How to add a larder to your kitchen
A larder can be a real space-saver in a kitchen of any size. Their rise to fame started in the Victorian period, and in more recent years, they have found themselves back in fashion in contemporary kitchens.
A traditional larder was typically a large free-standing unit or small room within the kitchen. Larders of this style are a fantastic choice for those who both have a large kitchen and prefer traditional design. If there’s not already a separate larder space in your kitchen, one option you’ll be looking at is a standalone unit
The free-standing units usually offer storage in the form of shelving and drawers hidden behind a set of double doors. Larder rooms, in comparison, are typically made up of shelving set from the floor to the ceiling of the room, offering space for huge amounts of ingredients and appliances.
A traditional part of any kitchen, larders take storage to another level, with space for small appliances, as well as everything you need for a good day’s baking, and more. Contrast the interior with the exterior for a modern effect. Use rich wood accents to warm up any kitchen and add a natural element.
