While most may agree that appliances are necessary components to every kitchen, it’s no secret that they swallow up valuable counter space. Your mixers and blenders are meant to be functional tools and not decorative statements! Still, some of us wind up with nowhere else to store our appliances other than the kitchen counter. Fortunately, there are creative kitchen storage options that can increase the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen while also clearing your counter-tops of clutter. Here are a few examples:
· For your mixer:
Build a pull out tray that lifts up and out of a cupboard. Secure the mixing stand to the tray and install a locking system that will hold your mixer steady while it’s in use. When you’re finished with it, simply unlock and lower the tray and mixer to its original position.
· For your toaster, blender, and coffee maker:
Install a special cabinet that is flush with your countertop. There are a number of different cabinet door styles designed for camouflaging breakfast appliances that can lift or slide open. As you can see here, this is a very easy-to-use, special cabinet that allows easy access to kitchen utensils and food. Consider using this for your next kitchen addition.
· For your trash compactor or dishwasher:
Much like the cabinet that disguises your other appliances, the drawer-hinge cabinet is a popular choice for hiding your trash and recycling bins from the public eye.
