Storage

Generous banks of units have real visual appeal, creating clean lines and increasing the sense of space in the kitchen.

The secret to a minimalist modern kitchen is ample storage. From crockery and cutlery to food and kitchen gadgets, it’s easy to let the clutter creep in, so hide everything away behind streamlined glossy doors for a stylish sense of calm. Fortunately there are plenty of practical storage solutions that go beyond the standard base and wall units. Choose deep drawers with dividers that are perfect for pans and make rummaging in the back of a cupboard a thing of the past, or install a pull-out larder or corner unit that makes use of space that is difficult to access. Limit the amount of open storage for a cleaner look and think of the worktop as a place for displaying some carefully chosen items rather than extra storage space.

Generous banks of units have real visual appeal, creating clean lines and increasing the sense of space in the kitchen. Stacked half-height units offer flexibility while integrated door handles mean there’s no interruption to the glossy effect. Clever internal layout options make it easier to instill order to a tower unit, with built-in storage boxes.

Every home owner will have their own particular storage needs. Consider banquette seating with concealed toy storage in its base, reserve a cool spot for a wine rack, or set aside an area for compartmental bins to make recycling easier. The most obvious way to maximise your storage space is to invest in floor-to-ceiling storage. Plinth drawers allow you to tuck clutter away at floor level, but unless you’re particularly tall, the highest cupboards will only be suitable for rarely used items. When in doubt, allow for extra storage in your kitchen and enjoy the satisfaction of having a place for absolutely everything.
