This isn’t a new addition to the kitchen, but it comes with a lot of advantages. It offers you space to prepare the food, space to store the pans and pots and not to mention that you can also have a trash can or a recycle bin. The drawers make it possible for you to have a place for everything and keep the island neat.
In case you would like to create the feeling that you have a lot of space and to use it optimally, you may want to consider having some open shelves. As an example, you could have some shelves near the fridge. This is just great to store the items that you often need, along with the microwave and the wine cooler. Having a wine cooler is useful so that you will have more space in the fridge.
Usually people think of horizontal shelves, but in case you don’t have a lot of space, and you need to store different items, such as baking pans, it is alright to have some vertical shelves. This way you can save some space and still have a shelf for the most important items.
It is a good idea to have storage for the knives. Have a knife drawer and it is even better if you add a cutting board on top of it. This is perfect to use when you like to chop something fast, and you don’t want to use another board.
Drawer for spices
When you are cooking it is annoying to keep leaving the pot to get the spices that you need. This is why it is good to have a drawer with all the spices that you might need right near the counter. This way you will have everything at your hand and you can be sure that the spices will be fresh every time you have to use them.
As you can see there are a lot of ideas you can use in order to maximize the storage space in the kitchen.
