Blending functional storage with beautiful overall design is a key trend from our 2022 home trends outlook. Thoughtfully designed storage can streamline the flow of your home and help create spaces that are visually stunning inside and out. Here are ten of our favorite home storage trends to consider for your next remodel along with examples from our recent projects.

1. Pull-out drawers are a highly effective way to add easy-access storage in any space with cabinetry. Let your drawers work for you!

2. Modern larder cupboards add unique, customized storage to your home. Create a baking station in your kitchen or a sewing station in your craft room! Leave the retractable doors open for display and close them for an instantly clean look. Our Tower Lakes kitchen remodel features a fun pull-out espresso station within a larder cupboard by Dura Supreme Cabinetry.

3. Relocate your microwave or other appliances to your island to streamline kitchen flow and break up a wall of appliances.

4. Laundry pull-out bins relocate freestanding hampers to save floor space and keep messes from piling up in your laundry room. This mobile laundry workstation features pull-out bins and drying racks with added counter space for folding.

5. Galley sink workstations are the perfect way to effectively save counter space and time for everyday routines. Insert options are customizable to your needs, making meal prep and cleanup a breeze.

6. An organized spice rack is tough to achieve and maintain with traditional spinning racks or stands. A vertical pull-out spice rack or custom drawer insert prevents frustration and adds long-term organization to your kitchen.

7. Mixer lifts keep your KitchenAid mixer off the counter while maintaining accessibility. No more struggling to take your mixer in and out of storage anymore!

8. Save counter space with a utensil pantry. This concept can be implemented in bathrooms as well with storage drawer organizers for your hairdryer, hot tools, brushes, and hair products.

9. Spacious kitchen islands seamlessly blend functional storage and additional seating. Our Huntley kitchen remodel features a statement island to create unique seating spaces and storage options.

10. Custom living room built-ins double as a unique design moment in your home as well as customized storage for everything a host might need. Keep blankets, toys, and games organized in one space while adding additional character to your home.
