5. The pantry
If you have space, a modern day pantry can be an excellent solution for storing foodstuffs such as tinned and packaged foods, spices and ingredients, teas and coffees and any other dried foods and cupboard staples that don’t belong in the fridge or freezer.
Traditionally, a pantry was an extra small room near the kitchen, while these days walk-in pantries are rare. Instead, cabinet pantries, double door larders and breakfast cupboards are used to house all the kitchen essentials, perhaps even including the toaster and coffee machine, to keep your worktops clutter free.
6. The larder
A dedicated food storage solution with plenty of space that’s perfect for cooking and entertaining at home, the larder is currently experiencing something of a comeback. Customise to your heart’s content to fit the available space exactly – there are tandem larders, swing larders, slimline and pull-out larders to fit all shapes, sizes and layouts of kitchen.
Add non-slip shelving and soft close doors and, hey presto, here’s a really useful, accessible and efficient solution for your kitchen. The best bit is that larder units can hold an unbelievable amount of content. Designed to maximise storage in a single space, they keep everything organised and easy to find while hiding it all away.
7. The drawer
Finally, don’t underestimate drawer storage; it can be just as useful and important as cupboard storage. Use inserts in cutlery drawers to help keep everything organised, while deep pan drawers are much more user friendly than cupboards, especially when it comes to storing bulky saucepans and awkwardly shaped pots.
Deep drawers can also be used for plates and dinner services, using peg systems to keep different items in place. Bespoke design solutions can be a clever way to create even more space for anything from baking utensils to jars of ingredients and more.
