Imagine impressing your guests with a stunning, functional kitchen while enjoying a stress-free Christmas dinner. Sound enticing? Here’s your step-by-step guide to make it happen:
Countdown to a New Kitchen Wonderland
Picture this: two weeks before Christmas, your dream kitchen is installed, and ready to shine. But before that, your bespoke German kitchen takes about 5-6 weeks from order to delivery – at ColeRoberts, our final order date to ensure your new kitchen is ready for your Christmas dinner is October 20th 2023. Yes, that’s the time it takes to craft perfection. And before placing your order, you’ll want to allow some time for your design vision to blossom. Now is the moment to reach out to reputable kitchen experts like us, ensuring your Christmas dream becomes a reality!
Open Kitchen Storage
Open kitchen storage such as open cabinet shelving, plate racks, wine racks, or hanging rails are examples of visible storage. These allow for easy access to frequently used items such as cookbooks, dinner plates or cookware. Open storage is ideal for displaying decorative pieces within your kitchen. It also offers an easy means for introducing colour and personal character into your design. Whether you want to include any open storage is a matter of personal preference and the kind of look and environment you want for your kitchen.
Innovative & Hidden Kitchen Storage
Many hidden storage options are built into the cabinetry to make use of otherwise unused space. For example, plinth drawers make effective use of the area beneath your cabinetry. Other examples include internal drawer organisers, pop up sockets or extractor hood cupboards with built in spice racks. The Le Mans corner unit is another great invention, designed to maximise storage potential in kitchen corners; two generous trays sit one above the other and make full use of the cupboard’s depth. On opening, each shelf slides smoothly and silently outwards to present the entire cupboard contents, whilst bringing everything into easy reach of you and the worktop prep space above. This means:
- you have more storage space
- finding what you need is effortless
- it’s easier to lift heavy items
- you can keep your cupboard organised without forgetting what’s in there.
When finished, the soft close system allows each shelf to retract fully and silently back into the cupboard’s depth.
Kitchen Larder Units
Kitchen larder units are designed to store dry foods such as pasta, cereal, and tinned goods. This means they are usually positioned in close proximity of your worktops for easy access, loading and unloading. Larder units are available in a range of sizes to suit requirement. This includes larder units for both base and tall units. Most have shelf or wire basket options which are fixed to the door and so open out as you pull the door open. Some models even have a swing out option too, letting you double their capacity. The benefits of larder units include practicality, functionality and accessibility.
Kitchen Pull Out Bin Systems
A crucial element within any kitchen design is the kitchen bin, with careful thought required for how much bin capacity is needed as well as where it should be located. Integrated beneath your kitchen worktop, kitchen pull out bin systems are another great storage solution. These eliminate the need for a freestanding bin which can take up space or spoil your kitchen’s chic aesthetic. Pull out bins are available in different door width and capacity options, and have optional dividers for easy recycling. Many also have close-over lids to conceal any waste smells.
Kitchen Drawer Organisers
Smaller kitchen storage solutions can save space and provide an organised and accessible place for your contents that is easy to keep tidy. An example of this is secret drawers; these are slim-line internal drawers which reside within larger pan drawers, helpfully positioned above your pots, pans, plates etc. These keep your cutlery and kitchenware neatly stored and organised, with everything you need in plain sight on opening a drawer. Cutlery inserts are available in a range of material and colour options; such as plastic, or a Beech or Walnut wood. Drawer mats or plate holders are further drawer insert options that will keep the contents of your kitchen drawers neatly in place on opening.
