A custom pipe and wooden shelf system sits in front of the left and right window that flank the sink, perfect for storing glasses and plates. Designer Tiffany Brooks says this storage system allowed the huge window area to remain open. “You have a direct view to your driveway, your garage area and all your neighbors on the street in front of the house.”
The kitchen island includes a custom space for the microwave. Using a mix of black and stainless steel finishes on the appliances in the kitchen unifies the space and keeps the color scheme feeling clean and modern.
To add open storage above the resurfaced bathtub, a shelf was made from a plank of pine, cut to size and finished with ebony stain. The shelf holds shampoo and beauty products, while an integrated black steel pipe keeps towels hung neatly below.
Make use of otherwise wasted vertical space by creating extra storage on the back of a closet, pantry, or mudroom door. Over-the-door hooks or systems can be customized with baskets and racks of different sizes.
Kay notes that the pantry doors allow the homeowners to hide large appliances, along with dishware and kitchen gadgets. The pantry's minimalist hardware from Mathew Quinn maintains the kitchen's clean lines. Keeping trays obove the dual Wolf ovens is another clever storage solution.
Another innovative storage solution in this Mid-Century modern kitchen is the baseboard drawers that were installed below the cabinets. These drawers provide storage for those awkward kitchen necessities, getting them out of the way so that the rest of the kitchen cabinets stay organized, neat and accessible.
Making the most of the vertical space in this closet, sleek black shelves hold purses and accessories. Racks underneath are perfect for stowing shoes, and four separate bars provide plenty of storage for hanging clothes.
