When it comes to their kitchen interior storage, today’s consumers want ‘more and order’ – more space to store items and more orderly designs so they can find what they need, when they need it.
With kitchens continuing to sport clean and integrated styling, plentiful storage is a must. However, with fewer wall cabinets, designers need to get creative with interior fittings to ensure their clients will be able to enjoy maximum storage space and minimal clutter.
Customization continues to trend, with designers creating flexible storage designs that work for the way their clients use those spaces.
Below are some of the hottest trends in interior fittings right now.
–Pull outs, pull downs, spice racks and drawer organizers are increasingly in demand at all price points, allowing homeowners to maximize every available inch of storage space.
–Purpose-driven storage is on the rise, with dedicated areas for everything from charging stations and small appliances to customized utensils storage and narrow drawers for cookie sheets.
–Pull-downs are seeing increased interest to make upper cabinet contents more readily accessible without the need for a step stool.
–Drawers continue to gain ground, and full-extension drawers are popular for their ability to provide greater access – both visually and physically – to drawer interiors.
–While interiors may not be immediately visible, consumers desire high-quality materials and finishes that will hold up to daily use and look stylish doing it.
–Improved LED lighting options allow users to enjoy better visual access to cabinet interiors, also driving the trend to more stylish interiors that range from warm wood to the anthracite grey that’s trending so strongly in Europe right now.
