As a small family-run business, we know how important it is for our kitchens to be both practical and stylish.
Most kitchens are designed using the kitchen work triangle, which aims to build the kitchen around the primary tasks in the home; ensuring the sink, hob, and refrigerator are in close proximity for an efficient kitchen space.
However, we would argue that there is also a need to consider storage first – as this can dictate how functional and therefore, how usable, your kitchen actually is.
To maximise your new kitchen design, for a clean and organised home, we’ve outlined our top storage solutions and how we can tailor them to you and your kitchen.
The Tall Larder
In a recent poll, we found that 83% of our audience would choose a larder over a wine cabinet when designing their new kitchen. And it’s no wonder when a tall larder can add such a valuable amount of storage space to even the smallest of kitchens.
We encourage our customers to really think about what the larder will be used for and which of their household items are most important. This allows us to craft larder shelves to specific requirements such as shallow shelves for tea; taller shelves for cereals and champagne glasses, and bespoke spaces for appliances like the microwave.
These days it seems like every kitchen has an island – you only need to type the word ‘kitchen’ into Pinterest to see just how popular they are. But behind the beautifully styled magazine shots, you’ll also find a practical storage solution which timelessly fuses together functionality and style.
Your bespoke kitchen island can house flush fronted cupboards and drawers; open shelving units, and wine racks. You can even use the space above your island to hang pots and pans – making a real feature out of your unit.
Spice Racks in Cupboards
Every home needs a well-stocked spice rack and our internal cabinet solutions provide the perfect space to house them without sacrificing style.
We can design and build a cupboard to house your spice jars in the door. Or we can even craft a bespoke pull-out shelving unit – guaranteed to make life easier when cooking in your new, handmade kitchen.
Corner cupboards provide an ideal storage solution for any kitchen but are especially beneficial for U-shaped designs and small kitchens where it’s crucial that every bit of space is utilised.
If done incorrectly corner cupboards can be wasted space. But rest assured, our bespoke design and build will ensure your cupboards go right into the corner for that all important storage. We can even enhance this space further with internal storage and pullout mechanisms to increase usability with less effort.
Whichever solution you choose Jamie Knight offers a truly bespoke kitchen service; designing and building beautifully handcrafted kitchens that work for both your kitchen space and lifestyle.
