There's always so much you need to store in a kitchen: food, crockery, containers, utensils, appliances, cleaning products... tea towels! After a recent kitchen clear out, I decided to revisit my Pinterest kitchen board for some quirky reminders of just how clever kitchen designs can be to accommodate the modern house chef. Before I share my favourites, here's my personal, tried and tested not-so-cutting edge Quick Trick for kitchen storage:
Bear with me - while it's simple, it's SO effective and super quick. Simply buy a clear plastic box (keep the lid for a rainy day) and use it to put all your hob essentials in such as pepper, salt, oil, worcester sauce, silicone pan handle, etc. We purchased the one above from HomeSense. It'll not only keep everything neat and contained but they're all easily accessible. I found trays didn't work - I kept knocking the bottles over. This is a much better solution, which I also use in the fridge (lunch box from IKEA):
Containers also keep bottles etc from marking surfaces. Just make sure to give them a rinse out every couple of weeks.
MY TOP 5 DREAM KITCHEN STORAGE IDEAS:
1. PICTURE RAILS FOR COOKERY BOOKS:
2. CRATE EXPECTATIONS: PERFECT FOR FRUIT & VEG
3. KNIFE DRAWER: GREAT WORKsPACE SAVER
4. PAN PERFECTION: NO DESCRIPTION NECESSARY!
5. SPACE-SAVING SHELVES: GREAT FOR CROCKERY
