13 Popular Kitchen Storage Ideas and What They Cost

Here are 13 kitchen solutions to consider for your remodel or new construction — and how much they might set you back.

  1. Pullout platter storage. A handy pullout compartment in the end of a kitchen island houses large platters at arm’s reach in a divided, safe enclosure.
  2. Countertop appliance garage. A dedicated space behind closed doors is ideal for tucking away your regularly used small appliances, such as a toaster or blender, leaving your counter free of clutter and cords.
  3. Corner drawers. Full-depth corner drawers will help you get the most usage out of tricky spaces.
  4. Shallow rollout. Never let a deep drawer swallow up your holiday cookie cutters or cupcake papers again. This slim rollout hovers above another drawer, sharing the same drawer face and hardware.
  5. Rollout drawer for cleaning supplies. An easy-to-access steel rollout drawer with optional flexible magnetic organizer compartments keeps all your bottles of cleaning supplies upright and out of sight.
  6. Pullout spice rack. Storing your spices in a vertical, pullout spice rack that fits into your cabinetry will keep them organized and out of the way.
  7. End cabinet or island cookbook storage. The exposed end of a lower cabinet is a great place for sneaking in some cookbook shelf space.
  8. In-counter knife storage. If you don’t like the look of a freestanding knife block but want to keep knives close at hand, consider an in-counter knife slot.
  9. Walk-in pantry. Provided you have the room, a well-designed, custom built walk-in pantry can be built with a bevy of built-ins and pullout baskets, overhead lighting and an electrical outlet for small appliances.
  10. Pantry system. Designed for kitchens that can’t accommodate a walk-in pantry, a pantry system offers unparalleled organization within a cabinet. So you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for quickly and easily.
  11. Library ladder. Made of wood or metal, traditional or contemporary, a library ladder can blend with almost any kitchen style, giving you access to high, hard-to-reach cabinets.
  12. Backsplash storage. More than an aesthetic part of a kitchen design, a backsplash can be useful for easy-access storage of utensils, knives, cookware and dishes.
  13. Wall-mounted pegboard. If you have a small kitchen with limited cabinet space, you can transform an unused wall into an efficient storage space, thanks to a wall-mounted pegboard.
