Kitchen Storage Solutions

Creative, multi-tiered storage cabinets are ranked one of the top design trends of 2017, and our craftsmen have been working on new methods for years.

This article shows you 4 creative storage solutions that will totally make life in the kitchen easier.

Around the Stove

When you’re pan-searing that delicious Mahi fillet, you’ve only got seconds to react.

You can’t be running across the kitchen for the smoked paprika, dried oregano, and Himalayan sea salt.

So why not keep all of your seasonings and spices handy near the stove.

You can implement your spice rack right into the cabinets around your stove.

How many spices do you think can fit on this rack?  Is it enough for you? (It definitely is for me!)

Built into this cabinet set is more large storage spaces, too.

You can keep your mixing bowls nearby, as well as larger items like the bag of flour or brown sugar, oils, and more.

 

In the Island

If you’ve got an island in your kitchen, you’ll find that you use it equally for both storage and counter space.

But having just one, large space in the middle doesn’t always create the most efficient storage area.

Multi-tiered drawers like these can help keep things more organized.

You have the options to arrange by common size, or keep all the tools you need for one specific task in one area.

Like this area for the mixer.

Slide-out Drawers and Shelves

Raise your hand if you love getting down on all fours and reaching into the depths of your lower cabinets.

Anyone...anyone...... yea, me either.

Slide out drawers and shelves give your back a break by allowing you to see pretty much everything that’s in the space without having to climb into the cabinet.

The silverware drawer isn’t so uncommon, but I do like this custom dual-layer organizer.

Storage Wall

Whether or not you have a pantry, it’s likely you’ll be looking for more storage space for a few things.

What’s more, even if you have the space, you might not want to trek across the kitchen to grab it - especially while that Mahi’s on the stove and you're caramelizing pineapples in the broiler.

Having a wall of cabinets is super helpful in the kitchen and can help keep things near at hand without disrupting the style of your space.

Notice how the refrigerator - the coolest cabinet around (gosh, that's lame - sorry) - blends in seamlessly with the style of the cabinet wall.

In this example, you can see how there are different kinds of storage options, like slide out racks and shelves.

You can store baking sheets up top, near the oven and keep them organized with separators.

You can also add more slide-out cabinets on the lower level.

Just imagine how much you can store in this wall of cabinets, and how much easier would it be if everything was nearby.

 

So, what do you think?

Sometimes it's small things that make a big difference.

You might not need to redo your whole kitchen or get new cabinets, but adding some creative, useful storage solutions might give you
