When it comes to storage, organisation and functionality of your kitchen, it sometimes helps to think outside of the box. With some clever creativity you can turn the everyday items like cutlery into fun and quirky details. Get your kitchen into shipshape with these design led and convenient solutions.
1. Ladder love
Aim high in the style stakes and reach for the top. Install a rail and rolling ladder in your kitchen – the type you’ve seen in libraries. On a budget? Hang a folding stool on the wall or the back of your pantry door.
2. Cute cutlery
Preserving seemed like a good idea but you’ve thought better about it? So what to do with all those jars? Put them to use as cutlery, candle and tea-light holders and show them off in a vintage caddy!
3. Dream drawers
Ramp up the functionality of a freestanding food-prep island with a utensil or cutlery drawer or both. Even if your drawer is of standard depth, you can maximise the storage with movable drawer inserts.
One rail, many hooks and pots, pans, utensils, even dried herbs have a place to call home!
5. On display
Add style and function to your kitchen with smart open storage. In essence, these elongated and narrow cubbies follow the line of the benchtop while the material mirrors the work surface below. Cohesion works every time!
