At Sustainable Kitchens we have a strong appreciation for innovation. Innovation in both our commitment to sustainability and our approach to designing unique and expertly crafted cabinetry.
Look to The Larder
Larder cupboards, or a pantry can be a key component when it comes to maximising storage in your kitchen. These stunning pieces of cabinetry offer vast amounts of space for items ranging from spices, tins, jars, boxes and bottles to other cooking essentials.
Theres even room to hide small white goods such as a microwaves and kitchen mixers behind closed doors to keep countertops clear and clutter-free. Whether theres room for a single larder or double, the internal configurations can be unique to each home.
Dedicated larder storage can be modified to include wine coolers, spice racks, knifers drawers and bottle racks. If you decide a pantry is a must for your kitchen our designers will work closely with you to understand your cooking and eating habits, allowing us to design a larder that fits with your own personal way of living.
utilise the island
With the addition of kitchen islands dating back as far as the 1800’s, these showpieces often described as ‘kitchens within a kitchen’ are evolving with the times. Our designers at Sustainable Kitchens are commonly asked for a kitchen island to house ovens, griddles, hobs, dishwashers and more. Other popular requests include wine fridge and teaplan plates, allowing the island to become a vital piece of your kitchen storage puzzle.
Create a cooking table
As highlighted previously, the island can be deployed for a range of uses. From attending to guests and socialising with friends or family, this highlights the growing need for a dedicated space to prepare food. Because of this, the demand for smaller, mini-islands to be included in our kitchens has increased so that the historically separate zones for cooking and socialising have now become intertwined.
Bear in mind the breakfast bar
The breakfast bar is one of the more stylish storage solutions for your kitchen. Providing easy access to smaller appliances such as coffee machines and toasters, these help families with busy timetables ensure they have all their breakfast making provisions within reach. Choosing a breakfast station as part of your kitchen design helps bring a sense of calm and order during an often turbulent period of the day.
Storage at the centre of your design
When planning the design of a kitchen, ensure storage solutions remain at the heart of all your decision making. Whilst the choice of timber, paint and door handles are all vital characteristics of a kitchen, the overall look and feel of your space can be negatively impacted by poor storage planning.
It’s important to keep in mind a number of factors. What size is your kitchen? Who will be using this space? Is this area open to the living room? Contemplating the storage possibilities of other spaces that your home might offer could impact the overall design of your kitchen. Alcoves, under stair areas and chimney breasts are all room features that open up a plethora of opportunities when bespoke cabinetry is involved.
By ensuring storage remains at the heart of your kitchen design, the natural flow and direction of your space will benefit enormously and ensure visitors can navigate throughout your home with ease.
