As featured on Houzz – kitchen bins and laundry baskets

Jennifer Chong in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK on HouzzWell first off can I just wish you all a very Happy New Year! It’s a few days late but this is my first post of 2017 so what you gonna do? It’s been a year since I started blogging and it’s been a lot more fun than I expected leading to loads of opportunities, including writing for Houzz. My articles have generated a lot of interest and I’m pleased to say that many of them now appear in their ‘Most Popular‘ section! It’s so lovely to hear when readers enjoy the features and find them useful, so thank you to everyone that reads, likes, follows and shares. You’re all super stars!

House goals: The Kitchen Larder

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Anyone who knows me well will know that I love food. I love eating it, I love cooking it, I love how it looks, I love the aromas, I’m pretty much obsessed with it. For me, cooking and baking is therapeutic, giving me time to focus solely on the task in hand and block out everything else. It helps to clear my mind and provides an experimental outlet for me to create tasty dishes that bring joy to those who eat them (unless something goes very wrong).

My kitchen is bursting at the seams with gadgets and ingredients and the never-ending quest for storage is a perpetual challenge. Every space is filled in the blink of an eye with more “essential” items. For a while, I longed for a dedicated larder cupboard. As I got older, I felt my desire for a walk-in wardrobe shift towards a walk-in larder. The dream has since been upgraded to a Nigella-style walk through pantry. What next? Pretty soon my kitchen will take over the entire house. I feel it’s only a matter of time.

So, fellow foodies, whether you have loads of space or things are a little tight, here’s how to create your own swoon-worthy larder area.
