Kitchen Storage in Motion
These clever designs place everything at your fingertips
Cabinets are the building blocks of your kitchen; where you place them determines the layout of your space. Whether you love to cook or simply need a spot to store your snacks between Seamless meals, planning storage to meet your needs is a smart move. From semi-custom to fully customized solutions, these five Sweeten homeowners took cabinet design to the next level.
The tall, skinny drawer for storing cutting boards in Ainsley and Simon’s custom kitchen island is easily accessible at an arm’s length away for meal prep or setting out cheese and crackers for guests.
Inspired by Martha Stewart, this couple added a toe-kick drawer beneath the lower line of custom cabinets in their Brooklyn kitchen, increasing the overall amount of storage space without altering the floor plan.
Among the many storage solutions in Kate and Saul’s kitchen, the couple installed Lazy Susan turntables within the corner cabinet to store large bowls and serving trays.
Melissa and Blake love to cook and entertain friends so these pull-out drawers nestled within the semi-custom cabinet are perfect for their collection of pots and pans.
When an open-plan design shrunk the amount of available cabinet space, this homeowner tucked a pantry into a spot alongside the fridge with a floor-to-ceiling pull-out rack, taking advantage of every inch.
