From bread bins to spice racks, kitchen storage traditionally included a multitude of containers that sat directly on your worktop.
However, as families have moved towards living in their kitchens as opposed to simply cooking in them, they require the space to be multifunctional, and demand more from their storage.
Worktop-mounted cupboards that sit on the worktop and run the full height of the kitchen are what are known as worktop storage today, and they offer a practical and stylish storage choice.
The glass-fronted wall cabinets in this kitchen act like a dresser, increasing the amount of space available for storage – perfect to show off your collection of crockery, cookbooks and glassware. Worktop mounted cabinets will also hide small electrical appliances, such as food mixers and toasters, which not only makes the room cosier but gives an overall cleaner finish.
In kitchens that are particularly tight on space or that have awkward angles, try a bi-fold door that allows full and easy access even from one side, and is a neat space in which to store a laptop, calendar and a pin board for all the school notes and invitations.
