Your kitchen can often be a daunting place to try and organize. As the main hub of most of your appliances, cookware, and on-hand gadgets, the never-ending accessories and food storage, your kitchen can fill up fast. Here are a few of our expert tips of ways to incorporate storage functionality into your new kitchen design.
More than any other storage solutions, homeowners crave a perfectly organized walk-in pantry. Pantries can be customized to provide ample shelf space, including pull-out baskets and drawers or can even be totally enclosed with cabinetry, providing a clean look.
Spice Drawers & Pull-Out Cabinetry
Tuck spices, oils and other cooking supplies away in a wall pull-out spice cabinet or spice drawer organizer. Out of sight yet still within reach when it’s time to cook.
Pullout Trash & Recycling
One of the best storage features for any kitchen is a trash cabinet. Keeping a trash bin out of sight but also easily accessible while cooking is essential, whether that be a single, double or even multi-bin unit.
The clever “utensils built-in cabinet” keeps serve ware and silverware conveniently within reach. These cabinets can be equipped with several containers, making it easily able to store those any oversized spoons, spatulas or whisks that don’t lend themselves to flat storage.
Have an impressive collective of charcuterie and grazing boards? A custom drawer with built-in dividers allows boards of all sizes to be comfortably stored upright while easily accessible.
Just about all of us could use a clutter-free countertop, which is why appliance garages are so popular. Whether it be hiding a blender, toaster, or mixer, this is a great solution to keep semi-used appliances within reach while maintaining a clean kitchen aesthetic.
Deep Drawer Organizer
For ease and accessibility, nothing beats deep drawer storage. With one pull, large stored items are at your fingertips. A variety of movable interior dividers can be added to keep plates, bowls and pans stacked tightly in place.
Multi-purposed Toe Kick Drawers
Toe kick drawers are hidden in an often wasted space — the baseboard under your kitchen cabinets. The slim design is ideal for storing baking sheets, platters and other thin items. The best part about these drawers are that they’re push activated and opened by the push of your foot! We’ve seen many things stored in the toe kick drawer, but our most recent favorite is the built-in step stool!
Pets are treasured family members and more and more we’re designing kitchens around man’s best friend. If you have the space, why not incorporate a built-in feeding and watering station for your pet? The kitchen, laundry or mudroom are ideal places for pets to dine.
At-home Java Spot
Perk up your morning routine by incorporating a home coffee station into your new kitchen. These clever beverage hubs hold all the fixings for your cup of Joe in one convenient and organized spot.
Not entirely known for its functionality (more so aesthetic appeal) is the open shelving concept. Incredibly popular of late, open shelving allows for displaying decorative accessories or injecting a modern vibe into your kitchen design.
