When it comes to organizing the kitchen, often we feel like we are forced to choose between organization and convenience: either everything is tucked away out of sight, or it is sitting out in open sight, ready and available for use. This organization strategy leads to either long processes to get at our most-used things, like baking goods, cocktails, or coffee; or we find ourselves looking at the same messes all day. What if you could have both the convenience and aesthetics you desire? Modern kitchens are taking advantage of concealed spaces that keep your most-used items both close at hand and hidden from sight.
Dura Supreme Cabinetry points out that homeowners are increasingly finding ways to strike the balance: “A functional trend we are seeing grow rapidly is the use of concealed, organized storage to help create clutter-free environments with all your frequently used items close at hand.”
One design option that works in most kitchens is to include a larder. Dura Supreme designers say that, while historically, a larder was used to store and preserve foods before refrigeration, it’s been repurposed as a stand-alone cabinet. “They’re designed to store the majority of your goods but small enough to keep things organized while taking up a minimal amount of valuable space,” says Dura Supreme.
Another way to conceal storage on a larger scale, if your space allows, is to include a walk-through pantry that is hidden behind a cabinet door. Dura Supreme notes: “Designed to coordinate within adjacent tall cabinetry—this pantry door seamlessly blends into the kitchen.”
