A few clever storage solutions can add a lot more storage to your kitchen and make it more practical as well.
Whether it is a corner cabinet with bi-fold doors or a blind cabinet which has a single door at one end, the corners of your kitchen are notorious storage black holes. Put something up the back and you may never see it again! The solution is swivel out shelving units for blind cabinets and pull-out carousels for corner cabinets. The shelving gives you a lot of storage all the way into the cabinet and as you can pull them right out. It’s more practical because you can actually get to the items on the shelves.
Pull things out
The latest features of new kitchens are heavy-duty drawers on base cabinets, so you can pull everything out for easy access. You can achieve the same effect in your existing kitchen by installing slide out wire basket units and there’s a wide range to suit your particular situation. Single baskets that sit on the floor or sides of a cabinet are great for one off situation or there are tiered models so the whole contents of the cabinet can be pulled out in front of you. Tall models are also available for use in pantry cupboards.
Don't forget the doors
The inside of your cabinet doors can also become handy storage places. The pantry door is a great spot for a narrow spice rack, while you can maximise under sink storage with a rack attached to the inside of the door. Kitchen tidies can also be attached to the door under your sink, so they swivel out when the door is opened.
Rack it up
Even for cabinets with shelves that have easy access, you can still make more use of the space and increase their storage capacity. Inexpensive shelf stackers create extra shelf space above the items you already have sitting on the shelf.
