When it comes to designing stylish kitchen storage ideas there are so many different styles you can choose from that it can sometimes be overwhelming. One important design element to think about is if you want open shelving, cabinets or a mix of both.
Open Shelving:Open up your kitchen and use every inch to your advantage. Open shelving in place of upper closed cabinets will make your kitchen look and feel lighter and airier. What’s great about open shelving is you can put your go-to items that you use on a daily basis on them. It makes those items more accessible.
Cabinets (Closed & Glass):If your one of those people that wants to hide everything - the clutter or even your dishes, then the closed cabinet option is perfect for you. You’ll be able to have a kitchen that appears to be clean and tidy but in case you have a mess it’s easy to hide.As for glass front cabinets presentation really matters and neatness does count. Arrange your dishes in a way that looks beautiful – stack bowls, lean platters against the wall, and add in decorative elements. This will add a little character into your glass cabinets. Make sure you vary the texture and presentation. Nothing is more dull than glass cabinets filled with only glassware.
Industrial Shelving:Construct a pantry from a pair of metal storage units. This one is painted blue with individual metal bins taking the place of drawers; labels placed on the shelves help identify the bins' contents. White enamelware, a wire basket of potatoes, and an entire shelf of mineral water break up the geometric pattern of the bins.
Hanging Pot Rack:A simple wrought-iron rack is perfect for oversized pots and pans and you can keep them within reach of the kitchen’s main workspace. By hanging these larger pots and pans from the ceiling you’ll free up cabinet space in a smaller kitchen.
Display Rack:In a small kitchen, both storage and design needs can be met at the same time with careful placement of various wall racks in the kitchen. This adds a little décor while saving on storage space.
Still can’t decide which option you love the most? Start a Pinterest board for kitchens and start pinning kitchens. Then go back in a few weeks or a month to see what you pinned the most of. This will give you a better understanding of what you like.
