Buyers’ Guide: Kitchen Cabinets and Storage

Price Kitchens - Kitchens Storage

Organisation is key in any kitchen, whether it’s a compact kitchenette or a large farmhouse kitchen. Size matters, of course, but what matters even more is what you do with it. Put bluntly, when it comes to kitchens, you can never have enough storage.

Maximise your kitchen space with Price Kitchens’ clever storage solutions for cabinets and cupboards, using up all those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies that would otherwise sit empty and unused while freeing up precious worktop space. Give your kitchen an organised and streamlined look, with a place for everything and everything in its place. Not only will you love the way the heart of the home always looks neat and tidy, it will make your life so much easier!

Start with an assessment of how much space you currently have and what’s missing in terms of storage. Are you planning a complete kitchen redesign or are you happy to simply add storage upgrades where necessary? If the latter, make sure you take accurate internal measurements of the kitchen units you wish to fit out with better storage options.

We’ve put together a handy guide to the main types of kitchen storage solutions.

Cabinet Storage

Modern kitchen design relies on a combination of wall units, base units and full height units, but while these units are built in to make the most of the space available in the kitchen, their internal organisation may not be optimised. Think of adding:

Drawer Storage

Kitchen drawers have become more popular in recent years, especially in contemporary kitchens. Once the mainstay for cutlery, utensils and assorted bits and bobs that seem to belong nowhere in particular, drawers are now also favoured for everything from pots and pans to crockery and glasses.

Drawers have a propensity to become cluttered and messy, which makes things – small items in particular – difficult to locate. To organise your drawers, you might like to consider:

Larder Storage

In the old days, larders were used for chilling and protecting food and drink before the advent of refrigerators. These days, larder units have been reinvented and updated as useful storage solutions in the kitchen that are integrated into a built-in kitchen.

Fitted neatly into tall kitchen cupboards or units, they typically consist of a series of connected shelves or wire baskets that can be pulled out in one fluid motion. This gives full visibility and easy reach to all the stored food items while maximising space when the door is closed.

Pullout larder units offer one simple column of shelves, while tandem larders have twice the storage space – one inside the cabinet door and another one deeper inside the cupboard.

To get the best kitchen storage solution for your kitchen, you need to think about more than just the space available. Think about how you use the space – how many people are living in your home? Any children, elderly or disabled family members? What’s your lifestyle and personality? All these factors and more will influence the right kitchen design and storage options for your home.
