A well-organized kitchen is the heart of a home. When it comes to designing a modern kitchen, hidden storage spaces are one of the hottest trends. A clutter-free kitchen not only looks great but also makes cooking and entertaining enjoyable. Read on to discover some clever sources of hidden storage in the kitchen that you may not have thought of!
Toe Kick Drawers
Toe kick drawers are an excellent way to add hidden storage space on a central island because their design allows them to blend seamlessly into the unit. Although they’re only about six inches high, they provide plenty of extra space where you might consider keeping cutting boards or cookie sheets out of sight but within reach. These drawers can also be incorporated within your pantry if you have floor to ceiling cabinetry. This will also save you the strain of having to bend down and pull out drawers manually.
Pull-Out Pantry Shelves
Thin gaps between shelves may make it difficult for larger containers like boxes or bags to fit into the pantry. Installing pull-out shelf units in between your cabinets provides a lot more space and makes it easier for you to access items stored towards the back. Pull-out shelves are ideal for making use of every square inch of space while keeping things tucked away when not in use.
Most kitchens have pot drawers, utensil drawers, and cutlery drawers. However, with custom drawer dividers, you can section off each area entirely so that everything has its place. Because these are all contained within closed drawers, the sections won’t be visible from outside, but will ensure that drawers are visually neat and aesthetic when opened.
Corner Cabinet Solutions
Corner cabinets can sometimes feel like oversized squares of wasted space. The solution comes in two forms. First, consider L-shaped pullouts that create an organized storage solution that utilizes all of the available space in the corner while also providing easy access. The second option is a lazy susan insert optimized for corner storage. The spinning design will allow you to keep even more items in one spot, simply rotating to store things closer to the front or further back in the cabinet.
