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 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.
