Don’t dismiss modernLovers of modern design take note: you, too, can have a larder. These contemporary flat-fronted, bi-fold doors cleverly concertina back to reveal masses of handy extra storage space – great for breakfast kit – and look really at home in this slick kitchen.

Use to increase functional spaceA whole larder space, complete with shelves, drawers and worktop, is concealed behind a super-sleek folding door. A single door fitting this wide space would protrude too far into the room when open. By using a folding design, the problem is solved, so that this kitchen in a cupboard can be left open while in use, with its slim door protruding only a little way into the room.Check out these nifty kitchen pantry designs.

Lay out breakfast items in one placeMake breakfast a breeze by arranging items – from food to appliances – all in one area, so they are on hand for the morning rush. You could even have a stash of granola bars handy for anyone running a little late.

Create a breakfast barCoffee? Check. Cereal? Check. Toast? Check. Everything you need first thing is tucked away behind bifold doors, which would leave the main cooking area free of clutter. Unless you have a teenager in the house who insists on a fry-up first thing, of course…

Build a bijou pantryYou need very little space to create a food haven in your kitchen. A pantry can be as small as a glorified cupboard, but the key to a good one is that there is both shelving and display areas: you need places to hide the messy things, and then areas to keep your everyday foods in lovely containers and really do some showing off. Try incorporating a worktop, too, to make it super-functional; this pantry has a breakfast station for speedy morning snacking, and the mess can be hidden behind closed doors until you return in the evening.If you can get some sort of lighting into the space, too, it will help it look more like a pantry than a dark cupboard. Don’t be afraid to use the full height of the space; keeping wine higher up, for example, can make a fun feature. And it requires a bit more effort to get that Friday tipple, which makes it taste all the better.

Breakfast cabinetsThe most important meal of the day requires serious consideration. Factoring in storage for cereals, jams, teas and coffee is tough enough, but if you don’t want the toaster and coffee maker cluttering your worktop, then you’ll need to work them into your storage plan, too. At EuroCucina, Toncelli’s impressive Chef de Cuisine tall unit, designed to store all of your breakfast essentials and much more besides, was just one of the desirable models on show. This tall breakfast cabinet is another great example: what it lacks in width, it makes up for in shelves, drawers, cubbyholes and a work surface for preparing coffee and toast.

Create your own breakfast stationYou don’t have to fit a purpose-built cabinet to rock the breakfast zone idea. Just make sure your kettle, coffee machine, toaster and, ideally, cups and teabags, are located in one designated area of your kitchen worktop to make breakfast a breeze.
