Kitchen storage ideas that don't compensate on style

When designing a new kitchen, one of the most important things to consider is employing effective storage space. However, an ample amount of storage in a kitchen doesn’t always equate to style.

This is where you need to consider the most intelligent use of space without utilising designs that look garish. A kitchen needs to have the right balance of shelves, worktops and drawers but knitting these elements together can sometimes undermine a stylish layout. Caesarstone worktops can be easily implemented into your kitchen layout to enhance whatever storage solution you may desire.

Apart from the obvious storage compartments – the ubiquitous cutlery top drawer, work surfaces and pull-out shelves for pots and pans, a modern kitchen needs to cater for your array of accessories and gadgets.

Nowadays, there seems to be more on the market than ever before! In days gone by, a standard kitchen would contain the common microwave spot, a place for the toaster and so on, but kitchens have evolved so much with demands as placed upon by the modern homeowner.

Not only are there popcorn machines, bread makers and soda fountains, there’s also new and wacky gadgets nowadays. Tools such as the toaster have now been joined by the egg fryer, an array of knife holders in all shapes and sizes, sandwich makers, deep fat fryers and George Foreman grills.

Storing these tools can often prove a problem.  If you are stuck for space, Diresco worktops can be fitted and it is handy to have in-built compartments for storage within kitchen islands or breakfast bars.

Some popular kitchen storage concepts include open shelving whereby the look is pared back and items are on display. This has become very stylish recently, with many budget conscious householders removing their original kitchen cupboard doors to allow for a new open ambience in the kitchen.

If you want to add some flair to your kitchen, then Quarella worktops could be the right option for you. 37 shades and textures make this a highly sought-after product and we have seen how colours such as pinks and greens can uplift any kitchen.
