Smart Storage within your Dream Kitchen

Storage within a handmade kitchen is key to the design to make it a success. There are many storage solutions to choose from as every part of the kitchen is truly bespoke to the end-user.

There are some loving designs that we love to provide you with easily accessible storage, below we take a look at these.

A place for the crockery

A crockery cupboard or drawer can serve in different ways from storing glassware to tableware and serving ware. This convenient spot can be placed in any part of the kitchen design.

Crockery drawers make the perfect solution in our Mapesbury project. These are situated amongst the island on a handleless style. They are neatly joined together side by side to give you the large width drawer you require for plates and other crockery but with the symmetrical and orderly layout.

We are in love with this kitchen due to the traditional style mouldings and contemporary handleless doors, creating a truly bespoke design exactly what our client requested from us.

The London project has a full-height crockery storage cupboard that houses not only dinnerware but glasses too. It sits to the left of the cooking area, making it a convenient place and easily accessible.

Designated cupboard/drawer for pots and pans

As we know pots and pans are used so frequently in a kitchen and come as a special consideration when planning the overall design. The location is key keeping the everyday ones nearby and the less frequently used stored in further away cupboards.

What we love about this kitchen in Stock, Essex is not only the selection of Sub-Zero wolf appliances but these drawers that bring everything out to you. No need to bend down or rummage around for what you need, it’s all visible inside the solid Oak drawer boxes, sitting on quality Grass runners which are soft-close and full extension.⠀

Our client filled these drawers with their stunning collection of pots and pans that match perfectly with the award-winning appliances by Sub-Zero Wolf.

On the other end of the island in the Mapesbury project, handleless drawers are filled with our client’s collection of pots and pans. Neatly stacked and instantly accessible.

Breakfast pantry

The busiest meal of the day is breakfast. During the week our lives are hectic so a breakfast cupboard provides the perfect space for the toaster, coffee machine and other breakfast essentials that are instantly accessible. We have designed and built many of these throughout our projects and they have proven to be popular.

This breakfast bar that’s located in the corner of this stunning kitchen in Stock, Essex becomes a handy spot for the breakfast items. Bespoke bi-fold doors allow it to be instantly accessible but hidden out of view when not in use.

A breakfast and day pantry in one sitting either side of the American fridge freezer in the Whetstone project! Both cupboards are fitted out with solid wooden shelves that are at the right height to store different sized items.

Day pantry

A day pantry is on many kitchen wishlists these days. They are used every day and are one of the most requested items for a Nicholas Bridger handmade kitchen. They are a classic design, designed in a way to suit your needs, adding shelving, countertop space and drawers to hide away all the things you don’t want on show. Keep it stocked up with all your cooking ingredients and organise it in a nice and easy way that’s beneficial to all the family.

This stand-alone day pantry offers a capacious area for all the dry ingredients needed for everyday life as well as extra for that upcoming delicious dish you want to try. It has been made-to-measure beneath the triangular window in the Hatfield Broad Oak project.

A royal navy blue day pantry lies amongst the L-shaped layout and classic shaker furniture in this Clayhall, London project. It comes with a cold shelf that has been filled with storage baskets and solid wooden spice racks behind each of the doors.

Handmade bar/drinks cabinet

In recent times we are entertaining more at home and using the kitchen as our hub of the home which it is known for. A drinks cabinet or a handmade bar is an essential when entertaining at home, let it provide you with a space to store glassware and prepare drinks before and after dinner.

This drinks cabinet in our Billericay project is everything you could wish for in one place. With an area to prepare drinks before and after dinner on the perfect countertop, a sleek wine cooler sitting below to keep the drinks cool and plenty of cupboard space to store glassware and other drinks at room temperature.

The ultimate handmade bar stands out in this hub of the home in Bishop’s Stortford. Complete with glass shelving and glass cabinet doors it allows our client to see their glassware collection selecting that margarita glass at ease. On the bottom of the base more cupboards and drawers are provided to house bar essentials and spirits and mixers.
