Innovative Storage Solution: X Creative Kitchen Design Ideas

These creative, appealing kitchen designs incorporate unexpected solutions to maximize the amount of storage space available, avoiding clutter and creating sleek design aesthetics where everything is in its place.

2. Hideaway Storage in a Kitchen Island

In this airy contemporary kitchen, open shelving above the stove takes the place of upper cabinets. Unlike cabinets, which would clutter the wall and take up too much depth, the shelves keep the small space open. Instead of concealing plates and cookware behind cabinet doors, they’re artfully arranged as appealing display pieces.

In this small but charming kitchen, a traditional shelving unit or upper cabinets would take up too much visual and physical space. This antique étagère provides an elegant solution, creating an interesting and compact display for books and decorative items.

4. Creative Cabinet Design

This creative cabinetry was inspired by an antique printer’s desk. It may look like nothing but drawers, but there’s more storage than meets the eye– it’s actually a clever facade for a full cabinet door. Above the cabinets, open shelving merges storage space with decorative display for pitchers, plates, and glassware.

5. A Pullout Pantry
