Alternative Storage Ideas

The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the home and a modern kitchen is usually filled with plenty of clutter, which is why making sure your storage designs are working for your precise needs is very important.

Alternative storage ideas

Everyone knows about your standard kitchen cabinets, but there are alternatives that are not only practical, but look great too.

Pull-out units provide excellent hidden storage room and have a bit of wow factor when they are revealed to your dinner guests!

This kind of storage can be used to hold kitchen items such as pots and pans, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables, so having this unit close to the cooker will be the most efficient place for it in all likelihood.

The corners of a kitchen are often wasted space but having corner kitchen units can utilise this hidden area.

A simple pull-out draw at the corner of kitchen fittings can be a great place in which to keep cooking items.

Using frosted glass as doors for kitchen cabinets will give the room a very modern look. Not only will the glass hide cluttered shelves, but the reflective surface will bounce light around the room, giving the area a pleasingly bright look.

Frosted glass will also give a sense of depth, therefore making the room look larger than it actually is, which is a great trick for smaller kitchens.

An area that is often ignored, but can add extra storage space to your kitchen, is the back of the door.

There are many different types of rack that can be fixed to your kitchen door, which is an ideal place in which to keep herbs and spices.

The most important thing with storage, whether you go for a traditional or alternative option, is getting the balance right between having too many storage units that are not used efficiently, and simply not having enough.
