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  The service and product from Joanne and the team at Appleton Kitchens is simply fantastic. From the initial consultation through to installation the whole process was easy, professional and enjoyable. If there was an issue this was addressed quickly and without fuss. Joanne's attention to detail is phenomenal, measurements were taken and checked at several stages of our build so that by the time the kitchen was installed everything slotted in perfectly. The installation itself was done over a couple of days by professional, thorough trades. The kitchen looks and feels wonderful and we are delighted with it.
