As the saying goes, ‘beauty comes from within’ and your kitchen is no exception.

The truth is, a beautiful kitchen design can all be for nothing if it doesn’t function beautifully on the inside too.

We’ve emerged from lockdown with kitchens that have evolved into spaces that are now the hub of our homes. Where we gather to eat, work and socialise, and sometimes even to relax.

And as we push our kitchen to be far more than just an area to cook, it’s vital to utilise all of the space we have to make it work effectively.

So, as the summer holidays draw to a close, dare yourself to dream about tidier times and ponder some of our most popular kitchen storage options:

Show It Off

It’s bang on trend right now to have your shelves on show, and we love the character and interest this can add to a kitchen.

Showing off your crockery will require a bit more attention to detail when it comes to cleaning but it certainly works better when all of your plates and cups are uniform and matching.

Hide It Away 

We’re contradicting ourselves here but bear with us.

If you want a minimal look, hiding away your small kitchen appliances and clutter is the best way to achieve a streamlined look, but it doesn’t have to mean plain or boring.

You could conceal your kettle, toaster and coffee machine in a ‘breakfast station’ that can be conveniently popped away until the next morning.

Clever Kitchen Cupboards

The options are endless when it comes to kitchen cupboards.

A pull-out plate cupboard is a popular option, or a spice rack drawer insert, so that you never have to hunt down the garlic again.

Another top contender is the corner kitchen cupboard. Often an untapped space, and a big one at that, you can utilise every inch of your kitchen with some swing-out shelves.

Kitchen Island Space

If you have the space to add a kitchen island to your kitchen, you won’t regret it.

Islands can be an inconspicuous way to add a bunch of extra storage, with the use of shelf and cupboard space or by using it to house appliances and plug sockets.

Whatever your kitchen storage needs, there’s always a smart solution. So, if you want any more tips, tricks or advice, get in touch.

  • 5 star review  Joanne and team did an excellent job designing, project managing and installing our new kitchen. We knew we were in safe hands when we first met her at her fabulous show room to discuss ideas and designs. She was approachable and realistic and there was no hard sell. Joanne had put 3D designs together and clearly explained the pros and cons of each proposal. Throughout the entire process, she was dedicated to making everything perfect, making multiple visits and she also answered queries promptly. Joanne's attention to detail is exceptional! The customer service level was top notch, fantastic, we love our new kitchen and highly recommend Joanne and this company to family and friends. The whole experience was easy, and Joanne is a pleasure to deal with! Thanks again :)

  • 5 star review  Joanne from Appleton Kitchens helped us by designing an amazing kitchen with which we are delighted. She was very helpful and has unbelievable attention to detail. She was at hand to help from the moment of design to having the whole kitchen fitted. I have never seen such excellent customer service.

    thumb Manu Singhal
  • 5 star review  I don't usually write reviews however this company is worth a write up. Appleton Kitchens was recommend to me by a friend. However I did go to multiple kitchen companies to make the comparison. With regards to quality and cost there was no where else that compared. You won’t get a pushy sales pitch, any queries were answered promptly. Joanne made multiple visits to my property to ensure the measurements were spot on during the build. Again during the kitchen installation she was on site to make sure everything was there and on track. What was key for me is you get a "Service" which was exactly was I was after. I am so pleased with my kitchen!
