Pretty Kitchen Storage Solutions

Good morning, and happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend and a happy Mother’s Day if you were celebrating.

Today we’re talking pretty kitchen storage solutions (i.e. hutches, buffets, open shelving, etc.).  These solutions can be used in a variety of different ways — to conceal items or to display them; to corral items that will be used and items that will not; and to further the design aesthetic that is trying to be achieved.  Because of the versatility, if you have room for one of these spaces in your kitchen — even a small one — they bring about a really custom and luxurious feel.

This china hutch doubles as a coffee station, with the built-in espresso machine.  I have mixed feelings about built-in coffee machines.  But that’s for another post.  🙂  A mix of clear glass and porcelain accessorizes this cabinetry.

 This is actually my in-laws’ kitchen.  There is a cabinet above the little countertop area for glassware that we use on a daily basis; an armoire of sorts in the corner reserved for pretty items that are just for decoration; and the center cabinet on the left-hand wall stores tons of other serving pieces and pewter that are stacked and nested.

I love the mix of dark and light in this kitchen, and especially all of the pretty storage on the right wall.  Those recessed glass-front cabinets are beautifully done.  I would imagine that the double-door cabinet on that wall is the refrigerator/freezer combo.  Stunning cabinetry there, as well.

How about this rustic two-toned kitchen and that amazing glass-front cabinet?  I love the muted, mossy green and that rich chocolate wood.

Open shelving, a couple of cabinets, and transitional finishes create a really unique and open area that was definitely designed custom for the homeowner to enhance the way that they wanted to utilize this space.  And please take a moment to sincerely appreciate that ceiling.  That’s detailed design and architecture at its finest.

I’m basically a fan of any taupe cabinetry these days, but the paneling and exposed hinges on these is particularly stunning.  Also, the paned glass — really subtle, but without it, it’s just not as good.

A nice idea for plates and other serving pieces with a theme, providing an eclectic, collected-over-time look.

And again.

I hope you have a great rest of your Monday!
