Traditional kitchen food storage space makes comeback

The humble pantry is trendy again – although now it’s being combined with an ‘appliance garage’ as Brits establish a new post-pandemic kitchen for the 21st Century.

That’s according to new findings from home improvement retailer Wickes, which found that the pantry or larder cupboard, including budget-friendly corner larders, is one of the most sought-after kitchen items for 2023.

And that’s being combined with another hot kitchen trend: ‘the appliance garage’, which provides an additional storage space for kitchen appliances such as air fryer, multicooker, milk frother, coffee machine, ice-cream maker and juicer – providing an all-new sleek, clutter-free kitchen.

These are just some of the trends in the new Wickes Great Kitchen Report, which reveals that colourful kitchens are also increasingly in demand, with blues and forest greens among the most popular options.

Aston spoke to Professor Deborah Sugg Ryan.
