Small kitchen appliance storage options include the kitchen counter, cupboards, pantry shelves, appliance garages and custom shelves. Store frequently used appliances in an easily accessible location.
The counter is an option in a spacious kitchen with plenty of work space. Choose this option for appliances that can be put on display, such as a stainless steel stand mixer. Counter storage works well for appliances as well.
An appliance garage is a way to store appliances on the counter top without having them in plain sight. The appliances rest on the counter below an upper cabinet. Custom doors installed flush with the existing cabinetry swing or roll to hide the appliances when not in use.
Cabinet and pantry shelves offer another storage option for small kitchen appliances. Customize the space for the appliances by installing pull-out shelves. This allows for full use of the cabinet space and provides easy access to appliances stored in the back.
If the existing shelves in the kitchen are full, build custom shelves for the appliances. Use open spaces above cabinets or on empty walls to create custom shelving. Another option is adding an enclosed, freestanding cabinet or kitchen island with hidden storage to hold the appliances.
