Put more open shelves than closed cabinets.

You can also go deep by putting more drawers.
Make sure to have handy pull out drawers that are extra deep which will store all cleaning supplies. It is also a good storage area for huge items.
Magnets are also a great help for tool organization.

Upcycling the storage.
