Storing The Essentials Over Christmas

Storing The Essentials Over Christmas

With Christmas a mere 4 weeks away, the time has come to think about preparing for the festivities and with a house full of family and friends, your kitchen is never busier than in the countdown to Christmas. From the sheer volume of food squirreled away for Christmas Day to the stock of drinks needed to see you through to the New Year, your kitchen storage will be tested like never before.

With that in mind, here are a few tips from us on handy storage solutions, the perfect place to store festive treats and essential preparations for when your guests arrive this Christmas…

The Pantry

The pantry is made for Christmas and whether yours is integrated within your kitchen cabinetry or you’re the proud owner of an enviable walk-in design, the pantry is ideal for storing all the essentials. From extra mince pies, to the all-important cranberry sauce, festive baking ingredients and even enough space to tidy away appliances, the pantry ensures a place for everything.

Top tip: it never hurts to buy extras when it comes to the essentials – it’s inevitable that something will get misplaced and you’ll thank yourself later!

The Island

The kitchen island is the ultimate multitasker, providing extra worktop space, clever storage solutions and depending on the design, a built-in breakfast bar. Don’t forget to make the most of your island worktop when prepping Christmas dinner or serving cocktails and canapés to guests. When it comes to storage, the cupboards of your kitchen island can be filled to the brim with non-perishables, from crisps and crackers to the everyday essentials of cereal, sauces and soup.

The Bar

With party season in full swing, there’s no better time for a bar area in your kitchen. Whether you’re having a relaxed gathering with friends over a glass of mulled wine or throwing a New Year’s Eve party, you’ll need your bar well stocked for guests arriving throughout the festivities. Display cabinets and bespoke wine racks are perfect for creating a display of your drinks collection, whilst a wine fridge allows you to achieve that perfect level of chill. From cocktails to classic G&T’s and bottles of bubbles – make the most of your bar over Christmas!

  • We are conscious of our environmental footprint 👣 Our reclaimed wood is salvaged from old barns, factories and warehouses. No piece of reclaimed wood is ever the same. Not only do we love the rawness of the material, we are saving it from going in landfill ♻️ .
