Organising the kitchen, 12 practical ideas
The kitchen, the heart of the home, often becomes the epicentre of chaos. It’s quite normal when there are a lot of people in the house or if we’re prone to being absent-minded. But fear not! At Design Kitchen we understand the challenges facing your culinary space and we’re here to offer practical solutions that will transform clutter into perfect organisation.
From clever storage tricks to innovative ideas for maximising every nook and cranny, we’ve put together a series of tips designed to make your kitchen not only functional, but also a tidy and aesthetically pleasing space.
12 practical ideas for kitchen organisation
- Camouflaged recycling bins: Why are they great? Because they encourage recycling without sacrificing style. Integrate discreet recycling bins that blend in with the kitchen design. There are a multitude of systems and solutions we can suggest.
- Pull-out corner units: Pull-out corner trays maximise space that is often wasted. They were a revolution at the time, and are still widely used to make the most of space.
- Built-in wine cooler: A built-in wine cooler is not only elegant, but also ensures that your wines are stored correctly. Having your wines ready to be enjoyed at any time is a quantum leap in quality for any gourmet.
- Drawers adapted to the sink: Install drawers that fit around the sink. You will even make use of those corners that are often left unused and you will enjoy a more spacious kitchen.
- Double function drawers: We design drawers that serve as two in one. Store crockery in the lower part and cutlery in the upper part, optimising the height of the unit.
- Organise your drawers: Drawer organisers make it easy to find and keep things tidy. Find them in different materials and colours to suit your aesthetic.
- Sliding shelves in the base units: Incorporate sliding shelves in the base units for easy access to pots, pans and other utensils. So you don’t have to bend over or stack them up like little towers of Babel.
- Vertical storage in the pantry: We can install shelves or hooks on the pantry doors to hang utensils, cutting boards or bags. It is a simple solution that helps to organise the kitchen and get more out of your pantry.
- Sliding trays for pots and pans: Incorporate sliding trays in the cupboards for pots and pans. It avoids stacking and makes it easier to access each one.
- Hanging cup shelves: If it suits your style, hanging shelves can be installed under cupboards to hang cups. It frees up cupboard space and creates a decorative corner.
- Magnetic spice walls: Create a magnetic wall for spice containers. You will have easy access to your condiments and add a decorative element.
- Storage jars at a glance: Store dry ingredients in transparent jars. Not only is it practical, but it also adds a decorative touch to the kitchen.
Some of these ideas are sure to fit in perfectly with your kitchen. If you put them into practice you will achieve a more functional space, where design and organisation are in harmony.
