When designing a new kitchen, choosing the right storage solutions is the difference between a good kitchen and a well-designed, highly functional kitchen you’ll never want to leave. While finished cabinets and shiny new appliances may be the beauty, storage is the brawn that will ultimately simplify your life, whether you use your kitchen for entertaining, family meals, a home office or all the above. However, you may not know that there are some storage solutions that must be part of your design plan from the get-go; in other words, these features require factory installation and therefore can’t be added on later. With lack of storage space being the number one design regret, we’re sharing the top five solutions you’ll want to consider when designing a new kitchen.
1. Blind Corner Swing-outs
Blind corner swing-outs maximize space and provide easy access to odds and ends such as plastic or glass containers, pitchers and more.
2. Base Pantry Roll-out
This small space is big on storage and designed to fit between your cabinet doors. It features three shelves on full-extension runners, for easy access to spices or other small cooking essentials.
3. Roll-out Trays
Roll-out trays allow easy access to items without having to get on your hands and knees to reach the back of base cabinets. Roll-out trays are a great solution for storing cookware, glassware, dishware and food items.
4. Recycling Center
Keep your trash and recycling neatly organized with two separate bins that are easily hidden behind your cabinet doors.
5. Tray Dividers
These vertical dividers can be used in any base or wall cabinet to neatly separate cookie sheets, baking trays, platters and more.
