Between dishes, cooking appliances, and of course food, kitchen storage space can be a tricky task to master. While having enough space to properly store your gadgets and grub is vital to the flow of your kitchen, it is also important to consider the style of storage you want, and how that storage will tie into the aesthetic of your culinary home remodel project.
Kitchen storage comes in many versions, each with their own unique quirks. Three current trends that are increasing in popularity across the Kansas City area include:
The most popular storage option, closed cabinets give you plenty of space to store your kitchen essentials, in a classic design style. These cabinets are great for keeping your space organized and feeling clean and are easy to customize with paint and hardware. However, closed cabinets take up a lot of wall space, and can leave smaller kitchens feeling cramped.
Window Displayed Storage
Similar to closed cabinets, the window displayed storage gives your kitchen items a designated space within a boxed off area. However, instead of hiding the inhabitants of the shelving, window displayed shelving has a glass exterior in the doors which allows for all of the contents to be showcased. While uncommon, this storage type is perfect for showing off meaningful dishes and knick-knacks.
Inspired by industrial kitchens, open shelving allows for fast access to all materials, without the hassle of slamming doors. This storage option is also great for making the most out of smaller spaces since the openness helps to free up your culinary area. Ideal for modern homes, open shelving is quickly gaining traction as one of the most versatile storage options.
Gone are the days of boring kitchen storage. Swap out your predictable pantry for open shelving, or consider updating the hardware on your closed cabinets to help bring new life to your remodel. Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, so give it the attention it deserves by installing new storage solutions today.
