The best new kitchen storage trends–a walk-in larder

Last Updated on : 1st March 2019

Many homes had walk-in larders in times gone by, but with the advent of fitted kitchens they fell out of favour. However, the advantage of having your dry goods’ storage space all in one place makes it much easier to locate things, and larders are having a well-deserved renaissance.

A larder is more relevant now than ever before, as the need for compact, coherent storage space where all dry goods can go is necessary to keep today’s often open-plan kitchens clutter free.

Think of a larder in the same way you would your utility room, an area where all relevant food stuffs and kitchen equipment such as food mixers are grouped together. Consider what is to be stored or kept out of sight, and/or what needs to be easy access.It can be as large as your space will allow or tucked in and hidden in a run of cabinetry.

A well-planned larder is a home for storage for all your non-perishables – dry goods, vegetables, bottles, anything you need to see in one hit.It will be equipped with everything from open vegetable racks to wine storage, deep drawers, and plenty of open shelving. Some even have sinks for prepping vegetables and marble shelves for cooler storage.

Your larder can either be of the walk-in type, discreetly hidden behind pockets doors that slide and pivot out of sight (a great solution for storage, particularly in tight spaces) or behind Crittall-style glazing, which does require you to be somewhat neater if viewed from the kitchen. It can also be disguised in a run of kitchen cabinets.

If you have the luxury of space, a walk-in larder is the ultimate storage solution. Hidden by a door or doors in a run of cabinets,it opens to reveal storage the storage space. Wine coolers find a perfect home in a walk-in larder and it also helps if the fridge-freezer is nearby.

If you choose a bespoke design, the larder can be tailored to fit the space you have available and to the style of your kitchen. The best bespoke larders are capacious, packed with shelving and tons of internal storage including drawers deep enough to accommodate cereal packets.

Another advantage is that a larder will enable you to see everything in one go, without having to dig around at the back of a cupboard – deep drawers that hold a huge amount help facilitate this, as you can view everything from above. Typically, they’ll be in the same finish as the rest of the kitchen, so if they are viewed from elsewhere, through glazing for example, they’ll look good too. Your fridge-freezer can be accommodated in there as well – a solution that may be desirable if your kitchen is part of your main living space. So a well-planned larder will provide you with flexible storage and a clutter-free environment.
