With so many things that need to be included in a kitchen, it’s understandable to want this space to be as large as possible and even part of an open floor plan. Kitchen storage is no joke. The challenge is real and the search for the perfect combination of open shelves, closed cabinets and functional layout is long and tedious. The answer is out there and in order to find you need to do some research, to see what others have done with the place and what kitchen storage solutions they found for their own homes. Perhaps the following options can offer you the necessary inspiration.
A practical kitchen pantry
Pantries are really great especially when they’re an actual part of the kitchen. They let you store a lot of things and keep them close at hand so you can easily grab them when needed and they let you organize everything using your own system. Kitchen pantries usually have a lot of drawers and shelves for storing canned goods, vegetables and other things. You can hide your pantry behind closed doors or you can keep it open.
Kitchen island storage
The kitchen island can provide quite a bit of storage. This is where you can keep the things you usually need when you’re cooking such as your favorite pots and pans, some utensils and dinnerware.
A lot of islands offer a mixture of open and closed storage compartments. You can use the shelves for the storage of things you use most often but you can also use them to display items such as a cute little planter or your collection of cookbooks.
ome islands are even simpler than that. They’re basically simple tables with a shelf underneath. You can use that shelf as a rack on which to keep your pots and pans or other large items that don’t really fit inside your cabinets.
