Cool storage ideas - as you save more space in the kitchen

Until recently, I was obsessed with the idea of ​​having a lot of storage space in the kitchen. Let's face the truth: most of us lack space there.

This is certainly not the place where we can unpack and exhibit a plethora of decorations to create a mysterious look.

Actually, the objects that we store here are the decoration of the room.

Correct: The dishes and shelves are the most significant items in our kitchen space.

So we should design these in the most stylish way.

There is something special about the well-designed look in the well-organized kitchen. Metal grids, colored canisters and industrial pieces can be combined in the sense of a usable area, which at the same time looks modern and slim.

This look is in today's article. We present both baskets full of fruit, as well as large shelves.

Options for the storage of fruits and vegetables

First, it's about beautiful options for food and drinks, which we like to eat.

Below you can see the two-tier basket from Crate & barrel

When I relocated to my new place of residence, I was desperately looking for a basket in which I would like to stow my products.

After I moved in, I found out the following: It is practically not that everything is sorted stored. And here are ideas like this basket to help: he has the look of a vintage basket, but it rests practically on the kitchen counter. Here you have space for the fruits and for the special vegetables such as onions and garlic.

Now let's talk about canisters made of glass? Do you also find that the clean order of ingredients in the kitchen motivates you to cook? I am quite of that opinion.

These glass vessels are in production since 1940

They are a product of Crate & Barrel. With those you can see exactly what is in it and I find that very convenient. Who wants to lose time cooking while guessing where what stands?

What do you think of the Williams-Sonoma glass canisters in the picture below?

These are closed by the wonderful, feather-light metal ceilings. They have a look suitable for bistros and small restaurants and can give your kitchen a more professional appearance.

The wide openings facilitate the removal of the ingredients

Do you also long for more color in your neutral kitchen? How about red or orange, or something in the middle as in the picture here? These sparkling jars of cookies are just fabulous, do not you think?

They are a product of the company West Elm

The hermetic blankets ensure the freshness of the products in these. The lacquered surface brings the pieces to shine.

You can also introduce the organization in the fridge! This is a fact overlooked by many people. Especially the owners of old models with a lack of storage space will appreciate this idea. We offer buckets, organizers and bowls from Crate & Barrel.

These liquid and ribbed pieces give the refrigerator a modular style

The liquids also need their own place in the kitchen. Look for some stylish bottles that will serve this purpose.

How do you find the glass bottles and the wood closers from West Elm. They include beautifully designed buckets and chic wooden spheres. A wonderful solution, if you do not want to compromise with the good appearance in this regard.

Moreover, one can proudly exhibit this work on the shelf

Now it's about the wine ...

Do you also have difficulty finding good shelves for the wine? In fact, we often find it difficult to stow the items in the desired places. The reason is the different sizes.

That's why the option like CB2 is great.

The cubist structure with the industrial look makes for a stylish effect with its antique zinc covering. In addition, the entire solution is super practical.

Each piece can be connected to a different rack

Shelves and kitchen equipment

Now it's about larger storage items that can hold many kitchen items. For example, I would like to show you this Enclume traditional oval dish rack from Williams-Sonoma. This will be purchased from hammered stainless steel or copper-covered ones. So you can choose exactly the right look for your kitchen.

The metal grids made of heavy metal give the whole a solid, many problems enduring construction

Why do not you add some light to the design? Here we see a pottery rack with hanging lighting of the company Pottery Barn. This includes nickel coverage.

And look at the ribbed hanging lamps below! The construction thus becomes both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Wonderful, right?

This solution is also wonderful for the people who love the Bistrolook

From the ceiling to the floor. Sometimes we need a bit more room in the corner or in the pantry. That's why the piece with the four drawers Crate & Barrel so popular. You can purchase additional drawer covers if you do not want the ribbed style.

The castors also add to the stability

Another great option for expanding the storage space in your room is the use of portable work surfaces such as on the kitchen island. Some have additional storage space below.

In the picture below we can see the metal top counter and bar of the company West Elm

In this case, the baskets were collected there.

The company Restoration Hardware brings many industrial shelving solutions to the market. Here we are dealing with a construction of reused wood and steel.

It was made of pine wood with unprocessed surface

To do this, one took industrial steel of high quality. The earthy elements meet modernity here!

A slightly maritime style beautifies this maritime shelving system here. This is another work of the company Restoration Hardware. According to the designers, they were inspired to this work by the form tubes on the end walls of the large ships.

Bring this shelf to the wall and fill it with many different products
