Have you ever decided to declutter your kitchen, only to find you’re reluctant to part with any of your appliances and utensils?
If that’s the case, the solution is not decluttering but finding suitable storage space for the items you have.
If you’re forever delving into cupboards, trying to find something that’s lurking at the back, a pull-out cabinet could be the answer. A pull-out or rotational shelf will give you easy access to every item in the cabinet while still making the most of the space inside.
These shelves could be used to hold spice jars and other cooking supplies that you need to hand. It keeps these items hidden from view but in an organised way.
Tall cabinets are ideal if you have outsize items such as food processors and blenders and fryers. If these items are not in regular use, you won’t want them permanently taking up valuable space on your worktop. If you have large cabinets, they can be stored away when not in use.
An extra-large kitchen cabinet with a higher carcase will give you 10% more storage space
than a standard height cupboard. As well as extra-large cabinets, fitting 14cm tall drawers will provide welcome additional drawer space.
Do you struggle to find room in your current drawers for awkward cooking utensils such as wooden mallets, rolling pins and tongs? With high drawers, these utensils can be stored away easily.
Don’t let the corners of your kitchen go to waste when you can install both base and upper corner cabinets.
Specially designed corner cabinets use a non-standard configuration to avoid obstructions by perpendicular doors. Internal shelving systems such as custom-shaped shelves and drawers will solve the problem of reaching into cabinets deeper than 24 inches.
Corner cupboards provide additional storage space and create a clean visual line in the design of your kitchen with no gaps.
Another option is to fit a utensil rack for utensils such as spatulas, ladles, tongs and scissors. You can fit as many hooks as you require.
In some kitchens, a rack can be fitted to a low ceiling beam and used to hold pots and pans.
It makes sense to save the space in your cabinets and drawers for your functional appliances and put your attractive items out on display.
Decorating shelves with painted crockery or copper pots and pans will brighten the look of the kitchen and save on valuable cupboard space.
If you don’t want large areas to be taken up with waste bins, you can build them into cabinets. Under the sink is the most popular place to house a rubbish bin as it’s convenient for scraping waste from plates and it utilises an awkwardly shaped space.
Another option is to fit corner mechanisms for waste storage and make use of redundant corner space under your worktops.
