Innovative fixes for kitchen-storage dilemmas


by Don Najita

1. Laundry Area

A washer, a laundry sink, and cleaning supplies are concealed inside the closet. On the outside of the cabinet, shallow shelves keep commonly used cooking supplies close at hand.

2. Corner Cabinet

Blind-corner cabinets are difficult to arrange for useful storage. Where a lazy Susan won’t do the trick, you can use Häfele’s sliding corner-cabinet hardware. When the door is opened, the mechanism pulls the contents into view.

3. Pantry Bins

Stainless-steel restaurant-buffet pans are ideal for produce and other pantry items. The bins are easy to remove and clean. Accuride’s two-way slides allow access from both sides of the prep counter.

4. Newspaper Nook

I especially like the one proposed for the loundry area. This would be a perfect solution taking into consideration during any basement design as well.

Practical, trendy and easy to implement.
