Make your kitchen even more stylish and functional by storing dishes where you can see and access them easily. These out-of-the-box ideas will help get you started.
If you are storing your family's precious silver, consider a nested approach. Here, a drawer has been outfitted with a divided pullout tray. This way the silverware remains protected from scratches, and when the drawer is open, it's easy to admire the delicate artisanship of each piece.
Within Easy Reach
Deep pullout drawers ensure that the right serving pieces, linens, and flatware are always within arm's reach. This drawer includes a modified pegboard approach that uses oversize pegs to keep dishes from sliding and chipping.
Here's a tip: Corral small items like napkins and table linens in small baskets to keep shelves clutter-free.
Dishes on Display
A hutch offers a straightforward way to show off dish collections. Switch out dishware as the seasons or your decorating tastes change throughout the year. Create a pleasing backdrop for pretty dishware by updating an old hutch with a fresh coat of stain or paint.
Here's a tip: Arrange items by height -- standing platters and serving dishes in the back, bowls and pitchers in the front -- to utilize every inch of space.
Up, Up, and Away
Out of cabinet space for large serving pieces? Look up. This simple shelf solves the dilemma of storing odd-shape items, such as gravy boats and pitchers, while also displaying dishware that's just too pretty to tuck away.
