Store It in (Your) Style

07.13.2011

Where and how to store all your kitchen gear is a basic part of a kitchen remodel, and an area of design that’s also highly personal.

We have all experienced individual kitchen style. You walk into a friend’s kitchen and open the cupboard where the drinking glasses “should be.” They are not there.  Or, you look for a teaspoon in the “logical” drawer and find hand towels or spices instead. The point is that each of us has our own definition of a beautifully organized and convenient kitchen.

And, thanks to today’s wide range of cabinetry and accessory options, each person’s concept of perfect kitchen storage can easily become reality.

Behind Closed Drawers
Who says that dinnerware has to reside in a cabinet? Deep and wide pullout drawers can be a fashionable and efficient alternative.

Within the drawers, wood inserts keep cutlery and utensils in order. Neff of Chicago’s carved inserts eliminate corners where dust and food particles can collect.

In Plain Sight
You favor a clean counter, but certain utensils and staples have to be within easy reach. You’ll want to consider such off-the-counter solutions as the Midway Rail System’s bread holder, utensil racks, or hanging canisters for staples like flour, sugar and pasta.

Wide Open Spaces
Open shelving above the counter, below a cooking surface or even running floor to ceiling is another popular option. Store and display everything from pots and pans to mixing bowls to a prized china tea set.

Tucked Away
Doors that pull out, pull down or lift up can conceal just about anything you need out of sight but close at hand.  Slim pullout cabinets can hold the family keys, or spices and condiments. Pullout bins will keep kitchen waste and recycling near the food prep area. An on-counter appliance garage with a door that swings out or rolls up houses the mixer, blender or coffee maker when they’re not in use.

There is a right way to store just about anything in your kitchen, and that way is whatever is going to work best for you.
