When you are in the middle of cooking dinner, do you open every cabinet and drawer trying to find what you need? Is your goal to have nothing on your countertops? Organization and efficiency are the most wanted features when it comes to designing or remodeling a kitchen. Here are 30 kitchen design ideas from outlets to islands to create the kitchen of your dreams.
Cabinet and Drawer Organization
Create a drawer that is set up with containers for flour, sugar and other ingredients you use frequently. Include a sticker for identifying purchase date, expiration date or any other details that are important to remember.
No more searching for the oregano. Now you have a drawer that is built to showcase your clearly labeled jars to make it easy to reach for the exact one you want. Alphabetize them for a quick search, too.
Create a niche in the kitchen island or cabinetry to slide them in and out instead of stacking them in this handy organizer.
Use a vertical holder for cutting boards that can be stored in the pantry, cabinet or counter top. If you find any space in your cabinet design that is too small for a door, try creating a slot for cookie sheets or cutting boards.
If your goal is to have nothing on your counter tops, then this drawer is the solution for you. A deep drawer with canisters for kitchen tools and a knife holder.
Stand Mixer Solution:
A baker’s dream is to have easy access to their mixer without needing to leave it on the countertop or move this heavy appliance from pantry to workspace. This lift is effortless with a bonus electrical outlet inside the cabinet.
Pots and Pans:
Keeping them organized and not scratching the interior and exterior of the cookware is the goal here.
Design a cabinet that will fit all your appliances – or just those you use frequently – that you want to store in the kitchen and not have on the counter top.
Soft close doors and pullout drawers for dishes and other items.
Display Those Cookbooks!
Plug outlet strips under the cabinet for a very clean look.
Outlets with USB ports for easy device charging
Walk-in/large pantry for food storage and small appliance storage is an organized person’s dream. If you have room, add a counter top and electrical outlets.
Produce not to be refrigerated.
Partition a small part of your pantry for brooms, vacuum and other cleaning tools.
A Pantry Cabinet
All the appliances get hidden in a minimalist or reduced clutter kitchen.
If you are lucky! One for food and one for appliances.
Place next to the sink and island.
Instant hot water faucet for tea, oatmeal or soups, for example.
Second sink in the island for prep work.
One big sink to be able to wash large pans.
Make it a piece of art in the kitchen. A design focal point.
Many design formats are available depending on your design space.
Double width to have cabinets on the back side for small appliances and storage for entertaining items. Design island so depth is comfortable for chairs to be pushed in at island.
Biggest island you can fit for workspace and entertaining. Hide plugs on sides.
