5 Smart Kitchen Storage Ideas

By Cahil Design Build

Your kitchen is at the heart of your home design—an area you spend a great deal of time in and that is often seen by your guests. But making it a room you’re proud to show off isn’t always as simple as choosing the most elegant materials and styles. You also have to make sure that any clutter is hidden away—and that’s often easier said than done. From pots and pans to spices, there are so many items to keep track of. You want them to be accessible without detracting from the visual appeal of your kitchen, making your cabinetry decisions critical to both the functionality and aesthetic of the room design.

We’re here to help! The experts at Cahill Design Build have come up with some of our favorite kitchen storage ideas to help our Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C. clients make decisions we know work.


Our Top Kitchen Storage Ideas

When coming up with kitchen storage ideas for your home, we recommend choosing a mix of different types of kitchen cabinets to make the space visually appealing. We also advise our clients to think about what types of items you’ll need storage space for so you can choose designs that maximize efficiency. That being said, here are some of our favorite kitchen storage ideas:

  1. Custom pantry. Pantries tend to be some of the most popular kitchen storage solutions because they’re incredibly easy to keep organized. Your pantry can include drawers in different sizes and design schemes and can even contain integrated appliances. Plus, everything is laid out in one easy-to-access space so you can see it all at once. If you don’t have space for a complete pantry, a pull-out pantry with spice racks and more may be a convenient alternative.
  2. Corner drawers. With corner drawers, you can make the most of all your space, including those awkward corners. They also tend to be deeper than your standard cabinet drawers, providing even more room for your pots, pans, and other dishes.
  3. Utensil drawers. This is one of the smartest kitchen storage ideas and a practical way to store and organize utensils. Utensil drawers can be designed in different ways with inserts or built-in drawers that allow your utensils to be stored horizontally or vertically and with other similar utensils.
  4. Kitchen islands. There are multiple kitchen storage ideas that can be used within an island. The design can include a wine rack or refrigerator and drawers of varying sizes, including the utensil drawers mentioned above. Plus, your kitchen island can also serve as home to quality countertops and food preparation space, seating, and your sink and faucet.
  5. Microwave drawers. This is a great space saver, allowing you to keep your microwave below your countertops and at a much more convenient height.
