Making the most of Storage Space

Maximising storage space is one of the most important factors we consider when designing your new kitchen. Whether you have a galley kitchen or large open plan room, plenty of storage for food, crockery, utensils and all important kitchen gadgets is essential.

If there’s room, a kitchen island adds so much more than an extra work surface. It can include a sink, hob, fridge, wine rack, as well as that essential cabinet space.

A built in pantry/larder provides an extra surface to prepare food. It can also provide additional shelving on the inside of the doors for storing, spices, condiments and anything else you need to hand.

Pull outs in corner units or deep cabinets provide ease of access and maximise those hard to reach depths of your kitchen cabinets. Our slideshow below shows you some of the options our customers enjoy in their own kitchens.

Personalising your kitchen

We all have different tastes and although kitchen designs follow current trends, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a design that reflects your own needs and lifestyle. Adding personal touches to your kitchen can make all the difference, and that’s why it’s so important for us to learn your likes and dislikes at our first meeting, before we begin planning your new kitchen. Every kitchen we create for our customers, whether it’s a contemporary or classic space, is designed to reflect their personality and enhance daily life.

The layout of each kitchen is naturally influenced by the amount of space available. Islands are popular and can work as both storage areas and a place to eat. You can also build in extra sinks or a hob if desired.

More and more customers like to incorporate a seating area into their kitchens, so that when family and friends gather they can relax together while meals are prepared. At home entertaining has become increasingly popular, so we can incorporate bespoke drinks cabinets or a wine fridge into your dream kitchen.

Colour is also a great way to give your kitchen some personality. Whether you prefer bold colours on doors and walls or pastel tones, with smaller splashes of colour, it’s the perfect way to make your kitchen individual and a part of your home that you enjoy spending time in.

You’ll see lots of individual designs for our customers here on our website. Why not pop in to one of our showrooms to see our latest displays. You can also make an appointment with one of our designers for a free consultation to discuss ideas and begin planning your ideal kitchen.

How to maximise storage space

Enough storage space is one of the most important factors to consider when designing your kitchen. It’s so easy to put everything ‘on the side’ and this can lead to your kitchen looking untidy. There’s also the question of where to store cookware and utensils, appliances and food.

Built-in Kitchen Units

When it comes to making the most of your kitchen’s space, the easiest solution is built-in kitchen units. This type of unit doesn’t impact on your floor space and can include kitchen units at floor level, corner units with magic corners for easy access, drawer bases and units on the walls. Pull-out larders suit contemporary kitchen designs, whilst built-in larders with drawers and spice racks lend themselves to traditional and classic kitchens.

Kitchen Islands

When space allows, a kitchen island can be a fantastic addition to your kitchen, providing extra storage space where you need it. Islands can also allow for informal dining at breakfast or a mid-week supper, without sitting at a dining table. They provide extra food preparation space and can incorporate sinks, hobs and even very handy wine coolers.

The beauty of a bespoke Earle & Ginger kitchen, is that there are no hard-and-fast rules and we will accommodate your personal taste to create a kitchen that suits your lifestyle.

Take a look at more examples of clever storage solutions we’ve used in our customers homes, or call in to your nearest Earle & Ginger showroom to see the latest available.

Add some hygge to your home this winter

Everything has its placeHygge- pronounced Hue-gah is a Danish word, the closest translation to English is ‘cosy’ or ‘warmth and comfort’. As the ‘heart of the home’, the kitchen is the perfect room to create hygge.

This trend seeks to break the stressful impact of modern day life, bringing over some well needed relaxation time and turning a house into a home. Hygge could be a hot drink at home after a busy day at the office, or warm sheets straight from the tumble dryer.

To really achieve hygge, you are looking to inspire a cosy, sanctuary that brings feelings of comfort. It is important to create a nostalgic feel with plenty of space to display family photos and personal objects that make you happy.

Create a warm atmoshpereHere are some helpful ideas for beginning the journey to a hygge lifestyle, beginning in the kitchen:

Be clutter free. Hygge promotes reusing where possible, and keeping only things that make you feel positive; subtle storage keeps a kitchen hygge and tidy. Everything has it’s place.

Natural lighting, like candle flames or fireplaces, but light from windows or even dimmable electric lighting can be just as soothing.

Warmth: comfortable seating and the opportunity to lounge or entertain friends is vital to have that homely and affectionate atmosphere. Any opportunity to add a faux fur seat cover, or a few cushions is a bonus.

Personal touches, such as photographs and loved objects to decorate.

Typical hygge décor remains clean and subtle in tone, no harsh colours, although many choose to place colourful spring flowers around a room in winter. Keep kitchens from looking cold by adding different shades and muted tones.

Food and drink: usually warm… soup, hot chocolate, even cake- whatever brings that feeling, although home baked is always best!

We hope we’ve inspired you to embrace a ‘hygge life’.
