Kitchen Design Storage Inspiration (Worth Bookmarking)

Recently, I've been helping clients design a kitchen for their new home. Given that food is essential to them, the kitchen and dining area are vital hubs for their family activities. With a large family moving in, maximizing storage space has become crucial.

Here, I've compiled some storage inspiration ideas for kitchen design that I recommend:

  1. Utilizing the Range Hood Area: Often overlooked, this space can actually accommodate many items.

  2. Slim Cabinets Behind the Fridge: Utilize this space effectively for additional storage.

  3. Organizing Spice Jars: Given the multitude of spices used in Chinese cooking, how they are arranged for easy access is important.

  4. Large Drawers under the Sink: Great for optimizing space that is commonly overlooked.

  5. Open Cabinet Designs: Example in Image 6, with clever shelving inside cabinet doors, which is currently popular.

  6. Sponge Storage under the Sink: Surprisingly practical and quirky, but it needs regular cleaning.

  7. Creative Use of Window-Sink Area: This space can also be utilized effectively for storage.

  8. Standard Cabinet Dimensions: Here's a basic guide to organizing cabinet space effectively.

Finally, the last image shows the flow from the fridge to the sink, cutting board, and stove, organized in a triangle layout. For example, using the U-shape kitchen design approach, start by taking ingredients from the fridge, then wash, cut, and cook at the stove.
