Modern kitchen installations are becoming very intelligent, practical and impressive. Before you start thinking about the installation of your new kitchen, give some thought to the following tips, to ensure your kitchen storage meets your lifestyle. Remember, we all want less clutter in our environment. Think about what you would like to be on show and what can be hidden away.
Storage Solutions for your New Kitchen
- Take an inventory what you have and need in your kitchen. Do you have lots of pans, do you need deep drawers specifically for them? Do you use lots of spices but would like them discreetly behind a closed door? Would a built-in pantry work if you have a large family and lots of food.
- How do you use your kitchen? Is it a functional family space where lots of cooking and preparation happens? Or, is it an entertaining space where streamlined drawers is desirable. What works and what doesn’t currently, would you prefer things to be in a different configuration. A good example is a drawer holding baking trays and pans that should be near the oven and cutlery drawers near the dishwasher.
- Think about solutions for problems that you already encounter. Think about new storage solutions that provide a solution and not repeat the same problems.
- Don’t worry about the size of your kitchen. Small layouts can employ some clever storage solutions to maximise the space. Larger layouts can explore open shelving, pantries, wine fridges, sub-zero applications.
