The digital kitchen cookbook shelf

The digital kitchen cookbook shelf

The right kitchen cupboards are indispensable. Custom cabinets are great for every kind of storage you could need. And there are probably few shelves in the kitchen you’re more proud of than the one holding your vast and beautiful cookbook collection. Except, the problem is, you’ve run out of room.

You’re not the only one. But rather than face the troubles of generations before, consider expanding your cookbook collection in a new and space-saving direction – digitally, that is.

With the advent of iPads and other tablets, as well as the rise of eReaders like the Amazon Kindle or the Barnes & Noble Nook, cookbooks are no longer limited to paper. With gorgeous high-def photos and illustrations, you’ll never lack for visual stimulation as you peruse new recipes. And the fact of the matter is, hooked up to WiFi, your tablet or eReader probably has access to the billion or so recipes that litter the internet! With the right stand, tablet apps and – of course – books, you’ll be set to explore a whole new side of cooking.

Granted, digital cookbooks aren’t to everyone’s taste. For those who love the feel of glossy paper between their fingers, there’s always room for more shelving and custom cabinets.
