The foundation of a functional kitchen starts with adequate and practical storage. It’s my job and passion to brainstorm and design organized and beautiful spaces for our clients to enjoy for years to come! I have created a list of some of my favorite solutions in hopes that you too, can get the most out of your kitchen!
Regarding those deep, dark, cave-like, and unreachable corners of your cabinets: A Lazy Susan used to be the only feasible option to ease the pain. While we are still a fan of good ol’ Susan, I tend to favor the corner drawer stack. This option looks great and allows you to efficiently use every square inch of space!
The on-counter garage is a neat feature that allows a space for bulky or frequently used appliances to still have a convenient “home” while keeping it out of plain site. These “garages” can fit seamlessly into your cabinetry design with a flip-up hinge, a sliding mechanism (similar to a garage door) or bi-parting doors.
I am all for creating spaces that make life easier, and let’s be honest, more appealing to the eye. One reality of living in your home, is the sea of electrical cords near every electrical outlet. By hiding the chords hanging/laying on your counter tops, you naturally create a tidier space and a more streamlined kitchen.
One way to hide the cord-clutter is to have electrical outlets installed underneath your upper cabinets. This is a suitable choice for function but also to bypass any interruptions from your newly installed and stylish back splash!
Having a designated drawer as your charging station is also an incredible option. Simply have an outlet or two installed in the back of the drawer or the wall behind the drawer. This allows you to remove the small items taking up space on your counters. In other words, say goodbye too cord overflow!
In a time when everyone is connected and available 24/7, having your device tucked away in a drawer for a bit might be a bigger benefit than just having tidy counter tops! The inside of your cabinets are filled with endless possibilities and we’re here to make sure you are able to utilize every square inch.
