When planning your dream kitchen it’s important to go beyond the door style, wood, and finish.  Don’t forget to consider what goes inside the cabinetry!

Top Five Storage Solutions Every Kitchen Must Have

1.Trash and Recycling Pull-Out Cabinet

Every kitchen can benefit from a dedicated trash and recycling cabinet. One of my personal favorite features for this cabinet is the inclusion of a Touch Latch mechanism (with Soft Close) which comes as a standard with all of Dura Supreme’s Base Recycling Centers (BRCs). With a nudge from the knee, the cabinet will automatically open without having to touch the cabinet hardware. This provides a hands-free solution for those times when your hands are filled with wet vegetable scraps or meat wrappers. Add even more functionality with Servo-drive so that the cabinet electronically opens entirely with a tap of the knee.

2. Organized Silverware and Utensil Storage

Everyone has silverware and kitchen utensils, and when stored in drawers, the addition of drawer partitions or cutlery dividers make organization easy and efficient.

3. Dedicated Spice Storage

Whether you prefer to locate your spices in a wall cabinet or a base, Dura Supreme offers multiple options for spice storage.  From door-mounted racks, drawer inserts, or pull-outs, there is a solution for every chef. Including a dedicated space to store your spice collection will help make food prep a breeze.

4. Convenient Roll-Out Storage

Base and Tall cabinets provide lots of storage, but sometimes accessing the back of the cabinet can be a challenge.  Roll-out shelves, with full extension guides and soft close, are available in multiple heights from flat to 8”.  Roll-outs offer customizable and convenient accessibility to the entire cabinet.

5. Corner Storage

Many kitchens have a corner or two and making the most out of the awkward space can be a challenge. Dura Supreme offers multiple options to make those corners function as valuable storage space.  Turntables in a wall or base spin with ease. Gliding trays or swiveling shelves allow easy access.  Corner storage made easy!
