Space – Optimization

The easy way to create extra storage space

How much storage space you need is dependent upon you: how many people are in your household, your shopping habits, and your cooking preferences. Do you want to store your rolling pin, cookie cutters and cake decorating tip set in a top drawer (it is a shallow, top drawer after all)? You don’t bake. Maybe an interior roll-out behind the second drawer makes more sense to store these things.


Storage space needs change

Kitchens normally last 15 years or longer and that's why you should consider future needs when planning your kitchen.

Household and lifestyle

Anyone who has a large family, or enjoys entertaining, should plan more storage for items such as flatware, dishes, pots, pans, and utensils.


Cooking and shopping habits

Your cooking and shopping habits determine the storage space that you need. Someone who shops in bulk has different storage needs than someone who shops weekly. The same is true for someone who loves to cook and bake vs. someone who prefers to eat out more often.

Make the most of available space

How can you make the most of the available space in your kitchen? Consider using wider cabinets with deep drawers to store things like plates, plastic containers, mixing bowls and strainers. Or, think about adding an interior roll-out to a deep drawer to store smaller, seldom used items. Also, look at cabinet differences; different construction methods can offer more, or less, accessible storage space.


Wider drawers

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

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

Think inside the box

All it takes is a little creativity to make the space in your kitchen suit your needs. First, determine what storage items should be stored together, then consider the priorities, amounts and sizes of items when choosing your cabinets.
