Adding functionality is typically the #1 priority for most homeowners when renovating their kitchen. This means an improved workflow, expanded prep space, and above all, more useful storage solutions.
Improving the storage space in your kitchen is more than just a matter of adding cupboards and drawers. What really matters is what lies within. In today’s most efficiently designed kitchens, storage accessories are the key to wrangling pantry items, cookware, small appliances, cleaning supplies, and all the things people tend to store in the kitchen.
Here are some of the storage solutions Canadian homeowners are embracing in an effort to conserve space and keep clutter at bay.
Vertical storage is among the best innovations to enter Canadian kitchens in a very long time. Narrow, yet deep nooks were once left as wasted space and dust bunny collectors, but no longer. People are filling them with skinny pull out cupboards that resides beside refrigerators or between wider cabinets. Whether counter height, or floor-to-ceiling, these pull-out drawers have become the perfect location for pantry essentials and spices.
Toe Kick Drawers
Kitchens with smaller footprints may need to make use of every available nook and cranny…including the toe kick space beneath the cabinets. Toe kick drawers can provide a smart storage solution for flat, non-food items like baking sheets and platters, coupons and stationery, j cloths and other cleaning supplies.
