There is no one "right" way to store kitchen appliances. Your organizing and storage scheme will depend on what type of cook you are, which appliances you use regularly and the size of your kitchen cabinet storage space.
That noted, following these guidelines will make appliance storage for any cook, in every kitchen, a bit easier.
