Another nice pull-out storage solution is the large wicker basket, ideal for storing fruit and veg. By allowing some ventilation, these baskets help keep the veg in good condition, whilst also offering some protection from light and the kitchen environment. Having the basket on a runner provides a clear view of the contents, helping you to keep track of your supplies. The dimensions of the basket are spacious enough that the contents need not be packed too tightly, helping to protect against bruising.
Including this feature in an island or larder can add a nice rustic touch to a modern style. During the summer and autumn months, when local produce is at it’s most plentiful, what could be better.
