Space – Optimisation

The easy way to create extra storage space

How big is your family, what are your buying and eating habits, what kind of life do you lead? Your storage space needs depend on a great many different factors. You’d like to coax as much storage space as possible out of your kitchen? Be inspired by our ideas.

Storage space needs differ

The amount of storage space you need will depend on your personal requirements. Kitchens normally last 15 years or longer and that's why you should consider future needs when planning your kitchen.

Size of household and lifestyle

If you've got a big family, you'll need more storage space - especially for dinnerware, pots and pans and food. Your storage space requirements will also depend on your personal lifestyle, for example, if you regularly entertain guests.

Cooking and buying habits

If you like to cook intricate dishes, make sure you have enough space for special cooking utensils and equipment. If you go shopping often, you'll need less space for provisions than someone who does bulk buying once or twice a month.

Make optimal use of storage space

One of the most important goals of kitchen planning is to make the most of the space available. Wider, higher and deeper pull-outs create extra storage space - space which would otherwise be wasted.


Wider pull-outs

By using a wide pull-out instead of two narrow ones, you can create up to 15% more storage space.

Deeper pull-outs

If you’ve got enough space, use deeper pull-outs. This produces up to 30% more storage space.

Higher sides

Higher pull-outs with closed side panels use every inch of storage space available. Items can be stacked more easily and you gain up to 55% more space.

Low plinth height

Cabinets with a low plinth provide much more storage space than cabinets with a high plinth.

‘It’s worth asking about innovative cabinet solutions. They create storage space in places you would never have expected.’

Create new storage space

Functional cabinet solutions bring new storage space into your kitchen. They give you extra space for even more kitchen implements.
