As Newton kitchen renovation experts, we know that there’s one thing almost every family wants: more storage space. Whether you need more place to stow groceries or an area for the kids’ devices to go when it’s time to eat, making sure there’s a place for everything can be a design challenge.
Here are some storage solutions that have been very popular here in the Newton area. These ideas were drawn from a variety of local kitchen renovation projects, including a kitchen addition.
Adding Storage Under the Stairs. If your kitchen features stairs, or stairs are immediately adjacent to your kitchen, talk to your Newton kitchen designer about built-in storage options. This can take the form of drawers for linens and other mealtime necessities, or, in the case of a taller staircase, a cabinet for mops, vacuums and other cleaning supplies. Making use of this traditionally wasted space can make storing awkwardly shaped items easier.
The Pantry. The pantry is hardly a new kitchen storage solution – here in the Newton area, many of the older homes were built with pantries. We’ve been adding pantries to homes as part of Newton kitchen remodels for years. They just make sense – whether it’s a smaller, closet-style pantry for dry goods and appliances or a larger room that includes space for freezers or refrigerators and more.
Intelligent cabinetry. If you’re planning your Newton kitchen remodel you’ve likely discovered the many different cabinetry features and configurations that are available now. They’re an easy way to spend a ton of money – but will you actually use them all? One of the advantages of working with an experienced Newton kitchen designer is they can walk you through all of the storage options and help you make smart choices based on your lifestyle and project budget.
