3 Storage Ideas for Your Kitchen

It seems like there just is never enough space in the kitchen, doesn’t it? It’s a busy place—from cooking to entertaining friends to helping the kids with homework. If there’s one thing you wish you had more of in your kitchen, it’s probably storage space.

Here in the Washington, DC area, many homes are on the smaller side—and it can be frustrating to work (and enjoy yourself) in a space that is cluttered because there isn’t enough storage. But there are many different solutions to help remedy this, including custom options!

In one DC kitchen, we added storage space by creating customized paneled pilasters with decorative corbels. Solutions like this are perfect for making everyday items easily accessible—and they can enhance the overall room design.


Custom Storage Cubbies

Cubbies aren’t just for the kids’ playroom—they can work really well in the kitchen too. In a Capitol Hill townhouse kitchen, we added custom cubbies with a built-in personal electronic docking station above a set of cabinets. Not only does this increase storage space, but it also allows for a more modern space (more and more homeowners today are using iPods and other electronics in the kitchen).

Recessed Wall Niche

Not only can custom wall niches add architectural interest to kitchens, but they add extra storage space without taking up any room! They are typically installed above cooking ranges and can be used to hold everyday items, like salt/pepper and other spices, cooking utensils, etc.
