But if you’re constantly balancing pan lids in a precarious pile on a shelf, feast your eyes on the simple solution inside this drawer. A single piece of wood is enough to divide the pan drawer into one area for cooking vessels and another for lids.
Customized pot and pan storage. I hate crouching down to put away pots, pans and their lids in a regular cupboard. It takes time to pull out the smaller ones so you can reach back in to put away larger pots — then you have to put all of the smaller ones back in. Having an organized rollout drawer makes it easy to put pots and lids away. Even the ones that go in the back.
Cabinet style and a little more on flooring. Avoid ornate moldings on your cabinetry. They are pretty, but it takes extra time to wipe around all the nooks and crannies. Slab-front cabinets are the easiest to wipe off. Shaker style is another good choice, and it blends with any kitchen style, from traditional to contemporary. This floor looks like wood but is actually porcelain tile planks. You can also use luxury vinyl tile planks in a wood look. They are very convincing, are resistant to water and require nothing but damp mopping.
Large-format tiles are another great flooring option. There are tiles as large as 24 inches by 48 inches. Glazed tiles are impervious to kitchen spills, and the minimal amount of grout lines keeps scrubbing to a minimum. Just as on your countertops, epoxy grout is a better choice here than traditional grout.
Backsplash. Your backsplash material should also be low maintenance and easy to clean. Full-sheet materials like this back-painted glass eliminate grout lines. You can use quartz or any stone slab as a backsplash. Laminate is another large-sheet material you can use that is very low cost. All are easier to clean than mosaics of any kind.
used Ikea cabinet carcasses, and fitted two wall units one above the other. They then added a large fridge door over the top of each pair to give the run a streamlined finish. The couple didn’t waste any space at all, even along the left-hand wall. Here, the shallow fitted cabinets and open shelves provide storage without intruding too much on the floor area: e.g. above the radiator if it's horizontal, or a tall to the side of vertical?
