Transform your kitchen with these clever wall storage ideas © next125 Transform your kitchen with these clever wall storage ideas Wall cabinets should never be an afterthought in any kitchen.

Whether you're storing tableware or spices, the wall cabinet should offer just as much design potential as other areas of your kitchen. It's not just the functionality that needs to be considered, but the ability to effortlessly merge practicality with aesthetics, creating storage with real design oomph.

The next125 collection, a premium range from German kitchen giant Schüller, showcases the latest contemporary wall hung designs – to cater for all styles and uses – that's perfect for the modern kitchen. At the very least, it'll provide you with inspiration to create the kitchen of your dreams.

Take a look at the different ways you can personalise your kitchen wall cabinets below:

1. LOOK UP

The traditional side opening cabinets often mean stepping back when opening. But how is that changing? Opt for fronts that raise upwards. With a more ergonomic design, this push front design allows for wider wall cabinets and more planning options.

Are there items you use every day that's beautiful enough to be on display? Wall cabinets are great for storing items but with a little creative consideration, they can become a feature in their own right. Invest in a wall cabinet with a sliding front – this offers the perfect balance of functionality and aesthetics and throws in just the right amount of flexibility.

Say goodbye to unattractive under cabinet lighting. LED lighting solutions are now an integral part of the kitchen cabinet – it creates a functional illumination that is aesthetically pleasing to look at.

Start thinking 'wall storage' rather than 'wall cabinets'. If you throw in a dash of colour with an open cabinet, designs then become functional statements.

Turn conventional kitchen design on its head by hanging base units on the wall and turning wall cabinets into an independent design feature. Coordinating the wall panels with door fronts and adding a contrasting colour to wall storage creates wow factor with instant magnitude.
