show and stow in the kitchen.
PUT IT AWAY
Deep drawers hide big pans and serving dishes perfectly.
Consider kickboards that open up to accommodate oversized platters, chopping boards and baking trays. Clever, huh?
If you’re planning a new kitchen, go for adjustable shelves inside your cupboards – now you can store those awkward tall vases!
A new island bench offers a work surface plus storage: sneak extra drawers and shelves into its design.
SHOW IT OFF
When you put everything behind closed doors, kitchens can appear clinical. Having some of your collectibles on show injects your personality into the space.
Corner cupboards are often difficult to access, so consider leaving them open as the perfect spot to store cookbooks.
Appliances, like stand mixers, usually look good on the bench – and who wants to lug it out every time they make a cake?
Sticking to one or two accent colours in your displays looks clean and stylish.
Bulkheads or cabinets that go up to the ceiling means no dust collecting on the top of cupboards.
Tackle the dreaded plastic container drawer and throw away lids and bases that no longer have partners. Buying one brand of containers helps to keep it tidy, as they all fit inside each other.
Magic extra storage space out of nowhere by fitting shallow shelves or racks for spices to the inside of a pantry door.
A wall of handle-free cupboards cuts clutter and looks clean-lined. A great way to store cookbooks and it makes an interesting design feature. Store utensils for kitchen prep and cooking close to where you do these tasks.
