What Houzz contributors are saying:
22. Location: Sydney, NSWDesigner: Provincial KitchensFeatures: A butler’s pantry with a ladder is a dream come true – pretty and practical, too.
When it comes to food storage, Dominique McAdam, owner of Provincial Kitchens, says slimline open shelving – between 100 and 300 millimetres wide – installed above the benchtop allows you to see everything at a glance and prevents items getting lost behind each other. Floor-to-ceiling storage will maximise the amount of space available. Put those items used infrequently up top and consider installing a ladder for access.See more stunning kitchens
Where should you start when organising your kitchen? I like the ‘Stop – Sort – Solve’ philosophy. ‘Stop’ is the hardest one for most people to allow time for, but it’s the one that will deliver the most thoughtful solution in the end. If you stop and really analyse what the challenges are and brainstorm possible solutions, you can often come up with innovative ideas. Then ‘sort’ everything out into groups, rehoming or discarding unwanted items. Lastly, ‘solve’ the challenge by putting everything back into its new home.
