How Can I Plan The Perfect Kitchen Storage?

A kitchen is one of the most used rooms in a home and often has to fulfil the most requirements. From family dining to washing up, the kitchen has to be adaptable for work, eating and relaxing. For all of this to happen smoothly your kitchen storage is one of the most important factors when designing your new space. We've brought together some of the best kitchen storage planning advice for you below.

Before anything else, determine your needs

Before choosing your storage think about how you will use your kitchen and what you need from it. Do you cook a lot and have a lot of cooking ingredients and utensils? Or perhaps you use your kitchen for entertaining guests and hosting dinner parties so therefore will require more of a social area than storage around the island. Take a look at the storage you currently have and decide what you can't live without and anything extra you require.

Make use of every space
