Top 3 Kitchen Remodeling Trends for Organization in 2017

  1. End-of-island Storage: Previously overlooked and unused in kitchen remodels, this prime location is now being taken of advantage of for both display and organization. One popular idea is to install drawers with glass fronts and false backs in order to show interesting food items such as pasta while hiding more utilitarian items. If you need more storage for larger items, island shelves will draw the eye to these pieces, instead of the stools. Another fresh idea is to position a small beverage refrigerator at the end of the island for guests to help themselves!
  2. Pantry Roll-outs: Shelves are the standard we have become accustomed to in pantries but adding drawers is a long-overdue storage solution that finally caught on in 2017. No more digging behind big boxes & cans to access what you need! Larders, common in the U.K., are also gaining more popularity here in the states. In this set-up, double doors with spice racks open to a more shallow interior with shelving on top and drawers or bins underneath. To maximize efficiency, a pullout work surface can be added.
  3. Narrow Pull-outs: Customizing cabinetry to store kitchen items in areas where they are most used makes a lot of sense and became a more frequent request for remodels this year. Designing narrow slide-outs on either side of the range to keep oils and utensils is very convenient when cooking. And a drawer under the sink that accommodates plumbing fixtures is a handy way to store cleaning bottles and implements.
