Top tips for increasing storage in your kitchen

Storage in your kitchen is incredibly important. And you can add more storage, without using up much in the way of additional space, with these tips:

  • Choose a pull out pantry- a narrow shelf rack that pulls out from the side of the cupboard or fridge, at the end of your worktops, can house your jars, spices, or tins of food, without taking up cupboard space. Typically these are less than 15cm wide and make use of space that would otherwise be wasted.
  • Use drawer or cupboard dividers- using special dividers or compartments for your cupboards or drawers can be very useful for storing larger items vertically, rather than horizontally. And this means that instead of stacking items on top of each other, you can actually fit more into the space.
  • Choose “magic” cupboards- so called “magic” cupboards have been used for the past couple of decades to help store more items in large corner cupboards. These cupboards open out with additional space inside and some even use a rack or shelf system within.
