Having a beautifully styled kitchen is all well and good, but if there's no practical storage features, it's certain to be missing some functionality.
Your kitchen will be home to a large number of items, including large oven dishes, crockery and cooking utensils, and you need to be able to find space to store them all.
To give you a helping hand, Optiplan Kitchens have come up with a list of storage solutions that you can incorporate - and they're set to help you maintain a clutter free space.
1. Deep drawers
Do you find yourself straining to reach plates at the back of the cupboard? Well, that can become a thing of the past by opting for deep-set drawers. Helping you to store and locate items with ease, you can further maximise what you have by giving a two-tiered drawer system a go. A deep wide pull-out will work well for your pots and pans, whilst the bespoke drawer inserts will ensure cutlery and utensils get stored in an efficient manner.
2. The larder
Are you completely re-designing the kitchen? Then why not make the room for a bespoke larder? It's one of 2019's key trends, as it provides realms of storage for those unsightly tins and condiments, while it also gives you a handy place for storing those old kitchen gadgets you no longer use or want out. On top of this, everything gets hidden behind some beautifully designed doors.
3. Work in the wine rack
Having a built-in wine rack can seamlessly give you some sleek sophistication. It ensures your wine is presented neatly, and also means you get to show-off your collection. You could even consider a wine cooler if white wine is more to your taste.
4. Shelving displays
A great way to display your favourite belongings will be an island. You can pop items and accessories in the shelving that comes with the design, and in the process, instantly add some charm to your kitchen.
5. Incorporate corner storage
If you believe the corners of your room could cause some awkward challenges, it's time to think again, as they actually give you a load of hidden space. You can opt for some swing-out drawers as these 'magic corners' can display the entire cupboard's contents, so they become easy to locate.
