The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms in the house. This is where breakfast, lunch and dinner are made, after-school snacks are distributed, and where people gather during parties. So, the kitchen must be useful, but also must be beautiful. One of the main problems in the kitchen is storage and this problem also tends to detract from the beauty of the room. Fortunately, innovative kitchen storage ideas abound. Regardless of the size, shape or theme of the kitchen, there is a solution to storage problems. Here are some of the newest innovative kitchen storage designs to pop up in new homes built as well as renovations:
Put It On Display
In this devol Kitchen, the prettiest items are displayed on the exposed wall-to-wall reclaimed wooden shelves and cubbies so the less attractive essentials can be tucked away in the cabinets. The color-coding adds a soothing sense of rhythm to the space, too.
There are so many things you can do with drawers these days that keep them tidy and make the most of their use. Multiple partitions and levels keep your equipment organized. Lining the inner drawers is the best way to use this space efficiently.
Repurpose Old Office Supplies
Line up old filing cabinets or work tables in a row as a makeshift buffet/ console table. Leanne Ford elevated this kitchen by hanging large-scale artwork near the exposed storage pieces. The mounted wine rack is also a stylish storage solution.
The safety measure for the drawer is the knife holder which is part of the tool organizer. The blade slides in and protects fingers when taking things out of the drawer. Another innovative kitchen storage design is a partitioned inner drawer for your pots and pans. This leaves you without the pile of pots you would normally find in a cupboard.
There are all kinds of ways to use corner space that just seem like a waste of space. Under the cabinet corner can be built in a bread box, wine rack or even a spice rack.
Roll In a Bar Cart
When your kitchen is minuscule, you’ll have to surrender the dream of a kitchen island (for now, at least). The next best—and most proportionally appropriate—thing? A bar cart! It provides a little more storage and you can also opt for a little rolling cart with a butcherblock top for cooking.
Under the Cabinet
Don’t know what to do with your wine glass? You want to display it so, install it under the cabinet shelf. Slide the stem as well as the glasses hang elegantly and aside.
Don’t limit storage to areas within arms’ reach. A sliding ladder helps you reach ceiling-height cabinets, which are perfect for that breadmaker you never use.
An easy way to store dishes is with a peg. Slide plates in between and it makes for a much more attractive look than just stacked plates. Place the hooks in the cupboard to hang the coffee mugs over your plates and create another cozy cabinet look.
In this kitchen, all the chaos is hidden behind closed doors, which open to reveal an expansive pantry. And if that’s not impressive enough, check out the pull-out willow baskets hold fruit and vegetables.
Ease and Efficiency
In your drawers, cupboards and even your kitchen, think about what you want that can make things easier for you. One thing you can do is install pull-out shelves for cabinets for easy access to the sections at the back.
Get Creative with Cabinets
Inspired by a vintage printer’s desk, the cabinets in this California kitchen were made to look like drawers. This creates some visual contrast without having to compromise your storage needs.
The second and very important step you can take is to ask for a taller cabinets. The standard height is 30 “and, while leaving room above it for decorative items, why not choose a 42” cabinet and get more storage? Much of above the cabinet space turns into a busy dust magnet.
Convert a Closet
