One of Louise Brooks’s favorite storage ideas is a floor-to-ceiling plate rack, where platters, chargers, and pretty dishes are accessible while adding color and pattern to the room.

Chicago-based designer Mick De Giulio often incorporates countertop “garages” for small appliances in the kitchen he designs. This Chicago kitchen has nearly 10 feet of countertop storage from SieMatic cabinets, with three motorized doors that lower at the push of a button.

Coffee pot and blender are pushed behind flip-down doors when not in use.  The kitchen cleans up in minutes and appliances are out of sight, an important feature in today’s kitchens that are open to entertaining spaces.

Kitchen islands offer plenty of options for storage, including shelves for cookbooks and dishes.

Squeeze a pantry into a narrow closet or wall space at the top of basement stairs. Narrow shelves make items easy to spot.

This charming Boston-area kitchen designed by Liz Caan puts kitchenware on display in artful places: on open shelves, from hanging pot racks, and in an island by French Heritage.

A pullout pantry makes good use of narrow space. This clever pantry in a New York City kitchen designed by Robert Schwartz has a tiled front so when it is closed it looks like part of the tiled wall.
