If there’s one thing many of us feel we need, it’s more kitchen storage space. It seems like there’s always some new doodad to buy for the kitchen. And putting it all somewhere can get to be a challenge. But that’s why they invented fold-away kitchen storage. These design elements are defined by how they can fold or roll in some way to create more storage without visibly taking up more space. It’s practically like having a storage area bigger on the inside than the outside. Below are some ideas for making the most of fold-away storage in the kitchen.
Finding the space in one room for twice as much furniture and storage is one of the most daunting tasks when designing a shared room. This is where your resourcefulness and editing eye need to kick into high gear. Less is definitely more in a shared bedroom, as is multifunctional and shared design. As a baseline, selecting streamlined furniture is essential to keep the room feeling as spacious as possible and allow for storage and playing. If your kids are old enough, bunk beds are always an excellent choice. Whether L-shaped or vertical, a bunk bed is an efficient use of space and oftentimes has built-in storage underneath.
As two prominent leaders in their respective fields, a partnership between West Elm and Steelcase makes sense. Through it, they hope to help the modern workplace make some sense, too. No more lifeless cubicles and austere seas of desks. By working together, these two partners can lean on Steelcase’s knowledge of building quality office spaces while incorporating West Elm’s residential feel. The result is workplaces that feel less like prisons and more like homes.
I expect integrated ”drainboards” to be a hot trend this year too. They would likely be smaller in size than this dramatic replica Blanco showed us at a Living Kitchen exhibit in Cologne last year. Most of the fixtures producer at the show featured united drainboards and a few have started to offer them in the U.S. market.
Once seen mostly in copper also white with newer apron-front sink offerings are hot in low-maintenance also contemporary stainless steel. Also expect to find more shallow apron-front sinks that are suitable for remodeling purposes. This means they would fit into a standard sink base cabinet with its false front removed as well as could be used when you upgrade to new countertops.
