5 Must-have Storage Solutions For Your New Kitchen

Posted by KraftMaid Marketing on

When designing a new kitchen, choosing the right storage solutions is the difference between a good kitchen and a well-designed, highly functional kitchen you’ll never want to leave. While finished cabinets and shiny new appliances may be the beauty, storage is the brawn that will ultimately simplify your life, whether you use your kitchen for entertaining, family meals, a home office or all the above. However, you may not know that there are some storage solutions that must be part of your design plan from the get-go; in other words, these features require factory installation and therefore can’t be added on later. With lack of storage space being the number one design regret, we’re sharing the top five solutions you’ll need to consider when designing a new kitchen.

1. BLIND CORNER SWING-OUTS

Blind corner swing-outs maximize space and provide easy access to odds and ends such as plastic or glass containers, pitchers and more.

2. MULTI-STORAGE PANTRY

With ample room and easy access to canned and dry goods, it’s easy to see why your kitchen could benefit from this multi-storage pantry. By adding this feature, you automatically gain pantry-like storage and save valuable counter space without sacrificing accessibility.

3. WALL FILLER PULLOUT

This small space is big on storage and designed to fit between your cabinet doors. Fill it with herbs and spices for easy access while you cook.

4. TRAY DIVIDERS

These vertical dividers can be used in any base or wall cabinet to neatly separate cookie sheets, baking trays, platters and more.

5. RECYCLING CENTER

Keep your trash and recycling neatly organized with four separate bins that are easily hidden behind your cabinet doors.
