen the new home (or pictures of the new home's kitchen), then consider a gift that specifically suits that kitchen. For example, you may have seen the kitchen, and noticed that it is small, and low on drawer and cupboard storage. Also, you know the home owner to be an avid cook, so you wonder to yourself where they will keep their spices. The perfect gift might be a magnetic spice rack, the type where a modern looking metal sheet is mounted on a wall, or inside a cabinet door, then neat, metal containers hold spices, magnetically stored away on the mounted metal sheet. Myriad such ideas for specific storage needs exist, and a walk through a home organizing store would reveal many ideas to suit any kitchen.
Run a Shelf: If you have a wall in your kitchen that doesn't have any cabinets on it then it is the perfect place for you to run a shelf. Running a shelf will allow you to put whatever you wish on that shelf and will free up a great deal of extra space in your kitchen. Most people stick to putting decorations on kitchen shelves, but the sky's the limit and really depends on your taste and storage space needs
