In today’s Kitchen, the balance of hidden and open storage space is essential to creating a relaxed but tidy kitchen.This way, favourite pieces can be kept on display and practical items hidden away, so that the room never appears cluttered. For a spacious kitchen with ample storage, follow these Five simple but stylish ideas:
Using glazed storage solutions like these free standing glazed cabinets provides storage and display areas, having a contrast between the hidden and concealed doors. It is important to keep the contents of the glass cabinet fairly tidy, maybe use curtains against the glass if you are not for perfection!
Create a comfortable area in a kitchen with a Shabby Chic Storage Bench like the one above that has extra storage underneath. If the kitchen leads into the garden, it will make a great space for footwear or gardening tools.
For an informal look, combine fitted cabinets with free standing pieces to create an individual effect. Maybe even pop painted furniture with wooden units to create a mixture of looks and stop it from looking too formal.Or how about a statement piece like this Island Unit, very practical and also beautiful.
A recessed cupboard as shown in the example above is a clever way to save space in a kitchen. To continue the streamlined look, hang long ‘floating’ shelves, one either side, with concealed fixings and arrange a few decorative elements to soften the look of the clean-lined cabinets and shelves and add interest.
A walk-in larder like the one above is a great choice if you have the space or can convert an area or a large cupboard. Clear airtight Kilner jars are ideal for storing foods such as pasta, rice and flour in an organised way and allow you to discard any unsightly or half opened packets.
