We know there are many reasons for planning a new kitchen from the current one looking shabby and tired to the desire to open up and enlarge the current space. We also know that the need for more storage is often a key requirement of a new kitchen design. Well, help is at hand with a host of functional and well designed storage solutions that will ensure that you have a home for everything, keeping your items well organised and your worksurfaces clutter free.
Storage in the kitchen breaks down into a number of key areas which include larder storage, corner storage, base unit storage, wall storage and drawer storage. Modern larder storage units have the benefit of being able to store a huge amount of packaged groceries. Not only that but they effortlessly glide towards you with a minimum of effort with everything on view for easy access. We recommend the positioning of a larder near your working triangle of refrigeration, sink and cooker.
In the past corners in cupboards could lead to dark spaces and wasted space. But not anymore. The LeMans corner unit is perfect for storing your pots and pans and each tray comes fully out to you independently of the other. Anti-slip shelves eliminate the chance of anything slipping around.
A whole host of clever base pull-out storage options are available and they don’t all demand a lot of space. The popular 150mm pull-out comes in options ideal for storing items such as baking trays, cooking oils and there’s an option with a towel holder too. Both practical and small.
There are now pull down systems for wall units, so struggling to reach the highest parts of your wall cabinets and standing on tip toes are a thing of the past. The iMove is an example of a unit that makes life that little bit easier. It simply pulls down to you with one and 2 shelf options available.
Modern drawer storage offers so many possibilities too. From drawer inserts which partion your key cooking utensils and cutlery to storing pots and pans in high sided drawers. Storing heavier items such as food mixers and steamers is not a problem in high sided drawers with their heavy load capacity and effortless opening and closing.
