Cabinet door shelving
For larder-style storage on a smaller scale, add spice shelves to the inside of cabinet doors to utilise every inch of your kitchen. A compact way of storing spices and herbs, narrow depth shelves ensure that nothing gets lost and also lend themselves to quick access when cooking.
Showcasing crockery, pans or utensils on wall hangings is an ideal way of creating a lived-in look that remains ordered and functional. Create a scheme with matching copper pots and pans to feature on-trend materials in your kitchen design.
Alongside acting as a statement design feature on your walls, open displays make it easy to find kitchenware when cooking, as well as freeing up precious cabinet space.
Add in personal features to every corner of your kitchen with integrated shelving between cupboards or on the ends of your fitted cabinets. Shelves will help to break up the appearance of large fitted cabinets, allowing space for trinkets that will complete the feel of your home.
For a customisable storage solution, display larger items such as jugs or bowls that would otherwise take up valuable space, alongside decorative objects and cookery books.
Freestanding storage units
While many kitchen cabinets are fitted, freestanding units can provide additional storage that can also compliment a streamlined design. Freestanding glass cabinets will add light to a space, as well as giving you additional storage in all corners of your kitchen.
Displaying crockery on top of and inside glass cabinets also leaves more space inside main kitchen cabinets for less attractive kitchenware, adding to the design element of your space. While opting for glass provides light and texture, dark cabinets can also be used to make a statement in a smaller way.
