Without storage cabinets, a kitchen can be cluttered. You need storage cabinets in your kitchen to keep items. The items can be kitchen utensils, plates, bottles, foods, etc. You need to choose storage cabinets that suit with the style and size of your kitchen.
If you want to give a rustic touch to your kitchen, then decorate it with a freestanding dark wood cabinet. It’s better if the wood cabinet comes as a pantry with lots of shelves and drawers. If the cabinet doors also have storage space, then it will be better. Thus, you can store more items in the cabinet. You may fill up the cabinet shelves with beverage bottles, sauce bottles, small flour sacks, cereal boxes, etc. You may even store your small kitchen appliance, like toaster, on a shelf. Then, give special label on each drawer of the wood cabinet. Use each drawer specially to store a certain item.
A freestanding wood cabinet may not be suitable for small room. If you feel that your kitchen is small, then I suggest you to install wood cabinets on a wall. Wall-mount cabinets will not take up much space, so your kitchen can still feel spacious. If necessary, you may remove the doors of the wood cabinets. Thus, the displayed items in the wood cabinets can be seen clearly. You may fill up the wood cabinets with simple decorative items, like plates, bowls, glass, cups, etc. If natural grains of the wood cabinets are still visible, then you can have more beautiful look.
A kitchen countertop usually also comes with a storage unit. The storage unit will be very helpful to prevent the kitchen from clutter. From the picture displayed, you can see a storage unit under a beige marble countertop. The storage unit has built-in drawers and pull-out cabinet. Ketchup bottles are stored in the pullout cabinet.
