Stylish design, clever solutions and different types of storage that fit the lifestyle of a household are key to a kitchen that works well. While the list of options available can be overwhelming, we’ve rounded up some nice examples of different styles of kitchen storage that can help guide your choices.

Closed storage

One of the easiest options for kitchen storage is the standard closed cabin or cupboard.  Whether your style tastes tend to be traditional, or if they swing to the far modern end of the spectrum, a multitude of closed storage options exists. Many homeowners favor this type because it’s easy to keep things neat and tidy looking by just keeping the cabinet doors closed an ad minimum of items on the counters. This kitchen design by Ar-Tre mainly features closed storage with just one open storage area for the wood to fuel the fireplace above.

d35a7d18f4b4487d1e983aefa49f448d Enhance Kitchen Storage With Different Styling OptionsThe single open storage section with wood serves as a design element, softening the look.

A trend in the past couple of years has been the “hidden kitchen” which not only has an abundance of closed storage, but also handle-less appliances to maintain a sleek and modern look. This Bauformat kitchen is entirely enclosed except for a couple of open units so that you can keep your most-used appliances at hand — like that coffeemaker you can’t live without every morning!

07f9f8e56d9509a0d35f6699db46749a Enhance Kitchen Storage With Different Styling OptionsThe lack of handles and knobs, along with a large number of cabinets, makes for a very modern feel.

It’s not just standard cupboards behind those doors. Today’s closed storage can be customized to include entire workstations that are just as stylish when opened. This hidden unit by Elam includes appliances, shelving and a countertop. The large doors that hide the unit keep the room minimalist and sleek when you’re not working in the space. It’s a great example of using doors to hide the working parts of your kitchen and the areas of storage that would otherwise break up the desired style of the room.

Glass-Front Storage

Not everyone likes the look of a fully closed up kitchen and the large expanse of wood or other material that is characteristic of that style. By incorporating some glass-fronted kitchen storage, it’s possible to add display space as well as another design element into the kitchen. The look can be modern or retro and the glass can be clear or frosted, depending upon the desired result. Scavolini’s design uses some old-style glass cabinets to dress up the space while incorporating kitchen storage. The light frosting of the glass is transparent enough to generally see what’s inside, without revealing every little detail.

Kitchen storage can also double as a display space if the glass is clear. This unit from Arclinea has interior lights that allow the contents to be showcased and not just stored away. It is perfect for drawing attention to family china, special serving pieces or other items that are sentimental or important. While most people would not want this type of kitchen storage throughout for reasons of practicality, it is a lovely accent element for a kitchen.

Those who like the look of glass doors but don’t want to show off everything inside the cabinets can opt for glass that has a heavier frost pattern. Febal Casa has a kitchen idea that combines frosted glass with shelving that has LED lights along the edges. Not only does this illuminate the inside of the cabinets, but it also turns the lighted edges into a design element. The dose of soft ambient light adds to the mood of the kitchen while the storage units provide ample storage for anything you want to stash away.

Mixed storage styles

As always, mixing and matching types of kitchen storage is also an option. Today’s kitchen designs can include storage that is closed, some that is open, along with added specialized units, all in combinations that suit the way you live. This Arrex kitchen mixes finishes with all three types of storage. The open units at the end serve as display space, the center wine rack is a special feature that some homeowners will love, and the cabinets include standard doors as well as frosted glass. It’s the best of all worlds in a casual and functional space that includes multiple types of kitchen storage.

Even in a kitchen that has mostly closed-door kitchen storage, a small open unit can add extra punch if it is done in an accent color, as in this kitchen design by Martini. The accent unit includes open sections for display, space for a few wine bottles, and a few drawers to keep small items handy. Here, the cabinet next to the accent unit is open to show the ample storage space.

Although this design by Deca features mainly open kitchen storage, it also has closed cabinets on the left to hide away kitchen necessities that might not be so as attractive. The open shelving features different styles, including all wood shelves, some all metal, and others a mix of both. This arrangement and assortment of kitchen storage options will appeal to those looking for a hardworking kitchen with a professional, commercial vibe.

Not only is the interior of each shelf illuminated, the top half is transparent, while the bottom half is opaque, which helps mask — or at least mute — the appearance of whatever you are storing inside. It’s a good option if you need to please more than one person with the type of storage being chosen.

Open Shelving Kitchen Storage

Open shelving for kitchen storage has been popular for quite some time. While it’s a very versatile option, it is definitely not suitable for everyone. This style lets you store and display all the same time, but take note: Your dishes and. storage containers need to be worthy of being on display 24/7. Mismatched, chipped dishes or a jumble of storage containers will never look good on open shelving. However, if you are fussy about the items you display, or if you collect items that you can include, open shelving like this style from Spagnol is very attractive and helps make a kitchen feel comfortable.

Similarly, this open shelving from Asko, which includes their dishwasher, shows how you can store and display your dishes at the same time. An added bonus is that the dishwasher is right there, close at hand.

Customizable open shelf kitchen storage can also be used to accent your space. Yes, it provides a place to store plants or pots of fresh herbs, but it can also serve as a home for attractive containers of often used staples like pasta or beans. In this way, the items being stored come a design accessory. Spagnol’s small wall shelves have the added design feature of being a cube, which adds interest and helps make sure the items don’t fall off the shelves.

Snaidero offers a similar style of open kitchen storage shelving, but it is more linear and includes an options for a solid shelf on the top of the cube as well. The longer segments have a more modern feel and could be used to display and store wide variety of items. Again, accents such as the plant pots make a big difference with open shelving. It has to be considered a design element as much as a storage spot.

dd5e92478ad55a391e0d499f79b05b74 Enhance Kitchen Storage With Different Styling OptionsThese shelves easily could be combined with other kitchen storage elements.

At the fully rustic end of the spectrum, Gatto offers a style of kitchen storage that is quite different. The casual, country vibe is played out with barn-style sliding doors that have a wire fence front, enhancing the glass shelves behind. The center of the unit features pull-out bins, reminiscent of crates in an old country store. These can be home to dry goods, bulk foodstuffs or just about anything else. The units are open on top, but not everything inside the crates will be visible.

With room for glasses, cups, teas, coffee and bottled beverages, this is a great unit whether you’re entertaining or just making beverages for the family.

Kitchen islands are eminently useful and they can also be home to extra storage its designed properly. New technology is also making them more functional with the addition of specialized units.

The end of an island is the ideal spot for some display or storage space. While it could be enclosed to make a cabinet, open space here is a handy place to display cookbooks or often used dishes that are attractive. It is a wonderful way of adding interest to an island that is otherwise just a rectangular block.

Conversely, Elam’s design for this island males display space a central component. The large open-end shelf and interior lighted shelf that is offset from the middle are eye-catching design elements that break up the visual bulk of the island. These can be for functional storage or purely display space, whichever you choose.
