Savvy Storage Solutions for Oak Kitchens
The beauty of designing your own kitchen with components from Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets is that you can make the most of every inch of available space, rather than picking a prescribed design that may not really suit your home.
Our wide variety of base, wall, full-height, corner and specialist cabinets can be combined to create a kitchen that is not only well made, but also features plenty of storage space. If you want to know more about savvy storage solutions for oak kitchens, do have a read of the following handy tips:
Don’t Forget Walls
In small kitchens, it is particularly important to never waste valuable wall space. Our wide choice of wooden wall cabinets allows you to use every inch of your kitchen walls for storing dinnerware, food and any other items you’d rather keep out of sight.
Of course, if you would prefer to show off your selection of fine china, our glazed cabinet frontals can provide kitchen visitors with a peek at your pottery through either frosted or tinted glass.
Our slim bridging wall cabinets are perfect for maximising storage space above appliances and can either be left open, or fitted with solid oak frontals. Bifold frontals are another great space-saving alternative to standard doors, and are perfect for narrow kitchens, as they lift up vertically rather than swinging out horizontally.
Slim Cabinet Choices
If you have ample space, you have the choice of our base cabinets (with options up to 1200mm wide), but for those of you looking to fill the tighter spaces in a compact kitchen, our cabinets are available in slim widths of just 150mm or 300mm.
Our solid oak wine racks are also available in the same widths, but feature either 5 or 10 cubby holes which perfectly fit wine bottles, or can also be used as handy alternative storage.
Accessible Wirework Storage
Corner cabinets often get overlooked in kitchens, with an unfortunate amount of space simply left to waste as the depths of a corner cabinet can remain almost unreachable.
Our magic basket corner solution wirework allows you to reclaim this unused cabinet space and turn it into easily accessible storage, whilst our corner carousel wirework is ideal for making the most of L-shaped corner cabinets.
Our selection of kitchen wirework includes a variety of storage solutions, including full-height larders, pull-out baskets and 3-tier spice racks; all of which feature soft-close mechanisms and can be installed without great expertise.
Double-Duty Kitchen Islands
A kitchen island need not only be a food preparation space, it can also add huge amounts of additional cabinet storage space to your kitchen.
Consider omitting doors from the cabinets at one end of your kitchen island; this ‘open’ look will create a spacious display and provide speedy access to pots, pans or even cookery books. Each of our cabinets is provided with a single shelf as standard, but you can order extra shelves from our cabinet accessories page, should you wish.
Alternatively, a mounting a rack above your kitchen island from which to hang pots, pans and even utensils will reclaim even more storage space.
If floor space is a premium, then our kitchen waste bins can be mounted into a 500mm wide cabinet to keep your kitchen waste out of sight and reduce the clutter.
