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

Where nothing conventional will work, be creative. Personalizing the kitchen for avid readers meant using this empty space for newspaper and magazine storage.

I really like the corner cabinet idea to store all of the condiment bottles and jars neatly. The pull-out racking on the door of the cabinet makes it much easier to retrieve the condiments or the cereals as per the picture sample. It is all about arrangement and organizing to make your things tidy and not an eyesore.

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.
