Think about your current cabinet setup—do you know where all your ingredients are stored? Are the items you use most (sugar, flour, spices, etc.) within reach and well laid out? Can you always find the appliances you’re looking for?
In a gourmet kitchen, adequate cabinet organization and storage are vital. Because all the counter space is dedicated to food preparation, you won’t want to keep your mixer or spice racks out in the open. Instead, identify ways you can transform your cabinets into the perfect storage solution.
Installations like a Base Cabinet Appliance Lift Shelf can be fitted to your cabinet to both hold your appliances and raise them to counter height when you need to use them.
The empty space between cupboards can be utilized for ingredient or appliance storage through the addition of a pull-out organizer or a blind-corner optimizer. Lazy Susans are also a great way to supplement the shelf space in your cabinets and allow you to quickly grab the right tool.
And, of course, no gourmet kitchen design is complete without a spice rack organizer. Consider installing an in-between cabinet pull-out spice organizer near your oven for optimal storing and ease of access.
