We store lots and lots of things in our kitchens — from pots, pans, and cookbooks to cutlery, Tupperware, and small appliances. And the shelves can get pretty packed. With the addition of one of these three Ikea kitchen cabinets, it’s possible to free up space for those extra items you never know where to store.

Choose a spot in or near your kitchen for extra pantry space and consider introducing a new cabinet to optimize your kitchen storage. With less clutter, it will be easier to find everything you need when cooking. Check out these three great Ikea kitchen cabinets that will solve all your kitchen storage woes.

Hauga cabinet with two doors

Ikea’s Hauga cabinet is plain and simple: It has one upper shelf and two lower shelves behind two cabinet doors. This pantry cabinet is great for small kitchens at only 27-1/2 by 45-5/8 inches, so if you live in a small apartment or with just one other person, it’s ideal. It comes in white or gray, so you can choose the color that best suits your kitchen’s interior. Place this handy, inexpensive Ikea kitchen cabinet tightly next to your existing counter space and organize away!

Havsta storage combination with glass doors

A taller, fancier option, the Havsta storage cabinet includes four levels of shelving behind glass cabinet doors. Its lower cabinetry is similar to the Hauga. The Havsta is your best bet if you want to display special dinnerware plates, mugs, wine glasses — you name it. In this way, it can sort of double as a china closet, if you so choose. The dimensions are 31-7/8 by 18-1/2 by 83-1/2 inches. In addition to white and gray, the Havsta is available in a dark brown color. Corner this cabinet or place it flush against a wall and get to optimizing your storage!

Hemnes glass door cabinet with three drawers

If drawers are more your style, go with Ikea’s Hemnes cabinet. Not only is it super stylish, but it has loads of space for your kitchen’s odds and ends. Even better, it's available in five color combinations: white satin, white satin/light brown, black-brown, black-brown/light brown, and red stained/light brown stained. Its dimensions are 35-3/8 by 77-1/2 inches, so triple-check your measurements so you know you have enough space.

With any of these options, you can hide away certain items, store others in practical places, and get organized. Though these Ikea kitchen cabinets may seem super similar at first glance, each one has its own unique features. Depending on the color scheme and size of your kitchen, one may work better than another for your home. But they all do one job fabulously: adding much-needed storage space to your kitchen.
