Savvy Storage Solutions for Solid Wood Kitchens
In many bustling kitchens, storage space is at a premium, and we can often find that cupboards overflow and infrequently-used condiments are tricky to lay a hand on. To help our customers make the most of limited storage space and maintain a calm and well-organised kitchen, we supply a number of storage solutions that make the perfect finishing touches for solid wood kitchens.
Our popular wire baskets can be integrated into wooden kitchens in a number of ways. For base units, we supply a set of two pull-out drawers, which make it far easier to access items that would otherwise be a struggle to find at the back of the cabinet. We also provide three-tier herb racks that can be easily attached to the inside of your cabinet, in order to maximise the storage space within.
For corner cabinets that many find difficult to reach into, we offer a number of solutions! If you’re looking for an addition to an L-shaped cupboard, our Corner Carousel includes two tiers that rotate, making the contents of your unit far more accessible. Alternatively, for a corner solution cabinet, our Magic Basket Pull-Out has a clever configuration of four baskets that helps maximise the potential of previously unused space. This option also comes with the opportunity for left- or right-handed opening, according to the design of your kitchen.
Another superb wirework solution for limited space is a soft close pull-out space saver, either as a 150mm height or full height option. These items are ideal for making the most of narrow spaces, packing maximum storage potential into minimal floor space. A broader alternative is the ¾ height larder, which can be fitted inside a full height cabinet whilst still leaving space for extra shelving to be installed above.
Wicker Storage Baskets
For a traditional kitchen, wicker storage baskets are a beautiful alternative to shelving, evoking the look of a classic countryside residence. Available for either 500mm or 600mm wide cabinets, our wicker baskets are made from naturally-grown European white willow and hand-woven into a sturdy and aesthetic storage solution. Easily installed within smooth oak surrounds, this basketry offers ample room for fresh produce (or anything else you might like to store) and is a splendid complement to solid oak cabinets.
Solid Wood Cutlery Tray Inserts
Keep cutlery drawers perfectly organised with a solid wood cutlery tray insert. These carefully crafted organiser trays have been meticulously engraved with cutlery symbols to denote each section, and are available in a variety of timbers, including oak, beech, American walnut and iroko. Our fabrication team are also able to produce cutlery trays from other timbers upon request.
Our wooden cutlery trays are supplied in a range of sizes to suit a variety of drawer widths, from 310mm (the ideal size for a 400mm drawer) up to 910mm (for a 1000mm drawer).
Each item is supplied fully sanded for you to finish to your preference, but we always recommend oiling with Rustins Danish Oil: this treatment creates a stunning finish whilst protecting the timber.
Oak Plate Racks
A convenient alternative to storing commonly used crockery in a cabinet, our solid oak plate racks keep items close to hand and make for a decorative kitchen feature, too. A fantastic complement to oak cabinetry, these racks come with dimensions of 1200 x 342mm – which hold up to 24 plates – and can be easily cut to fit any kitchen cabinets, without the need for specialist equipment. To ensure plates are held securely, we suggest fitting a plate rack at the front and back of the shelf.
These attractive plate racks can be provided in a finish to suit any kitchen, as they are available lacquered, painted (in any Farrow & Ball colour of your choice) or sanded (for you to add a finish of your choosing).
