Trending drawer appliances for modern kitchens
More and more in modern kitchens, we’re seeing innovative ideas and solutions for saving and creating unique spaces. When working with a finite amount of space in a kitchen, it makes sense to try to optimise that space as much as possible.
Kitchen drawer cabinet appliances mean you can make the most of the space you have, hugely reducing the wasted space you’d have with just a cabinet. Here’s a little more about drawer cabinets and their many uses, and a look at what is popular right now for kitchen drawers.
Kitchen drawer cabinet ideas
With stacked drawers, a single large drawer opens to reveal a hidden, smaller slimline drawer stacked within. This is a great way to optimise space that you’d otherwise lose out on. The smaller drawer can be used for cutlery, plates or spaces, and the larger drawer beneath is a great place to store appliances, large pots and pans or cooking equipment.
Hybrid drawer cabinets
One option is to use regular cabinet fronts with full-length doors that open to reveal pull-out drawers or shelves. Externally, the drawers will look like cabinets – perfect for achieving a sleek, cohesive look in your kitchen – but you can enjoy the additional space and convenience of drawers. This can be a useful way to store smaller appliances like toasters, blenders and slow cookers when you don’t have a lot of countertop space.
Integrated appliances with drawer cabinets
Large appliances break up the flow of a kitchen and are often not the most aesthetically pleasing. If you want to hide the appliances within your kitchen, like a dishwasher or washing machine, an appliance drawer cabinet is perfect. Cleverly disguising your appliances, an appliance drawer is made in the same colour and style as your existing cabinetry and drawers, offering a consistent finish.
Seamless kitchens have been a big trend for a while now, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Concealed cupboard and drawer designs without visible handles create a completely streamlined finish, perfect for achieving a sleek, unbusy atmosphere in a kitchen.
Pan storage drawer
Pan and pot cabinets might just be a thing of the past. More and more people are now instead opting for a deep drawer to store their pans and appliances. It means you can store pans at waist height and spend less time rummaging about through high or low cabinets, making preparing food more convenient.
A space-efficient way to store cutlery, plates or even papers and work equipment, slimline drawers help you make the most of your kitchen space. A slimline drawer means you can use the full height of the available space and ultimately store more in your kitchen. Our Tekform Slimline drawer boxes are sleek, space efficient and durable.
Often called ‘toe kick drawers’ as many available options can be opened with a tap of your foot, the under-cabinet drawer is the perfect way to make the most of the often-unused bit of space between your lower cabinets and the floor. At around 4 inches high, these drawers are great for additional storage for things like baking trays, additional plates and tea towels.
Thin spice rack drawer
If you have a thin space between cabinets, make the most of it with a skinny vertical drawer that pulls out to reveal shelving for spices. Ideal for smaller kitchens that don’t have the worktop or cupboard space for a traditional spice rack, this is a great way to optimise space. And, the drawer system makes it easy to get to all your spices – even those stored right at the back.
Soft close for a quality finish
No matter how you choose to make use of the drawers and cabinets within a kitchen, quality closing mechanisms and hinges offer the perfect finishing touch. Soft close drawer runners make drawer appliances smooth and efficient, with a quiet ‘SoftTouch’ landing and a sleek concealed finish.
