Traditional Storage in Wood has its Beauty

Wood Storage is so much more appealing and charming than any other material as in plastic or wire racks. Wood has its warmth, its natural color that ages with time, its natural quality of being earth friendly and non-allergenic. Wood is versatile, cupboards can stand the weights of heavy products and stays in kitchens for years.

Simple and plain these cupboard houses a lot of items from floor to ceiling. Come to think about it - having one of these in your kitchen can solve a lot of problems for storage. With heavy items on the base drawers such as bags of rice, flour, sugar etc can ensure that you can easily get to them when supplies in your bottles run low.

As you plan your storage cupboard make sure that daily use items are kept at hip to chin level so you can get to it easily. Popular items like soup cans, pasta, pickles, spices, salt and other regular use items need to be easily accessible. Keeping them where you can easily see and reach out for makes your kitchen work so much more sartisfying.

Planning what goes where - divide your cupboard into square or rectangular sections either short or tall in height. Throw in couple drawers in case you have certain things that cannot stand. Tuck away occasional use items in the topmost shelves and everyday used linen and mits into baskets on the floor for easy pull-out-and-use!
